Boots, Spot, the Pet of the Day
Name: Boots, Spot

Gender: Female
Kind: Dwarf Mix, Mini Lop
Home: Columbia, South Carolina, USA
   These are my two rabbits Spot and Boots. Boots was a 24th birthday present from my boyfriend, and Spot was a spur of the minute purchase because it was love at first sight! They love to play, pose for the camera, cuddle, chase each other around and, of course, chew. They aren't particularly fussy, anything with a wire is fair game - lamps, the computer mouse, a space heater, mobile phone chargers and Playstation controllers to name but a few! They love to eat Romaine lettuce, carrots, brocoli, and occasionally bananas which are their absolute favorite. They both also cannot get enough Timothy Hay!

    Spot is the dominant one of the pair, so she dictates the rules; Boots must groom her but she doesn't have to do it back if she doesn't feel like it which is most of the time. They also like to go on walks in the garden on their leashes, and nibble on the grass and pine straw. I get many strange looks as cars drive by, but I don't care! They also allow me to give them the occasional cuddle, but both make it well known when they want to be put down! I love my rabbits, and am so glad they are a part of my life.
