Meet The Bunny
The Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival is a yearly tradition for me. And every year while I’m there, I visit the Angora Rabbits. I hold them. I pet them. I watch the owner spin their wool into yarn while the bunny snuggles on her lap. Every year I consider buying an Angora Rabbit of my own, and then reality catches up with me in time to prevent me from actually doing it. But not this year. This year I jumped in with both feet and I came home with my very own French Angora Rabbit!
Meet Gris (pronounced, “Gree”)…
His favorite activities are:
- Eating (greens, hay, pellets, you name it!)
- Exploring the property (we do this together)
- Sneaking under the deck railing into the flower beds whenever my back is turned!
- Nose/ear rubs (he chatters his teeth in a happy rabbit purr)!
Of course, he has no idea that his name is Gris since I call him “Bunny” when I talk to him. He’s very smart and actually responds to “Bunny;” hopping right over to see what’s up!
You see, this year, I realized that if I didn’t do something differently, if nothing changed, I really might forever dream about The Bunny and never get one.
I couldn’t bear that thought.
So this time when I was looking at all of the adorable Angora Rabbits, instead of thinking about why it couldn’t or shouldn’t work for me, I thought about how to make it work. And something wonderful happened! I found that reality was actually on my side for a change! I’m completely in love with my bunny, and I’m so glad I finally took the plunge!
So you’ll have to excuse me, I’m afraid, as I must go and play with my Bunny now…
Have you ever thought about getting a rabbit? Do you have a pet rabbit? We’d love to hear all about him/her!
