A couple of weeks ago we spotted a pair of fat cute bunnies on our backyard. Our first impression was that was some kind of garden sculpture. But no - they were real bunnies. I decided to take them inside and send my daughter to ask neighbors, maybe someone cried already missing them. Bunnies were quite friendly, the smaller one - I guessed it was a girl - came to me to make introduction. The boy ran a little around then also was caught and brought inside.
Our guinea pig Cyrano was very agitated - he squeaked, he stood high in his pen and I took him out to make acquaintance with the bunnies.
Meanwhile our daughter found the owners. They asked her when she had found them - which day - they didn't even know that their bunnies had escaped!
One last glance - they are so, so, so cute! Yellow, big and round - like from kids book.
And off they go!
Next time they are in our backyard I'll keep them!!

I decided to change my buddy icon on flickr and tried different photos of my works. It's not easy to cut a picture 48x48 px and make it look good. Now I have an icon from this picture. I love making tiny flower fairies from the silk flowers! You see they are really small - they are sitting on some kind of a computer manual and have a pack of compacts behind them.

Our daughter was devastated by her pig's death. So we decided to go to the pet store and have a look. Just have a look.
And we returned with a new family member. He is quite an opposite of Afanasy - smooth, silky, quick and adventurous. When I saw his prominent curved nose in the profile I immediately said - Cyrano! And at hearing this everybody decided suddenly that we should take him.
For all of us it was a certainly comforting not to see the pig's den empty.
I haven't been writing here for a while. Our guinea pig Afanasy has passed away. Those who don't have pets can't understand how much grief brings the death of such a small creature. He didn't make it just a little to be 7 years old. It's a lot for a guinea pig! He traveled with us from country to country, sometimes by a separate plane, lived with us in the hotels, apartments, houses, always cheerful, always purring...
