Monday Mario

Continuing with "Favorite Mario Moments" today.  These are pretty short and have no great accompanying photos:

Once when I was washing the dishes Mario was lounging on the carpet in the middle of the apartment.  Suddenly I heard Boyfriend yell, "Look!"  I turned around in time to see Mario 1/4 of the way into a dog-trick "roll over."  His little front paws were up in the air and 'round they went.  His head just sort of followed along.  I guess there are probably rabbits that do this all the time and lounge around on their backs, but Mario isn't one of them so it was pretty cute.

Another great Mario moment happened when Boyfriend asked Mario to binky for him.  Actually Boyfriend started pumping his arms up and down in the air and shouted, "Show me your hydraulics!"  Mario, as if on cue, popped one foot straight into the air.  Chloe used to do straight-up-in-the-air-binkies but these are a lot rarer for Mario.


I finally remembered to get Mario's Christmas decorations up in his cage.  I bought these for him and Chloe a few years ago.  They are chew-safe.  Of course neither of them were interested in chewing them so I took them down when the season was over.  Last year Mario finally decided to mutilate the snowman a little (far left).

Tid used to do that roll on the back and roll over thing, but I've never seen Cadbury do it. So adorable, especially if they look around afterwards like they aren't sure what just happened!

None of my buns have ever rolled over. How cute of Mario!! He must really love his Christmas decorations too :D Buttons would have them destroyed in 2 seconds!

Love the little ornaments! Not sure if Freckles has ever rolled over, but I'd probably remember if it had happened. She's a good flopper though.

I think of MArio as the Binkie right up type ... like the little game - Mario!

I had no idea bunnies lounged on their backs? That is too cute!

And Mario is dang lucky to have an owner like you to hang Xmas ornaments in his cage!

Bunnies do the cutest things! Babs rolls over and plays dead when she wants attention! And Taz binkied yesterday morning--and he's 9.5 years old!
