Bunny NOT

Grenville talked here about the bunny we saw when we visited our local Tractor Supply. He was really a cutie and a good photo subject. And we both agree that it's better to remain pet-less.

I have to laugh. My daughter, at about age 10, convinced my Dad, at about age 78, to get her a bunny. The bunny was aptly named Hazel ala Watership Down. Now, where to keep this bunny? My Dad, at about age 78, went to the hardware store with my daughter, at about age 10, to buy materials to build a bunny hutch. They bought all the materials and built the hutch in my Dad's garage. They built a really nice hutch. Lots of room for Hazel. In fact, so much room for Hazel that the hutch was too big to get into the car trunk to bring home ( that's Catherine's home, my home, Hazel's home). So I, at about age..., no, never mind about that, rented a U-Haul to bring the hutch across town to our home. Oldest son, at about age 19, rode along with daughter and me since it was the first time I had driven a truck. It was the last, too, except for our SUV much later, of course. Anyway, that $15 bunny (Hazel) cost another $65 for the hutch and $40 for the truck.

Maybe it's a good thing you passed on the bunny.

Hi Beatrice...ooooh sweet!! I also at times have been tempted to have a bunny rabbit, but to get someone to take care of my 2 Kitties when I'm gone is enough!!
Tell Grenville he needs a pet like a hole in the head!! lol

Cute pictures of the bunny rabbit! We were in Tractor Supply not too long ago and saw chicks. One chick in particular looked intently at me. I didn't have my camera with me; wish I had!

Aaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Yes, having animals that rely on you is a responsibility and put a crimp in taking off for weeks at a time. Having one with "special needs" means you don't even get to go overnight. Or, like a friend, either he or his wife has to stay home to babysit their geriatric dogs. An hour is the most they can leave the house together.
BUT, I would not give up my little guys for any trip, not even Maine.

Amazing how a small cuddly creature can grow into a project of gigantic proportions, LOL

i enlarged the photo to check out this adorable face and i must say i can NOT understand how you walked away from it. great collage. you brought a fond memory to mind that was NOT a fond memory 40 years ago. daddy took by 2 boys, age 3 and 5 with him to the feed and seed store. he came home with 2 baby chicks. do you know how fast they become BIG CHICKS as in chickens? so what to do with the grown chickens since we lived in the city. we had a friend that had a chicken farm, she volunteered to take the chickens. we did the story up good by saying how happy they would be with other chickens for company. little did they know. the same daddy brought home a bunny a year later. then i said not so nicely Stop

That "is" a cute bunny. Have never seen one quite like that.

Good choice to remain petless -- at least bunny-petless.

I do like rabbits in the wild, I saw many when I lived and worked in Gothenburg every morning when i biked to work. But I really don´t like them any closer to me :-)Once bitten as they say :-)

Have a great day now!
Christer.

Thanks everyone for the comments and your own bunny stories, Lois and Sandra. As several of you mentioned, pets of any type are a responsibility and one which we would rather not have right now. And, it wasn't just the rabbit we would have been buying, but the cage, food, supplies . . . the photo memories are a lot less effort!
