And we're back!

It has been another long break from bloglife, but hopefully with holidays at the doorstep I will be able to catch up with all the blogs and bunny lives, keeping fingers firmly crossed that all and everybun is well and thriving.

Firstly, a big thank you to all of you who posted and sent healing vibes to Hugo...my white furry man had me quite worried just until the day before yesterday, but he is such a "Stehaufmännchen" as the Germans would put it, no matter what the "ordeal" is he must go through, he will recover and be back the usual spoiled bunny in search of a stroking hand or a grooming session from Miss Eve :)

Unfortunately, he has shown to Mr. D who the boss is and refused to take his baytril while I was away. He is quite a challenge really, hates being picked up and we manage to medicate him only when we work in a team...he will grab him and hold him close on his chest, and I will sneak the nasty baytril with the siringe in his mouth. Poor Hugo! So, he went for the last two days without antibiotic, but Mr. D assured me that he was eating and pushing Miss Eve out of the bowl for pellets. He only noticed a drop in appetite in both due to the heath wave that England was experiencing while I was up in Scotland, balmy +20°C and sea breeze and all.
When I returned last Saturday he was fine, but on Sunday he did not seem particularly interested in food, so I gave him some metacam and brought him to see Dani on Monday as soon as she was out of the operating theatre. She checked him over, looked at the space where the molar was, and said that all was fine. No infection to be seen, all looked nice and healing, and gut sounds were fine too, which was very good news to me! Now he is dozing off in his cage with Miss Eve, certainly waiting for 6pm when it is time for pellets.
I will take a few more pictures, hopefully in the garden, in the next days...being off work will surely help!
And now, something Scottish for you all :)

And... a Dundee bunny just outside the lecture hall near Bonar Hall! They were everywhere...the hill just outside the hotel was full of them at dusk and early morning!

I've never heard of a Dundee bunny. I'd love to see more of them.

Glad the Hugo is feeling fine, white, furry man that he is.Thanks for the special pics, got a giggle out of Boyfriend. Of course I realize now that Nottingham isn't Scotland and my sense of geograhy and or reading skills ought to be brought into question. The penquins are great and that Dundee bunny is, you know, cute as a bunny.

Yyay Hugo is getting better!
Are the Dundee bunnies native to Dundee?

We're glad that Hugo is doing so well (even though he seems to be a bit stubborn with the medicine!)

Those penguins are such cute statues -- almost seem real! And the Dundee bunny looked rather healthy!

Great vacation!

Keep getting better Hugo!

I've been trying to give the dogs cough meds per the vet and boy that's a challenge! I've pretty much given up with O'Reilly but Lakota puts up with it. It's hard not having another person to hold the animal :-)
