My mom's new bunny

When we were kids, my cousins bought the cutest little bunny and named her Esther. My sister and I decided we needed bunnies too. We each got a bunny and named them Simon and Sophie. One died a couple of years later and a few months ago the other died. It had been living with my mom and she was rather sad when it died. Lexsea and i decided she needed another pet. We considered a cat because my mom used to have a couple of cats, but then we decided a bunny would be much easier for her to handle. So yesterday Lexsea came to town and I tood the afternoon off of work so we could get her...

...this adorable little bunny. you can't tell if it's male or female yet but it has been given the name Hunny Bunny by my mom. It's a dwarf lop eared rabbit and probably won't get over 5-6lbs.

Here's another shot of it in it's little purple igloo. It was the first of the bunnies I picked up out of the pen. There was also a cute black colored one with stubby little ears.

How cute!!!! I wish I had a bunny, instead I have a hyperactive puppy name Mac hehehehe. There are many trips to the dog park in my future! I have a question for you? What do you think of the new yarn shop in Coralville?

it is seriously cute!

*sighs* I'm not so sure that it's going to stay lop though. It sort of looks like only one ear is lopping?!
