is Jazz (the black one) and Josie (the funky colored one). They are
both very special because we have been through a lot together.
We got Jazz when she was only six weeks old with Poppy, who unfortunately
passed away after a week because she was very ill when we got her. We have
such a special bond that I just have to call her name and she will come
running to me wherever she was. She loves mini eggs around Easter and she
could sit there for hours munching away on the other shell and then
licking the chocolate. We don't let her have many, as sugar is not very
good for bunnies, but she loves it when she gets one as a special treat.
She is a very affectionate rabbit and will trust anyone and anything.
We got Josie about six months after we got Jazz as a friend to keep Jazz
company while I was away at work. Because my bunnies like their own space
they each have their own hutches and they play together in the garden
along with my guinea pigs Scully and BB. Josie is a very special bunny
because she is my three-legged bunny. She was not always like that. About
nine months after we got her we found a lump in her foot. After taking her to
the vets, they found that she had a broken leg. After have her leg
operated on she was in a cast for four month and stuck indoors as we could
not let her out in case she broke it again. Eventually, I think out of
frustration, Josie broke her leg again and the vet advised of another
operation, I could not stand the thought of her going through it all again
so we decided to have them amputate her leg. She is now a carefree bunny
and she runs round like a nutter. They have a good time hopping around the
garden together during playtime, and I was lucky to get a picture when
they both stopped for a second!
I love my bunnies very much I would not even think about life without
them. They have brought great joy into our lives and would recommend
rabbits to any one.
