Bunny Rabbits!

Hello my faithful friends of the interwebs! I hope your Monday hasn't been too bad. Mine hasn't been too shabby!
This time of year, there are always lots of bunnies at the shelters. This is because lots of people think they are a good idea to give as Easter gifts, but soon realize they are too much work. If you didn't already know, Skye fosters animals, so there are always lots of critters in addition to our pets. After every Easter, we always have four or five rabbits around for a few weeks until people adopt them. Every year my brother and I have begged Skye to keep one, but every year it's been the same story; "We already have too many permanent pets" or "You guys will lose interest and I'll end up scooping more poop" or "The dogs wouldn't be able to leave it alone" and on and on and on. Well, this year, Takao and I could tell something was different. This year, Skye fell in love with this one little bunny.

Today was so warm, I decided to take our new little friend outside to play in the yard.

Isn't he super cute? 

I watched him hop around in the green grass.

He peeked at me over a little tuft.

I walked over and gently picked him up.

He's so soft and cuddly! His floppy little ears are so long compared to the rest of his body. He reminds me so much of the Velveteen Rabbit.

However, my little lop-eared friend does not yet have a name. Currently, I'm trying to decide between Percy and Benedict Cumberbatch, but what do you think? Do you have any suggestions?
This has been Dani, dabbling with springtime and rabbits. Over and out!


  1. Percy is a good name!

    Andrea and Lily

  2. Benedict Cumberbatch is the BEST name :D

  3. After a lot of thinking and trying out of different names, I've decided that he shall be titled Benedict Cumberbatch, and shall be called Benny for short. ^_^
