good thing I don't wear a watch

this weekend ended up being CRAZY.
but good.
I often wonder if I'd fit as much in if I wore a watch, or if I'd be so busy trying to encourage activities to fit within a certain time frame, I'd miss most of the fun?

any way...
after much waiting... much sorrow... much MORE waiting... I'd like to introduce you to a "little" friend of mine...

PONTOUF! (yes, like the imaginary kangaroo)



Now, it's kinda hard to tell... but this little fluffy is going to be a giant. A Flemish giant... at only 5 weeks, Pontouf is....



Nearly the same size as Fynn Fynn (who's now 5 months!)



As you can see, Fynn isn't so sure about this new addition, but I think it's mostly just hormonal. He's going for the almighty snip at the vet next month, so then I can bond the two of them.. and they'll be bestest buddies for ever and ever :)

Pontouf is still really light (body weight), but I'm sure that in the past two nights s/he's gained several ounces.... despite being so huge, s/he's still pretty little to accurately guess gender... The guy thought he had 2 males and 1 female... but they all looked like males to me, so he might have made a mistake too...
anyway.. VERY exciting.. but... also some sad news. Pontouf's dad was killed by that same German shepherd last week that killed the last litter and the doe.

i must be missing something.... why would you try to raise rabbits if you own a german shepherd that is eating your rabbits. and i'm assuming your profits.
but i was always bad at math, and so it could just be me.
was there house surrounded by razor wire, and did they wear matching outfits?
