found Happy a few weeks after Easter, from a lady who ran an animal
rescue mission for abandoned animals, when he was only about three
weeks old. It was certainly love at first sight and we adopted him
immediately! He was so very small, I tucked him under the lapel of my
coat and carried him all the way home. We have been together almost
all the time ever since! He is truly the most loving bunny and best
friend anyone could ever have.
I work out of my home and Happy keeps me company all day while I'm
working. He'll lay out at my feet by the side of my desk and relax
often doing cute rollie-pollie things. Every now and then throughout
the day Happy jumps on to my lap to give me some hugs and kisses,
melting away all the stress from my hectic work day.
When lunch time comes I'll get up and he'll run circles around my feet
(sometimes a figure 8) and then on the third time around, he'll stand
up on his hind legs for a pet, and some loving acknowledgement. He
loves to run circles around everybody, it's one of his favorite games!
Then I bring him his favorite lunch, some organic baby spinach and
carrots, with a side of fresh apple and dried apricots, and he'll
merrily munch away until he's had his fill. Then he'll entertain me
for a bit by washing his face and ears and chasing his own cute little
When I'm done with work for the day, it's our snuggle time. He lies
out on the bed beside me giving me lots and lots of kisses. He even
likes to watch TV and when I put music on he'll take hold of my hand
with his very furry little feet, stands on his hind legs and dances
with me! Really! He is so amazingly playful and affectionate people
have to see him to believe him and when they do they're absolutely
He's almost perfectly potty trained, but it's so hard to get mad when
he has a little accident because he'll just give you this face like he
knows he did something bad as if saying "I'm sorry momma." When he is
good and goes in his paper lined box he gets his all time favorite
treat, a Teddy Graham for which he jumps for joy. He is so very smart,
he always comes when I call him. When I am sad he licks the tears of
my eyes and nudges me with his little wiggly nose. Happy also enjoys
playing with his big brother Oscar, a Quaker Parrot, and his big
sister, Kitty, our cat, and he even gives his affection to our
collection of teddy bears by kissing them on their noses. When my
fiancé comes home from work Happy does this funny little high
jump and spin to let him know he's delighted that he's home.
We are glad to share the news, that we will have the honor of Happy
leading our bridal party down the aisle on our wedding day, as he is
such a very special part of our lives. Every day is a great day with
our precious little bunny we love and treasure so much. He gives us
so much bliss we just had to call him Happy!
