||Two and a half year old|
is my rabbit, "So What About That Sam." Sam is a
Jersey Wooly doe. She is a house rabbit. That is to say she rules the
house and allows our family to live there with her.
Sam is a great rabbit, very laid back. She goes with us anywhere that
rabbits are allowed. We put a harness on her, attach it to the
seatbelt and she rides in the car with us. One night I was driving my
daughter to a friend's house and we had to go through a police
roadblock where they were checking seatbelts. The officer looked in
the window and asked "Is everyone bucked up?" I said
"Yes, even the rabbit." He was so intrigued by the rabbit
sitting on my daughter's lap wearing her harness that he called over
his partner and they made all the traffic in both directions stop and
wait while they admired Sam.
Sam is a fairly lazy rabbit, preferring lounging around to playing.
When she gets in the mood however, she can really move. This is
usually when she is just finished with some mischief (like snipping
through all our telephone cords). She does like to make noise. She
plays with plastic baby keys, rips up my junk mail for me, rings a
bell when I am too slow getting her morning treat and thumps the
floor when my daughter and I argue. Of course, she does all kinds of
cute bunny things, washing her face and ears, standing up on her back
feet, yawning and stretching, and jumping straight up in the air just
for the fun of it. I am very lucky as Sam is a very affectionate
rabbit, who loves to give kisses. If you want to see more about Sam,
