For the previous three years, we had been "gypsying" about - trying life in various other parts of the West. But by this time we had decided to buy our place back in the Pacific NW and "settle down" for a change!
We went down to the Farm to visit too, and this kid and the Bunny Lady .. who was then a pretty serious cat lady .. spent quite a lot of time in the Farm barn each holding a nice dutch bunny ... Thelma and Louise the dutchies were. Those two chatted a lot, mostly about how nice it would be to have a bunny like one of these. Well, one day, not much later, Thelma or Louise got out of the pen and found Cocoa, who looks a lot like our The Princess. But Thelma or Louise was, rather, The Big Bad Boy - and Cocoa had a litter about New Years of 2002 ... one of which was The Princess.
The Farm owners, seeing the connection, made us a somewhat surprise gift of the little Princess Bunny once she was eight weeks old ... that's how we got started!
Why we have so many? ... that is quite a different story. You might have to read the book.
