The Dog – Wait, No – Bunny Blog: Mischief

DSC_0780

Morgan: Why hello there, peoples of the universe! It’s Morgan here with a VERY special edition of The Dog Blog – this time featuring not a dog, but a bunny! Everyone, please welcome Mischief, Tessa’s rabbit. We’re making AGIA history here, folks!

Mischief: Hello, everybody. *twitch twitch*

Morgan: So, Mischief, you’ve quite new to the family, huh?

Mischief: That’s right. I’ve been here for a couple weeks now.

Morgan: And have you liked it here so far?

Mischief: Yes, everybody is so friendly. The girls – well, most of the girls – are gentle and always handle me with respect.

Morgan: You said most of the girls? Which girls aren’t gentle with you?

Mischief: Well, I don’t want to name names, but . . . *cough* Lindsey *cough cough*

Morgan: I see . . . I’ll have to talk with her about that . . . moving on . . . I thought you would be able to bring some new ideas to the table, since most of the animals I interview are dogs. Now, I love dogs, but all they want to do is play fetch. What activities do you most enjoy?

Mischief: Cuddling is great! Tessa is so nice about giving me lots of pets and attention. I also like it when she lets me out of my cage so I can run around. It’s so nice to stretch my legs and do binkies.

Morgan: Binkies? What are those?

Mischief: Here, take a look . . .

Mischief: They’re great for releasing pent-up energy after being in a cage.

Morgan: So to you, is your cage a jail cell, or a home?

Mischief: Definitely a home. Sometimes, I’ll hop right back into my cage because I’m not in the mood to play – I’d rather relax in my house. Besides, Tessa keeps it so clean, why would I not want to be inside?

Morgan: Right? Now, Mischief, we got a lot of comments on our post about your great escape. Can you tell us what led you to jump out of your cage and attempt to run into the road?

Mischief: What can I say? Freedom . . . not that I don’t love this family, though. I just saw some yummy dandelions, and I just had to go.

Morgan: *chuckles* I get it. What about your favorite foods – do you have any of those?

Mischief: Oh, all sorts of veggies. Carrots are my favorite, of course, but those are so high in sugar, so I only get them once a week. Instead, Tessa feeds me celery, dandelions, and bell peppers.

Morgan: Is all you eat vegetables?

Mischief: Oh, no. Timothy hay is extremely important for roughage in bunny diets. In fact, 80% of a bunny diet should be hay. 10% is veggies, and the last 10% is hay-based food pellets.

Morgan: Fascinating! One last question: are you friends with Moe, AGs in Alaska’s rabbit?

Mischief: We’ve hung out a few times, and let me just say that that rabbit has . . . a lot of personality. I’m sure we’ll get to be good friends, though.

Morgan: I sure hope so. Thank you so much, Mischief, for joining me today!

Mischief: Thanks for having me. I’m very excited to be a part of this family.

Morgan: That’s all for now, folks! Let us know in the comments which pet you would like to see featured next!

How Mischief Got His Name (A Photostory)

Hey guys! Sorry for no post last week – all the posts for the weeks before that were scheduled (and tbh that’s probably the only reason posts from me actually appeared in your dratted Reader).

I have a fun photostory for you today, featuring Tessa and Morgan (and Emily!), who you guys said you wanted to see more of on my poll. Now, without further ado . . . onto the photostory!

DSC_0719

“Mmm, delicious,” I say aloud and I pick a ripe pea from a branch in our garden. The early September sun beats down on my back, reminding me of the great weather we’re having. My sisters swear that snow is just around the corner, though.

DSC_0725

The leaves rustle and I turn my head to see Morgan and Emily approaching. They’re both sporting big smiles – which is unusual for Emily, the quietest of all the girls.

“Hey Tessa! What’s up?” Morgan asks with a wave.

“Nothin’ much,” I reply. “You?”

DSC_0730

“Actually, Emily and I have something we’d like to show you. Come on, follow us!”

DSC_0731

I stand up, curious to see what Morgan is so excited about.

DSC_0736

We follow Emily out of the gate and turn the corner.

DSC_0738

Morgan stops and stands beside a blue cage. “And . . . here we are.”

DSC_0739

“Surprise!” Emily cries. “Open it, Tessa.”

DSC_0741

Knowing these two sisters’ personalities, there’s probably not something like a snake or tarantula inside the cage, so I grab the handle and pull it open.

“Oh. My. Goodness!”

DSC_0742

Inside the cage is the sweetest, most adorable bunny I’ve ever seen. He’s fluffy and white with big brown eyes and a twitchy pink nose.

DSC_0743

“Aww!” I cry. “He’s precious!”

DSC_0744

“And he’s all yours,” Morgan informs me. “You know, since you’re not really a dog person.  Well, yet, anyway.”

“Go on, pick him up,” Emily urges.

DSC_0746

I ben down and try to scoop the bunny out of his cage. That’s not exactly what happens.

DSC_0747

The bunny hops out of his cage and sniffs the air eagerly.

“Noooooo!” Emily shrieks, which is the loudest sound I’ve ever heard her make.

DSC_0749

“GET THAT BUNNY!”

DSC_0756

The fluffy white creature jumps over the ledge bordering our garden. He’s faster than I thought!

DSC_0757

“You get back here, mister!” Emily commands. The bunny, not having a full command of the English language (or even partial command), makes no move to listen to her.

DSC_0759

“Don’t scare him!” Morgan says. “Or we’ll never get him back!”

DSC_0766

The little bunny continues his journey across our front yard. He hops off the sidewalk and into the street. I gasp. There’s a car coming from a block away!

DSC_0767

“We can’t let him get into the street!” I cry. “Come on guys, help me!”

DSC_0768

All of a sudden, Emily jumps in front of the bunny.

DSC_0772

“That’s enough of that, young man,” Emily says softly, scooping up the rabbit. “Now, back to your cage.”

DSC_0773

Emily carries the litle lagomorph to his hutch and sets him inside carefully.

DSC_0774

“Phew!” I breathe. “That was a close one.”

DSC_0776

“No kidding,” Morgan agrees, plopping down onto the grass. She’s panting hard and her hair is a mess.

DSC_0778

“So what’s his name?” I ask. “A cute little guy like this needs a good name.”

DSC_0745

“Whatever you want,” Emily tells me. “He’s all yours, anyway.”

DSC_0779

Suddenly, the perfect name pops into my head. “I have it!”

DSC_0780

“Guys, this is . . .”

DSC_0781

“Mischief.”

-End of photostory-

Ta-da! There you are. Tessa now has a pet. Fun fact – I actually picked Mischief out in Dallas at the AG store, but I haven’t gotten the chance to actually put him in a phostory since then.

Catch you guys next week!

What do you think of Mischief? What’s your favorite AG pet? Do you like bunnies?

PUPPIES!!!!!!!!!

Everybody, please welcome to the family . . .

 

Callie and Jaxon!!!!!

We acquired our new furry friends on June 11th, so it’s been a month. The puppies are five months old and are from the same litter.

 

First up, we have Callie.
DSC_0942
Callie is my puppy, and she is a purebred Chihuahua. She has a cute little underbite and a very sassy personality. She’s possibly the runt of the litter, but she is definitely in charge when it comes to her brother. 🙂
(Don’t tell Archie, but she’s totally touching him. See the black fur?)
Next is Jaxon.
DSC_1020 2
He belongs to my brother, and he is a Chihuahua mix – possibly Dauschund or Jack Russel Terrier. He’s extremely playful and IMPOSSIBLE to housebreak. (Oh yeah, did I mention they’re NOT HOUSEBROKEN???)
That’s it for now . . . oh yeah. Quick announcement. My posting schedule is going to be sort of wonky this summer, with the extra free time I’ll have and then crazy busy weeks, so expect two posts a week – but they may not necessarily be on a Monday and a Thursday.
I’ll see y’all later this week!

What do you think of the new puppies? Which one is cuter? YES YOU MUST MAKE A DECISION. Kidding. 🙂
