About Us
Dudley, Pippen, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dudley, Pippen
Age: 2 1/2 and 1 1/2 years old
Gender: Male
Kind: French Lop
Home: Littleton, Colorado, USA
   I got Dudley when he was six weeks old and I could hold him in the palm of my hand. Pippen came to us six months ago from a shelter where he was brought in as a stray. Since then Dudley and Pippen have become best friends and I think Pippen would be lost without Dudley. Dudley is the sweetheart and snugglier of the two. He loves to snuggle and be lazy. When he snuggles with me he purrs and sometimes even gives kisses. Pippen is very curious, snuggly when he wants to be, adventurous and is the trouble maker. When we open the refrigerator door he is always right there climbing into the refrigerator and following us around the kitchen. One time he found his way onto the kitchen table and started to eat a house plant but luckily we caught him early so he only got a couple nibbles off it.

    They get to go everywhere with me, so they are quite experienced travelers by now. I don't know what I would do without them, they make the days so much more interesting. They both love blueberries, parsley, carrots tops and enjoy spending the hot days laying on the a/c vent in the kitchen. In the picture, they got to take a trip to the mountains and play in the snow, which is another activity they love to do. They are wearing their sweaters because they were playing in the snow and didn't want to get snow clumps on their bellies. They don't like that, and they also don't like me touching their tummies to try to remove them, so the sweaters are a good compromise!
