KISS, the Pet of the Day
Name: KISS
Age: Deceased. One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Dwarf Hotot, Rabbit
Home: North Eastern, Indiana, USA
   My pet is KISS. I got him when he was only six weeks old. He was all white with black around his eyes. He had seven legs. Not legs as in body parts, but winnings. There has to be at least five rabbits and three exhibitors in the class. Getting a leg on a dwarf hotot is very hard because they are so rare. He was a grand champion. I love my KISS. He died the day after Thanksgiving. He suffered from a heart attack.

    KISS only weighed one pound and fifteen ounces, and he always won. Everywhere we went. This is not why he was my favorite rabbit. He loved to be cuddled. He loved everybody he met. All of the other breeders thought he was adorable. He had such a great attitude about life. He was always happy. He didn't spray like bucks are known to do. He never bit anyone. I named him after the band, KISS because of the black around his eyes. But after a while he was KISS because he was so sweet and gentle like a kiss is supposed to be. When people visited our rabbitry, they always went straight to his cage. Everybody handled him, and he always wanted to come out and play. I miss him and so do my family, friends, and fellow breeders.

    In loving memory of KISS.
