Taking a break from the bunnys posting here to celebrate the SIXTH anniversary of The Princess coming to live with us. She was our very first bunny and was only 8 weeks old. We knew just about nada about having a house bunny; Bunny Lady scoured the I-net, her friends, and especially the House Rabbit Society. We made many mistakes, learned a great deal, and The Princess survived, taught us well, and is now Queen of this House of Rabbits.
Although The Princess was originally for Bunny Lady, she has become pretty much my rabbit now, and we spend lots of time together. The Princess likes to sit quietly in my lap and she is a source of much peaceful mindfulness for me and for her, sometimes twice a day. Because I know rabbits do not often live a long time, she has taught me to enjoy those moments, and not waste the time worrying much about tomorrow or fussing over yesterday. We get along well!
Why she is pretty much my rabbit now is a whole other story .. maybe you will read it sometime!
Some comments about those pictures of the "bunns with the kids" made me realize how fortunate we are to have rabbits that actually do like to be held some. I guess lots of pet rabbits don't, especially ones who were not treated that way at an early age. Instinctively they prefer to run and hide. Everyone of our guys gets one or two good snuggles just about every day .. it is great!
Spell Check is back to working ... thanks to whoever alerted me to that!
