I really can't believe four years has gone by so quickly. I have learned to cherish each and every day I have with my rabbits. It is a gift I treasure.
I love his fuzzy feet and how he is ticklish when I give him nail trims.
I love when he does his "pout" face
I love how he does a big flop on the floor and takes a nap. When a rabbit does this, they feel safe and happy.
I love how he pretends he's just going to "lick" my sewing cabinet not bite it. ;)
I have received a bunch of emails from friends telling me how much they enjoy my animal stories and to keep writing them. So, I decided I would share the post on Harrington's story from 2010.
Razzy bunny had passed away in July of that year. Razzy was friends with Sugie, who you will see in the post. She was such a sweet girl. I lost her in April of 2011. Hannah came to be Harrington's friend and live in Bunnyville in May of 2011. Also, you will see Harrington's fur looking discolored in the photos. This was from him being kept out in the sun by his previous owners.
Since Razzy's death, Sugie and I have been terribly sad. We miss him so much. When a rabbit is "bonded" to another rabbit, it can be a little bit more complicated. You see, rabbits can grieve so much that they make themselves sick and they can truly die of a broken heart. David and I kept a good eye on Sugie and I spent tons of time in the studio with her and gave her lots of attention....but....
A friend of mine told me to go visit a lady an hour away who has a bunny rescue. She had a sweet little bunny named Snoopy who looked just like Sugie. She also had another boy named Simba. Both were under a year old. A little bit of a concern for me as Sugie is 2 and baby bunnies and adult bunnies eat different stuff. I went to the rescue on August 28th. Bonnie, the lady at the rescue, got Snoopy and Simba out of their pens and put them in playpens for me to visit with them. Then out of the clear blue she says, "Oh, did I tell you about Sir Harrington?" WHAT??!!!! did you say???
"Oh" Bonnie says, "I thought I mentioned him." My heart skipped a beat and I got goosebumps. My rabbit drawing I named...the font I use (Harrington) on my patterns....Bonnie is a weaver and also does ceramics (visit her here). On each of the bunny pens in her rescue, she makes a little ornament with the bunny's name on it. I walked to the pen and saw this.
Michelle, the Bunnies and the Kitties too
