The life of a 12-year-old puppy, in love with squeakies and Ol' Roys

Meet Snot…

Posted by faiththemutt on June 24, 2010

Snot is a rabbit– In case you started getting a strange look on your face were desperately looking for the back button on your browser.  Also, here’s a picture if you don’t actually believe me:


I decided to do a little post about Snot, because he’s (or she, don’t really know) has become a permanent resident of our yard.  Much to my Dad’s dismay.  Ever since we started landscaping the yard, the bunny population around it has appeared to get bigger.  With rabbits, it’s hard to tell, so you know, might just be we’re more aware of them.  We’ve lovingly named the Pansies we planted out front, “Pringles” because once the rabbits start eating them, they just won’t stop.

This little guy, has made himself comfortable and just about everyday we find him laying somewhere in the yard.  He’s gotten so comfortable living around us that he will even just flatten out in the grass all lazily and chew on the blades he can reach.  It’s ridiculous.  He doesn’t really have any distinctive features, but we always know it’s him, thanks to his mannerisms and the fact we can get pretty close to him before he runs:

I didn't know we were doing photos!!

Dad has tried scaring Snot off several times, but it doesn’t appear to have worked.  Obviously.  I personally don’t think he’s destroyed any of the flowers, but Dad has a vendetta against the little guy (still not working) and that’s how the bunny received the name Snot.

Who-- Me?!

Overall, he seems like a happy rabbit, content and all.  So I thought I’d share, because he’s the one pet I haven’t had to stoop to begging for and I don’t have to clean out his habitat.  Or buy him toys.   Plus he’s cute, so, you know… That helps.

Since I have a little free time before I go to work tomorrow, I’m hoping to do a little photoshoot with my fuzzy friends.  It’ll be nice out, so Baxter and Watson can go back outside.  After I was rudely awoken by thunder and lightening and pouring rain I realized it was raining into their hutch, so like a good mommy, I ran out into the rain (got soaked) and saved them from drowning (got more soaked).  Watson practically leaped into my arms (Did I mention he’s sort of talking to me again?!) and was like “GOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGO!” When he realized I was there and Baxter was like “Eh, I suppose I could stay in my box if it’s too much trouble for you”.  Neither was pleased they got a little wet (hello, I was SOAKED!) but were happy to get the rest of their fruit treats when I got them inside.  They’re going to get so fat.  It got so muggy today I thought I would let them stay cool inside but tomorrow should be in the low 80’s, so I think they can go back out and enjoy the day.  I’m hoping to get pictures of Buddha, since all I have are cellphone pics:

She’s cute either way, but I’d rather get some good photos of her like I have of everyone else in this house.  We’ll see.  I’m going to be doing a post about her being a TV junkie, so look out.  It’ll be awesome!

Until then!
