Junebug, the Pet of the Day
Name: Junebug
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Harlequin Rabbit
Home: Austin, Texas, USA
   Hello, my name is Junebug and I am a Harlequin Rabbit. I love to play! In this picture, I have jumped up in the crook of an old tree!

    When I was young, my name was Popo, and my person was a little boy. We were really good friends. I liked to hop on him while he did his school work and played video games. It was important to make him smile, because he was sad a lot. His mom and dad were getting a divorce. It wasn't until the day that they left me at the pound and drove away that I realized that I was getting a divorce too.

    I was rescued by the House Rabbit Resource Network, a group of nice people who help bunnies like me find new homes. It took awhile, but I finally found my forever home! Now I have not one but two great people to hop on, and they make sure that I get tons of hay, bunny food, and yummy treats like carrots, celery, kale, and Italian parsley.

    I live in the house, but during the day, unless it's too hot, I get to stay out in the yard in my pen. But my absolute favorite thing to do is run loose out of my pen! Woo hoo! Unfortunately, I only get to do it when my people are there to supervise me. I don't know why they're such grannies -- I'm four pounds of sheer toughness, can't you tell? When I'm out I love to run, leap, dance, and tear around -- and climb a tree or two!

    When my people come home from work (what's that?), I get to hop around the kitchen table when they eat dinner and try to nibble their toes. Chewing is another one of my passions and I especially like to curl up with a good book. Yum!

    In the evenings, I get petted and praised while I help my people relax and watch TV. I also enjoy spending time with my straw mat. It's like a bed that you can play with and eat too. Everyone should have one.

    If you ever decide to get a bunny, please seek out your local rabbit rescue group and give a bunny like me a second chance at love. Tell 'em Junebug sent you!
