isn't special about Miz Sophie Marie?! Sophie is my first bunny
and she's a never-ending miracle! I bought Sophie from a Pet Shop -
not the best place, I know - but it was love at first sight! (Also, I
think they were trying to pass her off as snake food!) Little did I
know that Miz Sophie was very sick. At first, Sophie would not
drink from her water bottle; turns out she didn't know how! Likewise,
I had to teach her bunny things to eat! (She was eating her bedding
instead of her food.) The vet believes she was taken away from her
mommy too soon and therefore didn't know the "bunny" things
to do. At one point in time, the vet gave me a less than 40% survival
rate for Sophie. But my miracle girl pulled through!
I suppose, after saving her life, she was only returning the favor as
she helped pull me out of depression. During this time, when she was
let out of her cage to play, she never left my side. She would
sit in my lap or lay down beside me or sit at my feet, but not once
did she leave me alone!
Sophie is a funny rabbit. She hates socks and will nip your
feet when you wear them. She "terrorizes" our boxer, Sara.
(Hard to believe that a 60 pound dog is terrified of a five pound
bunny!) She loves to tunnel underneath the covers. She knows
the rattle of the treat bag by heart and will come running when she
hears it. Pineapple juice and parsley are her favorite goodies. She
will also stop everything and watch the Disney movie
Hercules when it comes on (that Pegasus is such a hottie, isn't he?).
Sophie is full of kisses and cuddles. And to all you single bucks out
there, sorry but Miz Sophie has an on-going love affair with my Eeyore
slipper! When I first brought her home, she weighed 0.4 pounds. She is
now five pounds of healthy, hopping, mischief and I wouldn't dream of
having it any other way!
