Photo Hunt: Hanging (Out)

It gets pretty hot here in the summer and you can often see our rabbits, Ben and Daisy hanging out in the shade. They have the free run of our garden and the neighbourhood, although Ben is a bit fat to slip under the gate.

They are not so visible at the moment since our new terrier finds them a great source of amusement. I had to rescue Ben from getting stuck in the fence after being chased around the garden and finding that his escape route was not wide enough. All entertainment for Rufus, exercise and annoyance for Ben and Daisy. I hope that Rufus has calmed down by the time the warm weather rolls around again.

Your rabbits look like they are getting some relief from hanging in the shade.

Poor things, but Rufus is just doing what comes naturally you know. How do rabbits keep cool? They don't pant I guess so maybe they give off heat through their ears? How ignorant can you get?

Aw, what cute bunnies! My sister and I had rabbits when we were kids and I bet your kids enjoy having them, too.

Happy bunnies.

Cute bunnies. They are lucky they have a yard to roam in instead of being cooped up in a cage. Hopefully Rufus will eventually get bored. Thanks for stopping by to see my hanging post :)

We've taken in a couple of stray rabbits here over the years - the cats enjoyed them. Snuggling up to them and washing them.

hehe..the rabbits looks like they're enjoying the "hanging" out time but you kinda sense they're on a "lookout" mode too...

Pearl - happy weekend
