Sorry I've been away for a few days.  I came down with a virus while I was at work Monday and didn't turn the computer on at all Monday or Tuesday.  I'm a little hesitant about doing this one because Simone was sick the last time he blogged in late December.  I really hope that he is well by now.  If not, maybe this will cheer him up a little.  Simone is a black mini-lop bunny and is six-and-a-half years old.  He likes all the usual bunny things -- chewing on things he isn't supposed to chew on, as well as chewing on everything that he is allowed to chew on, eating all kinds of hay and herbs, hopping around the house.  His Mom once let the phone cord get too close to his cage and he chewed right through it.  His Mom was very glad that he didn't get electrocuted.  He shares his home with a pug named Tyler who has an unusual taste for hay.  Any time that Simome kicks some hay out of the cage, or a piece sticks out of the cage far enough for him to get at it, Tyler eats it.

                               Simone the bunny must guard his hay
                               From the pug he lives with, who plots all day
                                          How to snitch some food
                                          From the bun -- how rude!
                               Let's hope Simone gets to keep his hay.

Hope you (and Simone) are feeling better.

The Pugs I know will eat everything, so it may not be a matter of just a liking for hay.

This is so true, Karen Jo! Tyler plots all day to take away my food. He tries to eat my mustard greens too. Hrmph!
