We made it back from a visit to NYC just in time for me to make it to the Colorado House Rabbit Society's Spring Fling in May. I helped to run the silent auction.
My donation to the auction was a Japanese bento lunch box. With bunnies, of course.
I threw in a little Happy Planet bag so it would be easy to carry...
...and also a copy of the Vegan Lunch Box cookbook, to go with it. I'm not sure how much it finally went for, but as I was getting ready to leave, it was up to $55! I paid $25 for the lot, so that ain't bad!
I decided not to bring Dee, it would have been nice for her to get a pedicure and you could even get your bunny an acupuncture or massage session.
But she really is elderly and I knew it wouldn't be her bag of chips. Oh well, there was plenty to see and do, games, food, interesting people and buns. Lots of buns.
Prizes full of bunny stuff!
Little Gertrude, one of the shelter buns, was just fine with not crossing the finish line.
No amount of treats or coaxing was going to change her mind either. Bunnies can be very stubborn little people when they feel like it.
I met a very outgoing rabbit named Cornflake. She was perfectly at home in the crowd, hopping around on her extendable leash. Her owner had to untangle her several times from human, chair, and table legs. Curiosity might have killed the cat, but it tangled the bunny.
It was a windy day, but sunny and cool out. Most of my time running the auction was spent making sure everything was weighted down and safe from wind. When I got home, you could feel the spring day ending like a long sigh, with the mountains' breath on your neck.
