Life shouldn't be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather, to skid in broadside, throughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly shouting..."Wow! What a ride! Thank You Lord!"

Crash Course in Bunny 101

Last Thursday Isaac brought a surprise home from work. When we heard he had a surprise the kids were elated asking over and over "Daddy, what is it?" I was thinking it was like other surprises (or treats) he has brought home before, like pan, chips or something sweet. It wasn't. I was in the kitchen cooking dinner when I heard a commotion in the other room. I dropped what I was doing to see what was going on. As I entered the room I heard Jonny say "Daddy, this is THE BEST SURPRISE EVER!" I started thinking "Uh-oh" but didn't have time to finish my thought because there before my eyes was a bunny. A cute little white fluffy bunny.

Welcome to the family, Snowball!

Now, before I go any further, I have to let you all in on my little secret (or not such a big secret)...I'm not really an animal person. Don't get me wrong, I like animals, but with the exception of horses I rather prefer liking them from a distance. This feeling has probably been perpetuated by the fact that I am allergic to a lot of animals...the worst being cats, followed by dogs and anything else that has fur. Isaac, on the other hand, along with my kids LOVE animals...especially pets. (The favorite being dogs...I think he is working up to that starting with a bunny.)

Well, OK. We've never owned a bunny. In fact, we've never had any pet. So, what do we do now? A crash course in Bunny 101. We did research, we took Snowball to a pet store where they told us he was a boy, and we started trying to track down a cage. We did find a friend who had an unused bunny hutch, but it needs some repair work and we are going to have to remodel it to make it safe for the outdoor elements. The boys LOVE Snowball and are great with him. We have a bunny leash and today they exercised him. It's so cute to watch how tender and loving they are with him. And, as I told Isaac the other night, it's a good thing Snowball is just sooo cute because how could I resist him. I have decided I might like pets after long as I don't have to hold him (sharp claws!)

I have no idea how long it is going to take Isaac to finish the hutch, and in the meantime Snowball is in a crate in the garage. I was wondering if anyone reading this blog who lives in Southern CA (I know it's a long shot) might have a rabbit hutch already made for outdoors that we might either borrow or buy (the price would have to be pretty low since Isaac has been out of work so much).

I have learned so much about bunnies but still have a lot to learn. So my question for you tonight is: do you have any bunny advice?
