Mr. Bunnese, BEST Netherland Dwarf Rabbit EVER!
Pen and Ink
Mr. Bunnese (or Mr. Boneeze), was the best Netherland Dwarf Rabbit, ever! Sadly, he is no longer with us. He went to the big warren in the sky in 2007.

Mr. B. was a perfect fit into our family. He was somewhat of a screwball. He had a kitchen mat that he claimed as his own. No one was permitted to step on it or he'd push you off with his head. He never left the mat. You could go out knowing that he would still be on his mat when you arrived home.

We had a litter box, food, water, and toys on and around the mat. Mr. B. was very content to spend his time there. We would get down on the floor to play with him. He loved to interact with us, on his terms.

FHe was a gentle and sweet bunny. He lived to a very old age. When he had a stroke, about a year before his death, I would hand feed him and give him water by hand. Eventually his little brain rewired itself so he could do these on his own again, but he was a little lopsided. We loved him so much. It was a sad day for us when his little body finally gave up to age.
