Mommy Louise is home

I got a neat surprise today, after running an errand (picking up our food), we went without my stroller. When we got home daddy rushed around getting my stroller ready to go on an outing, he packed the beach shelter, and blanket. Which I should have figured out meant that we were going to a beach, but I thought it was a little late for us to head over to our favorite beach.Well it turned out we did head to a beach, but we didn't meet up with my uncle Matthew.

Instead we met up with mommy Louise!!!!!! We found a nice quite spot on the beach (there was a volleyball tournament going on), daddy set up the shelter and the blanket. Then got my leash out so I could get down and play in the sand, I had other ideas, I went to the back of the shelter and flopped. I've got my priorities, napping is in top spot, and digging in the sand is somewhere down near the middle.
That's my new buddy beside me

My new stuffie makes a good pillow

Daddy and mommy Louise exchanged gifts, I've already showed you what we gave her (BTW she really loved it), so I'll just cover what mommy Louise got us. For me she got me a new stuffie, I didn't know what kind of animal it is, I've never seen one like it. Well here I'll show it to you.
I've never seen an animal like this

Whatever it is, it better get off my head.

Oh, daddy says that it's a baby seal

I'm still trying to figure out a name for him.
 Daddy told mommy Louise that we were going to try to find a suitable name, and when we did I give it my "seal" of approval (you may commence groaning), mommy Louise did, I just rolled my eyes at another of daddy's bad jokes.

Oh, mommy Louise also brought back things for daddy too, one is a glass figure of a crab (don't ask, it's from a seaside town in England), and a very pretty and very smooth rock. Neither of which I'm allowed to play with.

The pretty rock.
When we were done at the beach we walked over to a restaurant, and had dinner out on the patio.

Both me and daddy are super happy that she is back, and she is happy that she is back too. I don't ever want her to go away for that long again, I'd almost forgotten how much fun it is to have her around.

Daddy says it's time for bed, so I'd better close this blog so I can get my bedtime treat, mmmmmmmm papaya nommie.

One last boys weekend

Since mommy Louise is back, daddy and I decided to go on one last boys only adventure. Friday we went to Taste of the Danforth, which is a big Greek festival in Toronto, most of it is food, food and more food. It can get really crowded there, but more on that a little later.
Me and daddy were on the hunt for a present to replace the one daddy lost, we looked at every booth and table that didn't have food. We were about to give up when daddy spotted a gem store, they had bunches of pretty rocks for sale, at 50% off. So we looked, daddy was going to see if they had any pyrite (fools gold), no such luck. But we did find a very pretty piece of Rose Quartz, which is what we bought. Daddy was telling the sales lady that what we really wanted was something in the shape of a bunny, but all they had were rocks shaped like birds and fish. The lady said that they did indeed have bunny sculptures, and pointed them out to daddy. The one we settled on was made out of Agate.

It fits inside the box we got for the other present.

Until we meet up with Mommy Louise her present is going to stay here at home, this way we won't lose it again.

Now about the crowds, we went to the Taste of the Danforth again today, but I told daddy he wasn't in the right state of mind. We walked about half way through the festival when daddy started having a panic attack, I directed him to find the nearest help, which was Toronto Fire Fighters, they called over the medics, and they drove us to the subway station. I got daddy home safely, and kept him calm the whole ride home.

On Friday we found a neat place to get our picture taken, and it reminded us of mommy Louise. There is a new movie coming out in December this year, called Paddington, it's based on a series of stories about a bear in England.

Super Happy News

Okay, I know I haven't been posting much, but daddy has been dealing with a very bad migraine.
We went to a remembrance ceremony for the start of World War 1 last Thursday, it was okay but there was one minor annoance, they put the flags of the provinces right in front of us, but it was still good.
There are five parts to this video, watching this part should lead to the other 4 parts.

We have even bigger news, Mommy Louise is right now over the province of Quebec and should be landing here just after 7:30pm our time. We weren't expecting her until Friday, so the fact she is returning to us two days early is even better.
We should be getting some pictures she took with my stand in, you remember the teddy bear I got her, daddy suggested she take pictures of it in various locations where she was.
This bear
 Speaking of mommy Louise, we got a postcard from her last week.
This should say Titchwell
We didn't have any idea what the plants are in this picture, my granty came to the rescue, it is the English Fuzzybur, it only grows in marshland in southern England.

The back of the card.
Daddy was trying to arrange it so that we could meet mommy Louise at the airport, and have grandma and grandpa drive us back to her place. Daddy wasn't really looking forward to the 2 hour transit ride out there, but I told him we'd get to see mommy Louise sooner.
We might get to see her this weekend, and I am going to be so happy, I've been wanting a mommy hug for so long. We will get to talk to her, she's going to call us tomorrow or Friday.

waiting, why must I always wait

In 12 days from this post my mommy Louise returns to me, and daddy to I guess.

On Friday daddy was out shopping with Hopper (you know, the little brat that daddy rescued, AKA Luke Skyhopper). Well he met up with a nice lady at the grocery store and they were talking about, who else, Hopper. But it was the ladies accent that made daddy sad, you see the lady grew up in London, England, so she had a British accent. Which reminded daddy of mommy Louise, and that she hadn't been here for 2 weeks. Had I been there I could have told daddy that we would be seeing her again in another 2 weeks, she returns on August 8th. It also made him sad because he lost the present we got for her as a welcome home gift. When we were at the Big On Bloor festival me and daddy found the perfect gift, it was a small glass bunny.
The welcome home present
It was perfect, the only thing it needed was a proper box to put it in, so the next day me and daddy went out to get a box. I told daddy not to bring it, but he said he needed it to get the right size box. Well, somewhere between the store where we got the box, and home daddy lost it. And because it was in a small plastic bag, and wrapped in paper, the only thing that would distinguish it from trash was a blue ribbon tied in a bow keeping the bag closed. There isn't even a remote chance that someone found it and turned it in to a lost and found. There is a bright spot to this, there are still two more festivals coming up where we might find something similar.

As for me and daddy, we are still in the temporary apartment, but we've borrowed an air conditioner, so we at least are somewhat comfortable. Although daddy is complaining about sleeping on an air mattress on the floor, I don't really see what he's complaining about, it's super comfy.
Daddy's bed (my bed now)

I don't know what daddy is complaining about

Dreaming of my own air mattress

I wonder if they make air mattresses in bunny size?
And I must say, the air mattress is way more comfy then the floor, case in point.
I can't seem to get comfortable on a bare floor.
Daddy and grandma both told me that they don't make air mattresses in bunny size, so I shouldn't get used to taking naps on it, darn it.

We went to a music festival called the Beaches Jazz festival on Friday, we talked to a lot of people, and told them about this blog, and handed out some of the business cards. We also told the ones who said they have bunnies about Bunfest, which is coming up at the end of September.
We even got to take a picture with another company spokes animal, this one was from the car company KIA. KIA has, for some reason, decided to have three hamsters dressed in tuxedos be their spokes animals, yeah, I don't get it either.
I think a bunny in a tux would be way better.
Daddy also found me a new t-shirt in a dollar store, this one suits me to a T.

It tells everyone who is really in charge.
As of right now, mommy Louise returns in exactly 12 days and 30 minutes.

Mommy has gone away

Yep, by daddy's calculations mommy Louise should be in England by now, which means we should be getting either an email or a phone call from her shortly. She took the bear I gave her in her carry on, so that she could take pictures of it in the plane. Daddy even found out what kind of plane she was flying in, it's a 747-400 Jumbo jet.
Like this one
This is what the seating might look like, we're not sure if it is.
Mommy Louise had to fly to Amsterdam first, then fly on a different plane to get to England. She flew on a Fokker 70.
This is a Fokker 70
At least we think this is the kind of plane she took. Anyway, daddy checked and both planes landed safely.

On to other things now, daddy took little Skyhopper out on his first big adventure yesterday. They went grocery shopping, daddy carried him all the way there and all the way back. Which meant they didn't use MY stroller, so I don't have to go and rechin everything again. Ooh, that's a good word, hang on a sec...... Okay I added rechin to the Bunny Dictionary. Now where was I? Oh yeah, Hopper as daddy calls him (I call him little pest), found a great place to ride. On daddy's combat vest there is a pouch for putting a canteen in, well, daddy found that it also fits his tablet, and small bunnies.
Hopper hiding in the pouch
Daddy's pouch has rabbit ears.
Daddy says that Hopper was a very good boy, and didn't get scared nearly as much as he thought he would. Daddy says that he is training Hopper to take my place when that day should come, he doesn't really like to think of things like that, but he knows that I won't be around forever. So I guess daddy having a substitute for when I'm not feeling well is okay, just so long as they DON'T use MY stroller when they go out.
See that cilantro there, Hopper ate all of it in one go.

Daddy gave him two more pieces of cilantro and he gobbled those up too.
 Yes, I think Hopper is going to grow up to be like me, very cuddly, smart, very brave, and super cute (although not nearly as soft as I am).

Daddy says that we might go with uncle Matthew over to our favorite beach on the weekend, which will be fun, I haven't seen uncle Matthew since Bunfest last year. Daddy says we need a boys day out at the beach, so as uncle Matthew puts it, we can ogle the babes (rolling my eyes). Daddy had better not "ogle" any babes, or I'll tattle on him to mommy Louise.

Mommy is going away

Mommy Louise is going to England on Tuesday, and I won't get to see her. Mommy Louise and daddy both assured me that she'd only be gone for a month, and then she would be back to do all sorts of fun stuff with us. I was a little unsure of that, so I got daddy to help me get a going away present for her.
This is the teddy bear I got her for her trip

This is the collar with my name engraved on it.

We didn't know if this was for England, it could have been from Outer Mongolia for all we knew.

I'm giving the bear his finally instructions for his trip
 I told him that he was going to be my temporary replacement, and he has to protect mommy Louise while she is in England.
Sunday I presented her with her body guard teddy, she loved it.
This is mommy Louise with her new body guard teddy.

Now Saturday was a boys day, me and daddy went to see the Argos home opener, this year it was against the Saskatchewan Roughriders. And this year was really cool, they had the roof open.
Warm ups on the field with the roof open



This was our seat number

I wear my Argos pride on my back.
The Argos beat the pads off the Roughriders 48 - 15.

Oh, and one more thing before I end this. When we met up with mommy Louise on Sunday she got me and daddy presents, I got a new stuffie, and daddy got 6 new DVD movies.
First my new stuffie.
My new stuffie, it's R2D2

And he talks too
The 6 movies daddy got are Men In Black 1 and 2 (which completes his MiB collection, he's already got MiB 3), he also got Battlestar Galactica, Flash Gordon, Dune and The Last Starfighter. I think my present is way more fun. Daddy says we will be able to talk to mommy Louise when she is England, and actually see her talking to us at the same time. Daddy called it Skite, I think, it uses a webcam so that the other person can see you, and you can see them in real time.

Happy things and bad things

Okay, first the happy news...... I have a new baby brother. Daddy rescued him yesterday afternoon, we think he is around 1 month old, and just the cutest little ball of fluff (not as cute as me though).
Such a cute little lop

He's got a cool racing stripe

Cuddling with daddy
Oh, his name is Luke Skyhopper. I think daddy has gone way to far with this Star Wars thing.

Now, on to the bad thing, last night we had a major flood in our apartment, what it meant was that we had to use our evacuation plan that we had put in place after the ice storm last year. Our plan sort of went off the rails right away, my granty is dealing with bedbugs, so we couldn't go there. My two human cousins and their parents are staying with my grandma and grandpa, so WAY to crowded there. There were only two more options, one was to sleep out on the street, not a good option. So that left mommy Louise, thankfully she came through for us again. She paid for a taxi down to her place, and then found us a hotel for us to stay in overnight, and paid for it too.
By the time we had gotten checked in and up to our room, daddy wasn't feeling well. Mommy Louise got me settled in, then tended to daddy. He was going into heat stroke, she stayed for a few hours and nursed daddy back to health.
This morning daddy got me my medications, then let me explore the bed for a bit. Until I decided to jump down and explore the floor, for which I ended up back in my playpen.

Last night we could see the CN Tower

Checking out the bed

Lots of room on this one

Of course it's the first bed I ever got to explore.

That's the head board

Wonder what's over here.
Daddy doesn't know where we are going to stay tonight, our apartment is unlivable. The rest of the gang are fine, for now, but there isn't much else daddy can do. I'm afraid he is going to have a panic attack, and won't recover from it this time.
