Sneak Peek!

I had the wonderful opportunity to take photos of Flemish Giant Bunnies this weekend... little did I know how many furrie friends I would really get to meet! I just hope I remembered everyone! ; )

When I first drove up I was greeted by Sheba, a 12 year old Schipperke who loved being rubbed but did NOT like the big black beeping camera! I managed to get a couple shots of the cutie pie anyway:

Left... I love her cute little teeth! Right... talkin' to her daddy!

Then we went in the house where I met the sweetest long haired tuxedo kitty. I loved her fluffy boots on her back legs! Boots is 19 years old and a total love bug not to mention a model! She even has a beauty mark!

On to the reason for my visit... the Flemish Giant Bunnies. There are four in this family! Smokey is just over a year old. He's the only one who is full grown right now... and weighs in at 22 pounds! Smokey was allowed out in the yard but he never went far from the pen with his girls!

To give you a better idea of his size:

Nosey and Sugar are only four months old and have lots of growing to do. Their mom told me that they will be even bigger than Smokey eventually!

And the last of the FGB family is Shebit! Shebit got her name because Sheba has decided she is HER baby! Shebit is just under two months old and the most adorable black bunny ever! I liked to tease her that she had the 80's side ponytail going on... one of her ears flops over! She will most likely grow into her ears but I loved it!

After all that time with the bunnies, I was told there was yet another recently purchased calico bunny out in the barn. Of course I wanted to see her!

And guess what? That calico bunny is a new momma! She had just one baby four days earlier! Baby bun is soooo tiny and still has her eyes shut!

As I oogled the baby and her mom, the door behind me was opened to show off more babies! When I told my husband about them and he saw these photos, he wanted to know why I didn't stick one in my Shootsac to bring home!

And of course if you are going to have a dog and a cat and bunnies and chickens... you might as well throw in some horses for good measure!

This fella didn't belong to this family but he wanted some attention. I couldn't stop laughing at his baying barks so I ran over to the fence to give him a pat on the head!

EDIT: I was wrong! The beautiful basset BoBo IS part of the family. He is their son's dog... so their grand-doggie!

People think I live in a zoo with just the three dogs and two cats... but this family is AWESOME! I hope someday I can have as many animals around me as they do! : D

Lil Miss Bella Puppy

One of my former coworkers kept telling me he and his wife wanted a puppy... and now they finally have her! Bella is a shitzu/poodle mix and she is the cutest little furball with the tiniest little woof! I'm so excited that I just happen to live in the same neighborhood... I hope to see lots of Bella as she gets bigger!!

Look at her run! The grass is taller than her... hee hee!

She's so fluffy... even in the drizzle.

Later this week I hope to have more puppy fun up for you! Professor is a "Godfatha"!!

is tonight!!

I added it to my list of "Furrie Events" on the Furrie Fotographie website awhile back but if you didn't see it, here's a bit of information!

ARTunleashed is an annual fundraiser now in its fourth year! It benefits First Coast No More Homeless Pets (FCNMHP). The mission of FCNMHP is to eliminate the killing of dogs and cats in our community through free and low-cost spay and neuter programs. As more surgeries occur, the shelter and euthanasia rates decrease.

So tonight from 7-10pm, join animal lovers (and ME!) for Jacksonville's most fabulous juried art show and silent auction. A night of fun featuring fine art by local and regional artists, a unique animal inspired silent auction, fabulous food, cocktails, and live music! You can even place a bid on a gift certificate for a photo session and a free 8x10 courtesy of Furrie Fotographie!

ps. Event to be held at Bella Sera of Catering by Liz

Helping Hand

One of my friends sent me THIS link today. Apparently the Safe Animal Shelter in Middleburg (a no-kill facility!) is running out of food for their animals. According to the article, they are down to a two-week supply. I went to their website and saw that they prefer Purina Brand Dry Food, Dog Chow, Puppy Chow, Cat Chow & Kitten Chow. If anyone is interested in getting a few bags of food together, I'd be happy to make the drive and take it in. Just let me know!
