Cinematic Saturday

Rabbits are like snowflakes.  No two are alike.

While it's true that Miss Zoe and Miss Blueberry have adjusted to each other to the point of doing many of the same things at the same time, there are still a few things they do differently.

It's funny to watch their little Rabbit Routines adjust to one another.  In the mornings, for instance, I feed both Girls their breakfast.  They both eat for the same amount of time.  Then they each rest for a few minutes, Zoe in Her Hay Box, Blueberry on Her Slate Tile area.  This is followed by Them both getting up and drinking from their water bottles at the same time (which is pretty loud in the quiet stillness of the early morning), which is followed by Each of Them going back to the Crunchy Dish for a bit more breakfast.

After this, of course, They both ROLL!  And that is the Cutest Thing Ever.

Miss Zoe, Mid-Roll.  Cutest Thing Ever.

You may or may not know that Rabbits are Animals Who Like To Dig.

The way Zoe and Blueberry dig is a Big Difference between them.  Zoe does more of a smooooooothing action.  Her "dig" is more of a dainty pushing away action with a little half-hearted digging.  I suppose She figures if it came down to it, and She needed a hole for something (God forbid!) that someone else, namely me, I suppose, would dig a hole for Her.

And, we all know that is true.

But Blueberry is a Digger Of Extraordinary Power.  And that is what today's video will demonstrate.

If you can see through the Blur of Her Very Fast Arms, you will be able to see that in about 5 seconds flat, this Rabbit could be in China.  If She wanted to be.

I think She is happy here, though.

Observe (And I must say, that in making this video, I found out one other thing:  Miss Blueberry is not a  Circus Animal.  She will not perform on command.  This is by no means Her best digging, but it is what SHe would do on camera.  For better digging, you may have to see Her in real life):

And there you have it.  HAPPY SATURDAY FROM ALL OF US AT THE LILYPAD!!

Who needs gossamer wings when you have rabbit paws, right, Blueberry?

(It's just one of those things.)

Ah, Happy Saturday, indeed!

That's some excellent digging!

So, are you scheduling appointments for us all to see her in person...or what?
