is my pet Rabbit, Keiko. His full name is Keiko Chue Eastman, he
is a Dwarf Crossbred Rabbit (Russian/White-tipped black).
I love Keiko very much; he's a very important part of my entire
family's life. My whole life I've heard stories about my parents'
rabbits, and the amazing adventures they've had together. As a little
girl I used to beg for my own rabbit, but to no avail, because of my
older sister's serious allergic reaction to rabbits. Finally, one
day, my sister left for college. By that time I was eleven years old

He might not be a big, lovable, dog, but it makes no difference. I'll
never regret bringing him home that summer night. He runs around our
house with a spirit like no others, and when I see his little nose
pushing through a crack in my door, it makes me smile. He lies down

even if he has to stay on a leash to avoid running away if
My father jokingly calls him a peabrain, but Keiko acts like he knows
everything! (Although we all know he's not really reading when he
turns the pages of T.V. Guide with his mouth). I know, though, that
he's always obedient and never bites anyone, even small children that
stick their fingers in his nose. All in all, he's one of my best
friends, even if he can't say so. Visit
