Dandy's Journal revisited

15 years ago today, Dandy was being very generous with his wit and wisdom.





Good Morning
Jul. 21st, 2004 at 7:17 AM

Good morning everybun.

I thought that it was time that I gave you some of my wit and wisdom (see how generous I am?). I have been considering 2-foots and their relationship with each other.

2-foots are amusing creatures. True, they are of very low intelligence, and don't always realise what the important things in life are, i.e. A nice carrot, the odd treat stick, eating your own poo, but nevertheless, they can be very rewarding to watch.

I would always recommend keeping a bonded pair, although you should be aware, 2-foots rarely mate for life, and you should be prepared to mix and match where necessary to achieve the best bond for the longest possible period. Also, 2-foots never seem to establish who is the dominant partner. they will both behave like each of them is in charge, and then every so often when one of them can't get their own way, they sulk. This is a very funny thing to watch, as what is already a stupid animal get's even sillier, they will say stupid things to each other in loud voices, and then after a while, it will be like it never happened, I think it's some kind of ritual they have to go through.

Another thing they do (especially the does) is to spend lots of time covering themselves up. Instead of just having one set of things to cover themselves up that can be kept handy, ours have ROOMFULL'S of stuff, so they can never decide which ones to use! Our doe (the one with the fur on the top of her head), even goes so far as to put stuff on her face to try to cover it up. Maybe it's so nobody will recognise her?

The buck is even more stupid. Even though he has no fur on the top of his head, fur grows on his face, so what does he do? HE SCRAPES IT OFF!!! We laugh ourselves stupid watching him!

Then we have their eating and sleeping habits. The food they eat IS DISGUSTING instead of eating it all nice and fresh like we do, they BURN IT FIRST! sometimes, me and Flopsy Girl can't eat our own food because we are laughing so much. Then they run around doing nothing in particular for a couple of hours before sitting down in front of the light up box, where they promptly fall asleep for an hour or two, now you would think that would be long enough for any creature, but not a 2-foot, oh no, they wake up, do a bit more running around, one of them cleans out our litter tray, and then they go upstairs to go to sleep again SOMETIMES FOR AS LONG AS 5 HOURS! This of course give me and Flopsy Girl lot's of time to do all the things we want to do like dig the carpet, poo in their shoes, chew the books & magazines, and all the other things they seem to object to without interference, so it's not a bad thing.

In the morning they wake up, run around like maniacs, see to our needs (of course) and then the whole business starts again.

If you take my advice, if you don't already have one, then get yourself a bonded pair of 2-foots. They will provide HOURS of entertainment.

2foots
As you know we have a bonded pair - they are amusing as you say and can be quite funny to have around :-)
If we thought that our 2foots where slipping in any way we would trade them in immediately - there are always 2foots looking for new homes and if you can get a bonded pair from a sanctuary it saves you the bother of having to bond them yourself :-)

I have a bonded set of 2foots and it’s definitely easier if they’re bonded before you adopt them (as Hippityhops can attest). They’re really funny and cute to watch! I totally agree that their habits and rituals are very interesting. My Doe (the 2foot I call Mom) seems to be much more vocal than the Buck (Dad). I wonder if all bonded pairs are like that?

Vocal 2-foots
It depends what you mean by vocal. Our doe 2-foot (the one with fur on the top of her head) never seems to stop talking, but the other one (the one with no fur on the top of his head) will insist on making a terrible noise on the wooden box with wires stretched accross it, and squalking along with the row it makes.

Re: Vocal 2-foots
Oh, my doe 2foot never stops talking and SHE's the one in my burrow that has the wooden box with the squeaky strings stretched across, so she's definitely the noisier one!

15 years ago today, Dandy was talking about 2-foots and BunnyTunes. At this time in his life, Dandy had yet to learn to love BunnyTunes...




My Friend Lisa
Jul. 20th, 2004 at 6:59 AM

I have a friend called Lisa, she is a 2-foot. Yes, I know that's strange, having a 2-foot as a friend, but Lisa sometimes writes to me (although not for a while), and she always has nice things to say. Lisa lives in a place called Birmingham, which is near where Auntie Barbara lives. Birmingham must be a big place though, because the weather is a lot warmer where Lisa lives than where Auntie Barbara is. Last week, my pet 2-foot (the one with no fur on the top of his head) was sending a parcel to Lisa, so Flopsy Girl sneaked in a copy of the Ebony Eyes single. Lisa was SO impressed that she is contacting the hairy mob to see if she can make a donation!

I have to say, personally, I think the Ebony Eyes single is truly awful, but the 2-foots seem to like it, and if it helps to raise money for Ebony Eyes, then it can't be all bad!

If you would like a copy of the Ebony Eyes single, then just drop me a line at bcnews@virginmedia.com and we will see what we can do.

We had a mail from your friend Lisa last night Dandy, she seems nice for 2foot really - then again, she did say that she was also a friend of your 2foot (the one with no fur on his head) - she went down a little in our estimation then as she would have to be slightly De-Meant-Ed to have your 2foot (the one with no fur on his head) as a friend and openly admit to it!
Still, for a 2 foot she can get 5 out of ten - maybe she has never actually met your 2foot (the one with no fur on his head) so she would have a good excuse for being so silly really?

Re: Lisa
Hmmm, don't know about Auntie Barbara knowing anything, she is only a 2foot after all - must ask Thai, Dizzy, Tinker and Bimbo.
We have not heard of Alley Bamma but we hope its nowhere near Alley Baba 'cos that part has 40 thieves in it! Imagine any theives trying to get our food? Violet would mash 'em to bits!

15 years ago today, Dandy was looking back on a fantastic day...





WHAT A FANTASTIC DAY!!!!!!!!
Jul. 19th, 2004 at 7:01 AM

IT WAS FANTASTIC!!!

After a very pleasant breakfast of mixed herbs, and a quick chew on a treat stick, Me and Flopsy Girl went out in the garden. I must say, I DO think that Flopsy Girl looks fantastic in her new lead & harness, it's a blue one which looks REALLY good on her, and looks just right against my red one.The weather yesterday was just perfect. The sun shone, but it was not too warm, the grass was lush but not too long, the binkies were fast and high, but not too strenuous...

If I could choose a day to live over and over again, it would be yesterday. Both 2-foots in attendance, my best girl by my side, it was just... PERFECT!

In the evening, we had a banquet of plants from the garden, and salad from the Sainsbury's allotment, followed by lot's of attention from the 2-foots...

An improvement
Jul. 16th, 2004 at 6:54 AM

I am pleased to report an improvement in behaviour. The 2-foots did not go out last night, and though one of them (the one with no fur on the top of his head)went to bed at about 12:30, the other one stayed downstairs with us all night. I'm not sure it was deliberate though, as she was snoring all the time!

The 2-foots were charging around all over the place this morning. Not only did they sort out the clothes they are wearing today (why do they bother covering themselves up, does anybun know?), but they also sorted out some more clothes, and Flopsy Girl heard them talking about GOING OUT THIS EVENING! I mean, HOW DARE THEY EVEN THINK ABOUT IT? We will have been on our own all day, and now it looks as though we will be on our own tonight as well!!!

It's back
Jul. 13th, 2004 at 7:00 AM

Well the sun is shining down on us this morning, so I owe a big thank you to Merry ( http://www.livejournal.com/users/merridoe/ ), and to the Hairy Mob ( http://www.livejournal.com/users/thehairymob/ ) Merry had the sun in Lawn Guyland, but she sent it across the big pond but it got stuck in a box at the Hairy Mob's place. The mob set it free though, and now it is shining down on us.

Flopsy Girl went to see Auntie Francis (The best bunny vet in the world) last night. It was time for her VHD jab. Auntie Francis said that there are lots of wild buns who are dying around here because of VHD, so it is REALLY important that we all keep up to date with our injections.

Today, I am mostly going to be eating & sleeping.........

Dear All:

I am very concerned that someone may have misplaced the sun. Me and Flopsy Girl have not seen it for quite a while now, and we are beginning to think that it may have been put away somewhere and forgotten about.

Could you all please have a good think when the last time was that you saw it, and if you did anything with it. Please check under your litter trays, and in any cardboard boxes that you have not played in for a while, just in case it has been shut in, or trapped somewhere.

He must be at the root of any trouble as it is only since he was due to arrive that they have disappeared!

Today is going to be a good day... I know that today is going to be a good day, because not ONLY have we had our morning parsley, but we have also got a treat stick!!!

Flopsy Girl was rather surprised though when the 2-foots gave us the treat stick, as she thought they might be sulking after she presented them with stickiest bum of her whole life last night!

She had been planning it for weeks. She has been spotless for ages and ages, but last night's effort was truly spectacular! It took half a pack of baby wipes, and three changes of water in the bath before the 2-foots got her clean! all in all a VERY satisfactory effort.

Another 2-foot training day
Jul. 8th, 2004 at 6:57 AM

Good news everybun!

For those of you who have 2-foots that managed to wriggle out of attending the 2-foot training day, the hairy mob are planning another one!

They have not set the date yet, but it is to be sometime in September. So if your 2-foots missed the last training day, or if they attended the last one, but could do with a bit of a refresher course, then you had better start planning to make sure that they attend.

Our 2-foots have shown a definite improvement since Violet threatened to mash them, but still we intend to send them down there again, just so they don't start backsliding.

So we can all look forward to endless pampering... treats... presents... toys... ahhh...

As I told you in my journal yesterday morning, the 2-foots brought us a new cardboard house back from the bunny camp open day on Sunday. Now don't get me wrong, we are not ungrateful, it's just that we had got the old one adapted to our needs, and there were several features that this new one just did not have! Well, we started early yesterday morning, and we adapted one of the upstairs windows to make it bigger to give us a better view, and we removed one corner from downstairs to improve ventilation. We will probably adapt the tunnel next.

You would think that the 2-foots would have been pleased that we had shown such an interest, but NO! One of them (The one with the fur on the top of her head) did nothing but complain that we had already started working on it, and that it was starting to look like the old one after only a day. WELL OF COURSE IT IS STUPID! THAT'S HOW WE LIKE IT!!!

Why are 2-foots so thick?

Ma Reed
I had to ask Flopsy Girl about this one. Apparently, Ma Reed is a 2-foot that travels about helping 2-foots with their bonding. When Ma Reed is satisfied that they are properly bonded, she gives them a certificate. They are also ringed so that other 2-foots can tell that they are bonded.

As with all other 2-foot activities, they are masters at over-complicating what should be a very simple process. When we want to bond, we just get on with it, we don't need Ma Reed coming round to show us what to do!

Silly 2foots! Mine are always rearranging my cage. The one I call Mom finally gave up putting my food dish in the far corner 'cause I'd always move it to the center of my room. At least they seem to be capable of learning after a while! I'll train them yet!

Dandy's Journal revisited

15 years ago today, Dandy was very excited about his new toys.






Toys toys toys!!!!!!!!!!
Jul. 5th, 2004 at 7:10 AM

It'S BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!! The 2-foots came home last night with all sorts. First of all, they brought in a BRAND NEW CARDBOARD HOUSE... which was just as well really. as we had eaten most of the old one. Then they brought in an orange thing, that looks a bit like a squat carrot with a green top, but you can throw it around, and it rattles, THEN they brought a coloured thing to chew that helps clean our teeth, and THEN the STRANGEST thing of all. it's a kind of salt lick, but it's flavoured (it's really nice), and according to the 2-foots,it's shaped like an I scream cone. Now when they said it was like an I scream cone, I was a bit afraid to lick it as I did not want to hear it scream CONE (or anything else for that matter), but as usual, the stupid 2-foots were wrong about it, as it makes no sound at all!

Anyway, all in all the 2-foots did well, and brought us lots of nice things so we may consider not pooing on the carpet today...

Pooing
I'm seriously concerned that you need to have your 2-foots properly trained as soon as possible. They could and should have gone for training by the Hairy mob, and similarly, they could have gone to the Bunny Camp open day, then they would have been able to get you lots of treat & toys.

I think pooing all over the place is the very least you should do.

Toys (my two foot is trained)
Well my two foot must be very well trained as I have all of those toys that your two foot bought for you guys today ALREADY!
I have a carrot with a green top which rattles when you throw it, another two carrots on a circle with a rabbit that rattles (toss and throw), five teddies (some rabbits, some bears), three rattly balls, a bunny bounce which gets filled with treats and jingles, big cardboard houses to play in, and lots lots more... including a fat leopard which makes a funny noise when you hump it, its my hump buddy!

15 years ago today, Dandy was musing about Saturdays...




There are some very good things about Saturdays
Jul. 10th, 2004 at 8:26 AM

I think what is best about Saturdays is that only one of the 2-foots (the one with the fur on the top of her head) goes to work. The other one stays at home for a while. This means, that there is more time to sort out breakfast!

Take this morning for example. The 2-foot with no fur on the top of his head went out into the garden and gathered some yarrow, some sage, and some parsley (both normal, and flat leaf varieties), now that's what I call a breakfast!!!

Saturdays are nice, but usually my 2foots are noisier than usual 'cause they don't bother going to work that day. I don't get my full mid-day nap and beauty sleep, so I get a little cranky. But I usually get an extra nice salad and that makes up for it!

The Party For Jacob's Passing
Jul. 3rd, 2004 at 11:01 AM

That brilliant bun Jacob went to the rainbow bridge yesterday. That's why it is raining so much today. Me and Flopsy Girl have figured it out. All the stars in the sky that you can see, all those millions of them are all the buns at the bridge, and every time a really special bun joins them, they all cry with joy because they are all so glad to see him, and THAT'S where the rain comes from, it's all the tears of joy falling from the sky. I'm sure that when we next see a clear night sky, there will be an extra bright star up there, and that will be Jacob!

So in celebration of Jacob's life, and at the suggestion of Bramble's pack TODAY AND TOMORROW ARE OFFICIALLY DECLARED PARTY DAYS!!! Now where did the 2-foots leave that lemon cake...

Party and Jacob
Thank you for that Dandy and Flopsy - reading about the stars and the rain made us cry but they where happy tears - we also let our mum and dad see your entry but we made sure that they didn't see the address! Mum and dad both cried but then they smiled and said what a lovely way to remember all those buns that have gone to the Bridge. We are all going to look out at the stars tonight when all the 2foots have gone to bed - it will be nice and peaceful then. Maybe we will see Jacob's star and he might even wink at us - wouldn't that be wonderful?

I need your ideas
Jul. 2nd, 2004 at 7:04 AM

Following on from my journal entry yesterday about the Bunny Camp open day, I could really do with your help. I need some suggestions on what the 2-foots might be able to buy for us. I'm sure that some of the other 2-foots read my journal, and they pass on to our 2-foots what it says (as they are too thick to read it themselves), so I'm sure that they will get to hear about all your suggestions.

The other thing that would be nice, would be if anybun has any ideas on how we could raise money for Bunny Camp. I know that the 2-foots (who are not very intelligent, and find it difficult to think for themselves) always welcome suggestions and new ideas.

Now if everybun chants "toys and treats for Dandy & Flopsy" all day today, there's just a chance that the 2-foots might hear it and remember that they have to buy some for us on Sunday...

We have loads of toys, and our best ones are like building blocks which we can pick up and throw around; on top of Honeybunny is quite funny, also on top of our 2foots feet.

Humm, an idea to raise money .. how about a bunny race day? We have had a very, very small one in our bedroom. It is when us bunns have to jump over things. Yes, we know it seems hard work, but we had so much fun, and loads of treats.

Idea !
Give each of the two foots some scissors, a cardboard box, some masking tape etc and on a whistle blow they have a minute to make the best rabbit play house...? Rabbits get to judge the winner of course!

Either that or give them some materials and a count of 1 min to make a bunny costume and wear it?

Lemon cake
Due to the 2foots all saying that the lemon cake is great maybe you should get your 2foots to make one and then get people to guess the weight... a little something a go...

Also bets on which bun can eat the most greens in a time limit... As long as we are allowed to come...

It was very nice, but we've eaten it now. So this morning, the 2-foot with no fur on the top of his head gave us a replacement. It's not quite as big, but it's made entirely of HAY!... Nomnomnomnom...

Bunny Camp
Jul. 1st, 2004 at 6:56 AM

Well the countdown has now begun. On Sunday, it is the Bunny Camp Open Day, when you can send along your 2-foots to help to have a good time, and also to help to raise money for the buns. As most of you already know, I spent over a year at Bunny Camp before I came to live with my best girl Flopsy, and there's no doubt about it, if you have nowhere to go, then there is no better place. We are allowing our 2-foots to go on Sunday for a number of reasons:-

1. They have shown a definite improvement since they attended the training day at Ebony Eyes

2. THERE WILL BE TOYS ON SALE

3. The food has been quite good, and plentiful this week

4. THERE WILL BE TREATS ON SALE

5. They will be able to help the buns who are not as fortunate as we are

6. THEY WILL BE ABLE TO BUY US LOTS OF TOYS AND TREATS!!!!!

Of course we are not thinking of ourselves here, we will be left alone on Sunday, but we are prepared to suffer this hardship to help our friends at Bunny Camp... BUT THOSE 2-FOOTS HAD BETTER NOT COME HOME EMPTY HANDED!!!

Irresponsible 2-foot
Hello all,

I think it is wonderful for you to arrange all these outings for your 2-foots. Everybun knows that keeping them in the house all the time can really make them a bit loopy.

I really hope your pair does better than our girl once they're out. At last month's HRS picnic our 2-foot forgot the packet of papers that she gives people in exchange for toys and treats. All she came home with was a block of wood with a picture of a bun on it. Now she's using that block of wood to put that bunny's picture on the pieces of mail she sends out to pitiful 2-foots who hope somebun will adopt them. It is just shameful how daft our girl is.

Still peeved.

Dandy's Journal revisited

15 years ago today, Dandy was showing his lack of musical appreciation...






Music
Jun. 30th, 2004 at 7:08 AM

I think I am beginning to understand a bit more about this music stuff that the 2-foots insist on listening to. Apparently, there was nothing on the light up box worth watching last night (there very rarely is if you ask me), so one of the 2-foots put something on that he had recorded. It was called "Brian Wilson presents Pet Sounds" It was awful.

There were about a dozen 2-foots in a big room making a fearful noise, and literally hundreds of other 2-foots watching them, and cheering loudly every time the music stopped. Well I can tell you, I understood that perfectly, as I felt like cheering myself every time the music stopped, but for some reason I can't fathom at all, the dozen 2-foots who were making the music ignored the fact that all of the other 2-foots wanted them to stop, as each time the cheering subsided, they started off again!

I don't know which were the most stupid. The dozen 2-foots for not taking the hint, or the hundreds of others who did not just go away so that they did not have to listen. Maybe there was a clue in the title "Pet Sounds" Most 2-foots are somebuns pets, so maybe it refers to the noise they make?

If anybun has any ideas, I'd be glad to hear them

An Apology
Jun. 29th, 2004 at 7:02 AM

Dear All:

I wish to make a most heartfelt apology. All I wanted to do was to show you pictures about how we live, and what our 2-foots are like, but now it seems to have got out of hand. Both me, and Flopsy Girl had to think very carefully before we put pictures of our 2-foots up on the web (click on my pictures to see what we mean), as we know that they are not a pretty sight, but now it seems that others are putting up pictures of them too. The Hairy Mob have pictures of them on their website , and I'm just afraid that any unsuspecting bun who logs on by mistake will get a nasty shock when they see how horrific they look, so if our actions have caused any distress, we are deeply & truly sorry.
