LaLuna the English Angora Rabbit, the Pet of the Day
Name: LaLuna
Age: Five years old
Gender: Female
Kind: English Angora Rabbit
Home: British Columbia, Canada
   Meet LaLuna, a purebred English Angora Rabbit. Her name mean "the moon" in French. What make LaLuna special is that she is unique in more ways than one. Usually, English Angora Rabbit weight around 7-7.5 pounds, but LaLuna is ten pounds, and she is one healthy bunny.

     Secondly, unlike most pet rabbits, LaLuna has a career in healthcare ... she is a Volunteer pet at our local hospital and very much a star in her own right. LaLuna brings joy, laughter and happy memories back to those who need it. Her calm and gentle nature have made her a famous volunteer. It does not matter who we visit - children, adults, the elderly - they all adore her.

     She was even once featured in her local paper. According to the article, "La Luna is a favorite on the seniors' acute care and psychiatric wards.

     "What it adds for these patients is a distraction or a comfort," said Clare O'Kelly, manager of volunteer resources at the hospital. "It takes their minds away from what is happening that may not be pleasant, and takes them away to a different place," she said.

     And she isn't just popular with patients. The hospital staff too has really taken to having La Luna visit. Not all bunnies are cut out for a job in health care, though. La Luna has an especially calm and gentle temperament."

     So LaLuna is special to many people, not just to me. I love her very much.
