Thinking spring thoughts

Thinking of Spring...   Back in 2010 ... I (Frankie Furter) found a nest of BABY BUNNIES... in the tomato vine section of MY garden...
        I   absolutely LOVED them.     I would lay with them during the day when their mom was out doing her thingy...     I took care of them fur her.

 At furst they were soooooo tiny that they didn't even have their eyes open...   they were SO little that mom had trouble seeing them when I furst told her about the nest.
 I watched over them for DAYS and DAYS..
 They got Bigger and bigger and since I never did hurt them... they were NOT afraid of me.. even when their eyes opened and they could see that I really was NOT their mom.   I know it is hard to tell beclaws they slept all tight together and stuffs butt there actually were THREE of them. 
When they started to hop around... they would Follow me...      I wanted them to be my furends furever... butt they were WILD bunnies and one day... they heard the Call of the Wild and they hopped far far away.     I was sad for DAYS and DAYS.    
      MAYBE THIS SPRING... another momma bunny will have her babies in my garden.   If she does... I hope ERNIE doesn't do anythingy to them.   And then I will have NEW furends to watch grow.           
PeeS....    I had OTHER Bunny furends that I will tell you about.   THEY had NAMES and everything.

PEE..S

I's been kind of missing in action cause of my inner nut actin up again. Da Momma was on da phoney wit dem all morning yesterday. They figured out that sometin in our area is interfering with the signal. They coming out tomorrow to sees if they can find it....probably squirrels with radar guns. Right now it takes like 87 hundred minutes just to load a page to look at it. So I's not lookin at too many pages.

Best wishes Molly

Lovable Lily said...

Wow Frankie, we never thought of you as a "surrogate Mother!" That is so totally pawsome :)

I bet those little babies were happy to have you around to protect them all of the time. That is a big responsibility on your part.

We just bet that you will be seeing some more babies around real soon.

Hugs,
Lily Belle & Muffin

Hey F-n-E!
Wow, those bunnie babies are so cute! Almost too cute to wanna bash...almost. BOL I'd have to use my strongest self control. Mom says maybe they ran off to find Hazel or Fiver. She says Mamaw will understand that. hmmm
Grr and Woof,

Dear Frankie,

We hope that you can keep Ernie away from any baby bunnies. We don't want him to confuse them with stuffies. YOU are such a sweet and gentle sole...

Casey said...

Oh wow, I don't think I could've had that much restraint. Even though they're babies, they're BUNNIES! Hmm. But maybe if they didn't run, I wouldn't think of chasing them.

Oh how cute, my mom is melting away now... She had two Bunnies as she was a child, they had names too: Michael Jackson and Andre Agassi (I know mom was a silly kid)

Noodles said...

BABY BUNNIES????? That is so cool! My Mommy #2 said she found a nest of baby bunnies when she was young. Most of the babies had died (I guess the mommy disappeared for some reason) but her friend saved 2 and they grew to be big bunnies AND lived to an old age.
Love Noodles

The Websters said...

You did NOTHING to them? NOTHING AT ALL?

Hmm...Mrs. Master wants me to ask you to teach me your ways.

I say. NO WAY JOSE.

Oh Frankie, what a wonderful dog you are to look after those babies and make sure they were safe. It brought a tear to Mum's eye reading that.
Thanks for your great advice about the cell phone internets, we will have to look into it.

We remember those bunnies.....and The Charcoals. Maybe one of those babies will remember it's safe home and have some more for you.

We'd probably chase them.
