WELCOME LITTLE FURIES RESCUE! 

The description of Tippy makes me laugh, because my Bailey does that too.  She's got a spine issue, so sometimes when I am trying to give her a treat, she stands on her hind legs and if I move to far over past her nose when I'm bending down to give it to her, she'll fall backward.  

How long have you been fostering?

hi guys, Im new to this site.

I recently bought my beautiful bunny, who i called Elwood as im quite a big fan of Joaquim Phoenix and i love the film Buffalo Soldiers. His characters name in it is Ray Elwood, so when choosing a name, me and my boyfriend went through our dvd collection and came up with it.
as it happens he has turned out to be quite a cheeky but charming bunny, so his name fits quite well.

Noble had his name when I adopted him. He is the Noblest of men, so I kept his name. It fits my 5 year old bun well.

hi y'all
i'm newly registered and in the running for the bunny goodies...woohoo!
i'm very active in bunny rescue and when i started a few years ago i told myself that i would not adopt any bunz cuz it would cut down on the time & energy i would have to devote to volunteering.
well, that of course was a silly stupid thing to think!
i have had the pleasure of naming a bunch of foster bunz, it's always a fun thing to do.
my own gang came to me as fosters w/names that i didn't like so i changed them. aubrie was found by another volunteer on a sidewalk, she was only a baby 2 months old. wombat was a "box bunny," the runt in a cardboard box of bunz that was dumped on a shelter doorstep. he had lots of bites and thru-and-thru wounds. i had to flush them several times/day, give antibiotics, syringe feed etc. he also was around 2 months old. by the time i nursed him back to health he had fallen in love w/aubrie (both were fosters at the time) and i had fallen in love w/them, so...
wombat got his name cuz it's unusual (i like different names but they must be pronounceable!) and wombats are fabulous critters that live in australia and which i think are awfully terrific!
my nykko was born on my couch and i didn't name him for the longest time as i already had aubrie & wombat and i was determined not to fall in love w/him (gosh, how silly stupid can one person get...??!!!) anyhoo, when he was a bit older i got a foster baby who was also only a few weeks old, so i put them together so they could keep each other company. ha ha, you guessed it, i still got 'em! nykko originally had another name but in march he got really sick and almost died, had to have his tail amputated etc etc. so i gave him the name nykko which derives from the goddess nike which means "triumphant, victorious"; i wanted him to have those qualities. and he's doing great now! the little girl who has kept him company all his life had a name that i actually gave her but ended up not liking, so she now is yazmin. i like to give my girls really elegant pretty names and the boys can have whatever suits them.
well, i've got salads to make & hand out and 6 kits (baby bunz) to handfeed i'm outta here. blessings, joy & binkies to all! 8-)

WELCOME qzobevmama!   I haven't reposted this month's drawing yet, but it is the same as last month as so you are absolutely included in the drawing  (as it will include all post in the month of September) GOOD LUCK!!

We are lucky to have you here!  I too volunteer at a rabbit rescue, and I realized I'm not cut out to Foster.  My first foster became my adopted bunny Jack.   And I realized I fall in love too fast.  So I keep my volunteer work AT the shelter.  

What touching endearing stories. You are wonderful to be able to do what you do!  I bet your a rabbit expert now and you have  a lot to offer here.   So again, welcome!!

My bunny Cuddles got her name the first night I got her, she was still a little baby, and I was considering the name Sophie but through the evening she let me hold her and wanted to cuddle with me all evening, so I decided the name Cuddles was more fitting. She still loves to be carried around the house with me on my chest.

Annabelle Lee came named from the shelter - named after one of the volunteer's first pet and favorite poem.

I'm not too enamored of it - the poem is sad and she's not a very "girly" bun - and she doesn't respond to it so I'm thinking of changing it. Right now I call her "Bunny-girl" or "Cow-bunny".

WELCOME CUDDLES! 

Oh, how sweet.  Every once in a while, at the rabbit shelter I volunteer for, we get a cuddly bun.   Most of the time rabbits are not fond of being held, and so, of course, we respect that, (unless we have to clip nails etc)  but we can't help but just swoon when we get a bunny in that actually loves to be snuggled in our arms.  Such joy!

Ooooh - PEPPER.  That's PERFECT!

Annabelle Lee is a lovely name, but it is rather too girly for my little bundle of bunnitude.  plus I think the poem is kind of depressing.

I hope binky-bunny's other Pepper's mommy doesn't mind, but I really like that name for my black and white sassy bun.

Sophie: I have no idea how I named her that. It was my favorite "baby" name and a single 26 year old woman, my mother inevitably started hinting about being a grandmother. So I named the bunny Sophie Grace. She's my mom and dad's grandbunny.

Awww.   Cute story!    You're still young enough not to have to worry about it.  Plenty of time!

I know what you mean!  Our bunnies are our "kids" right now.  We're not opposed to having brand new human beings in our life, we're just not ready, (may never be) for that huge responsibility,so for now, I'm sticking to big eared, four legged, puffy tailed creatures.

Hello, I'm new here but I already love your site. We have 2 buns, a wild "brush rabbit" and an English Spot.
Our first one is the wild cottontail, she was rescued off the street with a crushed leg when she was only about 3 weeks old. I named her Hazel after the character in the book "Watership Down"  because I always loved that book and the name Hazel, and she is a little Cottontail too. so her name is Hazel Cottontail .
Our second bun was rescued from a shelter where she was slated to be put down. My husband just couldn't let that happen, so we took her home with us. She is really my daughter's bun now, those 2 bonded and little White Chocolate is a real "mommy's bunny" now.
She got her name at the adoption event where we got her. That day the HRS also had a pet psychic visiting, a woman who can talk to animals. So we asked her to ask Hazel what she thought the new one's name should be. Well, since Hazel didn't really want a companion, the names she came up with were not suitable at all (Traitor, Intruder... no, definately not). So we explaned to her why we needed to bring the new bun home, and she finally agreed to name her "White Chocolate" (Yes, my husband sneeks her a little piece ones in a while even though I keep telling him she really shouldn't have it!). It does fit her, since she's mainly white, with black and brown (also called "Chocolat" colored) spots so we kept that name . She was originally called Truffles, so now we have White Chocolate Truffles, or Chocolate for short. Or, when she's been biting me again, it's "White Chocolate Trouble" .

My baby lionhead's name is Felony...I'm a first year law student, so I thought it was fitting. Although I usually end up calling him spoiled rotten because that is exactly what he is!!

When Lori brought our guy home from the Kill Shelter we wanted him to have a name that would reflect his personallity as well as pay homage to our interests. Because I am a huge fan of Reggae Dancehall, specifically Sound Clash, I wanted to name him Killamanjaro (Jaro for short). Killamanjaro Sound is the number one killing sound in Jamaica and we wanted our guy to be the number one. But Jaro never really stuck or fit and we started calling him The Bunny Killa, after one of the biggest DJ's in the business Bounty Killa. That didn't fit either because he is hardly a killer. So while watching a baseball game on TV one day there was a situation that called for a bunt and he perked up everytime the announcer said "bunt". The Bunt is now a vital part of our family much like the bunt is a vital part of baseball. Sometimes we still call him The Bunty Killa....
