Trying to Create Christmas in July...

 WARNING! Long blog! Lots of news!              
 As a lot of you know, I was rescued from a dire situation. I was very, very close to being put to sleep in a homemade gas chamber along with 76 other bunnies. Simply because the breeder who owned us couldn't afford to feed us anymore. (We all know how hungry us bunnies can be!) Lucky for me, Gainesville Rabbit rescue in Florida (Where we were at.) stepped in and helped to raise money to pay the breeder and get us all out of there. Once that happened, it was BUNTASTIC news! We weren't going to be put to sleep after all, we had a second chance! But then there was another bump in the road, where in the world were all 76 of us going to go? 

 That's where Magic Happens Rescue, and several other bunny rescues stepped in. Thanks to all of their wonderful volunteers, we were transported, by car, to rescues throughout the South. 

 Lucky for me, I ended up in Louisiana! That's where the Slave saw me for the first time:

   Well the rest is history! After I was spayed I came home with the Slave and I've been here ever since!

  Why am I posting all of this (again)? 

 Because my Slave has been working on another "Bags for Bunnies" project for my pawesome rescue again! 

 This time we are doing "Christmas in July", and this will be the ONLY time we are doing it this year! If it weren't for Magic Happens Rescue, my Slave wouldn't have found me, and if my Slave hadn't found me, then I wouldn't have met all of you wonderful people and bunnies on Facebook, Bunspace, and here on my Blog! And then I wouldn't be here to make all of you wonderful people smile/laugh when I actually post funny/cute pictures!I don't know about you, but the Slave couldn't imagine life without my gorgeous chocolate face around! 
  The Slave loves putting together the bags for the adoptables, as they are all there waiting for their forever homes, and the bags help make the wait that much more enjoyable!  (We all know how us bunnies like our goodies!)

 As we all know, not all bunnies are lucky, like me, and are adopted quickly. Some bunnies wait for months, even years before finding their forever homes! Magic Happens lets all bunnies stay there, no "expiration date". 

 I've learned that people are always very giving around Christmas time...but not always throughout the year. Shelter bunnies usually get goodies around Christmas that will last them to January or sometimes even February! But they rarely get extra goodies any other time of the year, which is a shame.

  So, despite lack of donations, we have been VERY determined to make "Christmas in July" possible for the adoptables at Magic Happens Rescue!
     Me making sure that all 50 bags are lined up in proper order. 
(And I know what you're wondering...Did I jump into the middle of the stack of bags? Well the answer is YES!! It was really fun!)

 Doing test of the goodies (Honey Suckle vine wreaths and assorted dried herbs. All homegrown!)

Testing one of the 80 something toilet paper tubes that will be made into 80 toys for the adoptables! 

Here's me fussing at the Slave for not ordering ME a box of goodies! (Also for leaving all this delicious smelling stuff in MY ROOM! (So what if it's her's too?))

And THEN the Slave found a unfinished bag of MY Bunspace store apple twigs!!! Cha-CHING!

Well that's what I've been up to. I've been trying to taste test the box of goodies that the Slave was able to order for the adoptables...But she told me "NO!" 

 I REALLY think I need to taste test these!

 The Slave started putting together baggies today, and the results are: The Birch twigs she ordered made it into all the bags (Yay!), she needs MORE bunny bites for the toys, and she needs to continue to pick the blackberry bushes, honey suckle plants, and all the herbs CLEAN the rest of the month! Heehee 

 If anybun would like to donate towards creating a "Christmas in July" for the Magic Happens Adoptables, just hop by the Slave's clay bunnies website and purchase a "Treat Certificate". Just remember, you don't have to give a lot to make more than a few bunnies happy! Here's the link.

 If you'd like to see pictures from when we brought the adoptables goody bags this past December, you can actually view most of them here on my blog!   

  Well that's the update for now! Will be sure to keep everyone updated on the "Christmas in July" project and on what I've been doing!

  1. great recap a great job too!well done to your slave,But don't for get to enter Speedy's prize draw on his blog

  2. I've been making muscadine grape vines wreaths to sell to raise money for MHRR. My aunt has lots of these and honeysuckle vines in her yard. She asked me if the bunnies could eat honeysuckle vines. I said I didn't know. How did your Slave find out they were safe for you to eat?

    1. The Slave actually found out about them from a member on Bunspace who feeds their bunnies a strictly wild diet! (Willow D Wisp) I'm not sure if there is a specific kind you can feed, I know we have two different kinds (at least they look slightly different) so she's careful about which ones she picks. I've had lots of honey suckle vine/leaves and I've been fine!


We love hearing from our readers!
