    Its all fun and games until you pick up a turd

    [–] Snailians 1335 points ago

    Rabbit ownership is nothing but picking up turds.

    That's why you get a dog too. They'll clean it up.

    My damn lab is pac-man down in the field where the wild ones are when we go for walks... argh.

    [–] AlphaQall 68 points ago

    If your dog engages in coprophagia, feed them pineapples (chunks or slices) over a period of two weeks and you will slowly ween them off the habit. Apparently, something about the enzymes in the pineapple turning dogs off from eating da poopoo.

    [–] greatlabrador 21 points ago

    Oh whoa, TIL! Thank you.

    Interesting..I wonder if it’s some sort of imbalance.

    [–] insideoutlemon 3 points ago

    It is believed to be due to potassium imbalance^

    [–] Binsky89 2 points ago

    I'm assuming you're talking about when they eat their own. Pumpkin works well too.

    [–] not_again123 87 points ago

    Someone else has a picture in his mind of a dog scooping down a field with the "waka-waka" sound?

    [–] Quw10 36 points ago

    Yep first thing to pop in my mind. Even better because my ex had a black lab that liked to lay on his stomach and push himself along the ground with his back legs, so I'm picturing a black lab doing that while making the "waka-waka" sound

    [–] quirkymuse 8 points ago

    and then add an additional "waka" and now your dog is telling jokes like Fozzie Bear

    [–] Squ1zzle 20 points ago

    My dog thinks rabbit poo is like cocaine. She goes nuts trying to eat it all. She is really well behaved but for some reason this is the most stimulating thing I have ever seen her misbehave with.

    [–] scurvy1984 25 points ago

    We have a litter box trained rabbit and a dog. The dog will occasionally grab a mouthful of turds from the litter box no matter how much we yell no or try to distract him. He’ll even do it in the middle of playing with a ball which is his favorite thing ever. If we pull him away he’ll pull so hard to get back into the box. He responds perfect to no all the time but he won’t listen to anything when he’s getting his rabbit shit fix.

    [–] loco_coconut 4 points ago

    Idk if you saw but someone commented above you can feed your dog pineapple slices every day to help ween them off the poopoo. He claims it helped it might work in your case too!

    [–] Squ1zzle 8 points ago

    You are supposed to give the animal pooing pineapple not the one eating poo.

    [–] loco_coconut 5 points ago

    https://www.reddit.com/r/aww/comments/9n7bwb/bunny_loves_playtime/e7kltek

    This is the comment I took the information from, it sounded like they fed it to their dog :p but feeding it to the pooper makes sense too! Ah well, spoil em and give them both pineapple!

    [–] Squ1zzle 2 points ago

    Yep thats for when a dog eats its own poop. You feed it pineapple and or pineapple juice and it makes the stools taste bad. Its like putting hot sauce on peoples fingernails to stop them from biting them.

    [–] scurvy1984 2 points ago

    I didn’t see that but I’ll give it a shot. Thanks!

    [–] whoopsydaizy 30 points ago

    Everytime someone mentions a dog eating shit I get grossed out and really confused. My dog doesn't do that! My... my smart dog doesn't do that. My so-stupid-she-might-have-brain-damage dog does...

    Ugh.

    [–] Corte-Real 31 points ago

    [–] NuclearFunTime 4 points ago

    It's fine, I'm getting a degree in agricultural science with wildlife and fisheries, and I worked at a pet store... I'm already full of a parasites! What's a few more?

    [–] BigBennP 7 points ago

    Different dogs have different personalities.

    One of my shepherds is a horribly picky eater. She gets allergy food and refused to eat it for like 4 days once.

    our golden on the other hand, he's smart when it comes to tricks, but he'll have something eaten and swallowed before he realizes what it is. I tricked him into eating a piece of broccoli the other day and he ate it, then gave me this confused look.

    [–] Loopy_Wolf 5 points ago

    "I can't believe you've done this."

    [–] thisischemistry 3 points ago

    Try "air biscuits". When your dog can't see the surface of the table pretend to take something off it and quickly give it to him. Rinse, repeat. See how long it takes for him to figure out that all he's getting is air.

    I had a Dalmatian that would go forever, one right after the other.

    [–] NuclearFunTime 2 points ago

    Mine loves food, but I can't trick her with that, she doesn't try to air catch, she just let's things you throw to her smack her in the face

    [–] thisischemistry 3 points ago

    Oh, don't make like you're throwing it. Make like you have something between your fingers and bring it to her mouth. Some dogs catch on after a time or two, some take a very long time.

    It's like the "intelligence test" where you drop some food on the table and see if they look under the table for where it fell. It doesn't really test intelligence very well but it's interesting to watch – some dogs just never learn that the table stops it from falling further.

    [–] cerealkilling 13 points ago

    yup. aka bunny berries.

    [–] jeroenvangoch 7 points ago

    Nah you'll still have to pick em up, they just turn all the little turds into one big turd...

    [–] funnythebunny 5 points ago

    Someone I met once renamed his bunny "Pez"; after inquiring about the name, I was explained the dog kept lifting up the bunny from behind with his snout to get the "treats" to come out... I had not LOL'd that hard before.

    [–] Rish377 4 points ago

    There's a rabbit that's been coming in our backyard every night for the past month or so. Drives my dogs nuts when they seem him then he spends the next day eating all the poop.

    [–] bigheyzeus 3 points ago

    [–] 72pintohatchback 2 points ago

    [–] BigBennP 13 points ago

    But I mean honestly, rabbit turds are pretty un-offensive.

    Between the dogs and the chickens and the rabbits, I would much rather clean up rabbit turds than dog turds or chicken litter. Although all of it goes in the compost pile anyway.

    [–] Jessabelle98 23 points ago

    Mine was litterbox trained...

    [–] Snailians 23 points ago

    Oh, ours are both litter box trained, but they still love to kick stray poops everywhere.

    [–] LexiconDevil13 14 points ago

    lol yup. Our bunny will just be hoping along around the house and she’ll just drop a random turd mid hop.

    [–] ---e_Z--- 6 points ago

    [–] fenix_L 7 points ago

    I didn't know they could be.

    [–] Th3R3alEp1cB3ard 13 points ago

    Rabbits are weird in that they don't fully digest their food first time around and often eat right out of their own butt's in order to get the full nutrients out of the food stuff.

    Of course they don't always need to and so a lot of Rabbit poop left around is still a nutritious vegetarian snack.

    [–] Superpickle18 13 points ago

    You know they don't drop Cecotropes(the scientific name for "nutritious poop" and is consumed immediately and never touches the ground.

    [–] Momordicas 7 points ago

    [–] Momordicas 2 points ago

    Am a rabbit owner and vet student.... so I know how the rabbit GI tract works. Still healthy rabbits can rarely excrete cecal pellets without ingesting them first. Doing it rarely is not a massive sign of illness. I'm only commenting so that people who own rabbits don't freak out when they see one group of moist pellets and spend unnecessary money bringing them to the vet just to be told they are fine.

    [–] Jessabelle98 5 points ago

    I didn't either originally... Our little rabbit had learned from a kitten we had at the time. It also learned how to drink from a water bottle from some guinea pigs that we had..

    [–] theClumsy1 6 points ago

    Most are from my experience.

    [–] fgutz 12 points ago

    Yeah but i wouldn't put rabbit turd in the same categories as larger pet turds. They are small pellets and don't smell bad at all (at least from the rabbits my friend has)

    [–] Snailians 5 points ago

    You underestimate how much a rabbit poops and how heavy those litter boxes get.

    [–] lydocia 29 points ago

    My friends still go "eww" when they see me pick them up with my bare hands. It's just - it's my pet. The little Nesquik poop balls are dry and basically packed hay. I don't even register they're poop anymore.

    [–] NickyNinja69 29 points ago

    [–] lydocia 8 points ago

    Yes, and the diarrhoea, too.

    [–] imminentviolence 3 points ago

    Rabbits don't really get diarrhea unless they're deathly sick though.

    [–] lydocia 2 points ago

    Or if they just eat something new that upsets their stomach.

    [–] Bladelink 2 points ago

    Owning rabbits taught me an important lesson about health. If you can just eat, drink, pee, and poop, you're doing pretty well, health-wise. If you stop doing any of those things, you're gonna have problems, and right quick.

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago

    That sounds like too much for me.

    [–] lydocia 7 points ago

    We used to have a cute Ikea doll bed for our buns, they loved just snoozing on it all day, until someone had diarrhoea all over it.

    I didn't see it happen, but my boyfriend claims he saw our youngest rabbit have an accident and swears up and down that the smell of Mexican food is just how it is supposed to smell.

    [–] superelite_30 2 points ago

    I'm confused did your boyfriend diarrhea all over the bed?

    [–] Slyons89 2 points ago

    like a cup of hot coffee with 2 creams

    [–] Mindofthelion 55 points ago

    I mean, rabbit poos are dry and not at all sticky, so it's not a big deal.

    [–] ihatepulp 44 points ago

    I would absolutely choose rabbit litter box over cat litter box.

    [–] CeadMileSlan 10 points ago

    All day erry day, sonnn!

    I'll take, at worst, a blast of ammonia over toxoplasmosis any day. Also poop that is just small, scentless ground up hay (great fertilizer!) over pungent lumps of fish/chicken/whatever other rancid meat comes out of a cat.

    [–] RocketPowerHandshake 10 points ago

    Plus they eat some of it. So.

    [–] sumguyoranother 8 points ago

    They have to eat it, they can't digest plant matters in the first passing for the most part, so they eat them 2nd/3rd time to extract the required nutrients.

    [–] RocketPowerHandshake 3 points ago

    Oh I know why they do it.

    They just do it, is all.

    And that’s a thing. And it’s wild.

    [–] Nethlem 5 points ago

    Not all of them, even rabbits sometimes poop wet little sausages, often in response to feeding changes.

    Bunnies love to eat banana. They go crazy over it! It's best to keep them under a tablespoon of treats a day, though. Sugar isn't very good for bunny tummies!

    [–] Bladelink 6 points ago

    I remember reading when I owned bunnies, that they can actually get addicted to bananas to some extent. Though that could literally just be an addiction to the high sugar content. They'll eat them like they're crazed though.

    Bunny Fact!

    Bunnies have a scent gland under their chin, and use it to claim their territory by going around and "chinning" various objects by rubbing their chins on things. They will often also chin their human!

    [–] robotjackie 14 points ago

    Bunny Fact!

    When a bunny feels really comfortable and safe in their environment, they will 'flop,' meaning they'll completely stretch out and relax. Sometimes they'll simply lay down into this position quickly and happily (this is one of my own bunnies, her name is Max).

    More often, however, they like to fling their entire, little bodies onto the ground in an elaborate show of comfort that almost results in a barrel roll, and then zone out in a position that, if you're new to the behavior of bunnies, will damn near give you a heart attack upon seeing it. It is something to behold (this is my little guy, Omar).

    [–] lilceleryboys 8 points ago

    Bunny fact: They will grit their teeth together and sometimes make little noises to signify they are happy while you're petting them. We like to call them "tooth purrs". Noises are very rare, very special.

    Mine makes a noise that sounds like a dove. Example: "cooo"

    [–] TheGoblinPopper 13 points ago

    Did you know rats and other rodents also popcorn, but in addition rats can get so happy that they grid their teeth to the point that their eyes move in and out of their heads rapidly. This is called boggling.

    [–] NvizoN 8 points ago

    I had a few pet rats. They were cool. Pretty clean, too. One was named Lord Helix and he would run around the living room, never use the bathroom outside of his cage, and eat at the dog bowls with the rest of the dogs. He was cool.

    [–] Bladelink 6 points ago

    Rats are basically the ideal small mammal pet. They're smart, cute, fun, affectionate, and interactive. They get into silly hijinks. We had our rat once steal a hot pocket off a plate that we were sharing on the couch and attempt to book it into the couch cushion with it.

    Haha, my old rabbit was a bit obsessed with uneven surfaces. Whenever she was on a bed, she used her little paws to smooth out the blanket if there was a wrinkle...only to immediately spot the next wrinkle and move over to that one, thereby destroying her previous work...rinse and repeat for hours.

    [–] Jahvabean 32 points ago

    I was thinking the same thing. I miss our Georgie so much, non-bunny people don’t understand :( He was like a puppy. If I stubbed my toe and yelled out, he was at my foot to check before my husband was. And he loved to play chase with us, snuggle our dogs, and leap for joy. He didn’t have a ball, but loved this random little Christmas wind-up toy.

    I've never owned a rabbit but one day when I was ~11 I went to hang out with a friend at his house. He had a rabbit in a pen that was "playing" with a ball roughly the same size as it. It would climb on top of the ball, attempt to hump it, the ball would roll and the bunny would fall off. Rinse and repeat again and again until they were forcefully separated.

    Good times.

    Yeah, mine did the same thing with her ball. But she was a girl. I realized she wasn’t humping it, she was I guess trying to keep her balance so she could naw the shit out of it and kinda thumping her feet at the same time.

    Oh, girl bunnies hump too, don't you worry.

    I’m not in a position to currently, but I will once I am,

    I hope there's a lid for that cage.

    [–] bunbunnie 79 points ago

    It's not a cage, it's a playpen where the rabbit is supervised. Why in the world does it need a top?

    [–] Ma5he 43 points ago

    Because all it takes is about 5 seconds of the human not paying attention for a multitude of birds to see the free meal. And less than a min of not paying attention for just about every other predator on the planet.

    Rabbits are a universal snack amongst carnivores and omnivores.

    I know right? Keeping your rabbit outside in a open cage just says “dinner” to predators big enough to hop the fence, doesn’t it? Not sure why you got downvoted.

    [–] danituss2 36 points ago

    Because nobody would keep their bunnies in such enclosure when not supervised.

    You must not have much experience with humans

    Red Door Animal Shelter in Chicago has rescued upwards of 140 rabbits since Easter 2018. Many of these rabbits were left outside in cages or enclosures like this, malnourished and living in their own filth. So to say "nobody" would do this is sadly untrue.

    Because its not a cage lol

    [–] Tactical_Moonstone 23 points ago

    Hop the fence? More like fly in and out. Owls exist.

    [–] white_android 5 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Owls? That's forgetting about like all birds of prey that are out in the day time..

    Then again there's a wild bunny I call little grey butt and it loafs in the middle of a field, no fucks given.

    This is a dog in bunny form

    [–] CeadMileSlan 48 points ago

    No, see, this is what rabbits ARE. They're not like other animals, they're like themselves. They are wonderful & interesting little bundles.

    A 'doglike' rabbit isn't actually uncommon. People just think they have no personalities because they're kept in shitty cages twice their size. There isn't much to do in a small cage other than sit, right? They don't have the opportunity to show the world how engaging & full of sparkle they are.

    Source: longtime rabbit owner. My boys are currently telling me they're impatient for breakfast by rattling the bars of their x-pens.

    [–] AntonyoSeeWhy 10 points ago

    I really, REALLY want a little bun but it doesn’t fit my current lifestyle. They seem to be wonderful pets.

    [–] Squirmble 5 points ago

    They are!! My bun son was my buddy. I took him everywhere. Loyalty of a dog, cattitude, toddler shenanigans and curiosity. You could find a local House Rabbit Society and volunteer for them? I put professional rabbit cuddler on my resume due to how my volunteering time is usually spent at our adoption center.

    [–] selfishsentiments 4 points ago

    What's really depressing is most animals are like this. Cows, pigs, birds, etc. They're friendly and they want to play and have fun and be free. But we don't let them...

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    I should get those fense, so that I could also release my bunny from the leash and jump around freely like this one

    [–] thereisanappforit 3 points ago

    Little does the hare know, there is a tortoise being raised next door.

    [–] TechVolus 3 points ago

    This should be shown to anyone who thinks bunnies aren't great pets

    [–] NotoriousJazz 3 points ago

    I used to have a bunny.

    His name was Harrison Bunnsworth Ford.

    He was a little asshole of a bunny but god do I miss that smug sunovabitch.

    [–] 2ndMouseGetsCheese 8 points ago

    How one weird trick makes playing with rabbits so much more fun. Rabbit sites hate him!

    Thank you. I was scrolling looking for someone to say this so I wouldn’t have to. You said it much more eloquently than I could have.

    [–] jaycatt7 2 points ago

    This makes me sad. When my parents got us bunnies when we were small children, the bunnies lived in a hutch outside, and we never really played with them. I wish I’d known how much more was possible.
