Eeyore, the Pet of the Day
Name: Eeyore
Age: Six years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Holland Lop Rabbit
Home: Elmira, New York, USA
   This little guy is a goofball. He is named Eeyore not only because of his slight resemblance to the donkey, but because of how stubborn he can be. When this little guy doesn't want to do something he'll put his hind feet right out in front of him and flop down just like Eeyore. When I got him he was only a few weeks old and the runt of the litter. Now he is very healthy and high spirited. He follows me everywhere and always hops up in my lap.

    What really makes this little guy special is what happened to him just a few weeks ago. He fell and hit his face on some cement and ended up breaking both his front teeth. We took him to the vet's office where he was given some pain killers then he was put under to have his teeth cut off. For about two weeks he ate pretty much nothing but baby food and some soft fruits. Now his teeth are growing back and he can eat his favorite willow branches and veggie sticks. To me Eeyore will always be the cutest, sweetest rabbit.
