Haiku: The Excavator


Fluffy white bunny
Are you digging to China?
You’re cute and messy…

As you can see, our white, female rabbit – Cypress – loves to dig.  Because our rabbits are “house rabbits” they don’t have a yard to dig in, but they do spend their daylight hours on our covered and walled patio. Hubby was inspired to get some dirt from his father’s garden (we knew it would be pesticide and poison free) and let the rabbits have at it, and Cypress is quite the digger.  Pinto doesn’t dig nearly as much.  In fact, he seems most adept at getting dirt showers from Cypress and sitting there looking all spotted and cute!

The bunnies nearly always have us laughing, and digging is just one of the things they do that makes us laugh.  What do your pets do that crack you up?  I hope you’ll comment and share their antics!

Warm regards,

    Oh My Goodness!! This just totally made my morning, I just love how Cypress’s little bottom is against the bin and she is just throwing dirt. Pinto standing behind, lol.

    Meja and Pinto could be friends and Audrey and Cypress could cause trouble together. Have a wonderful day.

    Thank you for commenting! Isn’t she too much? She really gets that dirt flying! Sometimes she’s got a foot on each side of a corner of the box, and her fluffy tail and rump just crack me up. 😮

    OMG, too much cuteness! I especially liked when she was trying to bury her buddy.

    Thank you for your kind words, and for commenting! I think Pinto was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, but yes – he certainly did get his share of dirt, compliments of Miss Cypress!
