Dandy's Journal revisited

15 years ago today, Dandy published an account of his pet 2-foot's secret mission.




The special mission
Nov. 16th, 2004 at 7:43 AM
Arwen and Fizz
Well... It's finally time to tell you all about the mission that we sent the 2-foots on last Saturday. As most of you will be aware, our pet 2-foots have undergone two lots of intensive training with the Hairy Mob down at Ebony Eyes, so we decided that it was time to put their training to good use. We discovered that there was to be a gathering of pet 2-foots in a place called Bristol, so we decided to send our pet 2-foots so that they could help spread good advice on how best to look after buns everywhere.

Just to make sure that everything went according to plan, Auntie Francis (the best bunny vet in the world) went too. How all this worked was that the 2-foots were all assembled in two big rooms. One had pet 2-foots in it, and the other had vets who wanted to learn from Auntie Francis how to be good bunny vets. Obviously, Auntie Francis could not look after two rooms full of 2-foots all by herself, so there were some other bunny vets (obviously not as good as Auntie Francis, but not bad) to help her.

The day started with one of Auntie Francis's helpers, a bunny vet called Anna who told the pet 2-foots all about how to look for skin problems. She told them all about the different kinds of mites, ticks, lice, and other nasties that can cause us to have nasty irritations, or ear problems. She also warned the 2-foots how important it is to check for Fly strike which can be a killer! Anna also told them about Abscesses, Myxomatosis, and other things too numerous to mention. She also showed them lots of pictures, so they would know exactly what to look out for.

After Anna had finished her warm up act, it was time for the star attraction, AUNTIE FRANCIS - THE BEST BUNNY VET IN THE WORLD!!! Auntie Francis told them all about Dental problems, and how the very best thing to give us to eat is grass, hay, and greens, and how we don't need dried food at all! She also gave lots of good advice about checking to make sure that we eat our soft poo, as that is a good way to check that we are getting a balanced diet. She then went on to tell the 2-foots how important it is to check that we don’t have wet or dirty bottoms, and that if we do tend to be a bit prone, then it is a very good idea to trim off all our fur around our bits, about half way up our tails, and all down the inside of our back legs, as this makes it so much easier to keep clean. She also told them about e-cuniculi and the things to watch out for there.

The next vet to speak was a buck 2-foot called David with a bow round his neck I will resist the very great temptation to comment on this... Anyway, his speciality was eye problems, but rather than go into lots of detail about what he said, I'm just going to refer you to his website http://davidlwilliams.org.uk/

As 2-foots get tired very easily, they were then allowed to go for a rest, and to have something to eat and drink. Of course our pet 2-foots had been given strict instructions to make sure that they brought us lots of presents back, so they bought us a very nice red food bowl, some chew sticks, and something very special from the people at West Wales Willows, who have been trying an experiment. They have been drying plantain, and they gave our pet 2-foots a special bag of it just for us. IT'S BRILLIANT!!! I hope they start selling it soon!!!

After lunch, a 2-foot called Sharon and a helper told the 2-foots all about a special hospital just for buns that has been set up in Bristol, but as we don't live anywhere near Bristol, I am not going to bother writing about it, but if you are REALLY interested (although I cant imagine why you would be) you can read about it on the RWF website at http://www.rabbitwelfare.co.uk/index.htm

Next to speak was Emma, who told the 2-foots about e-cuniculi. She has put a lot of the information on this on the internet, so if you go to http://www.rabbitwelfare.co.uk/rwf/articles/ecuniculi.htm you can read all about it.

The day was starting to draw to a close by now, but there were still another 2-foots left to speak. There was one called John, who told them all about how we breath, and how to check that we don't have runny noses, that we don't sneeze because we have things like grass or hay stuck in our nostrils, and how the most important thing to watch for is if we are breathing through our mouths, because if we are, then we are very ill indeed. He gave lots of good advice such as if we are a bit snotty, then one thing that the 2-foots can do is to put us in a steamy bathroom with something aromatic like just a small amount of olbas oil in the water (but be careful not to use too much, as we are very sensitive).

Finally, the 2-foot called Sharon came back. She did very well as she is about to have kits, and was obviously a bit uncomfortable, as judging by what the 2-foots said about the size of her, she is probably going to have about 10! Anyway, Sharon talked about the different kinds of anaesthetics that bunny vets can use, but then she told them lots of gory stuff, so I'm not going to write about that.

I am pleased that our 2-foots came back with all the information, and that they had the chance to talk to other 2-foots to share advice, but most importantly that they brought us lots of presents back!

Well done Dandy for sending your 2 foots on this mission, i hope that they have learnt lots of stuff so that when our 2 foot has a problem with us she can rely on getting proper advice from your 2 foots.

Don't forget we are setting up a website so if you have anything that you would like to write up regarding problems that we may have please do and we will add it to the site.

Dandy's Journal revisited

15 years ago today, The Bunny-Mint was taking centre stage





The Bunnymint
Nov. 15th, 2004 at 4:29 PM

Hi all:

This is our business for the Bunny-mint this week:-

1. I also propose that we try to come up with a plan to make the sun warmer, as it does seem to be getting chilly and I'm worried the veggies won't grow if it gets too cold! Do we have a Department of Energy? - From Merridoe

2. We propose that all bunnies should be treated equally by 2-foots and buns and that Elderberry should stop bossing us around. - From Henbane and Bittersweet

3. I would like to propose something for voting this week.
With Christmas coming, my two foots always leave out a mince pie and a carrot for the blinkin reindeers.
Now I have nothing against Reindeers, but I do object to them being given one of my carrots.
It is bad enough that I have to share my carrots with the Piggies, but blinkin reindeer too. hmmm
I propose that Reindeer should not be given my carrots when they visit at Christmas!!
Thank you - from Buddy - The Helf Minister

4. Let the punishment fit the crime - from Pry-Minister Dandy.
We have had lots of suggestions for punishing 2-foots, so I propose that we lay down some rules as to how we should punish individual crimes. This is the list of punishments that everybun has come up with:-
a). The hay scatter - making as much mess as possible
b). The bowl toss - makes a mess AND makes a noise
c). Poo in the shoe - soft squishy ones are best
d). Thumping
e). Chewing important papers
f). Facing them with ears flat and staring
g). Spraying them with wee
h). The bunny butt - sit on the floor and face your tush at them
I). Wait till they are sleeping then make as much noise as you can until they wake up, the best time to do this is in the middle of the night.
j). Send them to the pub.
I think we need to handle this in two stages. First, I think we should split the punishments into three bunnydories (a bunnydory is an idea I stole from the meows who have categories). So please vote on which punishments you think are:-
1. severe
2. very severe
3. most severe
When you have done this, then we can go to the next stage which is deciding which crimes to apply them to.

Dandy's Journal revisited

15 years ago today, it was time for Dandy to discuss the latest votes in The Bunny-Mint.



This week's votes
Nov. 10th, 2004 at 2:58 PM

Well it's Wednesday again, so once more it's time to announce the results of the votes in this week's Bunny-mint.

1. From Elderberry - We propose that each and everybun gets given a double bed. This is great as then we can organize a great bed race and award medals for the best....

There were four votes for this one, but there were seventeen votes against, so I'm afraid there will be no beds provided.

2. From Merry - I hate the Vacuum Monster, too! The 2-foot I call Mom doesn't let it out for exercise every day, but it's definitely mean! And sometimes it comes near me! I get ready to pounce and save Mom, but then I get worried it might eat me and I run to hide. I propose a ban on these Monsters! They eat our food! The one in our burrow always takes nice bits of hay I'm hiding!

Twenty-one buns voted to ban the vacuum monster, so if your 2-foots let it out, they must be punished (more on this later)

3. From Pry-Minister Dandy - It is now starting to get colder and colder. Our pet 2-foots only think of themselves when they are working the big white thing that keeps the house warm. I propose that the 2-foots should switch on the big white thing and leave it on all the time, that way everybun will stay warm all of the time.

Twenty one of you voted in favour of this, so we can all expect to stay nice & warm from now on.


4. From Chance-Seller Flopsy Girl - Every morning, the 2-foots cover themselves in smelly stuff so that you can't smell their proper smell. I propose that this smelly stuff should be banned!

Again this one was carried by twenty one votes for, and none against, so smelly stuff is banned.


Finally, we get on to punishments. We have already had lots of suggestions for punishment, but please keep the ideas coming. That way, we can vote on them in next weeks Bunny-mint.

Some thoughts on our progress
Nov. 9th, 2004 at 11:45 AM

Well...

We have done a great deal, but we need to do more. We have formed Bunny-mint, and this has had some really good results. Buns are better fed, have more treats, more toys, and for the most part have better care from the 2-foots. Merry has also been elected Pres-I-dent, so I'm sure that she will shortly be doing lots of good things too.

There is something else we need to think about though. If we are going to take FULL control, we need to think of ways of keeping the 2-foots in their rightful place, that is, with us serving our every need.

We already have some good punishment ideas for them, such as sending them to the pub, and the old favourite poo in the shoe, but we really need to come up with some new ideas so that we can continue to keep them guessing. What do you think everybun, any suggestions?

Punishment
I think the Poo in a Shoe is a good idea, but I usually don't have extra squishy poos. I'm thinking that chewing the 2foots best shoes might be good...

Our personal favorite is the hay scatter. It's so funny to see mom cleaning up all the hay as we toss more around. The bowl toss is also a fun one, and gets their attention.

Nov. 9th, 2004 09:51 pm (local)
Oh, yes! How could I forget the hay scatter! And I always use the bowl toss when I'm hungry or bored.

Rightful places
Yes, poo in the shoo, thumping and chewing on important papers (we had to sign them of course!) were some favorites of Lady Bunny and myself.
But the best method was when we felt our 2-foots had stayed up too late watching the light up box and not letting us start our midnight frolics.
Lady and I would sit in front of the light up box, with our ears down and stare at our 2-foots. This disturbed them enough that they would retreat to their room and hide. We know this worked because we overheard them talking about how unnerving it was to get "the bunny stare".

Bunka Baby was usually already flopped out and snoring in the corner, so she wasn't any help.



Percy, Rosie and Dandy
Nov. 10th, 2004 02:12 pm (local)
Spraying them with wee works well. But it's only worth doing if you're a buck who hasn't been de-baubled, or who was de-baubled quite recently. That way it REALLY smells bad and they have to go and change their clothes. It's a good way to stop the 2 foots going out!

15 years ago today, Dandy was calling the Bunny-Mint to order.




The Bunny-mint is back in business
Nov. 8th, 2004 at 1:29 PM

Well my friends. Now that we have got the election across the pond out of the way, and Merry has been elected Pres-I-dent we can get back to our important work. Here are this weeks things to vote on:-

1. From Elderberry - We propose that each and everybun gets given a double bed. This is great as then we can organize a great bed race and award medals for the best....

2. From Merry - I hate the Vacuum Monster, too! The 2-foot I call Mom doesn't let it out for exercise every day, but it's definitely mean! And sometimes it comes near me! I get ready to pounce and save Mom, but then I get worried it might eat me and I run to hide. I propose a ban on these Monsters! They eat our food!

4. From Chance-Seller Flopsy Girl - Every morning, the 2-foots cover themselves in smelly stuff so that you can't smell their proper smell. I propose that this smelly stuff should be banned!

I must say that I am disappointed that we have so few ideas, ESPECIALLY when we voted last week that each group of buns should come up with a new idea every week, still... You have 4 things to vote on. We will count the votes in two days time as usual.

Hi!
1. Yes! What fun a double bed would be! I want one with wheels!

2. Of Course!

3. Yes! We don't have a white thing, but I'm guessing you mean the giant in the Baze Mint that blows nice warm air on me. It's usually not blowing during the day and it should be to keep me warm and comfy!

4. Yes! I actually already convinced the 2foot I call Mom not to wear smelly stuff, as I won't come near her if she smells weird and the 2foot I call Dad really never wore any of that smelly stuff.

I also propose that we try to come up with a plan to make the sun warmer, as it does seem to be getting chilly and I'm worried the veggies won't grow if it gets too cold! Do we have a Department of Energy?

Hi,

We are a group of buns who live in a 2-foot adoption centre in a place called RSPCA. We thought that we would like to cast our votes if allowed please.

1) - We are against this as we'd have no room to run
2) - We don't know what one o these is but they sound horrible so we agree with this
3) - Yes to this as well
4) - We don't have any smelly or non-smelly 2foots so we are not sure about this one.

High & Mighty
Nov. 6th, 2004 at 9:42 AM

As many of you, in fact all of you are aware, although I am the worlds most talentented, handsome, and modest bun, and on top of this incredibly brave, there is one thing that I don't like too much, and that is being up high. Consequently, I don't use the stairs, or climb very much, so I am horrified at the new spot that Flopsy Girl has chosen to relax.

As I have said before, we have our very own chair. It is the most comfortable chair in the house, it is in the best position, and what's more it's covered with lots of really snug blankets, but imagine my horror when Flopsy Girl jumped up from the chair seat and made herself comfortable on the chair back! IT'S MILES HIGH!!! All Flopsy Girl could say was that I should try it as it's really soft and snug, and that you can see for miles...

I think I will just have to take her word for it...

Good Resting Place
Hi Dandy

Mine and Caspers favourite resting place is behind the sofa where no one can see us and its nice and dark, we don't sit on chairs but that's because our 2 foot has made us some nice snug hiding places like behind the sofa and under the coffee table.

Show them all what you are made of... Be brave... For the next two nights, the 2-foots are going to be lighting fires, and letting off explosions. This is for 2 reasons:-

1. To celebrate Merridoe becoming pres-I-dent
2. Because they are stupid.

The vacuum monster
Nov. 4th, 2004 at 12:55 PM

It's too much... It really is!!!

There is one time of day that I REALLY do not like. That is when the vacuum monster comes out for it's daily exercise. Now I know that one of the 2-foots always keeps hold of it's tail so it can't get too near us, BUT IT HAS STARTED EATING OUR FOOD!!!

Yesterday, I took a particularly nice piece of toast that I had chosen specially, and I hid it in the corner for later on, but when the vacuum monster came out, it found it and ate it WHAT CHEEK! Not only that, but it usually steals any hay that it finds on the floor, and yesterday, it ate one of Flopsy Girl's cecals.

This simply has to stop. I don't mind it eating the 2-foots food, but when it starts eating ours, then something has to be done.

proposal
I hate the Vacuum Monster, too! The 2foot I call Mom doesn't let it out for exercise every day, but it's definitely mean! And sometimes it comes near me! I get ready to pounce and save Mom, but then I get worried it might eat me and I run to hide. I propose a ban on these Monsters! They eat our food! The one in our burrow always takes nice bits of hay I'm hiding!

Our 2 foot has brought a small vacuum monster into our burrow and it makes a lot more noise than the big one, She uses it to steal everything out of our enclosed burrow which is inside the big burrow.

My 2foots have one of those little Vacuum Monsters and they're pretty scary! At least the big ones have a tail you can try to catch, but the little one runs around in my personal room and eats all my stored "for later" hay! It even slurps up the marbles that I make especially for the 2foot I call Mom!

This weeks voting
Nov. 3rd, 2004 at 11:10 AM

Well not a full turn out by any means this week, but nevertheless, here are the results:-

1. From the Jerseymob
No 2-foot should be allowed to go out without first ensuring that the buns have plenty of toys available to play with

There were 20 votes for, and none against, so if your 2-foots do not provide you with toys, then send them to the pub for punishment

2. From Pry-Minister Dandy
All Buns should have their own chair, covered in nice soft blankets, that no 2-foot is allowed to sit on.

There were 14 votes for and 6 against, so again, if your 2-foots fail to provide you with your own chair, then choose one of theirs.

3. From Pry-Minister Dandy
All buns who are members of the Bunny-mint are to come up with at least one idea to vote on every week.

Accepting Bramble's Pack's amendment that each group of buns only needs to submit one idea per week, then this is passed by 19 votes for, and none against, so please get your subjects for next week's vote to us as soon as possible.

4. From Chance-Seller Flopsy Girl
The buns in the Rainbow chamber are to start doing some work. WE HAVE HEARD NOTHING FROM THEM!

There were 19 votes for this one, and none against, so the Rainbow Chamber had better start earning their keep!

It only remains for the Official Bunny-mint to congratulate Merridoe on what is an almost certain victory in her bid to become Pres-I-dent.

Today is a very important day for several reasons.

First and foremost, the single most important thing about today is that I now have a new picture (I hope you like the hat)

Secondly, there is some voting going on across the big pond. When it is over, Merry will be Pres-I-Dent (which is a VERY good thing).

Finally, please remember to cast your votes for all the items in this week's Bunny-mint, you only have one more day to do it.

Votes
1 - 16 votes for
2 - 10 votes for and 6 against. Tayberry, Elderberry, Blureberry, Bitersweet, Henabane and Blackthorn disagree. Tayberry because he now has a nice tunnel off Dandy's 2 foots . Elderberry disagrees and thinks all buns should have a 2foot sleepy thing called a 'Double Bed[' as they are great fun
3 - All disagree as we would have to give 16 proposals a week. We would like to propose that every group of buns provides one proposal a week.
4 - We all agree to this...

We would also like to point out that our 'puter is playing up. The 'Power Sup-lie' has broken. We think this has something to do with the control the bunny-mint has over 2foots so we are desperately hoping for a new one...

We're all very content here. We get food on demand, cuddles throughout the day, daily grooming, weekly manicures, lots of toys and have our trays cleaned twice-daily. The only thing we really want to change is the weather as we don't like getting wet and it rains a lot here.

Also, could we change our human as we think she's being a bit thick. We all like to read BunnyCamp News but, each time it's been sent, the human has saved it only to find it's an empty file of 0kb size. We went along to read it online but couldn't find any issues post-July and we really need to read Flopsy-Girl's problem page. Can you or your best girl help us with this, please?

As we are very important buns, we have our own chair. We often sit on it to watch the world go by, and I have to say that it is very comfortable. Our chair is covered in soft fleecy blankets with paw patterns on them, so no 2-foot can be in any doubt that it is the most important chair in the house i.e. OURS!

Every so often, the 2-foots decide to wash our blankets, so they cover our chair with towels. Although the towels are not as soft and fluffy as the blankets, they are a LOT more fun!!! Wen you dig at them, they scrunch up so you can bite them and REALLY annoy the 2-foots! We spent AGES this morning scrunching them up, then the 2-foots would straighten them out, so we would scrunch them up again, and so on!!!

Don't you just LOVE annoying 2-foots?

This week's votes
Oct. 27th, 2004 at 10:13 AM

As it is now Wednesday, here are the results of this week's votes in the Bunny-mint:-

1. From the Gower Bunn Gang
2-foots should not be allowed to bring anything new into the house that is likely to cause any disruption.

There were 21 votes for, and 1 against, so this vote is carried. If this pup-pee thing arrives with anybun, them send your 2-foots to the pub for punishment without delay

2. From the Jersey Mob
We propose that 2-foots stop being so lazy and are not to have anymore extra time in bed in the mornings just because they feel like it, they should be up playing with us when we are feeling playful

There were 22 votes for this one, so make sure that your 2-foots get the message by keeping them awake as much as possible.

3. From Bramble's Pack
We propose that Bill and Ben the flowerpot buns get moved into the shed so we can go downstairs and watch the light up box in the corner

There were 2 votes for this, and 3 against, so Bill and Ben can stay in the house.

4. From Chance-seller Flopsy Girl
I propose that the Bunny-mint needs taxis. These are very useful, as they allow the chance-seller to have lots of food & treats. To make it simple, all I ask is that everybun sends me half of all of their food and treats every week.

There were 3 votes for this and 19 against, so there will not be any taxis introduced.

One thing we have noticed. Although we now have one bun one vote, only Bramble's pack are bothering to vote separately. You could be missing out on a real chance to influence things, so have a think about it.

I have had to think hard on one of these this week,

1) - For, minimal disruption is the way i like things, so am all up for not bringing in strange things.

2) - For - Two foots should be up playing with us more.

3) - I am still undecided on this, as Bill and Ben could feel pushed out by being put into the shed, so the Light up box can be watched.

4) - Against - This just strikes me as being cheeky. So a definite NO!

Thank you

2 yes we agree with this, we are training our 2 foot well at the moment and she often wakes up before us now!

3 we disagree with this, we think bill and ben should become permanent fixtures of brambles pack.

4 we disagree with this, it's bad enough having to share food with each other, and anyway it would have gone off by the time it reached flopsy girl as the channels are a long way away!

Hi Flopsy girl we are glad that you are feeling better.

I have a problem, the scruffy one that i live with who is now 13 weeks old has started to try and play rodeo with me which i am not impressed with!

He also smells horrible, his wee and poos are very smelly which is quite off putting when you share a cage with him and especially for a clean bunny like me when i see he has left his poos lying round everywhere ( i don't do that!)

Is there anything you can recommend that my 2 foot uses to try and stop the smell being so bad? my 2 foot says that he will be going to the vets in a month for a operation that she hopes will help. I hope it helps too otherwise i might have to start wearing mask when i am around him, my 2 foot says that i was never that bad when i was young.

Oct. 21st, 2004 at 9:39 AM

Please could I ask everybun a favour? My best girl is not very well again. Her kid-knee stores are uncomfortable. What this means is that she does not eat as much as she should, and she can't control where she wee's. The 2-foots are giving her medicine and looking after her really well, but I can't help being worried, as I know that one of these days, she will have an attack and not get better from it.

Please will you all send Healing Vibes for Flopsy Girl (The best grey & white bunny in the whole world).

Oh Flopsy, I do hope you aren't being a drama queen to elicit sympathy from Dandy so he doesn't continue to moan about you not sharing the treats! I wouldn't put it past you!

But if our Chance-seller is genuinely poorly I send her my best wishes for a speedy recovery to full health and selfishness!

Dandy's Journal revisited

15 years ago today, Dandy had sad news.






Some sad new & this week's votes
Oct. 20th, 2004 at 12:09 PM

First of all, I'm afraid I have some sad news for you all. Duchess, who has been with the Hairy Mob for absolutely ages now decided to go to the rainbow bridge yesterday. We will of course celebrate her life in the usual way by having a HUGE wake!!!

Now for the results of this week's votes.

1. From Brambles Pack
2-Foots are to STOP taking us to see the vet!
There were 17 votes for, and 5 against, however, I think that we should take Melster's advice and add the word "enforced" as we may actually want to go to the vet's sometimes.


2. From the Jersey Mob
2-Foots must NOT keep any plants that are poisonous to bunnies
This one had 21 votes for and none against, so please make sure that your 2-foots throw away any poisonous plants without delay

3. From The Jersey Mob
Whenever the 2-foots go out for food for us, they MUST make sure that they bring herbs
Again there were 21 votes for and none against, so we have LOTS of lovely herbs to look forward to!

4. From Pry-Minister Dandy
I want to give special responsibility to the Spirit Buns. I propose that we form an "Upper Chamber". We can call this special place "The Rainbow Chamber". The idea is, that after the rest of us have voted on things, then the spirit buns can take a 2nd look at what we have decided, and if they think we are wrong, they can ask us to have another vote just to make sure. I think this would help us to avoid making hasty decisions which we may come to regret in the future.
The final resolution had 20 votes for, and none against, so it gives me great pleasure to announce that the rainbow chamber is duly constituted. I propose that our two most active spirit buns Melster & Bunnybunny get together and organise it as soon as possible.

Thumper-Binx was always a wise old bun, and more than that a very good friend. I'm sure that we would all be delighted for him to take an active part.... Especially as Melster & Bunnybunny seem to be shirking...

Melster
Oct. 21st, 2004 10:08 am (local)
Shirking?!
Listen pal, things are done at a much more leisurely pace here in the spirit world so you cannot always expect instant decisions! We also have a lot more buns to consult as you can imagine.
I can see you have been sensible enough to include my suggestions about enforced vet visits in this weeks results so obviously The Rainbow Chamber is demonstrating it worth already!

I presume I will have to resign from my post as Thumper of Bunnymint so who will succeed me?



(PS The Pry-Minister should note that I am going to be busy in another part of the spirit world from Friday til next Wednesday, so will not not be able to attend to any Bunnymint matters til I return. I'm sure the others will be fine without me or they are welcome to wait for my input if they want.
(But realistically we all know I will be giving my opinion anyway, whether it is still wanted or not!)

Re: Shirking?!
Oh Melster, I know you so well... I KNEW that my comments would prompt a reaction! I think as outgoing Thumper of the Bunny-mint, you should nominate your own successor, after all, you have done a very good job as Thumper, and you will be a hard act to follow... So I don't want anybun to blame me for choosing a replacement that might not be as good as you have been!

I trust that when you return from whatever business is taking you away that you will tell us all about your plans for the Rainbow Chamber, but don't forget to involve Bunnybunny & Thumper-Binx

Dearest Duchess
Well Violet and the other hairy mob spirit buns have certainly been pleased to see Duchess and although she is missing her Duke and the rest of the mob she is very pleased to have her leg back and be reunited with her buddies. (She said to tell everybun Violet has mellowed - it must be love!)

We have explained to her that although we will give her a few weeks to relax and enjoy her new surroundings she will soon have to knuckle down to the important work of The Rainbow Chamber - though she replied she would much prefer enjoying cocktails at The Rainbow Rooms!

Duchess is hoping her wake can rival other recent wakes - it's getting quite competitive up here and Peter is running a book on how Duchesses wake will compare! So Duchess requests that everybun to pull out all the stops to make her wake the biggest and best (and I have to agree, since I have a fiver on this!)

15 years ago today, Flopsy Girl was sulking.






Flopsy in a sulk
Oct. 19th, 2004 at 12:51 PM

So what have I done now you may ask? Well nothing that's what! It's not stopped Flopsy Girl from going into a sulk though. As you know, my best girl was very ill a little while ago, so now she has to take medicine twice a day every day. It's not so bad for her though, as it's not nasty medicine, and straight away afterwards, treats are brought out... but you see... there's the problem...

When the treats are brought out, there's always enough for both of us, so I join in... What's wrong with that you may well ask? Well Flopsy Girl has got it into her head that as she is the only one having the medicine, then she should be the only one having the treats! I mean! IS THAT FAIR? I always save all kinds of nice things for Flopsy Girl, and I spend almost all of every day looking after her and giving her licks & stuff, so a bit of bread stick and a few leaves of basil are not much to ask are they?

2. No Poison Plants - I'm all for that. There's no reason for plants to be DanJerouz!

My votes - if I can vote!
1. I agree - if we want to go and see any vets we should be able to decide this ourselves! No more enforced vets visits!

2. Obviously this is most important and 2-foots should be schooled in which plants are to be avoided as part of the basic survival skills they learn as children.

3. Herbs are an absolute must, and the allotments should be forced to keep a steady supply (and bigger packets).

4. Well, I'm not sure about this. It seems a good idea to have us Ratty-f-Eye all decisions but does that mean we can't vote anymore? Does it mean I have to be sensible and will get the blame for overturning decisions you have all made - sounds a bit scary! I abstain from this as I have a Vesty-Din-Tryst!

Too much cardboard?
Oct. 17th, 2004 at 10:43 AM

What with all the cardboard boxes we now have, I've been having a great time ripping them... and ok... yes... I do eat some of the cardboard from time to time...

The thing is, when the 2-foots brought our food yesterday, I just didn't feel like eating it, so I was FORCED to take 2 lots of medicine by the 2-foots! I got no sympathy from Flopsy Girl either. She just said it was all my fault for eating the cardboard in the first place...

The thing was though, a couple of hours later, I was RAVENOUS! I could have eaten the entire Sainsbury's allotment!!! Anyway, I enjoyed the food that I did have.

cardboard diet
We love eating cardboard but it never puts us of our food, we love eating all the time, our 2 foot says we are eating her out of house and home i wonder if that means we won't have anywhere to live soon.

Corrugated worries
Obviously it is good to tuck into a nice mouthful of cardboard when you fancy some but if it puts you off your food . . .
I don't think cardboard has much nutritional value and after a day or two you could find energy levels running low. You might find you are too knackered to eat at all, and then then what?!
Perhaps our Helf Minister could advise. Just what is the daily recommended dose of cardboard? How much is 'safe' to eat?

Birch is very very ill and we would like people to be directed to our journal as we have updated it... Also it has a request for everybun...

Cardboard RDA
Well as the Helf Minster, i have looked into this.
Now Cardboard, comes in different forms, normal and corrugated.
Now i am thinking that the corrugated stuff must be fixed together with some form of adhesive. This i can say is not good for you, Adhesive is bad for tummy's,
A little bit of cardboard i cannot see it being a problem, after all it can't be as bad as rubber, and i love a nibble on rubber every now and again,( specially the mote control ). Anyhow, it is not recommended that you eat so much cardboard that you cannot face your dinner. As we all know the buns in the wild don't have the same sort of food as us lucky enough to be loved by somebunny. Buns in the wild don't get cardboard, so i would think it safe to say it is not part of a natural diet, therefore we can find it difficult to digest.
I am not saying DON'T EAT CARDBOARD, coz we all know that would just be too difficult to do, all i am saying is in moderation is fine.
Thank you

Boxes
This seems a little unfair. As we would have to have 32 boxes just to have 2 each. It means that we would have to live in a box and not have any space to do 500's. We therefore think it should be per burrow.

we also propose that the 2foots stop taking us to the vets...

I'm very pleased to see that entirely due to the efforts of the Bunny-mint, nearly everybun has at least one box that they can play in... Why don't we have a little competition to see who can get the most boxes at any one time? Currently, we have 3 (if you count the Bunny-mint building, which I think is fair since it is made of cardboard), but I'm sure that somebun out there must have more than that?

This week's votes
Oct. 13th, 2004 at 12:56 PM

Well I left it as late as I could so that everybun would have a chance to vote. It all got a bit confused this week as buns were proposing ammendments all over the place, so to avoid confusion, and so everybun knows exactly what they voted for, I have decided not to count them. If anybun has a problem with this, they can raise it as a new vote for next week. There is one thing that troubles me though. It has been suggested that buns should get one vote per foot. Me and Flopsy Girl do not agree with this as it discriminates against 3 legged buns, so we will not be putting that to the vote no matter what anybun says.
Anyway, here are the results:-


1. From the Jersey Mob
No 2-foot should be allowed to hug us or to pick us up without permission.
7 votes for, and 1 vote against. So make sure that you make your 2-foots aware of the new rules. I suggest you bite them if they try to break the rules until they get the hint.

2. From the Gower Bunn Gang
No 2-foot is to be allowed to go out unless they leave food for us first.
8 votes for and none against, so if your 2-foots do this then they MUST be sent the the pub for punishment.

3. From Merridoe
No claw clipping is to be allowed as we need them for digging and destroying things
7 votes for and 1 vote against. If a 2-foot tries to clip your claws then bite them on the nose.

4. From Brambles Pack
As Hop now wears a red bandage, then Hop should be officially re-named "Santa's Little Helper"
7 votes for and 2 votes against. How do you like your new name Santa's little helper?

5. From Mayflower
Each and every bun should be allowed a vote. So far it seems that each group of buns has been getting together and voting just once.
6 votes for and none against, so from now on, each and every bun can vote. This will also mean of course that me and Flopsy Girl will start voting, as we have not voted so far as we believed that it should be all of you out there that made the decisions.

6. From Melster
Spirit buns should get 2 votes as they have lead two separate lives.
5 votes for and 2 against. This means that all spirit buns can vote twice, but as Melster has already pointed out, it may well be that the 2 votes cancel each other out if a spirit bun votes once as they would have done when they were alive, and for their second vote they have changed their opinion as they now think they know better now than they did before.


So there we have it, more good stuff from everybun. Don't forget, if you want to follow up on any of the failed amendments, you can raise them as something new to vote on for next week.
I'm going to start you all off though by developing an idea that came from Brambles Pack. Instead of giving spirit buns 2 votes, let them have their own say in things by taking a second look at all the things the rest of us are voting on. The 2-foots have a similar system, they call it an "upper chamber". Well anything they can do we can do better. As the Bunny-mint cardboard house has 2 floors, we'll call the top floor the Upperty eared chamber. I'll have a long talk with Flopsy Girl and we will make the proposal formally on Monday, along with anything new that anybun else suggests to vote on.

Elect-orial fraud
Dear buns,

It has come to my attention that Dandy bun may not be able to count the votes accurately. We therefore demand a recount. Even though this doesn't change any of the decisions made. Its the fine edge of the wedge and if Dandy continues to miss count then important issues ma be affected. Therefore I propose that we give a bun (volunteers please) to check the vote count and make sure Dandy isn't cheating.

Re: Elect-orial fraud
I did say that it had all been very confused didn't I? As you say yourself, you are not questioning any of the results, it's just that you have a problem with how I counted the votes. It's a good job I didn't have a go at you lot on how you tried to influence the vote by multiplying the number of your pack by the number of feet you have. I seem to remember that you were trying to vote something like 64 times!

As Pry-minister, I have a duty to see that everybun gets a fair say, and that nobun feels cheated. If on any occasion there is a close vote and anybun thinks I have counted wrong, then I will be happy to have a recount!

Not really as I would imagine that spirit buns can make their ears do anything they want them to

Re: Discrimination
But what if they want to have lop ears? Or what if they change the style of their ears from day to day? Maybe it could be the Long Eared Chamber? (Does anyone have short ears out there?)

Melster
Oct. 13th, 2004 09:45 pm (local)
No Discrimination
The way I see it is this. In the olden days any lop eared buns living in the wild were at a big disadvantage, not having full control of their ears to focus in on any noises etc. They would have relied on their up-eared friends and family to help them avoid danger etc. I also think lop ears are not very aerodynamic, so may have slowed down any running from danger too.

By calling it the Uppity Eared Chamber or similar (if we even decide to have one) we would merely be referring back to the past as a reminder of how far buns have come, that we can now live in safety and comfort whether we have up ears or down ears, four feet or three. We need to strive for the day when all buns have the same living standards. With the progress Bunny-mint is making I feel more optimistic about this than ever before.

(I speak as a bun with one lop ear and one in between - sometimes up, sometimes down as everybun can see from my picture, kindly posted on the hairy mobs website!)

Even I am a spirit bun and I can bend my ears all shape and direction. If we keep discuss this uppi ear chamber than some day we will talk about size of the ear. I think we already talking about long or short ear. I am a dwarf bunny. Not that I think size matter. I have big SMALL ears.

Voting by foot or ear does not make sense. I propose each bunny need to register for just one vote! But spirit bun has 2 vote.

A new box
Oct. 12th, 2004 at 10:06 AM

More good news about what we are achieving with the power of the Bunny-mint. Yesterday, my 2-foot (the one with no fur on the top of his head) came home with a brand new cardboard box for us. It's bigger than our old one, but the cardboard is not as thick, so it is a lot easier to make the necessary adjustments to the position and size of the holes in it.

As far as this weeks voting goes, there are still a number of you who have not yet voted, so make sure you get your votes in soon, or you will miss tomorrows count. I must say that the hairy mob have been very quiet lately. It's not like them to sit back and let the rest of us make all the decisions...

5. From Mayflower
Each and every bun should be allowed a vote. So far it seems that each group of buns has been getting together and voting just once.

6. From Melster
Spirit buns should get 2 votes as they have lead two separate lives.

So as you can see there is a lot to think about. Just like last week, we will leave it a couple of days before we count up all the votes so that everybun gets a chance to have their say.

Melsters musings
1. I agree with this 100%. Why they imagine they can pick us up at whim is a mystery to me! You don't see us licking them up all the time . . .

2. Definitely! This must be strictly enforced.

3. Definitely no claw clipping. If buns aren't doing enough digging or running so their claws are getting long and uncomfortable the Helf Minister will have to look into setting up some guy'd-lines to encourage exercise and activity in the warrens and condos.

4. I think Hop should be de-feeted on this (ha ha). I know Duchess had a different coloured bandage every week so what is to stop Hop changing from red to another colour, and then what will Santa do? No presents for us if he can't get enough help and having an 'awol' santa-helper with a blue bandage will make a laughing stock of Bunnymint and I will find it very hard to maintain order. So it has to be a definite NO to this one, and I urge every bun to vote the same!

5. I can't believe there was block voting and some buns had their views ignored! It's not a commune you know!! Yes, each bun must vote for themselves!

6. We this is very very good idea, someone very intelligent and knowledgeable must have suggested this (cough). Yes to spirit buns having 2 votes.

On that last point, I wonder if both votes would go the same way?! Because if it was already passed - on the one paw, when I was a living bun I would have said it's not fair on the living buns as most of the decisions in Bunnymint have more impact on the living buns . . . but on the other hand as a spirit bun I agree with it as we are more wise and knowledgeable . . . hmm. Food for thought!



Melster
Oct. 12th, 2004 09:00 pm (local)
Re: Recent comments
On the suggestion that each bun has a vote (or 2 votes) per foot. I'm not sure if this is being voted on this week or might be taken as an amendment. In my view it should be ignored . . . but just in case, I wish to point out that unless your feet are voting in different directions from each other the overall decisions will be unaffected - so all it does is make the vote counting harder and make extra work! It doesn't make any sense!
As for the comment that only spirit does should get 2 votes . . . frankly it is outrageous! Bucks must not be marginalised in this way, it's the thin end of the carrot! Next they will be extending this to include living bucks! Bucks do get things right and does would be lost without them. I should also highlight that the setting up of the wonderful Bunny-mint was the brainchild of a buck- and this is the thanks we get.

2) Yes from all for this as well

3) Definite yes as we all got our claws chopped today

4) All apart from Mayflower, Nettle and Hop as they think this is related to Hop they think Hop should have more votes on this issue.

5) Definite yes. If Merris amendment comes into force as well that gives us 64 votes.

6) NOfrom all. THe Spirit buns should create the Houses of Dominant bucks and Does and be allowed to stop proposals if they think they need amendment...

1 - No as the occasional surprise hug is always welcomed

2 - Yes this is a very serious issue. It should also be noted that if food is left then No-Bun should scoff it all immediately.

3 - No as I had brittle laws and they broke easily if they got too long and it hurts when that happens

4 - No as Hop is a much better name

5 - Yes as knowing the pack they are always confused about everything.

6 - No only spirit does should be allowed two votes as BUcks can't be trusted to do anything right. Although HAwthorns idea might work... Maybe it should be voted on next week.

1 - Yes i think the 2 foots should be able to pick us up when they want. They feed us and care for us and make us better when we are sick, therefore why should they not be allowed a cuddle from their favourite bun when they are feeling a little bit down, under the weather or just need some TLC.
I appose issue 1

2 - I definitely agree with issue 2, ample food should be left for us if the 2 foots go out.

3 - I appose issue 3, i need my claws clipped on regular basis, as i have funny eyes at the moment and clipping my claws stops me scratching my eye and making it bleed.

4 - Agree in principal, but must raise the point about when Hop is no longer wearing it and has become used to the name, what happens then?

5 - I agree that everybunny should have a vote in Bunny mint, that is surely what it is for?

6 - Agreed, spirit buns should have 2 votes. No more though.

Another day, another breadstick
Oct. 10th, 2004 at 11:30 AM

You know I really think that I have the best of both worlds here. As some of you know, Flopsy Girl has to have medicine twice a day to keep her kid-knee stones under control. The thing is, every time she has her medicine, the 2-foots bring a treat in straight afterwards. This morning, it was some basil & a breadstick. I have the best of both worlds as I don't have to take the medicine, but I still get to share the treats!

Breadsticks
I think that you have the best of both worlds as well by the sounds of it.

We like breadsticks as well but casper always pinches it. The visitor that we had stay with us last week, brought something called ryvita which she gave us, we quite like that to.

Our 2 foot keeps bringing in bowls of mixed salad with herbs in and chopped up celery and beans which casper seems to dive into, but the only bits i like out of their are a few bits of basil and rocquet, i have to admit i am not that keen on green stuff, maybe its because i don't see my 2 foot eating it very often, so i am not sure that it is safe enough, i would much rather eat what she eats!

Oct. 9th, 2004 at 8:41 AM

So much to do, so little time!

Today, Me and Flopsy Girl have decided that we need to work very hard at relaxing. I know that this is very strenuous exercise, but every so often you just have to work hard at things to keep in shape.

First of all, we are going to relax on the chair. This is particularly hard work, as we have to jump up onto it.

Next, we are going to relax under the table at the front of the living room. Again, this is very hard work as we need to jump down from the chair to get there.

Finally, we are going to relax under the table at the back of the living room. This is the hardest work of all, as we need to go the whole length of the living room to get there, and when the 2-foots bring food in, we have to run all the way to the front of the living room to get it!

Obviously, we are going to have to have a rest this evening after such an intense day, so we propose to snooze next to our food.

15 years ago today, Dandy had solved a mystery



A mystery Solved
Oct. 8th, 2004 at 3:30 AM

Upstairs is a room where Flopsy Girl sometimes has to go when her bum needs a wash. In this room is a HUGE thing that you can put water in, and every day, the 2-foots fill it with water and splash about in it. Now I have never understood the reason for this, at least not until today...

This morning, I was in a VERY good mood, so I allowed my 2-foot (the one with the fur on the top of her head) to take me upstairs and put me on that bed thing that they sleep on. Well The other 2-foot was still in the bed thing and I really enjoyed it when they both made a fuss of me... That is until the 2-foot (the one with no fur on the top of his head) lifted his arm up WHAT A STINK!!! It smelt like something had crawled into his armpit and died!

Anyway, to cut a long story short, after he went and splashed about in the water, the awful smell went away, so that must be why they do it, but why they don't just lick themselves clean like we do totally baffles me.

the mystery solved
My two foots use a smaller version of what you are talking about, it lives in the ki-chin. They sit me on the big silver thing and wash my eyes for me, I don't really mind my eyes being washed as it helps get all the sticky stuff out. Maybe that is what your's do, they have a big version thet they wash their eyes in too, i bet at some point though they fell in and decided that they could probably wash everything whilst in there and that way they didn't have to lick themselves, the water would do it for them.

The poo competition
Oct. 7th, 2004 at 9:00 AM

Good morning readers. You may remember that yesterday, me and Flopsy Girl decided to see who could leave the most sticky squashy poos around for the 2-foots to stand in, well I have to say, that best girl of mine gets the prize! Not only did she do the most, but she did one that the 2-foots didn't see, so when they let the vacuum monster pick all the dust up from the floor, it ran over this particular poo AND SMEARED IT ALL OVER THE PLACE!!! The 2-foot had to get down on his hands & knees & scrub the floor clean, it was hilarious.

We are still deciding what we are going to do today, but we have already chewed up lots of cardboard and spread it around, and are considering weeing in the doorway next.

Just a last word. Nobun has suggested anything to vote on in next weeks Bunny-mint yet. Are you getting bored with it already?

Thanks for that, I'm sure that one will cause quite a bit of discussion. The trouble is with some buns, it's like a game. Take Flopsy Girl for instance. The 2-foots have to pick her up twice a day to give her medicine. Now Flopsy Girl knows this and she also knows that we ALWAYS get treats after she has been picked up, but that does not stop her running around and thumping, just because (quite rightly) she enjoys making life difficult for the 2-foots!

Dandy's Journal revisited

15 years ago today, Dandy was announcing a new set of votes.





Votes
Oct. 6th, 2004 at 9:38 AM

Well this is a really busy week. We had lots of things to vote on, and there was quite a bit of discussion. There was a lot said about whether newspaper is a good thing, and there were lots of suggestions for alternatives. I think the best thing would be, if anybun wants to propose an alternative, then we can all vote on it next week. I am very interested also how we are going to enforce some of these decisions, and again I would like to hear your ideas.

Anyway, here are the results of this weeks votes:-

1. From Buddy (Helf Minister)
Everybun where possible should be given their very own Chateau Bunny, or if this is not possible, then a really good cardboard box to play and hide in.

There were six votes in favour of Buddy's proposal, and none against, so that vote is carried. Please let us all know if any of you get new boxes as a result of this.

2. From Willow (Minister for Channels)
A permanent supply of newspapers to be made available to spread about, dig in, and chew.

There was one vote in favour of this, but five votes against. Everybun seemed to agree that they should have something, but nobun could agree what, so this one is de-feeted.

3. From Willow
Everybun to be given a slice of toast every day

There were three votes in favour of this, and two votes against, so this vote is carried. I enjoy my toast every day, and I hope you will all enjoy yours.

4. From Arwen
2-Foots are not to go away on long journeys in the big metal box on wheels without express permission from their owners.

There were six votes in favour of this, and none against, so make sure that your 2-foots understand that it's now a rule that they MUST follow.

5. From Arwen
Bucks should be stopped from chasing does around when the doe is not in the mood. If bucks persist in this, then they should not be surprised if they get a nip!

There were five votes in favour of this and just one against, so it looks as though the does are going to have an easier time of things from now on. Me and Flopsy Girl are still going to chase each other though because it's fun!

6. From Hazel
As the Pry-minister has been given his very own official metal box on wheels, then everybun else should get one too.

There were four votes in favour of this, and two against. I must say that I am very interested how you are going to enforce this rule with your 2-foots though.


Please don't forget that we need some suggestions if you want to vote next week, but right now, me and Flopsy Girl have decided that we are going to have a competition. We are going to see who can leave the the most big squashy poos on the floor for the 2-foots to stand in.

Another victory
Oct. 5th, 2004 at 10:05 AM

Regular readers may remember that there is a forbidden corner where the 2-foots pile tings up to stop us getting in. This is to protect their precious electric wires, but it's a REALLY nice corner, and me & Flopsy Girl have always tried to get in there whenever we can.

We got in there again yesterday, so we have FORCED the 2-foots to re-arrange things so that we can spend as much time in our new corner as we like.

He, he, he! I snuck into one of the Forbidden Rooms the other day, too - one where there are lots of lovely wires to chew!

I managed to sneak into the room where the 2foots eat when they have other 2foots visiting! They really don't like when I'm in there. Hehe...it was fun, because they have a big round wooden thing that I fit under, but mom can only fit under if she gets down on all fours, and then she can't move as fast.

I played tag with her for a long time.

15 years ago today, the bunny-mint was very busy.




This weeks Bunny-mint business
Oct. 4th, 2004 at 9:20 AM

First of all, I have an announcement to make. Melster has very kindly volunteered to be Thumper of the Bunny-mint. It will be Melster's job to bring anybun in line that does not show me enough respect.

Now to this week's business. We have had a lot of really good suggestions for new things to vote on. I won't count the votes until the middle of the week though to make sure that everybun gets a chance to have their say.

1. From Buddy (Helf Minister)
Everybun where possible should be given their very own Chateux Bunny, or if this is not possible, then a really good cardboard box to play and hide in.

2. From Willow (Minister for Channels)
A perminant supply of newspapers to be made available to spread about, dig in, and chew.

3. From Willow
Everybun to be given a slice of toast every day

4. From Arwen
2-Foots are not to go away on long journeys in the big metal box on wheels without express permission from their owners.

5. From Arwen
Bucks should be stopped from chasing does around when the doe is not in the mood. If bucks persist in this, then they should not be surprised if they get a nip!

6. From Hazel
As the Pry-minister has been given his very own official metal box on wheels, then everybun else should get one too.

So there are lots of things to vote on this week, so please keep the ideas coming in. There is one thing to remember though when you are voting. You have to think what we are going to do if we pass something, and then the 2-foots fail to make it happen. It should be simple enough for them to provide things like carboard boxes and metal boxes on wheels, but supposing we were to ask for something that they genuinly could not provide (such as common sense for instance).

On a more personal note, I am happy to report that we sent our 2-foots to the pub yesterday for punishment, and they came home in aright old state, so it obviously worked.

We agree with all of the proposals this week, especially the toast one!

Melster
Oct. 4th, 2004 01:59 pm (local)
1. Yes everybun should have a house or good box! It's a basic need!

2. Somebun told me that newspaper print can be poisonous to buns in large amounts so I am cautious about this one. But we definitely need a pile of something to delve into and chew.

3. Have to agree here. My 2-foot used to cut out shapes of bread with a cookie cutter and bake them in a warm oven. Much better than toast!

4. You mean this actually happens? Those naughty 2-foots! Mine were well behaved in this respect at least.

5. No doubt about it, but being so gorgeous and charming, I have never had to force my attentions on any doe . . .

6. I disagree here. The Pry-Minister needs to have the trimmings befitting his very important role in Bunny-mint. We cannot allow the owning of metal boxes to become common-place for the masses or we will have to get a metal box with wings for the Pry-Minister. As who will be pawing the bill for this? The subjects of Bunnymint of course!

Special status of the Pry-Minister
I am very pleased to see that Melster is taking his new role as Thumper of the Bunny-mint very seriously. He is already pointing out how special I am.

Re: Special status of the Pry-Minister
We of the hop-i-sit-on feel that Dandy being the only bun with a box on wheels is extremely selfish and that he should share it with every other less privileged buns such as Scoot and Birch who can't walk. We also feel that if Dandy is given any more special status his head won't fit in his 2foots condo...

Re: Special status of the Pry-Minister
Ah Mayflower. Once again you have nothing constructive to add. Scoot does not need his own box on wheels, as he has 2-foots that carry him everywhere he wishes to go. Birch should be given the same privileges, and as Pry-Minister I decree that this shall be so.

Oct. 5th, 2004 12:08 pm (local)
Our votes
1) Yes we all agree with this but feel tha the bun should be allowed to do what they want with the box
2) No some buns should not be allowed near newspaper as they get very grubby feet. This is therefore bad and they should all be provided with plain paper instead.
3) No as not everybun likes toast. We of the hop-i-sit-on feel that everybun should be given a treat of their choice everyday.
4) We agree with this but feel that it should be amended to allow trips to the allotment.
5) And does...
6) Birch has already got her own metal box on wheels and therefore feels that verybun should suppor this motion. - Especialy Melster or we'll get Bramble to mash you....

(1) Good grief! I can’t imagine a bun without a house to demolish, but isn’t Chateux Bunny that funny stuff made from raisins? Anyway I vote Yes!
(2) I don’t like newspaper. If I step into it, I will have to spend hours to clean my feet. Vote No!
(3) Toast is … What kind of bread? Vote No!
(4) Send them to pub!! Vote Yes!
(5) Why do we have to pry into girl and boy buns personal business????? Nooooooo!
(6) Why does anybun need a metal box? Just because Dandy has one, do we all have to have one?? All we need is a 2-foot to answer on demand as chauffeur to take us wherever we want to go!

One thing I’m worried about is all this talk about mashing bunnies who are doing their jobs. Who knows? Bramble might take a liking to Melster too…

How dare they! The indignity!! The barefaced cheek!!!
The 2-foot with the fur on the top of her head decided to pick up me and Flopsy Girl, carry us upstairs, and put us on that bed thing that the 2-foots sleep on. The other 2-foot (the one with no fur on the top of his head was in it at the time, oh and you should have heard them! They were SO pleased with themselves at the way they had behaved, well let me tell you, we are not standing for any more of this, WE ARE SENDING THEM TO THE PUB FOR PUNISHMENT!

Voting & stuff
Oct. 2nd, 2004 at 9:20 AM

Melster asked a question last week. He asked what the timetable was for the Bunny-mint. When do we take votes? when are they counted? You know the kind of thing.

Well I think we are getting into some kind of routine now. What I try to do is to gather up everybun's ideas and list them all on a Monday so that you can all vote on them. Me and Flopsy Girl then leave it for a day or so to give everybun a chance to vote, and then we count up and let you all know the results. You can send us ideas anytime though, and we will try to organize votes as quickly as we can.

We have some VERY important things to vote for on Monday, so I hope that you all pay extra special attention.

Back to business with the Bunny-mint
Sep. 29th, 2004 at 9:38 AM
Arwen and Fizz
First of all I would like to thank everybun who supported me against Mayflower after such a totally unprovoked attack. Mayflower is proving to be a right pain in the scutt, but I think that Chance-seller Flopsy girl has come up with a solution that will please everybun, so I would therefore like to announce that Mayflower has been appointed "Leader of the hoppy-sit-on". This is a job that will really suit Mayflower as all the leader of the hoppy-sit-on has to do is to moan about everything that the pry-minister does.

Secondly, time to announce the results of this week's votes.
The first thing we voted on was whether buns should be given greens every day. This was carried by 6 votes for, and none against, so we can all look forward to lots more nice things to eat from now on.
The next thing was a vote to see if we should have more raisins, and craisins. This was carried by a majority of 6 votes to 1, so if me and Flopsy Girl don't see some soon, we will be sending our 2-foots to the pub for punishment.
The last thing we voted on was whether cuddles should be restricted to doe 2-foots. Well there was a lot of debate about this, as a lot of buns don't like cuddles at all, and others prefer attention from the buck 2-foots. Anyway, the result was that we had 3 votes for, but 5 votes against. I therefore have to announce that this one has been de-feeted (well it will save on cutting claws).

Please do not forget. It is important that you all have a good think so that you can come up with some ideas on things to vote on next week.

Next weeks votes
I would like to propose that everybun should be given a chateaux bunny or if the two foots cannot provide a chateaux Bunny a nice sized cardboard box to make our own.
When my two foots are out i sometimes go and talk to the Guinea Pigs. In their enclosure they have a house each. Made of straw and stuff, although partially eaten both of them have a house they can run into and destroy when they feel like it.
I on the other hand do not.
So i would like to propose that a ruling be passed so i can have a House too. I will solemnly promise to do all the home improvements myself and decorate it to the highest standard.
I think that everybun should be given a house if they don't already have one.
Thanks

well done Dandy, for finally getting round to counting the votes.

we also propose that every bunny is given a slice of toast each day to munch on.

Well I don't get to the poota for a few days and look what happens! After all that hullabaloo I can see a slot that needs filling - for a 'Thumper' in Bunny-mint! The 2foots have a 'Speaker' who says "Calm down, calm down" when things get out of hand.

I think it is a wonderful solution to this challenger Mayflower make the appointment to Leader of the Hoppy-sit-on! Although it really was a cheek what was said about you Dandy, after all you have done for buns through the establishment of Bunny-mint. So let's see what Mayflower can do!

I'm glad the 2-foot cuddling was de-feeted (sounds nasty which is what it deserved) as I am not a fan - except from my Violet of course!! (Swoon!)

Can you clarify what day each week the full list of proposals will be posted, and what the voting deadline will be? I am not into the swing of this yet.

Good for you Dandy, don't let him get you down.

I would like to propose (on behalf of all the buns in Nuhvaduh) that 2foots should not be allowed to got on long trips in the big noisy box without express permission from buns. Should they do this they should be immediately sent to the pub for re-training.

And I would like to make my own proposal that buck buns should not chase doe buns around the yard if the does do not wish it. Should the bucks chase anyway, they should not get upset and bite the does when they are mashed

Counting the votes
Sep. 28th, 2004 at 9:33 AM

Lots of votes are coming in for the things raised in this week's meeting of the Bunny-mint. I have decided not to count them today though for 3 reasons.

1. It gives more of you more time to vote
2. Flopsy Girl needs a cuddle
3. I can't be bothered.

Flopsy Girl is more like her old self today. I have been worried about her for the last two days as her kid-knee stones have been hurting her a bit, but I suppose that it's only to be expected that she will have odd days where she does not feel as well as normal.

Pry Minister
I am calling for a vote of no confidence against the pry minister Dandy as he's not doing his job properly. Although it is understandable that Flopsy girl is ill and he should devote his time to her it does not take that long to look at the votes and see that the Bunny-mint has voted in favour of more greens else some 2foots get sent to the pub or mashed. In favour of more raisins and hung (that is both sides are the same) about the hugs.

Therefore I say we sack Dandy as Pry Minister and vote for a new one... Preferably me!!!
