Wonderful Wednesday: Walking 3

Sometimes I need a free hand to be able to pick stuff up. I let them take care of each other. I thread Charles’ leash on Sofie’s, and then Sofie’s leash on Louise’s. As long as I have hold of Louise’s lead since she is the heaviest link in the chain, I find that this works. Sofie hates that Charles pulls on her, so usually, she will sit down and keep him in place (which she did right after I took this shot).

How do you control multiple dogs when you need a free hand?

Monday Mischief: No Bunnies

The Zoo had a fun time helping the not-so-little humans find the eggs that the not-so-young ones hid all around the yard. They say that it is getting harder each year because there are fewer eggs and they are hidden higher and lower.  Sofie decided that she was going to plant herself in the fern bed. We wanted to help eat all the candy but Mom said her usual, ‘NO,’ so we settled for some really yummy dog and cat treats. Though we do have bunnies living in the front yard, they were smart to stay away while we were hunting. We hope you had a festive weekend.

By the way, no one found the afikoman the night before, so they searched for that too.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

DogDaz News: The Truth About The Easter Rabbit

5 Facts about Rabbits from Smithsonian: Giant Rabbits

In celebration of the annual spring appearance of the Easter bunny on Sunday, Smithsonian Science offers these facts from Rabbits: The Animal Answer Guide, a new book by John Seidensticker, conservation scientist at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, and Susan Lumpkin, freelance writer.

1

Rabbits are not rodents, but lagomorphs (lag–uh-mawrf), a scientific term which means “hare-shaped.” Hares and pikas also are lagomorphs.

Scientists studying the bones of an extinct giant rabbit found on the Mediterranean island of Minorca estimate this prehistoric animal weighed as much as 31 pounds! The largest rabbits alive today– domestic breeds such as the Flemish giant–weigh 22 pounds at most.

3

Thanks to human introductions the European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) is found throughout Western Europe, Australia, parts of South America, North Africa and on more than 800 islands around the world. Today in Iberia, Spain, the European rabbit’s sole home for many thousands of years, it is threatened.

4

Archaeologists have evidence of people hunting rabbits in the south of France some 120,000 years ago. Scientists suspect even Neanderthals lived on diets made up largely of rabbits

5

A “never fail” Kansas folk remedy for reducing fever recommends making a strong tea from the dung of the wild jackrabbit and drinking it every half-hour.

Wishing sunshine to all who celebrate this weekend, be it Passover, Easter, or Earthday.

Wordy Wednesday: 2012 Purse Wars

Throw-Back April 2012:

Did I ever tell you that The Muffin Man (aka Muffy) liked to sleep in my pocketbook. It seemed to be a coveted item on the kitchen table by many cats at the Zoo. Well, Miss Constance Kitty did not like the idea that Muffy always seemed to get the best seat in the house. You can imagine what she had to say about it. In the end, Muffy, older, bigger, stronger, seems to get his way even though Connie could be very purrrsuasive.
