"Next to my kibble, bok choy is the best."

Post "Salad-Time" Nap

Bunnies Like Kibble Too!
(not recommended)


Bubba
Breed: Flat-Coated Retriever MixWeight: 60 pounds
Gender: FemaleBirthday: June 28, 1990
Favorite Food: She eats Flint River Ranch Puppy and Adult Kibble, carrots, bok choy, collard greens... pretty much any vegetable that has a thick stalk and that Miss Bunny likes. Bubba started eating raw vegetables after Miss Bunny moved in—mostly because Miss Bunny liked them, but they have really helped her digestion and I highly recommend them for dogs (and bunnies).
Favorite Activities: She enjoys going to the park, eating, getting a massage, swimming, and playing Frisbee. She also enjoys warm-water therapy twice a week.
Special Skills or Responsibilities: "I know when it's 'Salad-Time' and I don't let Kim forget it!"
Story: Bubba-girl lived down the street from us for 6 years or so. We occasionally took care of her when her owners were on vacation and we became good friends. She's as sweet as they come and extremely well-behaved.

The little boy in her family became allergic to her and so we took her in on October 7, 2002. Then Mark became extremely allergic to her so she had to be an outdoor dog. We worked hard to build her a house and create an environment that was comfortable, warm, and easy for her to get around. However, she always wanted inside. Mark's allergist tested him and said that he wasn't allergic to dogs and fortunately, after about a month, Mark quit having reactions to her—it was amazing because they were quite extreme. We don't know why the problem went away, but her coat is much shinier with Flint River Ranch and we think she may be producing less dander. We're so happy to have her inside with us—and she is too. And she's happy to be where she can get at Miss Bunny's veggies!

Miss Bunny
Weight: 2 poundsGender: Female
Favorite Activities: She enjoys eating, grunting, teasing Bubba, ringing her bell, and tearing around the house (especially in the early morning). She loves to go for walks outside and doesn't protest at all when I put her harness on—she just crouches down and lets me wrap it under her chin and belly.
Special Skills or Responsibilities: She has a few tricks she'll do for pieces of carrot: ring her bell, rattle her rattle, walk on her hind legs, go through her tube, push her tube, and run to the top of her castle. And she'll roll over with a bit of prodding... we're working on that one.
Story: We found Miss Bunny while we were walking Bubba in the park on April 13, 2004 (2 days after Easter). Her face was covered with about 20 huge ticks and her lips were purple because of them. She was very weak and let Mark pick her up. It was love at first sight. The vet said that she'd probably been dumped and had been out quite a while and wouldn't have lasted much longer. (Apparently, white rabbits with red eyes aren't desirable because they appear evil.) She took to us right away and since we didn't know any better and she wasn't moving much, we just let her live in the living room. For a few weeks she wouldn't leave that room. Now she has the run of the house and sleeps under our bed at night.

In trying my best to make her happy and comfortable, I've succeeded in making her about as spoiled as possible. She likes to be petted, but will grunt and fuss at me when I stop. She took to the litterbox immediately, which really amazed us both. She's not exactly evil, but fairly ornery. Mark says she's a chip off the old block.
I thought it was interesting to learn that rabbits are classified in the order Lagomorphia, not Rodentia—they're not rats!
Breed: Netherland Dwarf (Albino)
