Hare Racing Moments!…Go Gert, Go!

You could cut the tension with a knife!

Who would have thought a small patch of grass would cause such a sensation! Todd has been working on the Tortoise garden since last Spring, planting and landscaping. Gerti (our desert tortoise) loves it! But then, so do all of the other critters in the yard! The lush little patch of grass is nirvana in the desert! Needless to say, I don’t think Gerti is real happy to share…. but then, how fierce can a tortoise really get to defend it’s territory?

She can be somewhat creative in her tactics!

But I think she may need to come up with another plan for the dirt monkeys….

She may just have to let Todd take care of that little problem!

The Cottontail Club…Where great bunns like to party!

Warning: This post may be slightly offensive…. It contains a ridiculous amount of corny puns…but what else can you do when you write about bunns?

Bunns, bunns everywhere! (Rabbits, that is…)We’ve had a bit of a hop-ulation explosion in the past couple of years…. I expect the next few weeks things are really going to be hoppin’ around Todd’s Backyard. Lot’s of bunns in the oven this spring and the arrival of many new little bunn-dles of joy.

The Cottontail Club is not particularly exclusive… members only require a ‘hip-hop’ vibe. So, you may not be surprised to see quail, doves and dirt monkeys join their early morning and afternoon parties.

A pair of hares…. double trouble! (Are cottontail rabbits considered hares???)

When they’re not grazing, playing or partying, the bunns like to find a rab-bit ‘o’ shade and hunker down.

Zoe would love to join the Cottontail Club, but she certainly lacks that ‘hip-hop’ vibe.

Besides… A crazy cat in the crowd, could put a little damper in their scamper!

OK! OK! …enough! Somebunny stop me now!!
