Kind: Dwarf Lop Eared Rabbit

   Dillon was a little poppet and made everyone who met him laugh! He had a cheeky and sweet personality and would follow me around the house like a little shadow, always hoping for a treat - his favorite were raisins and yoghurt drops... He loved lots of attention and would jump onto my lap if he thought that he was being ignored or if there was tasty human food around, and would display his disgust by picking up his own food bowl and throwing it to one side if he wasn't happy with its contents!

    He was very intelligent, and although hated having a bath, would put up with it as it meant a nice groom with his little brush afterwards! He loved the freedom of the garden and would race around at top speed and then flop stretched out in the sun. He also enjoyed his holidays at my parents' house, while I had my holidays.

    He was so brave towards the end. He lost his battle with his health in April and at the age of four and a half died. Even now he's gone I keep expecting to hear his little footsteps hopping around the sofa to see me... this is my tribute for him.
