||One year old|
||Netherland Dwarf mix|
is the sweetest rabbit you will every meet! He was adopted when he
was seven weeks old and ever since then he has been working on becoming a
certified therapy rabbit. After many evaluations and tests Harley became
the only certified therapy animal in Vermont! Harley has visited nursing
homes and even a school and he has brought joy and happiness to all of the
people who he has met.
Harley is a very stylish rabbit! He has a flame print diaper that he wears
when he goes on therapy visits and when he runs around the house. He also
has a small dog parka that he wears when he is outside on the way to visits
when it is cold out. When he wore his clothes for the first time, he wasn't
too impressed but he has learned not to let them slow him down.
Harley is a very small dwarf rabbit who weighs only three pounds. Even
though he is small it does not stop him from playing with his other
friends, a dog and two cats. He loves to cuddle up with the dog on a bed
and rest and he also enjoys tormenting the cats by chasing them. When he is
relaxed the cats will come up and groom the top of his head, which is very
sweet to watch. Sometimes the dog will try to give him kisses, but her
tongue is bigger than his head, so he gets more of a bath than kisses!
Harley is very active and lively when he is at home, but he is very good
about being relaxed and calm when he is on visits, even if people pet him a
little too roughly. Somehow he knows when to behave and when he can let
loose and be wild. He loves to climb and explore and it is not uncommon for
him to spring about and do little leaps in mid air. When it is warm out, he
like to go for walks in the yard on his leash. Harley's favorite activities
are playing catch with paper balls, exploring his surroundings, chewing
apple sticks and visiting people. His favorite snacks are lettuce, carrots,
celery leaves, parsley and bananas. He does not really like cabbage and broccoli, though.
Harley has not only brought joy to the people he has visited, but also to
me. He is very good at cheering me up and being there for a cuddle when I
need one. Harley is the perfect rabbit and I could not ask for anything
more. He is such a special guy and I am so proud of everything he has done.
