This was my very first post on August 10, 2005.

"Hi,

I'm new and I've been trying to read everything on this forum, but Ithink it will take me awhile. I currently have threemini-rex's, one red doe called Wildfire, one harlequin buck namedNutmeg, and a broken black baby that I'm trying to sell so she doesn'thave a name yet.

I've had quite an episode in the last six months with my rabbits, I hada broken castor doe named Vanilla, but she got GI-Stasis soon aftergiving birth and died when the babies where 1 week old. Luckyfor me my friend had a mother with babies about the same age, so thekits where all fostered safely. It had taken my such a longtime to get Vanilla pregnant and I was heart broken that I didn't knowabout GI-Stasis untill my vet told me about it. I've beentrying to get into a bit of breeding so I had to find myself a newdoe. But I was really lucky and got Wildfire from a goodbreeder for only $30 with papers, as he was moving and needed todownsize is stock for the trip.

I've enjoyed everyones stories on this forum, and maybe I'll have a few of my own to tell soon, as Wildfire should have her first litter in about a week.

Dawn"

I only bred Wildfire twice, then got into rescue and I fostered for a year after that. Wildfire passed in May of 2007, and I still miss her to this day. My mom still has Nutmeg and he's doing well.

It seems like I've gone through such a learning an maturing process since joining this forum. I was quite un-educated when I joined up and influenced by what I now know where "back-yard-breeders" and I'm glad I found this forum to help straighten me out.

It will have been three years this August.

I remember when Wildfire died Dawn, that was the first high profile death after I arrived, that I remember, and I just remember your pain at the shock of it all. I never even knew Wildfire but she will always be one of the most special forum bunnies to me because of how much you loved her.

"My rabbit loves to chew and tear at cloth whenI'm not looking and I stop him whenever I do see it. Should I bestopping him? Is cloth an OK think for bunnies? And if cloth is OK/goodfor them what kinds should I avoid and which should I search out? Thankyou! ^.^"

My first post was about Dido in rainbow bridge just after my intro. It was looking for answers to him that led me to find this site :)

Oh my.....that is such a long story....and different for each of us. In my case - I was banned not once....but twice! Not sure that opening up that era of our lives will do anyone any good ~ so I think I'll leave that alone...ok?

But I will say how we became Sr. Mods......because of our charming personalities - our wit - our wonderful knowledge ~ and Pipp was drunk and desperate and we knocked her out - pinned "Sr. Mod" status on ourselves...and waited for her to wake up.

:woohoo

Seriously now....not sure exactly how it all happened...but it did.

I do love this forum....it has changed over the years - it has gotten bigger and while it used to feel like walking into a dinner party...it now feels like walking into a frat party...there are just so many new people and faces...so much activity, etc.

But you know what? The more I get to know the newer people (and I have a long long ways to go) - the more I love them....and the better it seems.

Wildfire's death stunned me....totally floored me. I took it really hard and cried for days - and I really didn't know Dawn that well...but it just really hurt.

Flashy - I do remember when you joined - it sure seems hard to believe its already been over a year.

Katie - I remember some of your first posts because we lived in Anchorage, AK for four years - so you caught my eye since you live there.

Polly - I'm ashamed to say I don't remember when you first joined - but we've chatted so much that it feels like you've been around a long time.....between your posts and talking about breeding, etc.

Its funny to look back over my three years on the forum and see how things have changed....and how they've stayed the same.

lol, beer bong anyone?

to me it seems more like a book club or a knitting group or something - you have the base core of awesome people who are always here, you have the butterflies who flitter in and out, and you have the new people coming in - everyone is always welcoming and happy to see you!

I remember when BunnyMommy's husband Danny died. Angela is no longer here on the forum, but I often wonder how she's doing these days.


The loss of Carl (Buck Jones) was also a terrible blow to the forum. Carl was highly intelligent, witty and a man of grace. I miss him here so much . . .

I have never had something affect me so deeply as Wildfire's death. I don't think I've ever cried that hard in my life, and for a good three hours. Then I was numb for months.

Peg, I never realized her death affected you so much as well. She was such a special bunny, and I don't think I'll ever find one like her again. I will miss our nightly ritual:




And she wasn't partial, she's snuggle with anyone:



Okay, thread jacking over...

Dawn - I truly mourned her - and her death really shook me to the core.

I think that the reason her death was so hard for me (and I didn't really know her) was that it was so sudden.

When I lost Ginger - I knew for weeks and months she was ill and I think I knew for days that she was preparing to leave me.

When you lost Wildfire...it seemed like - She was there and then Boom - she wasn't.

I had lost other rabbits somewhat suddenly...but not "heart bunnies".

In fact - for days I lived in fear of "Oh my God...what if I lost Tiny like that?"

Your rabbit was the first main "forum bunny" that passed away like that which I'd had any sort of connection to - other than Apollo and Nimue and I knew flemish had health risks simply due to their size, etc.

So yeah - it shook me up pretty badly.....

Aww, I like this thread! I wasn't here for many of you joining as I'm still fairly new, but I enjoyed reading all the nostalgia :)

My first post, not so long ago was this:

Hiya,


This is my first post on the board although have been lurking for a little while!



After a little bit of advice...

We've got two lovely female cross-breads - both 14 weeks old, both vaccinated and happily bonded - they were together when we got them and seem to really love each other :DObviously neither are neutered yet as they're both too young.

We're really, reallykeen to get a third rabbit - we're building a huuuggee home for them and they'll be living indoors long term. But we're not sure how sensible it is to introduce a third female into the mix when the existing two (Chalk and Mouse) are semmingly already bonded.

Anyone out there any experience of similar situations? Are we likely to run into trouble or upset the existing two? We've heard that it could make the two existing girls fight with each other if we introduce another bun?

We'd certainly not do it if any of the rabbits would be unhappy as a result, but now we have the two we just want to keep on going lol!

Thanks in advance, and by the way this site isgreat!

I've just had a bit of a laugh that I said 'neutered' when talking about female bunnies, and also that the end of that thread was me deciding that we'd wait a while before getting anymore buns, and I think by then we'd already seen Barney and Snowy, and 6 weeks later we got them! :D

So, not far back to go for me, but I hope I'll be here for 3 years to come, at least....

:hug:Jen xx


Edited to add: Oh, and that thread was why I was worried to tell you guys that we'd got Barney and Snowy lol... :embarrassed:

Great thread! Here's my first post from almost 3 years ago (April 30, 2005). Short and to the point... ;)

:)Hi, i'm new here. I have been interested in rabbits for awhile now, and i will likely adopt my first rabbit in late June. I figured this would be a great place to ask questions before i adopt.

My first post...boy, it feels like AGES ago!!

My first post was a few days after joining...so it was on the 21st of Feb. in 06.

You can read my first post here. It basically is about how to introduce buns to kitties. I had brought Maisie home just days before (you'll see that I'm still calling her "Bunny" at that point, because I didn't know her gender, and she had HATED her original name, Petunia!).

I thought I should put the link instead, because y'all know how long-winded I can be, and it was definitely a good representation of what to expect!

Anyway, how funny...I'd never thought to check that. Good thread, Peg! :)

Hi! My name is Alicia. I have four rabbits, and a few other animals.

Ringo Starr is a dwarf. Who has been very sick. He is a snuggle bun. http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l260/JzJade/Ringo/img026.jpg

Samantha Janeis a Flemish Giant. She is the queen of the bunch. http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l260/JzJade/Samantha%20Jane/384294-R1-13-12A.jpg

Connor Grayson is a dwarf. Who may have been a dictator in a past life. http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l260/JzJade/Connor/img032.jpg

Teresa Mekare is a Netherland Dwarf. She is the diva. Somtimes we call her Playmate of the month. http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l260/JzJade/Teresa/img037.jpg
