I write stuff. Sometimes. Not very often. Also: knitting and bunnies and books. Random tangents are likely.

Monday Bunday - Motivation Fail

There's been some talk in my circle of friends lately about bunny obstacle courses. I've seen videos of these feats of legendary lagomorph prowess over my years as a bunny slave, most from areas outside the US. More recently, some fluffy obstacle course masters were featured on the Amazing Race, which I don't usually watch but had to tune in just to see the bunnies.

Here is my lame attempt at getting Goose to jump over something, which happens to be a knitting needle because those are the types of sticks I have. Clearly I need to brush up on my powers of persuasion.

(And, yes, I do have a 4x4 foot playpen in the middle of my living room because that is where Goose likes for it to be, and he throws a fit if I move it. Though he has free range of the apartment when I'm home, it's "his room" and sometimes he just likes to hang out in there.)

(And... When I told Goose he was a very smart bun, I may have been fudging the truth a bit. He's not the sharpest carrot in the garden, but he's super cute at being dumb.)

  1. i love this on like a zillion different levels.
    1 - Goose is cuter than anything ever.
    2 - My dogs give me that blank look when I'm asking them to do something, even when I know they know what I'm saying.
    3 - I love that you said he's not the sharpest carrot :)
    4 - I love the exasperated "ah, bunnies" at the end.

    How on earth do these rabbits become super-athletes and how can we train the bun-bun??
