Show and Tell Friday - More Bunnies!

I guess you could say that I have a fetish for Bunnies! It all started when I was about 8. My parents got us a New Zeeland White Rabbit for Easter. My younger brother named her Mrs. Wings. Well, she was "with bunnies" and had a litter of adorable babies - I was in love.

When I was pregnant with Michael, I wanted to do his nursery in a Peter Rabbit theme. Ron surprised me with this adorable Peter Rabbit Lamp.

A friend from work gave me this collection of Beatrix Potter stories - Michael loves them and we read one just about every night. I think his favorite is the Tale of Jemima Puddle Duck.

When Michael was born, a dear friend's mother gave us this adorable Peter Rabbit set - dish, bowl and cup.

I always loved Bunnies, and was blessed to have this little cutie in my/our lives. This is CocoBunny. I had her for almost 9 years. These photos are of her when I just brought her home. She was found on the "mean streets" of Chicago, we think someone got her for Easter and then let her go. A friend at work found her and was going to take her to a pet shop...once I caught sight of those huge, floppy ears, I was hooked. I took her home in a box on the Metra Train! She was a great bunny. I'll honor her with her own post later. Have a great Friday and weekend everyone!

This is such a great show&tell. I love the Bunnie. I recently read The Magician's Assistant and there was a pet Bunnie in the story. I wondered if it was possible to housebreak one for real..The only pet rabbits I ever saw were in cages--so-o sad.
Thanks for sharing.

Mama Bear,

Thanks for commenting on my post. Coco was housebroken. She used to go on paper when she was out running around. I only let her out to run when I was there because little bunnies like to chew. I had a few remote controls that had the raised numbers or controls! When we moved to our new house, she would hop around and only went potty in her cage!
