is a picture of our bunny, "King's Around Midnight" also known as
"Brubeck". He is just seven months old but almost weighs fourteen
pounds; his mom is twenty pounds and his dad is eighteen pounds, so we
expect him to get bigger.
I have had rabbits as pets for over twelve years, and while I have loved
them all, I have to say Brubeck is the best bunny ever. He is
sweet-tempered, cuddly and very people-focused. His special friend is my
husband. When my husband goes into his office, Brubeck waits by the door
until he's allowed in; then he explores and flops out on a sleeping bag,
waiting for pets.
He has his crazy times, binkying up and down the hall, running as fast
as he can. When he sees the cats he gets very excited and dances around
them, shaking his head; unfortunately the cats don't quite feel the same
way and usually try to hide from him. He's an eternal optimist though,
and has yet to learn from the swats and hisses he gets from them.
We call him "puppy" sometimes because he is so dog-like. He comes when
he's called, and he follows us wherever we go. He loves to lie on the
couch with us for cuddles. We love him very much.
