Hazel, the Pet of the Day
Name: Hazel
Age: Eight weeks old
Gender: Female
Kind: Holland Lop-Eared Rabbit
Home: San Jose, California, USA
   Hazel is one of my three rabbits and most energetic of them all. I named her after a character in the novel, "Watership Down," by Richard Adams. She eats almost all the time, and when I place a bowl of food out for the three rabbits, Hazel is the one who carries the bowl away so she can have all the food. Even with eating all this food, she still maintains great shape. Every morning, we release her from our outdoor hutch, and catch her in the evening. She is always the hardest to catch, and it once took me one hour to catch Hazel. She makes funny poses at times, and licks your hand only if have food for her. She digs at every chance she can. Once she even made an eight-foot burrow. She never produced a litter, but she just likes to hide there. This is what makes Hazel so special.
