If you’re going to be proved wrong, Moxie/Duncan had the perfect way to show more than one human that we just don’t know very much about rabbits. Last Thursday, September 3, while cleaning the rabbits little house, I discovered a little nest with itty bitty baby bunnies! Moxie/Duncan/Doxie is a girl after all!!! When the folks at Lightlife Foods decided to sponsor our new lop- eared mom, I bet they were not expecting this! One of the little ones looks amazingly like his father Oslo and the other survivor ( 2 little babies did not survive) is black with a little hint of white around its ears. You can see for yourself !
Just as many animals do, we humans communicate a lot of information with our eyes. Some among us, for one reason or another, do not pay attention to this valuable source of interpersonal information. By not looking at another’s eyes much of what is being ‘said’ is lost. Whether this failure to make eye contact is due to insufficient arousal in the brain, shyness, fear, etc. , the bottom line is that a chance for a more complete understanding with another person or animal can’t happen without it. In a group setting, failure to scan eyes and accompanying facial expressions can result in a real lack of understanding about what’s going on. Those who do not routinely read the eyes of others may feel disconnected, confused and alone. They can be shocked by things they could have seencoming. Being social creatures, this is a very real problem. It is very difficult to make and keep friends without tapping into this valuable source of communication.
Working with animals and observing their nonverbal behaviors can help develop the skills needed to notice and readeye language.
In watching animals communicate with each other, clients can witness the power of what is not being spoken. Learning something by watching others is called Observational Learning. Now how perfect is that!
Just checking to see if the awesome threesome were still willing to spend some time together, we reunited Wedowee with Oslo and Moxie.
( There are now 4 rabbits but the two babies were fast asleep in their parent’s house located in the corner of the room)
The video, produced by Ethan Meckle, is just too, too heartwarming! See for yourself.
Our little chick Wedowee was not accepted by her Mother so we decided to see if she
would like to spend some time with our two very sweet dwarf rabbits Oslo and Moxie.
You can’t begin to believe what happened!! You’ll love this inter-species get together!
Cole Daniel is one of our barn cats who is beloved by many; especially by Saryn Lauzon and her son Ethan who have decided to sponsor this lucky boy!
Cole Daniel’s life has taken a dramatic turn upward since being hit by a car and delivered to the Brattlebor Vet Clinic by the police. At the Brattleboro Clinic he was loving cared for by Drs. Boardman and Sorton as well as by the support staff. Saryn is one of the clinic’s support staff. It was Saryn who brought Cole Daniel’s situation to my attention. Her gentle but persistent reminders about this playful young cat who had yet to find a permanent home were initially brushed off thinking that eventually, someone would decide to take him, after all, we already have 4 barn cats. As time passed and no one had adopted him, Saryn’s persistence hit its mark. With broad smiles, Saryn and her son Ethan arrived with Cole Daniel in tow. As if arranging his placement here was not enough, they have taken their devotion to this quirky, friendly and playful little guy one step further by deciding to continue their support of his future well-being by sponsoring Cole Daniel Bolo!!!.
