Brubeck, the Pet of the Day
Name: Brubeck
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Flemish Giant Rabbit
Home: Cowichan Valley, British Columbia, Canada
   This 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.
