Cute Overload :D
Doris, before I jump out and take a steam, can you add more Epsom salts to my Jacuzzi? And I’d love a beer, too. You know the kind I like—the one with extra hops. Tomorrow is going to be huge.

Look at the wet ears hanging over the side! :-)
Why do I not have a bun in a jacuzzi?
There is a really cute video entitled “puppy easter” that everyone should check out =D
I just… speechless. That’s what I am. I love his wet back feets, how they’re now sticking out, like you would if the bath is a little warm and you want to cool a bit off.
Oh, here’s a water-related rabbit joke:
Q. What do you get if you pour bath water down a rabbit hole?
A. Hot cross bunnies! (thought not in the case of this guy)
I still want to know why I don’t have a big bun eating a banana in my arms!
“I can’t go out tonight. I’m washing my hair.”
“I can’t go out tonight, I’m washing my HARE.”
Beer with “extra hops”–snort! Good thing I wasn’t drinking a beer when I read that, or it would have been all over the keyboard.
Maybe we’ll all get bunnies in jacuzzis for Easter… I can dream, right?!
That is a lot of hare in that bath, it’s going to clog the drain for sure. ;-)
Extra hops. Nice, very nice.
So are you saying if I get a jacuzzi bucket…the bun will come?
*hurries to the store*
Unh. Whenever I see posts like this, I can’t focus on the cute because I’m too preoccupied dreading the nuffer onslaught.
BF just told me that you’re never supposed to wash buns. They can’t keep themselves warm after-bath, and often keel over from hypothermia. I don’t know if it’s true or not, but caution peeps to look it up if they’re contemplating bun-washing. He looks as happy as that cat in a bath….
***RED ALERT*** TOE FLOOF
I don’t normally do this and apologize iffn it is violating any kind of site rules. Ricochet, the Surf Dog (his owner does charitable work and helps injured surfers and others in need, Ricochet is pretty amazing!) is having a contest. If they can get 100,000 likes on their FB page by the end of tonight, Iams will give 37,000 bowls of food to homeless pet shelters in the SoCal area. If you are so inclined, please visit to learn more and maybe “like” them for a good cause. https://www.facebook.com/SurfDogRicochet
(whoops, I meant “she” – Ricochet is a girl doggie!)
If you build it , he will come !(with a lttle help of course !)
Some bunnies actually LIKE to paddle around in a pool! (I’m sure there must be video somewhere. ) But you are right about getting them dry. They need a lot of toweling and then keep them out of drafts. If they aren’t scared of the blow dryer, that can speed up the drying process.
I “liked” but it might not count because I think I already liked before. Ricochet has been here before :D And it might be too late also. I hope not.
How do bunnies get to work?:
Beer will make your hare extra shiny and fluffy.
I have never had the urge to own a jacuzzi, but if there was one with a bun in it, I could be persuaded.
We knew what you meant, dear O
This bun ain’t just steaming, he’s CHILLED, man.
What’s to nuff (although if you’re a nuffer, you don’t need a reason……..)?.
I “liked”, but it depends on the time difference, wheth it was successful or not.
On the flip side, since this is obviously outdoors this may not be a “hot” bath but rather a “cold” or “cool” bath.
I knew some people who had a rabbitt which they kept in an outside hutch. They had to be careful when it got really hot in the summer otherwise bun-bun would die from the heat.
So this bunny may not be ‘jacuzi-ing’ but rather he may be more ‘chillin’ in the pool’ trying to keep cool on a hot day.
Thanks for being so pun-derstanding.;)
As long as he stays out of the jacuzzi on Jersey Shore, he should be fine. :D
Yep, dem feetz are cute!
The baff. Iz only for last resort (poopy butt).
Extra hops! Hahahahahaha!
Is it just me, or does he look a little uncomfortable? Anyway, he’s cute, and I love the wet feet.
I was told to never bathe a rabbit only ‘spot’ clean if necessary. Rabbits are very clean animals. I have a Californian breed (mostly white except for black ears, nose, tail and feet. She stays very clean on her own.
A rabbit is a prey animal. When seized by a predator many preys freeze. When turned on its back a rabbit may struggle initially but soon the muscles relax and the animal enters a trance-like state. Playing dead is a way for the rabbit to fool the predator! So when the rabbit looks relaxed and happy, actually, he is just waiting to escape. Please, do not turn your rabbit over on its back.
Politely submitted: There are bunnies who are so laid-back that they like to relax on their back! I’ve worked with and owned rabbits for more than 20 years, and any bun that doesn’t like that position will FIGHT, and keep fighting, to get out of it. If a rabbit _isn’t physically restrained_ and remains in that position, he/she’s cool with it. (See pics below, all from the House Rabbit Society website.)
Yes, actually, my vet turns my rabbit over on her back all the time. And some bunnies like to be held and cuddled this way (not mine, but some). This is also the usual position you put them in to trim their nails. Totally reasonable to have them on their back, as long as you turn them over carefully and support their delicate spines. It’s not a fear thing, usually — it can actually relax them.
However, bunnies is water is not really that common and shouldn’t be. As someone said earlier, they do need to be dried THOROUGHLY with towels and/or a blow dryer (ON LOW!) or can catch a chill and stay wet for a long time. I made the mistake of bathing my bun when we first got her and learned some valuable lessons about how bunnies are built. Hello sloppy sponge feet!
This isn’t to say some bunnies don’t like it — some do — every rabbit is different. :) Just make sure they’re not scared (you can tell they’re afraid by what we call “wild eyes”, if their nose is running — rabbits can’t cry so their nose often runs when they’re afraid, shaking and/or extremely rapid breathing). Also make sure they’re not immersed in chemicals like chlorine that might burn their very sensitive skin.
Just my two cents. But the cuteness is still mighty with this bun!
agrees wth above comments: a bun on her back is generally not comfortable and a bun on her back in water sounds like disaster ! If bun needs to be cool in summer heat- a frozen waterbottle to lay next to often works well. I am not trying to be debbie downer, but there are too many rabbit-in-water or rabbit-on-back posts here!
Here are some super cute rabbit poses that ARENt health threatening or terrifying:
Binkying, flopped on side, ear/face cleaning, sleeping in the litterbox/food dish, extreme disapproving close up, … i could go on.. my vote is for more of these!
