Yoko Ono, the Pet of the Day
Name: Yoko Ono
Age: Five months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Lop Rabbit
Home: Lakeland, Florida, USA
   When I got Yoko I was told that he was a dwarf rabbit, but I'm not sure if he actually is because he keeps growing! Yoko is a very stylish, affectionate bunny with a mischievous side. He is often found napping under my desk or shredding shopping bags. His favorite treats are peanut butter balls covered with sesame seeds, with a peanut center.

    Yoko is my very first bunny and I got him from PetLand in the Lakeland Mall. Yoko seemed to be the most laid back... he didn't hop away when you went to pet him. He likes to play follow the leader. He'll notice me following him and then the role switches and he follows me around. He loves to chew on my tennis shoes and kick them around. Yoko is very affectionate and loves to be cuddled. He licks me so much, you'd think he was a puppy! He'll sit for hours if you stroke his forehead.

    I'm an art student at Florida Southern College, and the day we left for Thanksgiving break I had to take him to my drawing class because I couldn't go back to the dorm because they were locking it up... My class loved him! He was very sociable that day. He hopped around the table sniffing everyone and got his forehead rubbed. Then he laid down and bathed himself. Last night Yoko was running in the living room at full speed and then he would slide into me on the linoleum. He did it several times, but then he hopped in his cage for a drink, came back out and laid next to my feet under my desk. All that running wore him out!
