It is SNOWING on October 5th 2012.... Gosh I hate when we get the snow this early in the year... But the moisture is definately welcome after the forest fires and drought we have been having. It is shocking the ammount falling and with no accumulation.... SO much for letting the rabbits run outside toda
Finding Otis was a complete surprise to me. I was scheduled to attend the MSRBA Rabbit show September 29th when my little Max passed away suddenly due to a broken back the weekend before. I was crushed and feeling like I could never look at another Boy rabbit again. I decided to go anyways and a breeder who was going to be there said she would have some for me to look at. I saw THE ONE that I fell in love with instantly. I took him out and he was mellow, I posed him and looked him over and he was beautiful! Then uppon looking at his tag I saw it, Maxwell. I KNEW this was it. This was THE ONE that was meant to be. When the breeder came back over and I explained to her I liked him, she informed me he was taken. I was devastated. A gentleman was on his way from Canada to get the rabbit I felt so strongly about.... So I took a look at a few others and found a sweet boy who had that naughty personality just like my Max. She told me if the gentleman didn't come to get the one I fell in love with, he could be mine. Well, you can imagine my reservations of getting attached when I knew my luck was so horrible it could never happen.
Hours passed and there was no response from the man coming to take him. The next morning I walked over to ask if I could enter the other little guy I was going to be taking home in the show to get feed back on him from a judge when she looked at me with a big smile on her face and said something that I couldn't quite get my brain to understand. Staring at her blankly, she repeated with an even bigger smile, "He's yours" I know my eyes must have gotten so large from hearing those words. All I could respond was, "REALLY?" she gave me a big hug and reaffirmed that he was indeed MINE.
That is the story of how I came to get Otis, my new little French Lop buck.
