The Chosen One

Photo copyright : Maggie May

I knew that the little rabbit in the picture below was the one that I really had taken a fancy to.
I picked it out of 4 photos of babies (all from the same litter) on the web site of the breeder where I bought Ash.
She had told me that there were two boys and two girls, so I was hoping that the one I really secretly liked more than the others was a doe and not a buck.
I would have loved any of them as they all were so cute, but seeing as I was the first to reserve one out of that litter, I thought I could afford to be picky and indulge myself.

I had rung round rescue centres before contacting the breeder to see if I could find a suitable dwarf rabbit to be a companion to Ash, my existing bunny. However, there were no dwarf ones available and the whole object was to get them to bond and live together in the same quarters, so I obviously was not going to bring home a huge rabbit that would toss Ash around like a football.

My son took me over to see the babies on Friday morning and I was amazed to see how much my little rabbit had grown from the original photo. Fortunately this little rabbit was a doe, so I gave her a long cuddle and paid my deposit.
Lily will be ready in two weeks to come home with me. Then the fun will begin..... getting the two rabbits to bond.


I thought you would all like to know that my husband, Harry's chemo has now been postponed for at least 3 months, possibly longer, because his recent blood tests have turned out to be unexpectedly satisfactory.
We feel it is definitely answered prayer and we will enjoy the extra time that we have been given.

Mimi said...

Wonderful news, Maggie, about your husband! You're finally getting the break you deserve!
Lily is just beautiful. I really hope that she and Ash do bond. Be careful, though- we had an awful time when we minded a friend's rabbit along with Crash- they went at it hammer and tongs, would have killed each other if hubby hadn't intervened. They were both males, and I think that was the problem. One or the other had to be locked up at all times.
Hope I haven't frightened you, but better prepared than not!
