Thumper told me to tell you all that she is very anxious to hit the bunny trail and visit with you all! She's a little nervous about crossing the ocean, but I told her she'd be just fine! :welcome:

We started doing this over 3 years ago on another forum. Someone read a book about a photographer who hauled an old red couch all over the country & took pics of it in front of various famous sites. So, we decided to do this with a mini animal. The basic rules are.....

1/ Each host will keep Thumper for 3 days.

2/ Each host will fill out Thumper's journal.

3/ Each host will post when she arrives & departs.

4/ The box will be sent with a tracking number. the host will pay mailing costs.

5/ Each host may or not leave a token of Thumper's visit, that will stay with her until she gets home.

6/ Each host will send pics & text to Teresa to be posted on her web site.

7/ Each host will send Thumper to the next person on the list.

This is fun...so get your info to Teresa.

Sigh, due to time constraints this winter, I won't be able to participate in this one. I look forward to reading about everyone else's adventures though. These travellers are just so much fun.

What do you do when Thumper comes to visit???? All you have to do is to take photos of her with your minis, around your house, around your town, with your family, etc. Each day you can send a pic or 2 or 3 to Teresa & she will post them on Thumper's web site for all to read. Then after 3 days (or more if it's a holiday or weekend) send her off to her next destination. It's easy & fun !!!

Thumper is so excited she's started packing her suitcase already . . . I'm getting empty nest syndrome! :wub:

Here's a picture of her with the 'list'! She's very adamant that I not forget anything!

I would love too. Actually, I think my daughters would love it! But unfortunately, I can see myself messing up and not sending her on her way in time because the next tfour months are gonna be super busy for me. I'll have to wait until next time :flowers: But I can't wait to read about it.

Now, is Thumper a girl or a boy (Sarah my youngest wants to know) :flowers:

I know that Ray and I are really looking forward to Thumper coming to stay with us. Missymew hopes that Thumper likes cuddling. Missymew loves to cuddle and has the best purr.

We'll also stock up on carrots as soon as Thumper's on her way.

Tracy, you can tell Sarah that 'Thumper' is very much a girly girl! Her favorite color is pink and she absolutely adores chocolate!

We'll also stock up on carrots as soon as Thumper's on her way.

Carrots are good, Susanne, but she really does prefer chocolate . . . I know, I know, I indulge her . . . but what can i do? She takes after her mommy! :monkeydance:

I have advised Teresa that I am pulling out. With the flooding and pregnancy and all that goes with both, we are beyond busy when I am feeling well enough to do anything.

This winter will be unsettled at the very least and I do not want to hold anyone else up. Hopefully I will follow Thumper's travels while sitting like a queen on bedrest keeping the baby incubating to close to term! I will definitly be in need of the "entertainment" :monkeydance:

Thumper is packed and ready to go on Friday! She has her blankie, her favorite book (The Secret Garden), some chocolate bars and of course her carrot! We just have to get to the bank this week for some spending money!

Well, she is leaving here and going to Steve's first. He will print up the mailing labels, rules, et cetera. From there we will get the 'list'. I'd like to see her go to Sweden and New Zealand first so she can make it back to Canada and the States before Christmas . . .

Teresa -

You've done such a wonderful job in getting Thumper ready for his journey. Whenever she comes to Edmonton I'll be ready for her. I'm so looking forward to having her come and stay at our house.

Hugs

We are all ready for Thumper. Saturday is the last day to sign up...Right ?? I am thinking that she will go overseas first, so she is back for the holidays. Teresa, you can send me what info you have so far & I can start making labels & working on her schedule.
