Today is the day we celebrate the patron saint of Scotland, St Andrew.
I'm on daily bunny today, they have posted links to my Facebook page and this blog. We hope that it will bring in more donations.
Daddy did a more accurate weight on me, I'm down to 1.5kg. Daddy got me some oats, which is what the vet recommended last year when I needed to regain the weight I lost. So that, plus the pellets, plus critical care should keep my weight stable, or hoping, increase, until we can get into see the vet.
Also we saw yucky white stuff falling from the sky on the way home tonight, but it isn't going to be sticking around, the temperature is going up into the low double digits next week.

We have found a couple of new ways to donate to Sunki's vet care, plus some further information for one of the methods.
Interac Email Transfer (also called a Email Debit Transfer)
1: go to your banks website, choose email money transfer.
2: send the money to the following address firstname.lastname@example.org
3: you need to choose a security question and answer, to make this easy use the following "who needs this money for vet care?" and the answer "Sunki".
You can do the same email money transfer as above from Paypal, just follow the instructions.
There are many methods to send money, what you need is the receiver's name and address, send an email to email@example.com and we'll give you the information for that.
So far Sunki seems to be holding his own, he is eating pellets and getting 15cc of critical care twice a day. When I weighed him last week he was 2kg when I weighed him just now he was down to 1.5kg, for Sunki's breed (mini-rex) he should be between 3 and 4kg.
I am going to try something I did last year when Sunki needed to gain back the weight he lost, I'm going to give him rolled oats with his pellets.

We likely won't be seeing the show again, so daddy wasn't able to get me a stuffie from the show like last year. But daddy talked to grandma, and if she remembers to, she'll pick up one for me the next time she's at the theatre. I'm crossing my paws and rubbing my left hind foot for luck that she does remember, then my new stuffie can join Kiwi that I got from last years show.
|Kiwi when I first got him.|
|Me and Kiwi.|
Speaking of which, I am eating my pellets again, but I'm still getting Critical Care twice a day so I don't go into stasis.

There is an annual tradition in the theatre community of our city, it is the annual Ross Petty Pantomime held at the Elgin Theatre. This year is Snow White the Deliciously Dopey Family Musical, tomorrow is the dress rehearsal and we get to see it for free, and we get a dinner too, well the humans do, but daddy is bringing my favorite greens for me to eat.
It's going to be so fun, grandma and grandpa, my great grand aunt, and my uncle Matthew will all be there, they all volunteer at the theatre too.
Go to your banks online website, there should be a way to send an Interac e-mail money transfer. Go to that link, you may have to add a payee email to that in order for it to work.
Send the transfer to [ firstname.lastname@example.org ] and follow the instructions on your banks site to complete the process.

We do finally have an estimate on how much the vet is going to be, just to be seen by the vet is going to be $70.00, all the other procedures they won't even tell us what those amounts are until they see me. Grandma and daddy are working on setting up a way to do an email money transfer so that people can donate to help with my vet care.
Keep an eye on this blog in the coming days, I will let you know the wheres and hows to donate money to us.
Daddy is also working on putting his trading cards up on a site called Etsy so that people can buy them online, and the money raised will go to my vet care too.

|I also got a new pin to commemorate this momentous occasion|

|This movie has our favorite band on the soundtrack the Red Hot Chilli Pipers.|
Daddy also got a new gadget for himself that attaches to the stroller, it holds his cell phone and makes it so he can see it when we're out walking.
|Daddy's cell phone in the holder|
|The cell phone holder from the side.|
|My stroller is even brighter now.|
|See the bag beside my stroller, that's for my greens, we got it from Bunfest a few years ago.|
At the moment I'm doing okay, I am eating my greens and drinking water, but I can't eat my pellets or hay. Daddy has started me on Critical Care so I don't go into stasis, and hopefully BIN will approve us going to see a vet before it runs out.

So we were out at Petsmart yesterday doing some price checking on a new food bin to put our hay in, we looked at the doggie clothing and found this sweater.
|It's camouflage, but it has skulls in the design|
|It needed a bit of alteration to make it fit me right|
|As you can see daddy is quite good at altering clothes to fit me|
|It even has a hood to keep my ears warm|
|Not liking the hood much though|
It's on at the Elgin/Winter Garden Theatre in Toronto, and goes from November 23rd 2012 to January 5th 2013 so if you're in Toronto between those dates you should really come and watch, you'll be rolling in the aisles laughing.
|This was taken back in 2009, I'm practicing super spy here, I'm in the basket under the stroller.|

On Saturday we went to the Royal Winter Fair, which is celebrating 90 years this year. The last time daddy went to it was when he was in public school, so decades ago. Both of us really wanted to go after daddy found out there were going to be bunnies there, one was a show (if daddy could have been up at 5:00am for 7 days straight, and had enough money he would have entered me into that), the other was bunny hopping (where the bunnies go through a course hopping over jumps ect). I'm far to independent minded to stick to a silly course, and would wonder around jumping over the jumps at random.
I have also realized that I wouldn't be any good at sheep herding, those things are a lot bigger then I thought they were, and my herding method (humping) just wouldn't work with sheep. I also learned that cows are disgusting smelly creatures, I can't believe that daddy likes to drink their milk and eat the meat that comes from them.
We did get me some things from the fair, a new button to show I was actually there, a mini bagpipe (even smaller then the other one I've got). AND after a two year long search we found NESSIE!!!!!!!!!! It wasn't at a Scottish festival either, it was at an agricultural fair, mind you it isn't a stuffed one, it's more of a fridge magnet, but still it's a NESSIE!!!!!!!!!!
Daddy got some stuff for him as well, a wooden walking stick, and two packages of exotic meat pepperettes. One is Camel, and the other package is Kangaroo.
On Sunday we went to an early Remembrance Day ceremony, which remembers the fallen soldiers that gave their lives so that we can live free. Daddy and I would like to pause right now and post two poems that are very near and dear to our hearts.
To dance with the clouds which follow a storm;
To roll and glide, to wheel and spin,
To feel the joy that swells within;
Should my end come while I am in flight,
Whether brightest day or darkest night;
Spare me your pity and shrug off the pain,
Secure in the knowledge that I'd do it again;
For each of us is created to die,
But within me I know,
I was born to fly.
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew —
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
|Sheep are a lot bigger then I thought|
|Even the babies are bigger|
|The bunny jumping|
|My new pin|
|My two bagpipers|
|And finally Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, notice a resemblance to a certain rodent?|
