Bonding anniversary

Today is our 2-foots bonding anniversary. I have been doing some research, and 2-foot bonding is a really weird process.

Apparently, there is no marking of territory involved, they don't even go round chinning things, what they do is hold paws a lot, stick their tongues in each other's mouths, and when they are satisfied that a long enough time has passed, they dress up in really strange clothes, go into a really big burrow, kneel down, and sing some songs (but not bunny tunes, so what's the point).

Our 2-foots bonded 29 years ago, but were not adopted by buns until 6 years ago. There is no excuse for this, so we are sending them out to the pub this lunchtime for punishment.

I think there are different types of ceremony.

I wasn't here when my pet-humans bonded but I've seen the photos of their ceremony - it wasn't at all like your 2-foots.

Ours invited their outlaws-to-be along and mum, the bride-to-be drove along in her tin tent to an office where registers are kept. There were no songs, kneeling down or tongues in mouths, but casual clothes and a touch of humour within a very short ceremony, then Uncle J put a ring on one of mum's fingers on her right paw (the left fingers were broken).

All of this was followed by a picnic at a nearby castle, complete with paper plates and mum was the official photographer.

When I married my husband, I was just put in his cage and it was assumed romance would blossom, but it didn't. We hated each other!

I've checked this ring stuff out. The 2-foot with no fur on the top of his head has a ring that stays on his paw all the timw. The 2-foot with no fur on the top of her head has lots of different rings that she takes on and off.

I myself used to have a ring that was put on me when I was small, but I had it taken off when Millie became my bun-wife, so I don't know what the significance of the rings is, or what they have to do with the bonding process.

I know what the rings are for - they are put onto the bunnies who are bred to sit and look pretty or handsome in sheds and are taken to shows to sit in tiny cages to be stared at.

These bunnies are then removed from the cages, examined like a commodity and compared against a set specification. Those who match it most closely are given a rosette and a small amount of prize money which would pay for a few carrots and then they return home again.

Character, personality and temperament isn't considered - just whether or not they're considered perfect.

I know I'm perfect and don't need to go through this procedure to have it confirmed.

PS I think your female 2-foot DOES have fur on the top of her head!

Hoppy Anniversay to your 2 foots.

I've heard this bonding ceremony between 2 foots is called tieing the knot? but what has a knot got to do with it?

I asked mummy about this bonding/wedding thing. Apparently for her first bonding she went to a big hutch called a church and they had to sing songs, make vows (sort of like promises, but mummy apparently broke them anyway) and put rings on each other. then they paid for all their family and freinds to eat and drink and ended up broke.
Second time around she flew in a tin tube with wings to a place called Cyprus were she and Daddy got married in a five minute cery-mony, then went to the beach. She said the second wedding was much more fun and much cheaper too!

I still don't think I really understand.
Congratulations to your two foots.

Did they get back from the pub alright? Did they destroy your bowls? Do all two foots do this?

PS Snowball has offered me a Snowbowl. What a nice bun he is!

No, they did not destroy our bowls, but they fell asleep and snored a lot.

Hoppy Bonding Anniversary to your 2foots! Mine celery bray ted their 12th one two weeks ago. I wasn't there, but I've seen pictures and they went to a park (sensible!) and wore funny clothes and there were songs (some Beat Alls, but no Bunny Tunes) and food and binkying. They do still hold paws a lot and make funny noises with their lips. Odd creatures, these 2foots!

Happy Bonding to your two-foots!

We have never seen any pictures of our two-foots bonding ser- a-mony but we know they have been bonded for 29 years. Mom says she wants to visit The Grand Canyon or visit the Big Mouse to cel-e-brate number 30 next spring.

We don't understand any of this but we think it means we will be looked after by some sitters. humph!

anyway, congrats to your two-foots. It's good for two-foots to cel-e-brate sometimes.

Love, Hareum Bunns
