WTF Wednesday - Rabbit Agilities

Alert reader, Khyra, sent me a link to this most disturbing movie of actual rabbits doing agilities!

This would explain many things, like why the agilities equipment in our yard is always knocked about and falling apart (yuh, momma always blames ME, as if). And also why momma would not let me snack on those bunnies in the yard.

I suppose in her desperate bid to become an agilities champion she is turning to bunnies given that I am, well, agilities challenges and PeeWee is A-frame obsessed. But seriously, I hope she wears a mask or something when she goes to compete.

For those of you without the high speed internets, I found these ACTUAL PHOTOS. Oh the horror!

To cleanse your viewing pallet, here is a picture of me eating Little Bo Peep's leggie. Nom, nom, nom.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. This is what the dog cave looks like and I am not allowed in. Talk about WTF!


Martha said...

Well Mango, thanks for posting this video and these pics.
This explains a lot!!!!!!
Now we know these bunnies are in training we dogs will have to take extra measures to catch the little blighters!
Your dog cave is being decorated.....don't they like slobber on the walls then?
love and kisses
Martha and Bailey xxx
ps we liked your NoNoNoNo comment!
We left the human voice in cos it made us laugh - they are just so stupid!

Inky and Molly said...

That is hilarious. Who would have thought that them bunnies wann be like us so much. Hey, good on 'em for trying...

Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Woof! Woof! Oh My It seems wrong n too funny ... but its real. I think this is the reason why mom donated all our agility equipments. Mmmmmm Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Anonymous said...

WTF is RIGHT!People are WHACK! and the dog cave... i mean, why call it a cave when it looks like it's gonna be all bright and happy in there? Your momma sure isn't payin' too much attention to your happiness lately. well except for that awsome bone. nommy!

wags, wiggles and woos,

Rabbits doing agility?!?!

You really think your momma is secretly training them?

That is way too wrong!!

Good on you chewing on Peter Rabbit's leg :P

Tucker said...

What is wrong with the world? Bunnies are terrible creatures... I is scared of them.

woof - Tucker

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Now see I need that stuff in my yard to train my three bunnies with.

houndstooth said...

Oh, let's start a new sport! Canine steeplechase! We'll let the rabbits go and then see who can catch them the fastest on the agility field!


Maggie Mae and Max said...

Ummm...I has no idea what to say 'bout this ;)

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

Unknown said...

Oh my dog!!

As if squirrels are not bad we seem to have a Bunnie invasion.....and now they be doing agility training, to boot! What next?? Blogging Bunnies??


Tama-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock, Violette, Ollie, Hotesse & Heloise said...

Well, it does make some kind of weird sense, doesn't it? And did you notice how the people were al dressed up too, in sporty outfits? Hah!

Pippen said...

There's just something so wrong about all that hopping around that those bunnies are doing... How are we supposed to catch them if they jump so high?

The WriggleButts said...

BOL! I'm a friendly guy, so I believe even bunnies should be allowed to have fun (until they have to become dinner. hehehe.).

Is what's going on in your dog cave what's called "vacation"? ;)


Achieve1dream said...

LOL! I've seen that video before. :) Craziness isn't it Mango Man?

Jack & Moo said...

Sending a canine or two down the runway after them would sure add some speed & interest to the whole thing, don't woo think?

jack a-roo & miss moo

Sue said...

We think they're practicing on our deck. When Mom goes out there in the morning, things aren't where she left them. They knock over flower pots and throw the bird feeders on the ground. Time to put out the word that this won't be tolerated.

Guess those bunnies must have some sibe in them - they aren't trusted off leash either:)

And what is going on there - we thought the momma was on vacay.

BRUTUS said...

Mom showed us that crazy stuff on facebook a few dyas ago. Hope she's not gonna start thinking about geting an agility bunny for herself. I'd better step up the efforts, huh? then again, a bunny would be fun to eat, um, I mean chase around and play with...

Nancy at the Farm said...

Rabbits doing agility? This is going to make my agility a tougher act than it once was! Hey bro' where did you get that bone? It is giganormous and we loves it!

Love, Dozer and Cooper

Mack said...

We've never had a wabbit before - OMD, I bet they are deelishuz! It looks like the dog cave is getting some renovashuns!

Raymond and Busby said...

This video explains everything. Do you suppose the dog cave is being transformed into a rabbit cave?

SeaThreePeeO said...

We was thinking that you could lay at the end of the long jump with your mouth open.

Kari in Alaska said...

Thats creepy

Molly the Airedale said...

We never gave it a thought that bunnies could jump over hurdles! That's really freaky!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

The Heartbeats said...

Mango- I just wanted to declare my undying love for you...

There is just something about big, wrinkley, slobbery dogs that I absolutely ADORE.

3 doxies said...

Oh dis is WRONG. I can't believes bunnies can be trained to do sumptin so dum.


Infrequent Flyers said...

Wow, those bunnies are actually good! I guess people who live in cold countries like Denmark gotta come up with some creative indoor hobbies. Rats, I'm going to have those agile bunnies stuck in my head all day--they're like the Jeopardy tune. You don't really like it, but it's hard to get out of your mind.

The Ladies of Beaglebratz Manor said...

Oh we duz like Bunny's(houndtooth's) idea. We bet u wood c sum hi-flyin'fast timez on the agility course fer shure - either that or the dogs mite end up goin'off course tu catch one of them bunniez. Furry bunniez doin'agility - SOOOOOOO WRONG!

Noah the Airedale said...

Hey if you position yourself in the right spot, like in front of the hurdle, they can jump straight into your mouth. Yummers.

Two Pitties in the City said...

Are you going to train your bunnies outside your fence to do that too?

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Those bunnies are pretty good.. Mango maybe you need a fluffy tail then you can jump that high!!!
Mango did you go wild in your cave?

Marjie said...

Agility Bunnies? That's just not right. And neither is the Dog Cave. Clearly, you need to take Momma out to play more. She must be most bored.

Clive said...


We've seen it all now! Amazing stuff!

take care
Clive and Murray

Ohmidogness, Mango! Dad showed me that movie the other day! You know what I think would be great?? An agilitys course where we chased the bunnies over the equipments! And then at the end, the winner could choose the bunny they wanted to take home for dinner! Haha!

Wiggles & Wags,

Nessa Happens said...

Madness. Madness!!!!

Oskar said...

That is really very odd!

I'd make a stink about the dog cave, literally. I know you've got it in ya'!

Nubbin' wiggles,

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Dog cave destruction? Bunnies jumpin over agility fences?...Scruffy...just cuz you and Stan chased a buncha rabbits cross the yard like ten minutes ago doesn't mean they were the same bunnies as on the video.

Hmm...and there seems to be some mistake on YOUR PART. It was I, Lacie, Lexter, who won your stoopid labradorable contest for having the cutest pix...I'm just sayin'....

Did you mom ever finish cleanin' out all those cabinets from New Years? Mumsie isn't even close and it's gettin' to be New Years AGAIN.


I'm just sayin'...


the magic sleigh said...

Wooos Mango, I thought I knew all about this big old world, but my view as just been turned upside down, rabbits doing agility, what next? Cats in obedience classes?
I hope woo cave gets reopened soon!

Lorenza said...

We read about bunnies doing agility the last week... and we did not know what to think about it!
Yes... wrong... wrong!
Is the turn of your cave for the makeover??
Kisses and hugs
