BAXTER HELPS OUT ...

Labor Day was wet and dribbly and very Rabbit-Centered here. First this young girl and her aunt came over to have some bunny time. Baxter is a great lap-bunny and BL gave the kid the entire story of rabbits and all about ours. The grand tour. An hour and a half!

Just about the time they are set to leave, another friend and her grand daughter came to see what having a bunny is like. This kid was serious about getting a rabbit and so she too got the whole kit and kaboddle of education. To top it off, Laura from RenoRabbits came over to share her experiences and advice too and boy this kid is totally prepared! Plus she went away with both BL's and Laura's phone numbers and a couple of books!

I guess it worked because we heard the kid right now got herself a bunny - a lion-head? - and is yet another member of our local bunny-nut group!!!!

Quite a bit of time and work, but awful gratifying to see that people think we are pretty good experts and sources of advice! At least BL is! I just sort of did the lifting and standing around smiling and nodding my head in a positive movement!

Baxter is a wonderful teacher's aide and teacher's pet all in one. :)

What a great opportunity to get acquainted with rabbits and learn about caring for them. Excellent teachers of both the four and two-legged kinds.

Lovely! A dear friend of my sister and myself said to my sister "Well I don't know if you should get a bunny..." what with two cats, fish, and a 3 year old boy, but then she said "Well I guess with Hef's Mom, it'll be ok." Got a message from her the other day "My rabbit poops a lot is that normal?" OH BOY!

Yeah! What Jade said!
How great that the kid wanted to learn something about bunnies, not just get one and then get sick of it. Bravo to the kiddo!

BL & RG, Bunny Experts. Glad Baxter was willing to help out!

PS - Freckles lab tests came back with good results. She is fine -- attitude intact.
