Not the BunnyCam – Just a Regular Camera

Dad’s a big dope. He forgot to turn on the bunnycam today. Not that I would notice, since lately I’ve been spending my days out in our area, instead of in dad’s office (I need a break from Gus constantly trying to get me to groom him). But Gus told me about it. So, if you were looking forward to watching the bunnycam and watching Gus sleep all day long, blame dad. It’s all his fault.

Then, at the end of the day, he came out and cleaned my area – and I was not happy! I worked really hard to mess it up just the way I like it! How dare he clean it all up!

Just to show dad how mad I was, I didn’t even leave the area as he cleaned. I stayed there – even when he ran the loud vacuum cleaner. I think he knows I wasn’t happy, because he finished quickly and put out a big bowl of nice, fresh hay. (I waited until he wasn’t looking to come over and eat it, of course – can’t have him thinking that I appreciate what he did!)

Then dad came out and took some pictures – but he took them from the same spot he normally sits to give us treats. So, naturally, I came up for a look.

betsy is suspicious of the cameraDo you have any treats, dad?

betsy wants to know if there are any treats forthcomingPlease tell me you’ve got some treats there.

betsy doesn't think there are any treatsBut dad tricked me. He had no treats – just his silly beeping camera.

one last check for treatsI am not amused, dad.

betsy keeps a close eye out in case she missed some treatsI was not happy. Not happy at all.

betsy sits down disappointed there are no treatsTricking me like that is not very nice.

the look of disapproval from betsyHow could you trick me like that?

betsy says how could you not give me treatsI told dad I was not happy with him. Then I decided the best way to teach him a lesson was to ignore him.

betsy doing some grooming

Ignore him and spend some time grooming myself, of course.

betsy does not appreciate the flashBut then dad fired that silly flash thing on his camera. I don’t appreciate the flash in my eyes, dad!!

gus does not appreciate the flash eitherGus doesn’t like the flash either, dad. Why don’t you turn it off?

more betsy groomingThat’s better. Now stay there while I ignore you.

ultimate disapprovalThen, to finish things off, I flopped down and gave him my most intense stare of disapproval.

He left just after that. I think he learned his lesson.

    Whew – that was a long read and see for a bunch a bunns such as ourselves.

    Stoopid you-know-who here forgot to take a cam look early today – since we live so far west – anyway, so I guess he did not miss anything by missing anything anyway. He is still stoopid.

    Betsy – it strikes us that actually you are not real! Mr. Stoopid there is actually photoshopping Chico’s body with Lucky’s head and calling it Betsy. You think???

    Lovely set of photos, you have a wonderful look of disapproval, that would certainly stop me in my tracks if I were trying to take your photo

    Mischief Night may come early to your household by the (disapproving bun) looks of it.

    Sunday here in the Pacific NW – 4:20 pm … Mr. Know-it-all has looked three or four times today and only sees the back of the chair and two toys. Must be a looooong nap somewhere else!

    The buns are hiding today in the livingroom, the little buggers. I guess they take Sunday off??

    Works for us – we’ll check in Monday – unless we take that off too!

    Hey Gus – I peeked in and saw you attempting to nap today. You still had one ear up, so I suppose you were still somewhat in supervisory mode. You are a very handsome bun! Goose had the same idea and is napping behind our big circle chair.

    OK! We saw you tidy yourself up, smile pretty and then …. flop! I guess your day is over for awhile. Thanks for the performance. Now, for Betsy!

    The Bunns are right! We very much enjoy watching Gus (evening time here in Sweden), but now we want to see Betsy!
    P.S. Gus – You are hiding behind the chair too much, sometimes we can only see your behind.

    Dad!! How could you!!! First messing up things in Betsy & Gus’s area, then you have the audacity to follow that stunt up by flashing and beeping the flashy beepy thing and not even offering treats?? Someone is going to pee in your shoe if you don’t watch it.
