About Us
Thumper, the Pet of the Day
Name: Thumper
Age: Four months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Dwarf Rabbit
Home: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
   Thumper is a smart little bunny with quite a personality. His best friend is the family dog, with whom he likes to play tag. His other favorite sports include running figure eights through the living room and leaping and twisting in the air. He loves most leafy green vegetables, but makes his preferences well known. He house trained himself by the time he was a week old and loves to come out of his hutch to play. Thumper knows and responds to his name and other simple commands, but often chooses to ignore the word "no."

    He loves to eat biscuits, sweet bread, apples, oranges, watermelons, grapefruits, in particular my note papers and tissue papers! He will topple the rubbish bin and then search for tissues to eat! He doesn't like outdoor activities. He loves to sleep in my bed. He loves taking a bath and he enjoys warm water flowing on his body. He loves to hide himself in some dark and cool places. When he is hungry, he will come to us and scratch our feet to ask for food. He loves to drink water very much.

    Anyway, what makes Thumper special is his independence and self-confidence. When I rub my chin on the top of his head and can hear him grinding his teeth in pleasure, it makes my day. If I'm really lucky, he will lick my nose to say thanks for being a great Mom. He's very spoiled by me. I take Thumper out in the yard everyday to run around and hippity hop across the grass, nibbling as he goes.
