it was a nice day outside yesterday,
and our doberman was busy taking up my entire bed for his nap,
so i decided i'd take the bunnies to play in my backyard.
here's bunshine, my dutch netherland dwarf.
and amilye, my fatass hotot.
they were havin a great time, and bunshine somehow got stuck here:
and while i was attempting to persuade her out, amilye ran off and got stuck here, between two fences:
they were just hangin out there eatin grass and such, but then ran off to where i couldn't see them.
i called and called, shook a bag of their yogurt treats, and even that didn't work.
a couple hours later, my friend erik gets off work and comes over to my house for a bunny rescue.
he jumped up on the fence to the left, trying to find bunshine first. then noticed oh hey, my neighbours are on their back porch.
he asks if they've seen a rabbit, they have, and it's currently in their garden.
so he jumps down, him and the elderly woman chase bunshine around the yard for like 10 minutes, and she catches her.
i take bunshine inside while erik goes to the other fence where amilye is stuck
he walks along the top of that, but the right fence is so old and weak that it's breaking.
he can see that there are no other breaks in the fence, so amilye has nowhere to go but back into my yard.
he goes into that backyard, and then explains to the owner of that house what happened, who lets him stay in the backyard to get her out.
he has a shower curtain rod thing with him, which he pokes amilye's butt with as she hops along back to our yard.
the dude has dogs, and they were outside, so they kept scaring her all the way back to the start.
eventually she comes out, and i block off that area so she can't go back.
....and she proceeds to get stuck behind the wire fencing that bunshine got behind.
erik was able to get her to run out and into the yard by hitting the fence with the almighty shower curtain rod.
amilye gets back inside, and all is well again.
and that is a bunny rescue day.
[also, they aren't goin back out there without a pen to fence them into safety.]
