Attempting bonding, again.

I am working on bonding the four of them again. We are going away and I am boarding them. I am hoping to get them somewhat bonded and when they go to the Rabit Habit they will completely bond.
It didn't go too badly, I guess. Penelope is such a brat though. She is the smallest bunny and the biggest bully!
I think the problem is that she is a little princess and does not want any bun near her.

Good luck! I've heard of people having luck doing it how you are, by having them bond during boarding. Maybe because its completly new, and neutral teritory, that and the stress of being somewhere new maybe makes them be nicer to each other (Kind of like the same way taking them on a car ride helps them bond).

Thanks guys. I really hope you are right Michelle. Sometimes I think that I may be part of the problem. I really try not to be too nervous but it's hard when your babies are fighting!
I am taking tonight off. I had a bad day at work and I don't think I am exuding peace and calming feelings today.

Good luck with the bonding! I gave up with Elvis...there's no way he's ever going to be able to live with another rabbit . I really hope you have more luck than me!

Thanks guys. I appreciate the encouragement. I have got to get them together for a few minutes tonight. I don't want to do it during the hockey game tomorrow night. The two games I tried bonding during the Flyers lost. I just cannot take a chance again.
