Bodhi, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bodhi
Age: Six and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Dwarf Rabbit
Home: New York City, New York, USA
   This is my bunny, Bodhi, with whom I have had the pleasure to spend the last almost seven years. He's a warm, funny, interesting, sweet, temperamental, spoiled but most of all loved rabbit.

    There is much that can be said about this little guy, after all we've spent a great deal of time together, but to begin, he was a gift from a friend. When I brought him home to my mom, sister and father, we had no idea what to do with him. None of us had ever thought of having a rabbit as a pet, but he became and remains a wonderful star and bright spot in our lives. He likes to eat, gallop down the hall for food, cuddle and groom, sit on our couch for a rest, and being naughty (attacking our house plants, our shoes, any stray piece of paper, jumping onto the dining room chairs and table, assisting with laundry). If I hadn't lived through his rambunctious youth, I would still think that he was a young bunny because he's still a very active guy. He's not had any major health issues and remains in excellent health today. He's currently dorming with me and my husband but is sorely missed by my mother.

    The most important thing that I want to share is how much we care for the Bodh. I'm not sure how he feels, but I could not imagine a time without him. Obviously, he's aging and his time with us grows short but I hope that this makes the time that we do have left with him that much more special. No other animal could ever take his place. He is truly precious to me. He's a champ and a good friend and sweetheart! Enjoy your pets everyone!
