Howard has a trusting spirit..

as you can see in this photo of him relaxing on his back while being held in my arms.
Howard takes a break...
Howard came to Heartland as a result of a call from a caring person at the OKC animal shelter. He had been found in a box that someone had dumped in a parking lot.

He is probably about two years old and appears to have some balance and/or neurological problems. His hopping and sitting is affected to the point that a senior Heartlander has dubbed him "Mr. Wobbles". He sometimes falls over when he is grooming or sitting up but he either catches himself as the fall begins or he bounces right back up. He is one of the most exuberant beings you could ever hope to meet. He is friendly you can see in the pic above...very trusting and relaxed.

This pic lets you see that he is an extremely handsome fellow and since he hasn't been neutered yet...he has an eye for the ladies and gleefully approaches any and all females he can. When he is running free he will pursue them with amazing energy but his balance difficulties make it virtually impossible that he ever can catch any of the girls...but he keeps on trying.
Howard is gloriously handsome...
He is one of the most energetic buns ever out at Heartland, when he is allowed out for some free-range time he is working at digging, chasing women or just visiting every bunny in the vicinity. It is impossible not to smile when you're around him.
Dig, dig, dig...
Heartland and even the whole planet earth is enriched by Howard being here...he is truly a treasure and a joy. Thank you Howard, for being you!

I love Howard- I had a dutch who was bit by a mosquito & itched/bit himself bloody...pulled fur off trying to itch -took to er vet-went septic-long story short ended up with neuro problems... trouble w/paws kinda splayed- hard to clean himself because of it- observe him & we adapted lifestyle for him-he slept in a hammock-took pressure off feet in various other ways...needed help keeping bottom clean so we made pads in hammock & day bed area-he had a wee wagon in the day. BUT he was wonderful like your Howard. Just watch because off at times--brain injurys/head trauma need to be watched.
