Furry Butts Fursday... on Saturday!

When Hans of the honorable house of Furrybutts left this world and the blogosphere to cross the bridge, all of a sudden and so shockingly for all of us, but mostly for her bunny parents, there has been a subdued mood in every bunny home. We've all been thinking of Hans and remembering his vocality (he was a talkative bun who liked to speak out when he felt like it) and his determination not to contaminate his lean body with junk food or any odd green vegetable, but it wasn't quite enough, as he had such a huge personality, although he was a small bun. We've been thinking of a good post to commemorate his life, but only when Diana of the House of Spots contacted us bunny friends with the Furry Butts Fursday plan we knew we had hit gold.

So, here it is, especially for Hans de Furrybutts and for Buttons, Yohji but mostly for his grieving pal Bailey, S and Mr S, our belated "furry butts on a Saturday morning"....


Sir Harvey of Glasgow's furrybutt, sticking out of a timothy hay hessian bag


Shedding furrybutt owned by Bobo, who lived in Germany near the Audi factory


BillieBun's furrybutt was a legendary one...


they say the white tail is now a beacon of light in the evening at the Bridge


Nik's furry butt in motion


Hugo's furry butt in stretched position....


...and relaxing...


Miss Eve's and Hugo's butts in a tunnel...


...and in parallel relaxation!

And finally...

Neville's furry butt descending...


...resting...


...and showing off!


Binky free, little Hans, and do say hello from us to Sir Harvey, BillieBun, Nik and Hugo - we miss you all but one day we'll meet again... x x x

Thanks for sharing tails of past and present. I had heard tell, in quiet bunny moments around the hay pile, of the legendary BillieBun Butt beacon at the Bridge and now I know it is true.

Furry butt descending a staircase...

sounds like a work of art! and you reminded me I forgot my good ol' bilbo with her butt sticking out of a bag of hay!

Nice tribute :-) I had the same thoughts of Hans being one with a big personality in a little package!

It's nice to know there's a friendly light at the bridge. Such a lovely, thoughtful post. Hans must surely be binkying.

It's nice to see pics of all the bunnies you've crossed paths with, albeit mostly from the posterior view :) BillieBun's beacon of a tail ought to have led Hans to him, Sir Harvey, Nik & Hugo by now.. have fun together, boys!

Hey thanks for your comment! The brown lop was Bilbo, who turned out to be a girl but I still kept the name! She was my first "blogging" bunny, before Archi Ann. Not my first bun, just the one that got me blogging. She was trouble (as I have learned Holland Lops can be) in that she was a mischief maker all the time and despised me so I ended up giving her to a friend that she liked much more!

That's a lot of bunny bottoms!

Darling rabbits! I'm sending in a video my 7 year old made about rabbit care. It's not perfect and has a few errors in it, but is cute for bunny lovers. The rabbit in it, Savannah, was found in our yard. She was sick when we got her and unfortunately died of intestinal stasis. We loved her so much we realized we needed a bunny and got Simon, a lionhead, who we adore. We've spent a fortune on a play yard, 2 cages, toys, etc. and we are having a ball. House bunnies are wonderful!
