Christmas bunny

Chippy is almost ready for Christmas

 I've been thinking about Christmas-the cards are Not ready.
 The house *just* got decorated it is so pretty.But...

I am exhausted & my humans have been thru a lot. She has been in & out of the Hosp & to the Dr a lot.
so things have grinded to a halt-life has a new way of humming.We live*bunny style* more relaxed. Have to
remove stress & take things easy..bunny zen..(she has a special dr just for her kidneys)
gotta keep my things out of the way but all the presents are here -->just not wrapped  and not to the post yet,there is a plan for everything right Chippy?
Right Chippy?

MWD Emir

WMD Emir, a K9  military working dog assigned to the 447th Air Expeditionary Group, United States Air force, Kirkland Air force base New Mexico, with a total of four deployments oversees to Iraq. Emir was trained as a dual purpose military dog, explosive detection and patrol canine. Emir was born August 3, 2003 and went to Lackland Air force base, The 341st Training Squadron for his basic and combat training. While in his initial training Emir flunked out of bomb school, which was until he managed to bite off his tail, twice. Emir underwent surgery to repair what was left of his tail only to return to bomb school and pass as the best bomb dog in his class. His nickname became “stump”. Emir earned several awards during his six years of military service. In December of 2008 Emir received a certificate of appreciation for his service provided to the Commander in Chief, President George W. Bush at Sather Air Base in Baghdad, Iraq. Emir was medically retired from the military for a back injury while on active duty. Emir was responsible for saving countless lives of our service members while deployed in his finding of bombs, IEDs and explosive materials belonging to the enemy. Today in retirement Emir struggles with his back injury that causes limited mobility and pain in his lower back, hips and hind legs. He was adopted by Lani Singh in January 2012 and relocated to Colorado Springs, Colorado. Emir at the age of eight and a half is enjoying his retirement he is in need of long term rehabilitation. He is receiving hydrotherapy at Paws N Tails, medical treatment at Bijou Animal Hospital and chiropractic care at Doctors Chiropractic. Although Emir was determined to be dog aggressive while in the service he has been adjusting well to other animals in his new family- pack.

Please go to this link to see a photo of EMIR and to read a bit more about this magnificent War Dog who is up for a Hero Dog Award ~ & VOTE FOR EMIR

 ALSO You can find Emir on his Facebook page to keep up with all his activities medical appts, see as he begins his wheelchair outings... THE WARRIOR DOG BUILDS himself  up to use the wheelchair -much upper body strength will be needed. Watch as him as He propells that wheelchair around so he can be of Service again-A great Warrior he is. Next I will introduce you to Emir's friend : Carlos... You will LOVE LOVE Carlos a CWD...who just came out of a risky life or death surgery and also a contender for Hero award:

bunny wants some candy

We recieved some movie size boxes of candy we have never had before along with a movie so during family movie day Chocolate Chip came along and always seems to join
in on `snack time' this time he went *nuts* when he came across a box of sweets...


Chocolate Chippy has an Urgent Plea
My husband found me visiting with this guy on line- You see we've been happily married over 30plus years.. So Finding me spending so much time Online with this guy is very out of the norm for me :0(  But is very different.This guy is not like most. I think you will understand...So let me tell you about him and see what you think...
  You Have to go to these sites and first play the utube
it is about SSD GABE a Military War Dog. The utube shows Gabe in Iraq with his military comrades overseas doing what Gabe does. It tells some of his story-Quite charming, Very Touching. Part of the War that is Never shown... Entire units made up of War Dogs and their Handlers. Unique bonds.

If you never thought about War Dogs Please Do. The bravery within these teams Amazes my mind,  they go in places others can't.  Well That too holds many stories... we support 
 The 2nd link is to VOTE for GABE in the 2012 American Humane Assc Hero Dog Awards  VOTE GABE                                                                                            military paper-go down a few articles to Hero  Dog  GABE                      
Gabe started his duty to this great country in 2006 and has such an impact not only on his handlers life, but American Soldiers in general. From Ft Lewis, WA, to Ft Bliss, TX and from Ft Leonard Wood, MO to Ft Hood, TX. Gabe truly is a hero dog. While deployed to Iraq, he completed over 210 combat missions with 26 finds of explosives and weapons. He also visited wounded troops in combat hospitals and visited children in Elem schools. Gabe was selected as the American Kennel Club Heroic Military Working Dog in 2008 and was the runner up in the military category for the 2011 Hero Dog Award. Gabe retired in 2009 after a very distinguished career earning over 40 awards and coins of excellence for his work. What he does is a love for his country and the people of the United States. We continue to educate children on respect and staying in school and we hope to represent the Military Police is a very positive way for years to come.
Help me out--join GABE -VOTE 
then my Beloved husband will understand *wink* (you know I am teasing right?) when this Beloved Soldier Gabe can go And receive his award. All the bothering  I've been doing to everyone-Well, Actually, I hope everyone sees this as Educating because if you read the stories ... War Dogs are Amazing :o) looking up all my friends searching out voters-conversations explaining War Dogs. Below is part of a photo from the military article.

We should ALL `know' about these Soldiers... the Heros..that they are..

Chip has been worried because something has been different with his `brother'. He went away for several days, when he came back he was different. He had a satellite collar on his neck and his back rt leg had a drain in and was stitched from to bottom. Plus Jol was very stumbly-in pain-it was hard for him to walk. He is mostly blind as it is.  So this photo shows Chip standing guard, showing concern  And he helps Jol to the door...yes he is our seeing eye bunny. But I'll make that another post :0)
Chip found a pkg of  his favorite treats-Alfalfa Slims (from Dr Fosters+Smith) he managed
to relocate it from a corner table over the full length of the sofa, over a tray of Legos,bunched
up on the far end of the sofa by a pillow. Now, mind you this was NOT discovered right way. Chip was  mighty nervous this particular evening. Jumping on and off the sofa like a nutcase. No one noticed because there WAS a pillow in front that rolled off onto the table suddenly! That is when HE got
CAUGHT!  poor Chip... like he never gets fed :-(  Look at that silly face ~ awww
this is the problem-that silly fluffy chubby face is what gets Chip in and out
of SO much trouble.
for the record, he has a 24 dish of pellets-24hr dutch oven container of Timothy-fresh applesauce every day because he DANCES TO THE REFRIGERATOR for it. Yep He will trip us Dancing in the kitchen if he hears someone & his `apply' dish is empty. He has even gotten the Dog to eating  Applesauce??? I never heard  of dogs eating applesauce-BTW-cinnamon applesauce??? they both go for the dish. We have to take it away-Bunny eats then the dog finishes-then dish gets rinsed. ?
Bunny has other food in dishes around the room Fresh Parsley or Basil (we grow it)
or what is at the grocers, treats-omgosh honey hoops-alfalfa slims-yogurt drops

I have a friend with a fabulous company~But I need you your help♥♥ She is interested in doing guess what?? ♥♥Bunnies ♥♥ I'm there.. I'd buy a Bunny Tote♥ Magnet ♥ Decal ♥ possibly a Canvas print although♥ my walls are sooo filled,ceiling down with Will Moses, Wyland prints♥lithographs♥neccessary photos of fur babies♥family and my quilting and my beloved Dads drawings of trees. Hmm where to find room? Back to topic.

bunny dancing in the night

I `discovered' Chip dancing on the table during the dark of the night.
Seems He kept track of where his Crasin jar was put... So I guess He felt
He thought He could have a good 'ol midnight food fest :)

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

this is an old wire I saved from when dear Chip managed to get himself behind our big screen in the living room auughh-suddenly 1 day we loose all volume in speakers then it somes on and off?? surround sound acts weird? TV goes in & out-The LAST THING
we think of is THE BUNNY as the culprit!UNTIL I fiddle with plugs,hours later Loving husband finds this wire above~auughh~Lesson learned with this bunny. I have Never had this with any other bunny. Eeikk..crazy! Bunny Proofed every room.

`caught in the act'..Chippy was trying to break past the TV shelves to get to the
the *wires* that have so carefully been hidden,covered & now masterfully decoyed allover the house. Naughty bunny!

Chocolate Chip loves to eat make that he loves to take paper & eat it into
*circles*... I have found that when I pick up his *circles* they very often have little messages on them... Just what does this mean??

I am not fully sure? But I do keep them all (~.~) This was the Latest!

oh well

oh well.. this is `self serve' what can I say? I have learned so much from this bunny...He is soooo stealth..if you open a door to a room he is NOT allowed in ~ZOOM~ suddenly a waft and breeze flow past you. Before you Have any idea what is going on the door is shuddering & you think you saw something? maybe not? You go to look? Nothing ... Chip is tucked quietly under the bed securely in a tight position- under the MIDDLE of the bed. No Way you are going to get him out. No way! just as he intends..yep! smart bunny.
Just like this treat jar. He just hops up on the arm of the chair - like a parrot. He will do thiseven pick the jar he wants. :0) I admit it is soooo cute. He will get to the point that he will push it right off the darn table - over the edge. :0( an alley opps. Not pretty. He will get in the chair & get it to *rock & rolling* for attention! it is a rocker! Then he will not leave you alone when you sit in it, when you have a movie & snack.
Today, I am relocating things in the living room YIKES! His poor brother dog has gone blind except for a wee tiny bit-the vet says like a` pin hole of light' so we have left things for him to be the same so he `knows where everything is'. But he has trouble getting to outside & is having accidents. SO we have set up potty pads, & we moved 1 of his beds closer to the door & pads & away from the TV & stereo speakers. He has a kennel cab w/ fat homemade mattress & all his toys in the other side of the living room. Chip is having his things moved over that way too. Yikes. We have been slowly doing it for days...inches each day...ughhhh. Cleaning, dusting-Discovering as we go. I discovered Chip has eated an entire part of the dust ruffle off of the Sofa !!!! %@^#@% Photos WILL follow. I resigned myself that it is something that can be replaced a new ruffle or new sofa. But still #$@& !!! Wait until you see it. My minature dutch bunnies Never did this. #&$*%@ MINI REX he is so Freakin smart - I am sure he is doing all this in retaliation for ear cleaning,nail clipping & teeth filing ;0) What do you think? He Adores my DH. And will avoid me now at all cost.... hmmmm. But I am not the `snack master'.
Thats it for now.
{{{bunny hugs}} bless you

Fuzzy wuzzy

 Chip is our Fuzzy wuzzy but is he fuzzy anymore ?
Chippy was NOT very happy about this but w/Rex velveteen
fur.. he needs a little help now & then.

Mini Rex bunny aka/Veleveteens have thick *soft* fur...but every so often they go thru a shed, Chip being a house bunny and-well, being Chip, gets  *disturbed *when his fur is `out of sorts'.
So I help him out. This was a scissor trim,leaving a super soft belly. He *panics* when we do any hygiene activity. We did nails, ears,cleaned his bottom glands,some duct tape down the back to get lose fur. and Chippy is brand new..But Mad
All is well~Chippy got treats~he is mad at me~
~always happens~
I have to beg forgivness! He gives me the *butt* and turns and leaves...will go to anyone but me for a day or 2. I have to get down on the floor, tell him" forgive me I am sorry"  over and over until he turns around to face me...this is for real.

taking advice for Chip's carrot in a box,sshhh

OK  I did it.. Look and see... The carrot is out of the box!  *heehee*     I
I have the carrot set so it is `sticking out of the box'  so we will see what the Chipper doodle will do. Right now he is *thumping mad* at me because I cleaned house `really good', meaning I moved all his`things' so that I could clean. Vacume, dust moved his rocks, his hidey house, his basil-cilantro dish,
his chip dish, all of his toys, his books, his papers..pretty much everything got *touched* yes much to
Chocolate Chips dismay. If you know mini rex's/velveteen's they h-a-t-e change in the least little bit.
He came over sniffing around while I was using duct tape on the carpet trying to get all the
timothy out of the carpet, he came 'round behind me as was wiping the marble fireplace base off with timothy,by then I would have touched everything of Chips. So we set out fresh crasins,new basil,  cilantro, timothy, lined his books & paper back to his cozy corner. When we cleared out of the room, he investigated  everything, Moved some thing around and began an evening of *loud thumping*.

Camera is at the ready, family is in on it..

 LOOK AT THAT FACE  ...awwww I found Chocolate Chip sleeping with his bunny,so cute!
Happy Dreams Chocolate Chip and all the sweet buns who have loving care and prayers for those who are in need of loving care

Basil & Bunny

I just picked this Basil from the herb garden everything is beautiful except a few leaves, I am still
having problems with *something* making holes see the few leaves in the front? It is now just a few~it had been, ALOT of leaves, I have been working on this, I have it figured out! My menace-
A Grasshopper! Yes a tiny stupid grasshopper !! Next a plan of destruction.

You know, this looks like a familiar pose?   Chip does seem to tuck himself into a specific little pose when he eats ~ happy..does that make sense? he brings his back feet in and settles his front paws just so wiggles his butt till everything is just right then he has this glazed look on his face. then..nom nom nomnom That's why this looks so familiar. I bet if I look back at many photos of him eating ~bingo~ they will all be similar!!

Chocolate Chip happy with a fresh Bowl of fresh Basil.!!!!Nom nom nom nom

surprise in the timothy box!!shhh

SHHHH!!!!  Don't tell I found out the surprise in the Timothy box.
Take a look here it is: Fast I have to put it back fast Before Chip sees us. It's Sooo
cute an itty bitty carrot awww ... silly Cip has not found it yet, he gets too side tracked with the sweet yummy Timothy in his tummy. Oh yeah and I keep stuffing
the box with more Timothy....heheehee he may not find it for quite a while..
OK, What do you think?  Should I leave Chip's box alone so *maybe* he can find his itty bitty carrot? or keep stuffing it with timothy and maybe move it around?
 Advice anyone??
 {{{bunny hugs}}}  

Sweet Timothy & a prize in the box?

"I have a new *toy* it's filled with one of my favorites sweet Timothy,
and if I dig around real good I will find a surprise!! Yipee"

~muffled ~ "I know it's in here some where"

"Ohhhh This is sooo yummy....Nom nom nom nom...this is just the best Timothy ever!  uh oh I forgot um why was I  uh..
oh yeah there is a surprise...."

"I will go back in and complete my mission for the surprise."

"ahhh ....this is soooo yummy, I love my Timothy  Nom Nom Nom Nom.. "
Chocolate Chip is eating his Timothy`in a small box that has a wee surprise'
I have not looked for it yet. Shoot let me go look. Ok, how adorable it is a wee wooden carrot. I will post it's photo. It said `fruit flavor' when I ordered it. haha. Too cute! 
 I have used the same place for all of my bunny supplies for 21 pleased years     
   Check them You can have a catalog sent to you free. Run by Real Vet's,They have their own Pharmacy.   I have found that their prices are always lower than all my local pet stores, walmart, target, feed store,you name-it as a pet owner, (we had 3 small dogs and 6 minature dutch bunnies now ) you prices shop. Once you find a place whose prices beat any store... When I bought Chip a corner liter box I found it at Foster&Smith $2 less,They are not just a smidge cheaper. I usually get enough to get free shipping.
Go back thru my blog and see some of his favorites treats.
Hope this helps my fellow Bunny friends.
