Pear Sculpting



It's been just over a year since Bunny went to the rainbow bridge. I have quite a few old videos of him, these ones were taken with my phone camera. It shows Bunny working on a pear sculpture. See how he marks it first before he starts sculpting! Pears were his favorite fruit, he'd take about 3 days to finish sculpting. The exposed pear flesh did not turn brown, his bunny licks must have had special anti-oxidants!

Really? The exposed pear flesh didn't turn brown? That's amazing. I thought you couldn't keep bunnies in Australia.

Yeah maybe bunny licks could be better than Botox as an anti ageing treatment?

I think bunnies are banned in the state of Queensland only. We live way down under in Victoria where bunnies are allowed :D

I think gerbils, hamsters and chinchillas are banned here though :(

Why would hamsters & chinchillas be banned?
I don't think they're capable of destroying crops or whatnot.

We can't introduce hamsters, chinchillas etc here because if they were to escape into the wild, they could threaten our unique wildlife by out-breeding them, spreading disease and competing with them for food. We have very strict quarantine laws that restrict any kind of animal being brought in. Wild rabbits are actually considered as a pest here. But they were introduced a looong time ago. I think foxes were then brought in to control the rabbit population but now foxes threaten our other endangered wildlife! The laws here are very strict and can be a real pain when you're trying to take pets in and out of the country with you but it means we have managed to keep a lot of nasty things out like rabies, foot & mouth and mad cow disease.

I understand, since quite a lot of Australia's industry is agro-based.
I remember reading something about how rabbits are pests in Australia & that's why they're banned.
That's why I was surprised to find out that you have a rabbit :-)

wow, Bunny was a serious sculture! I like how he's assessing and marking before getting down to some serious tasty sculpting!

We love the look of the doggy cupcakes! How they all sat with them without munching straight away, I'll never know! We would, nomnomnom!

Kristin, if you love bunny licks and lips, you should check out Carlton Jamal eating a juicy grape. So noisy and messy! :D
