Our New Rabbits!

Hey neighbors!

We have a new hobby!  We are now raising Netherland Dwarf rabbits.  My older two used to raise and show rabbits years ago.  Now my younger two daughters and I are trying to raise some.  I don't know if they will show at all, that is something we will decide later.

We purchased an aluminum shed to house our rabbits so they will be warm during the winter and we will have a fan to help keep them cool in the summer.  We have both hanging and stacking cages.  Dwarf rabbits take less room which is one reason why we chose them.  We have had a difficult time finding purebred dwarfs and have had to travel two hours or more to find them.

We have been working on the shed the past week and finally finished it.  Today we finally got everyone moved in and settled into place.  We will be putting name tags on each cage in the next couple of days.

Today we also named them.  We decided to stick with food names.  We have three bucks, named Marmalade, Marshmallow, and Coconut.  The does are: Nutty Bar, Brownie, Little Smokie, Oreo, Jalapeno, Vanilla, Brown Sugar and PB for Peanut Butter.  I will try to keep you all updated on how this hobby proceeds.

I have included a few pictures.  Enjoy!

Used to raise rabbits as a kid and showed them. Loved that, great memories. We also had an indoor bunny, which I'm sure these could be. Really would like another one.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
