Guinevere Gretchen Grigoryev

Yesterday my friend Heather brought me an awesome present--our family's first pet! Meet Guinevere, a 1 pound 2 ounce holland lop bunny--i.e. an adorable ball of the softest fur I've ever felt with floppy ears and giant goofy back feet. 

She was so chill all day yesterday, sitting on my chest while we chatted and throngs of chubby kid hands and exclamations of, "She's so CUTE!" assailed her from all sides. 

Last night we brought her out to be held again, and this time Malcolm was all over that. He kept trying to give her kisses between shouting out "BUNNY!" and "HAPPY!!" at the top of his lungs at her. 

Today I brought her out again to play in our back room (where the wood floors are) and at first she was tentative and ladylike. Then suddenly it seemed to dawn on her that she was free and she went crazy. Leaping, bounding, running full tilt and then realizing too late that wood floors over no traction for bunny feet. Lots of crashes and stumbles and tripping over stuff. Lots of laughing at the funny bunny. Once she'd calmed down, we took her outside for a few minutes and she let me pet her tummy. 

I can't resist this face

Then of course I had to show you how cute it is to see a bunny with it's face between it's feet. 

Jazz hands (feet)

The kids are ecstatic. Art is indifferent. I think she's great!

Snuggle time

So adorable, Jenn! I love her giant fuzzy feet. It reminds me a bit of the Dufflepuds from The Voyage of the Dawn Treader - only supremely cuter, of course.

she is so sweet. I am going to share this post with my sister in law who is crazy about bunnies and has one too.

Is she going to be a house rabbit or outdoors? I've had two house rabbits in the past. Clover and Kaylee. Both before Firefly and at different times. Yours looks just like Clover, the sweetest bunny ever.

Note of caution. Bunnies never sneeze or get colds and it's pretty downhill from there. Find a vet that knows bunnies and go quickly if you hear a sneeze.

Kaylee passed a few years ago, 2003. I haven't recovered enough to get another one. She was too awesome. Sasquatch fell in love with Kaylee, too. He'd be on board if I decided we needed a bunny. Chickens by the way are easier than bunnies.

Wow! I never thought a bunny could be so darned cute! She is adorable looking. And yes, those feet are the best.
