Ebay, how could you? Yesterday I saw a post labeled "rabbit's foot."

When I clicked on it, I saw brightly colored bunny feet key chains. The Horror!

I can't imagine why anyone would want this. I can't imagine why Ebay would allow it.

Makes a bunny wonder.

Bunny Pirate Anthem

Yo; Ho!
Yo; Ho!
A bunny’s life for me!

I hop!
I run!
I play with hay!
A bunny’s life for me!

I bite!
I thump!
I get under foot!
A bunny’s life for me!

I sleep!
I purr!
I demand head pats!
A bunny’s life for me!

Yo; Ho!
Yo; Ho!
A bunny’s life for me!

Another Picture

Something light for today. No politics. No rants. Just a happy bunny being fed a strawberry by his loving Dad.

Bunny Political Thoughts

I'm really fortunate to be a rabbit. I have these humans that took me into their family and really love me. They feed me, pet me, play with me and all they ask for in return is that I not poop on the carpet. Yes, I'm glad to be a pet bunny; it's a good life!

Poor Humans. I found out that a lot of people go to college to train themselves for good jobs so they can take care of their rabbits. They work to put food on the table. They work to pay for the homes we share. They work to provide a good life to their families.

The problem is that many go thousands of dollars in debt to pay for this education. They then work for years to pay off the loans for college. I heard that it often takes 10 years to pay back the money.

By borrowing money, they sell themselves into a sort of slavery. They are forced to get jobs right out of college to start paying back the loans. Because they feel an urgency to work to pay back the money (many loan payments begin 6 months after graduation), some have to pretty much take whatever comes along. Companies benefit because they can offer lower wages because of the urgency to begin work.

Granted, college education is wonderful and does allow for much better jobs than no college. But think how things could be different if people didn't have the financial obligation to pay back that college loan.

I think college graduates could take a little more time to truly think about what career they wanted. (After all, how many 21 year olds truly know what they want in life.) Maybe, they could work for several companies to see what they like to do. Or maybe, they could hold out for a higher paying job instead of settling for something that covers the bills and the loan payments.

I think leaving college debt free would greatly change the way college grads approach their work life. Maybe we should have some type of have higher education available at no cost. It could be trade school for some, college for others, technical school for others.

How much would society benefit by having a highly educated workforce? How much would society benefit by having most of its workers getting a good living wage and paying taxes based on that wage? I bet the increased tax income from the higher salaries, would pay for the tuition.

But what do I know? I'm a bunny. My job is to fertilize the shrubs one pooh ball at a time.

Hey, everybody! Dad thought I was acting cute on Saturday. I was tossing around some willow stems and leaves. Eating some. Anyway, Dad thought it cute and used his phone to shoot a short video. I made him post it to You Tube.

He was shocked at how bad he sounds on it. Why is it that people don't sound like they think they sound on a recording. I didn't talk, so I'm perfect on the recording.

Hope you're having a great day. I'll try to post something more intelligent in a day or two.

Craigs List

When I look at the pet ads on Craigs List, I'm struck by how many bunnies there are trying to find new homes. I feel sorry for them, but want them to go to good and loving homes.

If I may offer a little advice: when a person places an ad on a site, please don't say "free to a good home." Sometimes those free bunnies don't end up in the best hands. There are some people that eat them. Please charge something. Even $20-$30 would be enough to keep many of the carnivores away.



Hey, Everybody!

I'm Buddy Rabbit. I'm new to this blogging thing, but I'm going to give it a try.

I'm pretty well trained, poopy wise. I tend to go outdoors or back in my pen to use the restroom. Wish I could figure out that toilet thing. Since I know where to go, I get to run around the house most of the day.

I have a regular schedule. Breakfast and some early morning rubs from my humans. Then a couple of hours outside on our deck for fresh air and exercise. Dad keeps an eye on me so the hawks don't get me. They are pretty bad here, but I have lots of hiding places plus Dad's watchful eye.

Then I go inside and run around the house until night. I go to bed, back in my pen, when I get tired. It's not too bad. The pen is two "wabbitat" cages joined together. My food area has grass mats lining it and my living space has carpet. Only my poo corner is bare metal with a pan underneath. I have toys in the pen; my favorite a wooden rattle from

Well, that's enough for an introduction. I'll post more later.
