Super excited!

The humans had a lovely relaxing beach break in Turkey the past week, where thankfully it was still around 25degrees centigrade all week so we could swim in the warm sea! (not so fun returning to 5degrees C and rain at 4am this morning when our plane touched down!) Hello Britain!

The most wonderful part of the trip was, discovering wild Turkish Rabbits living in our resort. They were gorgeous, and not at all like the wild rabbits that live in the UK. They were grey and white speckled - a bit like a cross between an English spot and a Dutch rabbit . Sadly we were floating in rubber rings in a water park when we saw them and didn't have a camera stashed in our swim suits!

Anyway, we are also excited, as Buttons is going this friday to meet Sapphire (who BTW has been renamed Hermione by the rescue, due to multiple Sapphires, and we think we might rename her too if she comes to live with us...)

Here is a lovely video I just took of Buttons. It seems a bit dull at first - hang on in there - the last 90 seconds is worth waiting for!


  1. Adorable! I love the way you talk to buttons, it would be an adorable cartoon show!

  2. Turkey sounds divine, even we are in California we've had an English Summer while the rest of the country baked.....so excited to hear about how the date goes, you must post results immediately. Best of Luck and all that. Buttons is so adorable, how will she resist?

  3. Awwwwww, he looked like he was going to completely flop over and take a nap for a bit. Mickey does the same thing: stretches out looking so sweet and cuddly, then pops back up the minute you try to pet him.

    Hope all goes well with the "first date". Don't forget to email me your address, btw--I still have a calendar to send to you. :)

  4. I'm so excited for Button's date! I think I am living vicariously through you... I would LOVE to introduce my rabbit to a friend! (Sadly, he is not fixed and not a candidate for fixing, so it just can't happen.) Anyway, I hope it goes well!

  5. i too love the rapport you have with Buttons, it is SO SWEET.as cute as he is what girl bunny could resist? hope all goes well
