Head Bunny Update

If there is one thing in the universe my rabbit loves more than life, carrots, and a good drink of water, it's brussels sprouts. I gave him one a couple of months ago and he literally tried to stuff the whole thing in his mouth. It was hilarious.

So, the other day, Joe and I were at the store to get stuff to make dinner and I found a stalk of brussels sprouts. I didn't even know they grew on stalks. But here is how they grow:



So, I bought a stalk. And I brought them home, and whacked off a piece and gave it to TomTom. He went absolutely bananas. I went in a couple of hours later, and not only did he eat the sprouts, he ate the stalk! I gave him another piece last night, and it's gone this morning. And that's not all...

Suddenly, he's turned into SuperBunny. For a while, it took an act of Congress to get him out of his room. Now, I open the door in there, and the only way to keep him in is to throw him some sprouts. Otherwise, he runs like he's being chased by Glenn Close, hurls himself up onto the chair in the General's office, and proceeds to get a running leap and launch himself through the air into the hallway. I'm going to have to set up the video camera and try to get some footage--it's extraordinary. I want to get him a theme song.

He could take on Bionic Buns, no problem.


So, if you have a lethargic rabbit, try sprouts. They seem to like 'em.

Shhhhh!! Don't tell anyone that Brussel sprouts actually contain a stimulant - that's why they make them taste so bad.

It's generic name is "bunnylin speedupatate".

Oh, and my word verification is "zshro". I imagine that is what your bunny sounds like as he zips past---
"zzzZZZZZZSHROOOOOOOoooooo!!!"

I'm glad someone like brussel sprouts. Personally I think they taste like feet. TomTom can have mine.
