Bootsie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bootsie
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Rabbit
Home: Vermont, USA
   Bootsie is a joy in our lives. We currently have no children, so she is our child. She lets us know that she is happy when we come home because she does her 'happy bunny dance.' During this dance, she runs around fast, kicking her feet up in the air, and shaking her little head.

    Here she is relaxing with her ball that she pushes around with her nose, and her hay which she eats a lot of. She also loves to jump on the couch with us and check out what kind of food we're eating, as well as jumping into our laps and chilling for a few minutes before she gets 'busy' again. We got Bootsie when she was six weeks old. It was an Easter gift to ourselves. She was named Bootsie because of her front feet. The white part kind of looked like boots. She is also only five pounds, which is the dwarf breed in her. She is just the right size for her living space, which gets bigger each night when we come home and let her 'run free.'

    She enjoys her apple treats, as well as her veggies (parsley, lettuce, and other things). She also loves to get her back rubbed, but she can't stand getting her toe nails clipped. It's been hard, but she's starting to warm up to it. Bootsie is such a joy and we hope she lives a long time. We truly don't know what we would do without her.
