Myxo Jab, what is this?!

We went outside the house today, in the carrier to a place called the Bets... oh no, hang on, Bobbin is telling me it's called the Vets! Well, whatever it's called it was like that place I went when we stayed with aunty Theo. They were very nice but they put something sharp under my skin, it hurt a bit! So I snuggled up really close to mummy!

Bobbin explained to me later that it's a vaccination, he says it's has nothing to do with vacuum cleaners, but it is a magic potion that stops a disease called Myxomatosis. The disease is very very harmful to us bunnies so it was very nice of our mummy to take us to get the potion, and I don't mind a tiny needle if it's good for me. Bobbin says it's carried on flying insects, like squashmitoes... now I understand why mummy squashed one the other day! *SLAP*, she went with her hands!

Bobbin says that we will be going back again soon for another potion against VHD, but he hasn't explained me what that is yet. I'm sure he will in time!

And when we got home mummy two-foot opened up a new BIG box of hay, it is the yummiest hay ever... and the box is very very big so I think we will be having yummy hay for a while. She says that it is Emerican hay, because they always have a good harvest. I will ask what it is called so that you can ask your two-footers to buy you it too! Yummers!

Bye now *waving*

It sounds like you were very brave for you injectshun!

It will keep you healthy so the little bit of pain is worth it.

Mmmmm, hay! Mama has put it on her birthdat list... is she going to eat it?!

My Daddy does the slapping hands for bugs too! But it gets me confused because he also does it when I'm being very naughty! Tee hee!

You are a brave bunny, Roo! We don't like jabs either.. luckily we don't need myxo and VHD vaccines where we live, those diseases are not a threat here.. and we hope it stays that way!

Emerican hay?? It sounds yummy.. we've never tried that, it's not available here. So pwease have a whole extra bunch on our behalf!
