Poppy & Naboo have had a pretty chilled out day and here they are relaxing after their tea. Both seem quite happy lounging around and we have noticed that periods of activity seem to coincide with when food arrives. How strange but how typical bunny is that!

Naboo is now almost back to his normal self and today he and Poppy were out on the landing area playing which was nice to see. We are hoping to be able to reduce his medicines after today as his poos are pretty much back to normal. I am sure all you would be bunny owners know the importance of poo!

We have had a poorly bunny in the camp but he is getting better now but for all you Naboo fans and those of you who would want to wish him well we thought we would let you know how he is doing. Naboo has been through quite a bit lately and become a little stressed and this has resulted in him going off his food and we have been feeding him and giving him some gut motility and gut stimulant drugs to ensure he doesn't get a Gut Stasis. Poor little man was very poorly the day before yesterday but is brighter today and we are confident he will soon be back to his normal self. We will keep you posted on this. Poppy is her normal self and although she is paying him some attention, food is her main love and that must of course come first!

Naboo and Poppy have a new flatmate. Camomile, our French Lady, arrived yesterday and its certainly put a bee in Naboo's bonnet and he is bouncing around non stop. Poppy is wondering what on earth is going on and what all the fuss is about. We hope in time all bunnies will settle down but at the moment due to Camomile not being neutered its causing a few waves in the camp. She is out of sight but Naboo is picking up her smells and we quite often have this when un-neutered bunnies come to stay.
Generally, under normal circumstances, the two off them are much more settled now and will come running over to us for their food and treats, which is great.

Here is Camomile, a French Lop, who arrived at lunchtime. As you can see in the photos she likes to play football, and spends a lot of her time chasing it around her cage.
Her owner tells us she came from the same place from where we got Valentino. So, who knows, they be related!!!

We are proud to show you our new indoor boarding facilities which include the largest indoor pens that are available and these are positioned on shelving in order to give all bunnies boarding plenty of room and privacy from other boarders. We do not keep indoor boarders in their pen all the time they all have time out each day playing and exercising. We feel this is very important from a health point of view and also to ensure they do not become bored.
Just a small reminder for our regular clients and any new ones who may be thinking of using Blackberry Boarding. We have already taken some bookings for the Easter and Summer holiday periods and would advise anyone who has holiday plans to book as early as possible. We have limited space and really would not wish for you to be disappointed.

They have been coming into the shed at night, where the oil filled radiators at least keep the temperature slightly above freezing, when the outside temp has been down to -11 degrees!!!!
These two are going home on Sunday and we shall be sorry to see them go as they have been a joy to look after.
They have spent nearly all day out in the room and have been listening to Radio 4 so as to keep abreast of all the latest news and what is happening outside with the weather. I think they are very pleased to be indoor rabbits at this time of year.
They were allowed out on the landing for a run, but only Poppy really took advantage of this as Naboo is still busy exploring all the corners of the bedroom where they are living.

As you can see, they seem to have settled in with no fuss, and have spent the afternoon exploring the room and playing with their toys and tunnels.
We are quite sure that the bunnies will be fine with us and we will be taking plenty more photos and posting many more blog updates whilst they are in our care.

The snow looks so lovely and certainly makes it feel very wintry. Its such a shame that panic sets in and everyone tends to worry so much. This or course includes us and only today my trip to Tesco to re-stock on vegetables was a nightmare in itself. The supermarket was totally packed and quite amazingly the whole stock of carrots had been depleted. However, the organic carrots were still available so this week bunnies will be going organic. No celery and even the spring greens were in short supply. We had already been over to the farm this week to buy some kale and other veg so thankfully we are all stocked up. Unfortunately for the UK when we have a slight fall of snow our whole country does seem to come to a halt. Having spent many annual holidays ski-ing in Austria its quite incredible how other countries are so prepared for these weather conditions and I am quite sure that they would find it very amusing how much panic is caused when we have such a small quantity of snow. Since the snow the temperatures have risen. My main concern over the last few days has been the low temperatures and one morning it was -8 degrees. All our outdoor bunnies are in sheds overnight to ensure that they are warm and safe. Its quite amazing how they really don't seem to mind and here are some pics of two of our foster bunnies, Barley and Seymour playing in the snow one frosty morning.
