Dusty, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dusty
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Dwarf Lop-ear rabbit
Home: Sydney, Australia
   From the first moment I saw her, I knew that Dusty was the one, and even though I wasn't seriously planning on buying a rabbit at the time, I am extremely lucky that I did.

    Dusty has brought an ocean of joy and love into my life. Every day, I rush home from work just to see her - and I am usually greeted by a mass of torn up newspaper, and a little head poking out from underneath the wreckage! I've lost count of how many toys I have bought her, all of which she ignores. Seems like the best present that you can offer her, is a piece of torn up paper, which she bites hold of and runs in circles with it in her mouth when she thinks no one is watching! She keeps us entertained with her little binkies, but she loves to be tickled or is quite content on sniffing around the house.

    Dusty is very health conscious and will go crazy for oats, chinese greens, almonds and apple. It's been a battle to try and litter train her, and although she is usually good, there is the odd slip up - which occurs when she is really excited, or when she wants to let you know that she is not happy.

    Dusty has her favorite places in the house, which are mainly the places that she knows she is not allowed to go, e.g. behind the computer (where there is a mass of wires) or trying to tunnel her way into our bedrooms! Dusty has well and truly become a member of the family, and she makes me feel humble each time I am around her. Thank you Dusty, for the joy you bring to our lives!
