Dewey, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dewey
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Rabbit
Home: Essex, UK
   This Dewey, my four-year-old Rabbit! Originally when we bought him, he was mistaken for a Netherland Dwarf and a female, only to discover after our first trip to the vets that he was actually a boy! As you can clearly see from the photos (by ears and size), he is definitely not a dwarf either! He's a fat lump that loves treats! From my guess alone I would say that he is actually an English/Dutch cross, but we've never been entirely sure. His favorite foods have to be spinach, green beans, rabbit "chocolates" and nuts, and dandelions of course.

    Dewey's a very particular rabbit, having those off days like all of us. Some days he'll have a strop for absolutely no reason. He'll be stamping his feet on the hutch, ripping the newspaper up and pushing his bowl over. This happens especially if he can't see out of his hutch or doesn't get a treat when he wants! We also think he's a little OCD too! If you move something out of place he'll know, and nudge it right back to where he liked it! He does not always like to be lifted out of his hutch either, and hates being handled most days. But the majority of the time, he can be a sweetheart. He'll know when you just want a cuddle and someone to talk to, and on those days he'll let you pick him up with no fuss, and cradle him to sleep! One of the worst times I can remember was when my mum went into the dining room. She went to turn a lamp on and she screamed! She'd been electrocuted! When we looked, someone had chewed through the wires ... the little saboteur! He was just lucky it was turned off when he chewed it! So on the whole, he's a very snobbish rabbit, and likes causing trouble! But we love him anyway, and his funny little quirks! :)
