Exciting news--the local pet store called me today to let me know that they just got a shipment of baby bunnies! I had told them awhile back to please call me when some came in.
Minor glitch--Don is not exactly in love with this idea! When I heard from the pet store, I immediately texted Don and asked if we could get one. He came right back with "No!"
Then I called him and he basically said it was okay,but he was less than enthusiastic. So I told him the kids and I were going to go check them out
I'm not kidding--baby bunnies are about the cutest thing on the planet! They had a few different kinds--what I would call "regular-looking" bunnies that were cute and small, something called French lops that had big floppy ears and another kind called "Lionheads" that had fluffy fur that apparently grows into a mane-like fuzziness around their heads.
Although the "regular" bunnies were cute, I was much more intrigued by the exotic ones! So now I need to decide between the Lop and the Lionhead.
The French Lop was pure white with pink eyes (there's something SO cool about the pink eyes that just can't be denied!).It was the largest one there (and I thought I wanted a really small one) and seemed to have a very docile temperament. It (apparently it's impossible to tell male from female at this age) seemed to like being held and was very cuddly. Also very cute. I would say the biggest drawback to this one is that it will get quite large!
I wish I had some pics to show you--but I didn't bring my camera. But here are some examples of that rabbit breed:
TheLionheads are very cute and fuzzy and much smaller. I'm not sure how I feel about the "mane" thing--it might be cool but it might be weird! They had a couple of these at the store--they were gray and a little jumpy. Here are some pics:
So they're both cute--but in different ways! While I was at the store, I basically settled on the lop-eared one because of its personality--but they get so big! I'm not sure I want a big giant rabbit!
I think I'll go back tomorrow and look at them again--I'm sure they'll let me switch even though I already selected one.
So now I need your help--which one do you think is better/cuter? Thanks in advance for your help!
Oh, and,whichever we choose--we won't pick it up until Sunday because I need time to get the cage set up.
