Sure, this blog may be about me, Fluffy McFluffersons, Big Tough Lop Extraordinaire and all of my bunny misadventures. But sometimes someone else steals the show and I feel compelled to step back and let them get all the attention. And this is one of those times.
There is no doubt I am a very lucky bunny to have the family that I do. And this week I am very proud of someone very special to me. My Dad. Not only does my Dad let me chew all his cotton shirts beyond recognition, but he also loves bunnies to an amazing degree. Two weeks ago, a friend of his at work brought in three baby cottontails that he found huddled under his truck in a parking lot. Knowing my dad loves bunnies, he figured he'd know what to do. Dad brought them home and after one night with us, took them to a wildlife rehabber. She took them in, fed them well and kept them safe until they were old enough and strong enough to be on their own. Then Dad (with Mom in tow) picked them up and released them back into the wild.
Although Mom and Dad would LOVE to have a cottontail as a pet, they know the best thing for them is to live their life as the wild animal they are. So they felt very lucky to have been able to help these bunnies and set them free, back to Mother Nature and a happy cottontail life! We introduce to you Winken, Blinken and Nod....
My Dad is the best. He has the biggest heart, and the best cotton shirts to chew. I love you Dad!
