Christmas 2012

This Christmas was the BEST ONE EVER!!!!!!!

Not only did me and daddy get to spend it with grandma and grandpa and the other relatives, we also got to spend it with my COUSIN!!!! I haven't seen him since he was really little, so yesterday was AWESOME!!! He's seven years old now, and loves us bunnies, but has great respect for us as well. First question he asked daddy when we got in the door was how I was doing, he was really worried about me. That made me and daddy very happy.

On the way to grandma's house
Well, on to my favorite part, the presents. Daddy got me a new chew toy, he says that I need to chew it more to keep my teeth good. I also got a brand new sweater, it looks like my other camo one, but is brand new.
My new ball, and my new sweater.
This happened tonight, it couldn't have happened yesterday for Christmas.

Daddy tried taking the same picture, but with a flash, this is the result.
Tomorrow me and daddy are going to go shopping, hopefully with a stop at Petsmart so I can spend some of my Christmas money.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee Santa came

Wooooohoooooooo!!!!!! Looky Santa came last night, and look what he left for us.
Daddy says that Santa heard about my teeth problems, and he talked to the Easter Bunny. This is what EB suggested "lots of hay", well, this isn't exactly what me and EB were referring to, but what does Santa know about bunnies.
I also got my Petsmart gift card yesterday, daddy told me that I can get toys, but I also have to get clothes too.
Me with my card, there's even a bunny on it.

My card in it's envelope
In about an hour me and daddy are leaving for grandma's house, and daddy says that when he talked to grandma last night, she said there was a present for me under their tree. Not only am I excited about that, me and daddy are going on the big train to get to grandma's, one of my favorite ways to travel.

We'll be posting pictures later from grandma's house, we have a new device that allows us to go on to the internet from anywhere. Which will allow us to give better updates when something like my vet appointment happens, because up until Saturday we only had daddy's cell phone to go on the net with. I'll explain more later, I want to go have a nap right now, and give myself a little bit of a bath before we go to grandma's.

A fictional letter to Santa

This is a letter I made up from a bunny to Santa explaining what happened so he can stay on the nice list.

Dear Santa
The following are things that were NOT my fault.

-Tipping over the Christmas Tree. I was chasing the cat playing tag with the cat, but he cheated by climbing up the tree, so I tipped the tree over to chase him some more 'tag' him it.

-Chewing the power cord on the inflatable Santa Claus; I thought that it was a giant attacking my human, so in a bold move to save him, I chewed the power cord.

-Peeing on your cookies; I heard my young human say that those cookies must taste like the litter in my potty box.

-Chewing holes in the bottom of all the stockings; I kept hearing the oldest humans saying that the stockings weren't holey to keep with Christmas traditions.

-Chewing open the Christmas presents; I can't read, and I can't shake the presents so I wanted to see which ones were mine.

-Marinating the turkey in my pee; I heard my human dad comment that the baking pan looked like my litter box, and the stuffing as looking like the litter..... Well, I really needed to go, and was to far from my potty box.

Almost done with the meds

I'm only on one medication right now, and this Monday night I'll be all done.
Daddy isn't giving me any more oats, it was starting to cause more problems then it was solving. And I am eating my pellets, hay and greens without much problem now. We haven't gotten a weight on me yet, but maybe later on Sunday daddy can catch me and put me on the scale.

There has been another change of plans for Christmas, me and daddy aren't going to grandma's house on Christmas Eve after all. It's even better, we're going Christmas day!!!!! Which means I get to see my great grandma, great grandaunt, and great uncle, and grandma and grandpa too. Only two more days till that happens, it's going to be great.

Oh, and we got to see Ice Age, Continental drift (that's the 4th and most recent movie). And you know what, there's a rabbit in it. He's one of the pirates (bad guys), but still he is a bunny and a pirate so I like him. That's two movies I've seen where there is a bunny that fights with a weapon, Easter Bunny in Rise of the Guardians was the other one.

I am back

I have been pooping like crazy, daddy had to clean out my litter box today cause I filled it up.
I also got into a little bit of trouble Wednesday, but it was daddy's fault.
Here's what happened, daddy had started to give us food (pellets and some oats for me), well he caught me when I tried to sneak past him, so he wouldn't give me my medication, he did anyway *thump*. But I got a bit of payback, daddy had left the container of oats on the floor, and open. Well, I helped myself to some oats, he was going to give me some anyway.
I don't have to go back to the vet until the new year, I was kinda hoping that it would be sooner, so the vet would say I don't need anymore meds.

The baby sisters are 2

Annabelle and Candi turned 2 years old on Sunday, which means we'll have been living in this building for 2 years tomorrow (Tuesday Dec, 18th). Daddy knows this because we adopted those two just after we moved in here, and they were posted on a Yahoo group called Freecycle.

Now, for an update on my health, I am eating my pellets mixed with rolled oats (nommy), I finished off a whole bowl full, and a pile of cilantro and parsley. So my teeth are back in chewing mode.
I'm now only on one medication, the antibiotic, and will be for awhile yet. But at least it tastes better then the Critical Care, yuck.
I'm not sure, but I think daddy has been talking with Santa, he's been using his cell phone with headphones, and talking to someone about Christmas, and giving updates on how my recovery is progressing. It could only mean he's talking to Santa, right? I've tried to see who he's called, but he deletes the call log.
Speaking of Christmas, me and daddy are going to grandma's house on Christmas eve, that is going to be fun. We get to ride the choo-choo train there, and ride in grandma's car home. Daddy has told me that I'll have a present to open there, and that Santa may deliver our presents there instead.

Sunki is home!!!!

A little groggy, but that is whats to be expected when he was put under, and have doctors poking around in ones mouth.
He is on three meds (metacam, sulfa/trim, and cisapride, all banana flavor) also Critical Care.
We have to call back in the next couple of days to see if a follow up is needed.

There was more then just the trouble with his front teeth, his molars needed to be ground down, and one back tooth had to be extracted completely because it was growing toward the front of his mouth. His jaws are not lined up properly, so it appears this will be an ongoing yearly thing.

Sunki staying at vet

Sunki is staying at the vet for the day, they need to do surgery to trim his teeth.
We will post more when we get info.

On the way to the vets

We've managed $300 approx, it should be enough to cover things.
Daddy weighed me last night, and I am down to 1.1 kg (2lb), I should be up between 3 and 4kg.

Just saw Rise of the Guardians

One comment to describe how cool this movie is, the Easter Bunny fights, and uses boomarangs as his weapons. Oh, and Santa, the toothfairy, sandman and Jack Frost are in it too.
Still not as cool as Hop, but then EB never beat anyone up in that movie.

I also got me another stuffie, this one I used my Christmas money, and bought an Oswald the Lucky Rabbit from the Disney Store, I suppose I could have gotten one of the triplets from Brave when they were bear cubs, but Oswald is by far my favourite.

Vet appointment changed

Daddy has moved the appointment up to this Monday at 0900 (yuck), it means we have to be up really early to make it on time.

We should have enough to cover the costs, daddy says that people have donated from as far away as Switzerland and the United Kingdom. With all the donations, the total is around $240. Daddy says this should be just enough to get me fixed up, and he won't be paying more then that, he knows what is needed, and what that involves. So any extra tests aren't necessary, except maybe an eye test for the vet, because if he can't see my front teeth are crooked he's blind.

We'll see what happens on Monday morning, sadly we won't be seeing Dr Munn, but the vet we are seeing is just as experienced. If your keeping score, this will be the third vet I will see in my life, and crossing ears, toes, paws etc, the last vet I will need to see.

I have a vet appointment

On December 17th at 1030 to see Dr Munn, who is the best bunny vet ever. If Rabbit Rescue trusts him, then he should be good.

Insert surprised bunny look here

WOWEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As you can tell I am truly in wonder over this latest development.
A very generous donor is sending us a donation of 100.00 Swiss Francs, which is $107.00 CDN! So I would like to take a moment and say a special thanks to Susanne Trier, both daddy and I are very happy now, we can now likely do everything in one appointment.

But, daddy also reminds me that I shouldn't forget the other people who sent money to help me, so I'd like to thank everyone for their generous donations, and there are to many to list here. So I'll just say one big Thankyou to everyone, and to watch this blog and my Facebook page for a very special post tomorrow.

Our first over seas donation

A very nice bunny named Banacek from the UK sent us £10 which works out to be $15.00 Canadian. So far we have $30.00 toward my vet bill, we're just $40.00 away from being able to have the vet look at me.
I told daddy sending my picture to Daily Bunny, with a request for help, would help kick start the donations, even grandma was doubtful it would help, well I proved that I'm a smart bunny.
