We are so excited to celebrate our 1 year bunniversary with all of our wonderful followers and awesome tumblr. community, as well as with the whole internet world! We want to show our love and appreciation by doing a giveaway with 3 winners chosen randomly. And the BEST PART about this giveaway? We will donate up to $100 USD to House Rabbit Society if this post reaches 1000 notes!
We know many people who want to help and support wonderful causes, like raising awareness for breast cancer, ALS disease, or saving the Earth’s natural resources! Everyone has a cause that they stand behind and is close to their heart, but not everyone has extra money to give. We understand that, which is why we will be donating in the name of the 1st place winner of our Bunniversary Giveaway! If anyone wants to donate to HRS, you can do so here. Is there something better to donate other than money? Yes, your time! We encourage you to volunteer at ANY local animal shelter/rescue, not just rabbit specific. You can make an impact just by giving up a couple hours a week/month to spend time with homeless pets.
Other ways you can help support great causes is to use the power of your words and voice! People often underestimate the power of your voice, just by sharing information on the internet and in your daily life, you can make a difference! Plant a seed, and watch it grow =)
Bunniversary Giveaway Prizes:
1st place winner will receive a T-shirt of their choice from Cottontail Studios. They are a wonderful organization that donates 50% of their profits towards many rabbit shelters/rescues in the U.S. That means by buying one of their awesome shirts, we will be supporting rabbit rescues everywhere! A donation will also be made in the winner’s name to our local HRS Chapter that we support heavily because of Emilee.
3rd place winner will receive a postcard of the happy bunny couple, Nugget & Emilee.

Sorry if this has already been asked, but how do dogs tend to do with buns (supervised, of course!)?
Thank you for asking that question Trenchgun! It is really important for people to know, when considering a pet rabbit, if their current pets would get along with it. Or vice versa. From my experience, it all comes down to personality. I think a rabbit of any breed could get along with any pet if they have a friendly, social, open-minded personality. The same goes for dogs, but be careful with some dog breeds that have hunting instincts like Terriers… they might not understand that a house rabbit is a pet and see it as prey. I’m NOT saying it’s impossible for hunting dog breeds and house rabbits to be friends, but just be careful when introducing them. Of course, this goes for all breeds of dogs/cats/rabbits/other animals.
When introducing a dog and a rabbit for the first time, I suggest picking a neutral zone because rabbits are territorial by nature so they might get upset if you bring any animal into their home. Emilee gets extremely upset when we have dog visitors come over as she thumps and runs for her life even though she is separated in a different room from the dog. She was really aggressive and mad when Rolly the Cavachon stayed with us for a week. She even ninja kicked him in the face one night, but he was a sweet, loving dog and never showed any aggression towards her or Nugget. Emilee did calm down over time but they never became friends or anything. I kept a gate up so Rolly could watch my rabbits, but not have physical contact with them.
Neutral territory would be the safest place for them to meet and I recommend holding the dog down and keeping them calm so they don’t get overly excited causing them to chase the bunny. That’s the last thing you want because the rabbit will run for its life thinking the dog wants to eat them. Let the bunny explore and give them some time to warm up to the dog. You don’t want to rush them, let them decide and when they are ready (or brave enough), they’ll hop over to you and the dog and possibly make a new friend! Monitor both parties and you decide if things are going well or not. If it looks like either pet is scared, too excited, or stressed about the whole situation, stop the introductions immediately and try again another time. If it goes well and the rabbit is really interested in the dog, slowly let the dog go and see what happens. The very first time Nugget met Rolly the Cavachon, it took 2 days for them to become best buds. I kept a strong hold on Rolly until I felt comfortable knowing Nugget was calm and interested in hanging out. They would lay together, groom each other, and followed each other around. I truly believe any two species can form a special bond as long as both animals have friendly personalities and like each other.
I hope that answers your question! Feel free to message us if you have more questions regarding house rabbits.
The Buns sends many flops and binkies your way!!

Sending binkies and flops your way <3
Mom’s making a presentation tomorrow to inspire others to stop supporting pet stores and adopt from a local shelter/rescue instead. I told her to use my story to prove that pet stores aren’t knowledgable about their animals, neglect to educate new owners on the species that they want, sell pet supplies that should not be used (ex: small cages, filler food), encourage puppy mills/breeders to produce more baby pets with horrible living conditions, and in turn result in more pets showing up at rescues/shelters.
Chillin’ like a villain.
Did you know rabbits often sleep with eyes wide open? Signs of a sleeping rabbit include bodies twitching and noses stop wiggling.
Of course there are those days where I’m so exhausted from doing absolutely nothing that I can’t even keep my eyes open!
