Now Playing: Noo Members ob Our Warren! / Who Is Spoilt? (Pt. II)
"Yeah." Sed Missy frumma pootie-box. "And if enny obb'em bodder you, lemme know. I know how to handle dem."
"Yeah." Sed Mr Mouse. "Furst you pee on eidder da Dawg or a Cat, whichebber is closer, and den *thump*. When you *thump* da Dawg is trained to go get Dadda. And Dadda will be all grumpy and will start to boil wadder to make a Cuppa'Tea, and while dat is going on, he will putta Dawg outside inna Back Gardin to go On Patrol, no madder iffa Dawg wants to go or not, and he will send any Catz Uppystairs to dere 'Partmint, where they will Sulk. Mebbe I will ged to show you later."
"Wow!" Hextclaimed da Little Not-Lightning Bunny. "You got sum System!"
And right about den, Maman arrived and don't'cha know, Dusty hextploded innu akshun again, yelling "Hey! Wady! Cuddle me! Pet me! Pet me! Pet me!"
And Maman, being Maman, decided we all needed to hab more Purina Bunny Chow. So she gave each ob us sun frumma measuring cup and told Mr Mouse,
"Mouse, frum now on, you are onna diet. You need distilled wadder, fewer calcium loaded greens, and more hay. I am beginning to see some sludge in your urine."
And, well, dat made Mr Mouse more annoyed den he alreddy was wif Dusty's antics. So he went to sit in his corner and gave Maman da RBB.
And Maman opined da Frigerator and axted, "Who wants Salad?" which is Wun ob Her More Stoopit Qwestshuns.
And Missy raised out her ears and was wike, "Whucha'Fink? We all do!"
And Dusty was still bouncing around at high speeds, axtin' for Maman to "Hold me! Pick me up! Pet me! Pet me! Pet me!"
And Maman laffed at him, and sed, "You are a spoilt little miniLop! Just like Hunny! You've wrapped your Mawmie Sherri around your little paw, haven't you?"
And Maman reached innu Dusty's habbytat and was pettin' him! And Dusty was getting hextackly whut he axted for!
And acrosst da way Mr Mouse sed sourly, "It figgers. Dat Bunny-Child has only ebber had good mawmies. Wookit how spoilt! I mean *rilly*!"
And I'm sittin' dere, finkin', and den it dawned on me dat Mr Mouse was preddy spoilt, too. So I'm wike, "Wookit, didn't you start off wiffa good Dadda, too?"
And Mr Mouse was wike, "Yes. A great Dadda. He wuld come home frum werk, and den he and I wuld sit onna sofa, eat cereal and watch 'Law & Order' togedder. Den dat mean wommin he got bonded to made him choose between her and me and LuckieBun. And he didn't want ennybunny habbin' us for snake food or pit-bull practice. So he brought us to Our Warren.Whut obb'it?"
"Well," I sed, "Wookit Dusty anna Little Not-Lightning Bun dere. Now Little Not-Lightning Bunny wassa'bandonded, and he got taken in by Dusty's Mawmie Sherri, but wookit Dusty..."
And Missy sed frumma pootie-box, "How can I miss him? He's soaking up alla pets and making our salads late!"
And I'm wike, "Yeah. He's a miniLop, isn't he? And he's grey and white and he looks wike da pikchurs ob Cousin Bailey and Cousin Wally (God bless him!) and they are bof grey-and-white miniLops. And Dusty is eating pellets like dere is no tomorrow. Dat is also a miniLop habit, onna'count obba Fakt dat Auntie Grace and Dadda say miniLops are 'garbage-guts'..."
And Missy glared at me, and was wike, "Waidaminit! I amma miniLop, too! And so is Cousin Sheeba!"
"And bof ob your are or *almost* are Big Beautiful Bunny-Gurls ob Gen'rus P'porshuns." I added, rilly fast (because I might be a lotta kinds ob bunny, but "dumb" isn't wunna dem!). "Dadda and Auntie Grace sed dat miniLops are 'garbage-guts' right afta Murphy ate dat 'Whacky Whipper' and Godiva (Bless him!) ate Auntie Grace's Pink Flip-flop."
"So basically whut you're saying," Sed Mr Mouse frum his corner where he was gibbin' Maman da RBB, "Issat Our Warren is suddenily increased by two because dere wassa 'Sponsible Bunny-Mawmie who loved her bunnies enough to bring dem to Our Warren - Wun nice Dwarf kinda English Spot bunny whose name is Not Lightning, anna stereotypically needy, garbage-gut grey-and-white miniLop named Dusty."
"Yeah, preddy much." I agreed. "No such fing as Strangers, NoBunny OnAlone, just wike Belinda sed."
And we sat around and throught aboud'dis while Maman petted Dusty.
And den MissyBun sat up, put her ears out straight and yelled, "Hey! You! Maman! Stop pettin' dat bunny and ged busy wif dose Salads! I can hear da Standing Clock inna Living Room chiming!"
And Maman stuck her hed up and alla'sudden, rushed off, outta da Bun Room clutching bags frumma 'Frigerator. And preddy soon, we each gotta Romaine Cup wif Curly Parsley, Flat Italian Parlsey, Home-grown Dill Weed, a Peppermint sprig, and two Baby Organic Carrots.
And then some Big Thunderstorms came, so Mr Mouse missed 'Law & Order' and that made him madder than ebber, because Mouse hates enny kind of Change.
He's ebben agreed to help Fred Thompson pose for pikchurs to be Pressydent. For now. Mouse sed da WholeFing might ged infekted by "pollyticks" and dere are no tablets to take for dat, wike da Dawg does for reg'lar ticks.
And dat's preddy much dat, for now, heer at Our Augemented Warren!
