    One thing about bunnies. Your dog will eat their poop and think it's dog treats.

    When I was in Germany they had a parade of “eatin” animals during October fest

    I swear there was a guy carrying a rabbit about that size, biggest rabbit I ever saw

    On a related note I actually ate rabbit for the first time there

    A friend’s daughters raised those Netherlands Dwarf rabbits for 4-H. Those were somewhat affectionate, but they were not house animals. Friends have waxed over rabbits, but I do not see the lure. As others have noted and chewing, biting, scatological machines. OTOH, tasty....

    I try to discourage rabbits in our yard because they like to eat the same kinds of things we like to eat, and we have a huge garden that they think is their private buffet.

    However, a friend of a friend keeps pet rabbits, and she saves all of the rabbit manure for us. It is mixed in with straw bedding. We put it in our compose pile, and over the course of a year it becomes a rich, dark and fertile soil that we use in the gardens. It really is amazing and allows us to grow all kinds of fruits and vegetables without the use of commercial fertilizer.

    The post yesterday of Blondie performing in Glasgow on Hogmanay made me reserve her autobiography from the local library. Now this one about bunnies has me wishing I'd met her back when she worked in the Manhattan Playboy Club. :twisted:

    They are horrible pets.
    We’ve had a couple over the years.
    I strongly advise you to look into a dog or cat.

    Had one when I was a kid but was afraid of it because it was a biter. I do like them fried though.

    I often see the bunnies hanging around outside our house, they seem to be quite timid, and apparently don't like direct sunlight.

    I remember them being a little cheaper when we used to buy them for our red tailed boa constrictor.

    Might be cheaper if you buy the whole animal, but this is ground. Organic, pasture-raised and all the assorted other stuff my dog cares deeply about ;)
