Suki has an announcement to make: "I'm okay! I miss my best friend Wally, but I'm okay!" Suki loved and admired Wally so much. Even when they were first bonding and Wally turned into what I called the "evil dragon-bunny," Suki never gave up trying to be his friend. It was always so funny to me how she'd run to safety on the patches of hardwood floor in my room. Wally would ferociously chase her up to the edge of the carpet and then he'd be too scared to run on the wood. He was quite fierce and confident ... until he had to leave his carpet. While I know Suki misses Wally, I can tell she loves being the center of my attention. She's a true snuggle bug. (And I didn't even know that "snuggle bugs" were real until I realized that Suki IS one! )

Suki and I are so very touched by the recent outpouring of love and support following the loss of our beautiful Wally Bunny. In spite of our sadness, we are so happy to know how loved Wally was and all the special ways he impacted people's lives. Please know how certain I am that Wally is doing just fine; can you imagine how ECSTATIC he is about his new angel wings?! If you listen carefully enough, you might be able to hear him announce, "I'm an ANGEL BUNNY!" as he leaps among the clouds.

I have some very sad news. Wally died on Wednesday night of a liver lobe torsion. He was his happy self when I left for work, and when I returned, he could hardly move. I took him to the ER and he died within the hour. My brother wrote me an email that I think captures Wally perfectly. I’ll share a part of it: "Wally’s light was so bright, he was like a shooting star. Shooting stars are brilliant and leave everyone in awe, they just sometimes don’t last long. But their memory lasts forever.” Wally was such a special bunny rabbit with a truly magical spirit. I love him so much and miss him with all my heart.

Have you ever just felt like throwing yourself on the floor but can't because you're at work, school, or in public? Well, Wally says, "I have just the solution! Watch ME instead!"

Wally is convinced that he's discovered "the best antidote to the Monday blues." And here it is: a photo of static bunny ears! Let us know if it works.

I can't imagine what it's like to have cheeks that blow in the wind. P.S. I have so much to do today, I thought what better a way to procrastinate than doing some Snaps! Come join us on Snapchat! Username: wallythebunny

It was really hard to get out of bed this morning. Wally flops next to me all the time in the morning. He comes up to tell me it's time for breakfast. When he's not successful waking me up, it's like he surrenders to his disappointment with a huge flop. Like the only way he can cope with not getting breakfast is to just hide from world. It's very funny. He knows the word "breakfast," so when I'm finally ready to wake up, I whisper "breakfast!" and he LEAPS up and runs in circles around me until I get out of bed.

Wally wanted to give everyone a "gift" in celebration of making it to Friday. So he asked me to take a photo of him making his "most adorable bunny face out of all my bunny faces ever!" Thank you for your gift, Wally.

Wally had such a good time visiting my sister's third grade classroom! He walked in and told the students he'd be their substitute teacher for the day, but he couldn't keep a straight face and burst into giggles. "Just kidding!" he said. "I'm not a substitute teacher, I'm a BUNNY!" Phew! Glad he cleared that one up!

This was Wally watching the Amazon truck pass our mailbox without making a delivery. Even when he knows he didn't order anything, he always has a sliver of hope that somehow he'll still get a package.

While I'm truly honored that Wally is so loved, it's unwise to buy an Angora without sufficient knowledge or preparation. Wally is my third rabbit, and even after years of learning about rabbit behavior, care, and safety, Angoras' special grooming needs have required a great deal of patience, time, and dedication. Rabbits are neither simple nor easy pets and can live for 10+ years. Behaviors that can be typical for rabbits (meaning that they are simply being rabbits!) include chewing on fabric, wood, and furniture, peeing on beds and couches, biting, scratching, thumping, hiding in small spaces, being fearful and mistrustful of people, struggling for freedom when being picked up, and skillfully escaping enclosures. You must be ready to appropriately respond to these behaviors and willing to understand what your rabbit is attempting to communicate and then listen to your rabbit. I really believe that there are no "bad" rabbits (whether they destroy your sofa or bite you with seemingly no apparent reason) - there are only people who have unrealistic expectations of the greatly misunderstood rabbit. Happy rabbits require a significant amount of research and preparation. Angoras require even more. Please, don't get a rabbit - and especially not an Angora - if you cannot be certain that you can provide the rabbit with an environment and level of care that is critical to the bunny's wellbeing. This includes spaying/neutering, paying for vet bills, never confining them solely to small cages, litter box training, understanding that many rabbits do not tolerate being picked up or handled by children, buying fresh greens several times per week, providing unlimited hay, and being observant of their eating and elimination patterns, as they are masters at hiding health problems because they are prey animals. Rabbit.org is an informative website. If you cannot follow all guidelines on this website, you may not be ready for a rabbit, which suggests that an Angora would be a very difficult first rabbit. Thank you for reading!

"TA-DA! Guess whose book came out today?" (Hint: See orange lettering on cover.) P.S. A note from me, Molly: Since when did my life include publishing a book?! What a surreal and magical thing! The book is truly adorable and it's been officially classified as "utopian" by Wally. We REALLY hope you love it!

Wally and I have been traveling! Our first adventure was a flat tire. When AAA arrived, Wally asked to watch the mechanic so that next time he'd be able to change the tire himself. The mechanic looked at Wally in disbelief because he'd never met a bunny who was so eager to learn to change a flat tire. That's my Wally.

Does anyone know what type of squirrel this is? It was running around my yard all day but I couldn't tell because it was going so fast! I included one slow-mo if that helps. I've just never seen such a peculiar squirrel ...

Suki has been asking Wally to help her with her camera shyness. I hear them whispering at night after I turn off the lights. Wally tells her that if she wants to make "great bunny films," she just needs practice. Here's a clip from their recent practice session, filmed by Wally. (P.S. I'm almost certain he was referencing his own videos when he said "great bunny films." )

Throwback to the time Wally made himself a fish costume. This was from the story I wrote over the summer with the surprise ending introducing Suki. I had so much fun working on that. I miss that time!

Wally says, "No one's perfect. Even I mess up on my flops every now and then." (See video from January 30th to view Wally's "typical" flops.)

Suki won't take a bite until Wally's cheeks are full. She's so thoughtful.

Here's the trailer to Wally's workout video called "Relax. Stretch it out. It's Friday." The idea is that you follow along and try the exercises. If there's enough interest, he'll release the full 40-minute video.

We're so sorry for not posting this week! I'm not trying to blame it solely on Wally, but the main reason is because Wally has been holding this plank for about four days so I've had no new material other than photos of his plank from dozens of angles. So ... now that he's come down from his plank, I should be able to take some new photos. Also, Wally's core is exceptionally strong for a bunny.

Wait until end of clip ... classic Suki. "WAKE UP!"

Guess why Wally's so excited? We're going to do some SNAPS! Will I capture some yawns? Flops? Snuggly wugglies? Come find out by joining us on Snapchat! Username: wallythebunny

Wally hasn't been able to sleep at night. He tosses and turns and then yells out to me, "My worries. My worries! They won't go away!" When I asked him last night to tell me about his worries, he said, "I'm afraid not everyone knows about my bunny book! What if someone out there doesn't even KNOW?!" After I told him we could do a post today to make sure that doesn't happen, I tucked him in and he fell right to sleep. Now that "EVERYONE KNOWS," go preorder Wally's book, available everywhere books are sold! And yes, that's faux fur on the cover!

Sometimes I can't help but sing a song I wrote for Wally and Suki. It would be perfect for background music, but I'm not ready to expose my musical talent to the public. To give you an idea of my talent, here are the lyrics: "Wally and Suki. Wally and Suki. (Huge crescendo:) Wally and Sukiii. WALLYYY and SUKIII!" It's really a lovely piece.

Happy Tummy Out Tuesday! Wally is almost certain that "no one will ever even KNOW!" that he hasn't been keeping up with his "Fluff to Buff" ab workout. He says his six pack isn't as "chiseled" as it was this summer, but it's "definitely still there." Can you see it?

Wally was wondering if this hat makes his cheeks look big? (P.S. He WANTS his cheeks to look big - it's a bunny thing.)

Wally spent the entire afternoon yesterday in his editing room. He's produced a "film" titled "An Epic Collection: Have You Ever See So Many Bunny Yawns?" Please enjoy his newest "film."

Aaw, Suki! I've always loved this photo of Suki being held by my friend. It captures her essence perfectly. (She is okay being picked up for short periods of time! Relax! She's not being harmed!)

Wally's been asking me EVERY day to post a photo of him with his book. In fact, he'd prefer that there be "three bunny book posts per day, one at every major mealtime - breakfast, lunch, and dinner!" I told him that may be too many "bunny book" posts in one day. Wally's "bunny book" is now available for preorder online everywhere books are sold!

"Please accept this video as a Monday gift from me, Wally the BUNNY! If you really feel like flopping but can't because you're at work or school, just watch this video and flop vicariously through ME, Wally!"

Wally loves to eat his Sunday brunch right out of the container.
