About Us
Bosco, Thumper, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bosco, Thumper
Age: Nineteen months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Holland lops
Home: Pequannock, New Jersey, USA
   We picked up Bosco and Thumper on February 16th when they were only eight weeks old and their ears were still straight up in the air. I really wanted to get some lop rabbits since I already had a dwarf at home. We contacted a local breeder who said that she had two girls left in the most recent litter, if I was interested.

    We had to wait about three more weeks to pick them up and they were so tiny!! We brought them home and they have lived in the same cage ever since, and they are the nicest little girls with great personalities. Thumper is the boss and Bosco is the explorer!

    After they run around the house for a while they both just plop down (like in the picture) and relax for a bit. They are big girls with very big appetites. They just love to eat!! They get their pellets but they love special lettuces and parsley and once a week they get their favorite, a slice of banana. Rabbits do not digest sugar well, so we don't give them much more banana than that, but they sure enjoy that treat!

   We love having them around and look forward to many happy years.
