Benny, the Pet of the Day
Name: Benny
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Lop Eared Rabbit
Home: Avon, Ohio, USA
   My name is Benny Bunny. I am a Lop-Eared Bunny and I was born in August of 2005. My Mommy has had many rabbits over the years but she says I am the smartest and the sweetest.

    Since my human brother, Mike, moved out, I get to stay in his bedroom. I have a bed to sit on and I spend a good part of my day looking out the window as I sit on the bed. From my second story window, I can see all the comings and goings of the neighborhood. I hop around my bedroom during the day, and play with my many toys. I play catch with mommy; she rolls the plastic balls toward me and I pick them up in my mouth and roll them back. Mommy also made me a rabbit warren with some empty boxes and a blanket. We play peek-a-boo a lot, mommy and I. I always see her silly face staring into my warren. Hee Hee. At night mommy says its bedtime and I hop into my cage for the night. Mommy makes me salads, which I love. She mixes dandelions, marigolds, apples, carrots, parsley, celery, strawberry tops and my favorite, peaches in a bowl. I love peaches. Mommy buys them just for me. I also love Cheerios.

    My tummy was upset for a bit and I had to go to the doctor, who gave me medicine. He told Mommy to buy me fresh timothy hay to munch on all day long. Not the kind you get from a pet store, but from a farm. So mommy called my Auntie Kim and she got the fresh hay just for me. Thanks, Auntie Kim! "Munch, munch, munch!" Well I am going to be hopping along. If you are ever in Avon, Ohio and you see a bunny looking out the window, it's me, Benny Bunny.
