Lop, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lop
Age: Four months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Lop-eared lionhead rabbit
Home: Tokyo, Japan
   "Is that a dragon?" "No, she is a rabbit." She is yawning. She can run very fast, but very quietly.

    When we met Lop at the pet shop, one side of her ear was burnt by a heater, so the tip of the ear had some marks and no hair on the tip.

    "Are you OK?" we asked her, but she didn't care about her ear and wanted get out of the cage.

    We decided take her home. When she got home, she looked very glad. She ran and ran the whole evening.

    Very soon she knew that her name is "Lop" and where she should pee. But if she loves a certain place, she pees there to mark it as a favorite place. One day she did that to my bag! She knows that she should not, though, so hasn't done that again.

    Every day is her field day. She runs at a high speed, up and down the stairs. She can jump over a high fence without needing to run up! She loves to be kissed. When I kissed her nose or eyes, she moves her jaw, which is how a rabbit purrs. She is a very sweet rabbit.

    Now her burnt ear has healed over, and her field day will continue forever with us!
