The question must be asked: is this sweet, or is it horrific? Viewers of the TLC reality TV series "Toddlers & Tiaras" might recall that Paisley Dickey lost her pet rabbit Bun Bun last September. On Tuesday, we found out that the rabbit has returned, but at least not in a "Pet Cemetary"-ish way.
It was actually said last September, after Bun Bun died of a heart attack, that the family would stuff her. Paisley had only had her for two short weeks. Paisley refused to agree to burying Bun Bun, so the family went to a local taxidermist.
Strangely, it took this long -- about six months -- for the stuffing to take place. On the other hand, we're not taxidermists, so perhaps that's typical for stuffing a rabbit. It's unclear how long it might take to stuff a full-grown grizzly bear.
Initial reports said that Bun Bun suffered a cardiac arrest when a balloon popped. Wendy, Paisley mother, said she was not aware that pet bunnies are rather balloon surprise vulnerable.
A video of Paisley Dickley finally being reunited with Bun Bun is embedded.
"Toddlers & Tiaras" has spawned not one, but two spin-offs. First came the well-known "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," which first aired on August 8, 2012. That series is a show mainly about Alana Thompson, her parents and elder sisters, and their lives unrelated to pageants.
Another spin-off, "Cheer Perfection," began more recently, on Dec. 21, 2012. That series is about Cassadee Dunlap, Torann Robinson, Alana Crow and their familes. They were featured in some episodes of "Toddler and Tiaras." This series focuses on the children, their all-star cheer club Cheer Time Revolution and any drama unrelated to pageants.
