Chessie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Chessie
Age: Seven and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Netherlands Dwarf
Home: Maryland, USA
   Chessie is a male Netherlands Dwarf, his coloring is called Smoked Pearl Martin. In addition to his timothy and rabbit food, he enjoys his banana and cereal in the morning. During the day he will ask for a potato chip, pretzel, carrot, apple slice, blue berry, carrot, and lettuce leaf. Of course all these items are given in moderation and merely represent a list of items that Chessie enjoys.

    Chessie is a house rabbit and has the run of a designated number of rooms. He also knows that he can only eat on his mat, and if he is given an item of food off the mat, he will return to the mat with the item in his mouth. His cage is only for sleeping and is only closed up during the night. He loves to do the bunny dance on the back porch and the deck and will also welcome being picked up and petted at any time. He is known to walk up to one while we are sitting and pawing at our mid-calf so that he is acknowledged. Chessie is certainly a one of a kind of bunny.
