||New Zealand White rabbit|
||Newport, Ohio, USA|
Buck is our pure white New Zealand White rabbit, with pink eyes. We are
not sure of his age, so we just tell everyone he's our senior buck (male
rabbits are bucks, females are does), and that's how he got his name, too.
He's also named after "Uncle Buck" the movie, as he's a pretty large boy. But
don't let his size fool you, he's not like some rabbits you meet at shows.
Uncle Buck is special because he is gentle with children, they can hold him or
pet him and he lets them. He is gentle natured and sweet. Even the youngest
children, who still need to learn what "gentle" means, can pet Uncle Buck, and
he has never nipped even one of them even if they tug on an ear. This makes
him a very rare and very special rabbit to us, and we all love him!
