Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful day!

Time to kick back and relax a bit, like this bunny in bunny slippers:

So cute! The bunny does not seem to be enjoying his slippers or maybe he is just contemplating the ridiculousness, in any event, I think the photo op was worth it.

Easter Nail Art

Nail art is all the rage these days! Well, at least if you have been following that trend on the internet. Some of the designs that people come up with are very intricate and require advanced skills. Don’t know anyone that skilled at painting both hands, (maybe most don’t or have someone to help paint the other hand?) so here are some cute beginner designs for Easter/Spring. Good luck!

A couple tips:
1. Make sure your base layer(s) are dry before adding details.
2. Use dotting tools, nail art pens, or thin detail brushes to add details. Some people create designs with brushes and acrylic paint instead of nail polish.
3. Depending on design you may have to let some portions dry before moving on to make sure you don’t smear or rub off tiny details.
4. Always apply a top coat to protect your design!

Bunny Designs

Bunny Faces:
These are cute and easy, look great in multiple colors, and have very simple eyes and ears.

Here is a tutorial on this kind of face:

Chick Designs

How to paint your entire nail as a chick:
This is pretty simple! Nail all one color, then you just have to paint on the eyes, beak, and feet.

Here is a video from MissJJan showing this process and how to make Easter eggs:

Chick with egg shell:
This adds another layer to the design, a bit more intricate and interesting. It would be cute to have a mix of chicks – two shells, one shell half, no shell at all.

I think this is a great example of how to paint a sheep on your nail, something a little different but still very related to Easter!

Of course, for those who can have more advanced bunny painting skills:

Hope you guys give it a try, I know my human is going to. Silly though, because everyone knows that guinea pigs are far superior to rabbits!

Lionhead Rabbit

Lionhead rabbits fascinate me, so I decided to do some research on the breed.

Dwarf Lionhead

The Lionhead has a wool mane that surrounds its head and ears. Their fur is a bit wavy but otherwise soft and silky. Given the wool, these rabbits do require regular grooming to prevent mats. Lionheads come in a variety of colors and are a small breed with a compact body. They have upright ears which should not exceed 3 inches in length. An adult rabbit of this breed usually weighs no more than 3 pounds 12 ounces. Lionheads have a temperament which is usually calm and friendly. Always remember that every animal is unique and breeding is only a small part of personality. Lifespan is around 7 to 9 years.

The Mane:
The mane is a genetic mutation. The exact origin of the breed is not known, but it is commonly thought that the mutation first occurred from a breeding in Belgium with the cross of a Swiss Fox and a Belgium Dwarf, then crossing those babies with other wool rabbits. This gene is not the same gene which produces wool in other wooled rabbit varieties however. Lionhead rabbits can receive two copies of the gene and have a double mane, have one copy and have a single mane, or have no copies and therefore no mane. The single mane variety has wool only around its head, ears, chest, and maybe on its tail. A double maned lionhead has more wool overall, more around the head with wool that can be on its hind legs, tail, and hips forming a “skirt.” Too much extra wool, or no wool at all, is not desirable for show rabbits but any of these varieties make great pets.

Mane only on neck:

Fluffier overall:

This lionhead appears to have wool only around its neck and on the tail:

Breed Recognition:
In the United States, the North American Lionhead Rabbit Club is a great organization to join if you have or breed this type of rabbit to discover more information. The American Rabbit Breeder’s Association does not yet recognize the breed, but the process to gain recognition is currently ongoing. Lionheads can be shown at ARBA shows currently as an exhibition breed.

Please enjoy these adorable lionhead pictures:

Stuff On My Pet?!?

Is your pet very accommodating and will allow you to place objects on them somewhere? It seems like a new internet fad to place objects on your pets and share the images. Of course, some of these ideas (and photos) have been circulating the internet for years.

Here are two examples:

1. Dogs who will tolerate items on their heads-



It is fairly easy to train a dog to keep a treat or item on their head, it is a good way to teach patience and focus even when food is involved.

2. A rabbit with some type of object on their head – often a pancake –



There was one rabbit which started this craze named Oolong.


Many copy-ca… uh, copy-bunnies have popped up to show off their own pancake balancing skillz across the reaches of the internet.

Now, for your viewing pleasure, there are sites which have a plethora of examples of these types of images all gathered together!

For more bunny balancing acts, check out the twitter Stuffonmyrabbit.

For more dog images, check out stuffonmymutt.com.

Stuffonmymutt has dogs sporting all kinds of items their owners managed to place on them including clothes.




If you have some free time or need something to make you smile, I suggest checking out either of the above sites!
