You must all think i've been in the witness protection program or something..... I've been m.i.a for quite a while!
I've really missed Rabbits Only, and have been itching to get back here to see what's been going on since I was away.

Lots of news where I'm at. We just bought a new house, and are in theprocess of the big move.... we are moving to a little town called "Thevillage of Bennet" (that's it's offical name!) and have been busygetting permits for our rabbits. We are only allowed to have up to 20with a permit, so I guess no more bringing home bunnies from thepetstore.

My flemish-holland cross, Amaretto is over 18 lbs! The town(ahem....er....'village') that we are moving too doesnt allow any"farm-type" animals over 20 lbs within the town's city limits, and theyconsider rabbits 'farm' animals. I'm just praying and praying that mybig girl doesnt get even bigger!

Carmelita had a litter of 5 little babes, and they all passed on within24 hours. They appeared to be peanuts (they had the typical peanut lookto them, and were pretty small).

Two rabbits I rescued from a horrible petstore here in Lincoln camehome infected with Ringworm, and I unknowingly came down with ittoo..... what fun that was!


Anyways, I guess that's all the new news I can think of rightnow........ I'll go check and see what I've been missing out on, and ifI can think of anything I'll keep you all posted.


Oh.... since I'm sticking this in the "portraits & paintings" thread I'll add a few more portraits.

This is one I did for my mom for her birthday yesterday:

And here's a few that I took to the Reptile Expo in Omaha last month:

and one of a parrot I did, which also went to the reptile expo, just sonot all my offerings there were reptile-related. I also took plenty ofbunny paintings too:

Gosh, I've missed you, Anne. :)

It's so good to see your paintings and haveyouback. I've sent you PMs. Please be sure to take alook.

Congratulations on your new home.

Amaretto is 18 lbs??? Good Lord! :shock:

So sorry to hear about Carmelita and her little ones. :(

Also really sorry to hear about the ringworm episode. I hope you all recovered and are back to full health.

Great to see you again - and thanks for adorning the forum with more of your gorgeous artwork.

Wow! Thanks so much for posting the picture! I knew that you recievedthem, and the additional prints, but I didnt get a chance to email backbecause we've been so swamped with the impending move. (Needless to sayI just checked my inbox here at at my two email addresses and i've gota LOT of replying to do!)

The frames you got for the paintings & prints looks so good withthe little name plaques on them! That is such a classy touch :)

The name plates look awesome! (Ihadn't finished putting them all on when I took the photo).The trophy place did a really nice job on them, although I was a littlesurprised at the cost of over $160 for 20 little metal plates:shock: The package was no bigger than my hand LOL

Thanks so much for your kind thoughts and words..... I just checked my p.m. box, and see that i've got some responding to do!

Amaretto is getting to be one BIG girl. She cant get any bigger,though, so i'm going to have to tell her that she better be donegrowing!!

Carmelita seems to be doing well even though the tragic passing of allof her little babes. She's such a wonderful bunny, and is such anamazing mother. The 24 hours that she had her babies she seemed to doteon them in the way only a loving mother could...... I am positive thatthere was no chance of their survival, and it is clear to me that shedid everything she could have.

The ringworm episode was NOT fun! I had a big splotch of ringworm righton my chest near the base of my neck, that could not be hidden fromview easily. It was quite a humbling experience...... everytime i hadto go out to the store i felt like people would think that i had thecreeping-crud (which i guess i did, didnt i?). Luckily, my ringwormcleared up in just a couple weeks..... I'm still treating Lickerish andKoKo, just because they had more instances of ringworm then I did, andI'm using a milder pet-variety treatment on them then I used on myself.

Thanks for the congratulations on the house..... I'm excited about it,but worried, too. I'm hoping we made the right decision in buying ahome, but the sticker shock is going to take some getting used to. Weare used to $500 rent payments, and now my mortgage payment is around$800...... { sigh }.

Lol.... isnt it amazing that such a little package could be worth thatmuch $$$!! That's how it goes, though...... I just recently orderedbusiness cards and paid about $100 for them, and when the postmandelivered them in a box the size of a pop-tart container I thought thatthere had to be a mistake!!!
