6/17/10 UPDATE: Oh boy peeps are we having fun! Today we made a huge mess for our foster mom to clean up and some of us even got dirty. Silly Molson had to have a chunk of fur cut off of him/her this morning because apparently s/he thought it would be fun to roll around in wet poop! There ya go Molson! Keep foster mom working hard! And, we have devised a plan for when she’s not looking… we’ve all taken to pushing the pen so we can go out and lay down on the hardwood floor (and poop on it of course). We’re really keeping her busy. But we’re still just babies and having the time of our lives! Wooohoooo!!! Now, I ask you, how in the world can you be mad at our little faces??? She can’t! :)

6/9/10: Hi everyone! My name is Newfie and I know you’ve been following my mommy’s story for a few weeks now.

This is me! This is me...Newfie!!!

This is me! This is me...Newfie!!!

Our mommy, TigerLily, was part of the large angora rabbit seizure case up in Canada and thankfully, we weren’t left behind. We made our way down to the U.S. on May 15th with many other angoras and from there was placed in a loving foster home.

Isn't my mom beautiful?

We are now just about 5.5 weeks old and are thriving, growing furrier and furrier with each passing day.

This is Yukon :)

It’s me and my siblings: Yukon, Maple, Molson, Klondike and Eskimo. And of course our mom TigerLily! We can’t forget about her! We love her with all our itty bitty hearts. Although, I think that now that we are mobile and are everywhere, we can drive her a bit crazy.

Our foster mom lets her out to play in the room without us while we’re stuck in the expen. No fair! Okay, okay, so she lets us out too, especially when she’s cleaning our area. We certainly do make a mess, but we’re just babies! We’re just having fun!

My dear Maple :) Ohhhh Maple you crazy little bun with those ears!

Anyway, I overheard that you humans are showing a lot of interest in us. Well that is just great and we understand because we are just so gosh darn cute!!! But we will not be available for adoption until we are old enough to be spayed and neutered. Lord knows, we don’t want another explosion of baby bunnies!!!

Klondike! Sit still so she can take our picture! Geesh!

And we need to be spayed and neutered for health and behavior reasons as well. For boys that means about 3 months old or so and for the girls, about 5 months old. Our mommy won’t be available until after she’s done nursing us and she’s spayed as well. And of course all of us are going to need a human slave that is going to be willing to keep up with our long fuzzy fur. We will need daily and weekly grooming sessions so we don’t get matted.

Apparently Eskimo wasn't too cooperative with picture taking either.

For now, you can follow us on the blog and then once we are available for adoption, you will see us on the regular site: www.rabbitnetwork.org under Bachelors and Bachelorettes and maybe even Pairs if a few of us manage to stay bonded. I hope so! We do love each other. Until then however, please understand that HRN does not “hold” or “reserve” bunnies for any reason.

That’s all for now humans! Gotta get back to raising ruckus with my brothers and sisters! Talk soon.
