Check out our newcomer: barely arrived at Heartland, he is already a movie star! And rightly so - Gabe is a wonderful, lively, and high-spirited bunny boy and sweet as can be. I don't need to tell y'all that we are - as always - way over capacity, but Gabe's story made us frantically search for a possibility to take him in. As last year's Easter Bunny, he was no longer wanted, and, thus, this teenage boy so full of spirit, was confined to a small, little cage. Now, whenever he gets to play outside at Heartland, he is doing bunny dances and binkies, shaking his ears and racing in the big playpen, making it a joy to watch him.
Now Gabe is just waiting to get neutered and is, then, ready to find a forever family.
One fine day not long ago, we decided to set Dodger (the one ... uh ... on top) into the playpen inside the North Warren (where Heartland's special needs bunnies live) to let him play. At the same time, Thymus was free-ranging in the warren. He came up to the playpen, parked in front of it, and just stared at Dodger. Did he remember that they had been cage neighbors before we "rearranged" the warren? If so, the memories must have been pleasant ones, because when Jeannie came into the warren later that day, Dodger's playpen was empty (who would have thought the boy could jump so high?????). When she looked around, she found the two boys happily and peacefully cuddled next to each other in the corner. The boys have bonded each other and are inseparable ever since. WAY TO GO, BOYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There was some very pretty swiss chard at the grocery store the other day, so I picked some up to see if the boys would like it, since they had never tried it before. As I was washing it, I peeked around the corner and there was T waiting in the hallway. He was so cute just sitting there, that I let him have the first taste.
