Hello Humans of the internet! I hope you aren’t tired of me since I’ve been posting for three days straight. I’ve just been incredibly bored and seeing as we still have power and an internet connection, why not blog?
Even though Irma is still really far away (all the way on the tip of Florida) we are already feeling its affects here. It’s not bad, just cold and a little windy. According to the map on the National Hurricane Center’s website the very tip of Irma is over us right now. It’s kind of a mindbogglingly huge storm though. Weather update over moving on to what I really want to talk about today: Rabbit Jumping.
This is a sport that originated in Sweden and is something like a dog agility coarse, but for bunnies. I discovered this as I fell down one of those YouTube rabbit holes (pun intended). It began with a video about making toys for rabbits and just went from there. (I wish that I could remember the names of the videos because I found some really good ones and I’d love to tell you about them, but I was watching videos at about 3 a.m. and I can’t seem to find them again.) Anyway I eventually landed on a video about rabbit jumping. And seriously, you should go look that up right now. Don’t even bother finishing this, I’m just going to talk about my rabbit, Doctor. Honestly, rabbit jumping videos are much more important. Go up to your search bar right now and type in rabbit jumping contest. It’s worth it.
Oh hey, I see you’re still here or you have come back after watching bunny videos, either way, hello again. As you may or may not have noticed, I love rabbits. I live with my parents on their small farm and raise bunnies. (technically I only have one bunny right now but I’m working on building a herd and breeding them). So anyway, my bunny, Doctor is four months old now and very cuddly. Doctor thrives on attention and loves being held (he is the only rabbit that I’ve ever met that feels like that. Most of them like being petted but never held). I’m thinking that his need for attention will make him a really good candidate for being trained. He already follows me when he’s out of his cage and goes back in when told.
If you are interested in hearing more about Doctor and his training, maybe a rabbit hutch post because it has a fancy solar powered fan let me know in the comments below and I will definitely makes those posts. Personally, I could talk about rabbits forever. But, maybe you don’t want to hear about rabbits forever.
I promise to go back to my regular blogging schedule (unless you want posts everyday, then I might consider doing that. It’s been kind of fun writing one everyday this weekend. Again, let me know down below in the comments section.)
much love, AK
