As a bunny owner, i obviously take a lot of my bunnies photos like what other bunny owners do. Of course, taking bunny's photo is not as easy as i think, bunny in general, does not like to be approached closely which is due to the fact that they are born to be a prey, their pair of big ear is highly sensitive even to the softest sound and be able to turn 360 degree (fren, don't be surprise, i am not joking.........) in order for them to escape fast from their predator........so my point is, taking bunny's front shot is more difficult compare to their butt's shot cos they will either hoop away or ....try to sniff at your camera to see whether it is something chewable or not. so, this has ended up that i take photo behind of my buns and guess what, my buns' butt seem to look beautiful as well.............so, folks, don't just admire J.Lo butt, bunny's butt is not that bad anyway......haha

Besides of my Coco did sufer from a very light mange problem while he was approximately one and a half month old, both my Coco and June have so far, never fell sick for the past one and a half years. Of course, i dare not take that for granted and i really have to thank God for giving me two healthy bunnies (though some have commented that my buns look a bit skinny).
Right from the first day that i brought both my buns home, i took the breeder advise on giving my buns very simple food which is pellet, hay and water. Eventhough i have done some reading on bunny diet plan, i dare not give it a try cos i know that bunny has a highly sensitive stomach and it easily get upside down. Hence, my buns stick on the three abovementioned items for more than one year. Just a few months back, i decided to give my buns a try on treats such as carrot, apple, papaya tablet and pineapple juice and luckily, they manage to adapt it quite well and in fact, they will chase after me if they saw me holding one of those treats, well, they just love it. However, my buns do not seem to eat vege eventhough i have given them a try on siao pak chai, brocoli, mint, kangkung and etc...........i presume this is may be due to their strong habitual character which make them not simply try on other staffs..........
Below are the pictures that i would like to share pertaining to my buns' diet plan.....
1.Oxbow Pellet - Bunny Basic/T (Timorthy Hay based)
2.Oxbow Timorthy Hay and Oat Hay
3. Apple (red and green) and carrot
4. Oxbow - Papaya Tablets
5. Pinapple juice and
6. Clean water (preferably let bunny drink it directly from the bowl)
* Oxbow is one of the best brand and highly recommended rabbit foods by local breeders.
All the above items are some of the foods which is commonly cater for bunny. For me, i would want to stress more on giving bunny a lot of hay in order to prevent fur block (papaya tablets and pineapple juice can also help on this). That is why for pellet, i give my buns with timorthy hay based, that is only once in the day and i usually i feed them in the morning. For the rest of the day, i give them unlimited hay. Munching on hay can also help to prevent bunny's teeth from overgrowing. In term of item 3 and 5, it is just a treat and my bun will have it twice in a week with only small amount of it. For item 4, both my buns each have one tablet a day and .........Oh yes, before i forget, bunny does produce soft stools and they will eat it directly from their anus. These soft stools are full of nutricent and is one of the essential foods for bunny as well.
So, after a good meal, both my buns love to rest like that..............
and lastly, sufficient exercise and a lot of LOVES are equally important for the health of a bunny.

Coco and June were bonded while they were about 2 months old. I never see them fight before, not even one. May be it is because of Coco is a buck and June is a doe. Normally, same sex will tend to fight in order to show who is the boss. If it is opposite sex, i presume they will fall in love which i think it applies to Coco and June. Both my sweeties love to play with each other, chasing around, sleep together and they just love to stick together. This video was taken while they were playing in the kitchen, June was the one who try to jump over Coco and Coco was so submissive, he stayed still and just let June did whatever she liked.

I received a SMS last few days from one of my fren who happened to browse my "My Bunnies and I" blog. She was so curious that why i mentioned three bunnies where all this while, as far as she can remember, there was only two.
Before i started to have "My Bunnies and I" blog, i actually have in my mind that i want to bring out the stories of my three sweet bunnies. That is why i started to introduce June and Coco first and then i go back to the days that i first became a bunny owner. So......to cut the story short, Guinness managed to be with me for only one month. She was killed by a big cat (i suspect) in one of the rainy midnight. I brought Guinness to the vet a day before she was killed and i still remembered that the vet told me Guinness was perfectly healthy, she put on and her mange problem was cured. I suspect she was pulled out violently by a big cat and what she left behind for me was her blood, fur and of course sweet memory. I could not managed to find her body and of course, heart wrenching........
From there on, i always advise or suggest bunny owner to keep their bunny in house. Bunny is very sweet and adorable to me but what i forget is that they are too attractive to their predator as well. Oh.........yes, before i forget, Coco was nearly killed on that night as well, his loopy ear and front paw were scratched and bleeding, the wound mark can still be seen until now.
So, this is how June come into picture........anyway, i would like to dedicate this particular post to my sweetheart Guinness, may you RIP, mummy always loves you and mummy know that you will be happy forever just right across the rainbow bridge...
Just to share with u all who owned pets........
"Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together...." - Author unknown.
