Our new little bunny ...

"Baby Bella" was an early Valentines gift. I was feeling particularly sad about being finished with the baby stage of life, so DH agreed to get a new bunny. We had "Bella" , our first Lionhead rabbit ... and she was a total sweetheart. After she died, I cried for several days straight. Eventually DH bought me 3 new rabbits .. we thought that since we love the Lionhead Rabbit breed so much, we might breed them. We had 2 does and 1 buck. Unfortunately, with 3 bunnies, it was difficult to bond with them all as house pets. It got to be too much, and we sold them to a breeder.

Now that we are in a new house, and more space, we had the room again to open our hearts to a new little lionhead --- just ONE this time. So I began to look at the local ads, until I found the bunny that was a perfect fit. I called to tell the seller that we definitely wanted that bunny, and in talking with the breeder, I thought she sounded familiar. I asked "Is this A?" It was! It was the breeder who had bought our 3 lionheads last year! In fact, the baby I wanted was the daughter from our very own doe and buck we'd sold her! When we picked our new Baby Bella up, I got to see our previous little bunnies ... who were now the proud parents of quite a few litters. It made me laugh as "A" photocopied the pedigrees for me --- the same pedigrees I had given her.

So, as you can tell, we feel that Baby Bella was meant to be ours. And every day that passes just strengthens that feeling. She is so much like our first Bella, and just the world's biggest sweetheart.

Anyways, enough of the long-winded story! Here's the pictures!!! (you can click on them to see them larger!















Doesn't she remind you of a little Ewok?

She's sweet. We had rabbits when I was growing up. Our first was named Marshmallow and our second was Cupcake.
