Epic Bunny Post (Now with 50% More Bunny!)

So, there's a new bunny in town. His name is Charley and he is pretty much the most awesome little guy ever (but don't let Rico and Pedro hear me say that). He came to the House Rabbit Network with some serious teeth issues:but they got him fixed up and he is now a happy little toothless bunny (like Pedro, only less grouchy). When he first came home with me, I gave him half of the kitchen. My guys never come over to that half anyway, and I thought sharing a fence line might be a good way to get used to each other. Here he is in assorted styles of cuteness:Rico seemed curious but cautious about the new rabbit in his kitchen. He would come up to the fence and touch noses with Charley or rub his chin on the fence near where Charley was lounging. Pedro? Not so friendly. It was almost funny how he kept trying to bite at Charley, forgetting (apparently) that he doesn't have any teeth. I never knew Pedro had this aggressive side to him. Before we go to outdoor pictures and videos, here are some nice ones of Rico and Pedro hanging out together inside. Together in the cave:
Rico helping Pedro clean his nose:Showing off cute hind legs:And just being fat and handsome on a rug:
The thinking behind our trip outside (aside from the fact that it wasn't raining and I was allowed to lift the fence) was that it wasn't anybody's territory yet. Even though it wasn't raining, the grass was wet, and Pedro found that extremely upsetting. Here's poor, wet Pedro with his tongue out, trying to clean his dirty paws:
Looking at Rico and Pedro, you would barely know there was another rabbit in the picture:Until he wandered into the frame, that is:
Before I get to ridiculous videos, here are many many pictures of the best part of outdoor playtime: Bunnies running!!! First there's Pedro in both graceful:and less-than-graceful poses:then Rico:and finally Charley:On to videos. Charley initially tried to assert his dominance over Pedro in a not very nice way, and after Pedro made it clear that he wasn't cool with such things, Charley got a bit jumpy around him:

Charley had a fun (to him) game of leaping over Rico and Pedro. The issue was that they both found this extremely annoying (because they are old and grouchy) and that he would occasionally miss and land on their head or kick them in the face. Here are a few instances of playing the game with Rico. The last one is the best:

Charley lives in all of the rooms of the apartment that aren't the kitchen now, and Rico and Pedro have the kitchen back to themselves. I think this is better for everyone. Hopefully over time everyone can learn to get along, because I already sort of love Charley so I don't want him to go anywhere...
