Max is my beautiful, nearly 6 month old French Lop buck. He was my first living baby out of breeding my pair. They only had the one baby and he definately is ONE IN A MILLION! Standing at the counter with him at around 4 weeks old just after finding out he was a boy, we were stumped on picking a name for this special boy! I had held a contest through Milo & Me's facebook page to get one and nothing seemed to fit him.... And it hit me from absolutely no where! MAX! It wasn't until WEEKS later that someone called him Maxamilion and I thought PERFECT! Maxamilion is one in a million! Believe it or not, his adopted sister, (Fostered to his mom Mailey to help save him) is only 2.5 pounds and 2 days older! He still has a ways to grow but he is working his way up the weight class very nicely! His personality is absolutely the best and I am soooo glad I decided to keep him instead of getting a puppy! He is my pride and joy in every aspect. Something odd that I see NOW were all signs he was meant to stay.... I only Owned Milo and Mailey at the time of his birth, He was my 3rd French Lop EVER. Born on March 3rd, Milo and Mailey's birthdays are both on the 9th day of the month and 3 multiplied by 3 is 9. He had 3 still born siblings in the litter before him and 3 siblings in the litter after him. Mailey fostered 2 polish babies in with Max putting the total litter at 3 babies. Mailey fostered in 3 babies to her third litter. Just a fun little coinkydink!
I have been working on colonizing my French lop does curently and have found it to be trying. Individually they are potty trained but if you throw others in the mix they are not as potty trained, still trained just not fully.... This to me is frustrating.... But it is going well otherwise! Tessy is making a full recovery after her Bloat and fluid in her lungs and Max is absolutely having a ball with full run of my room! Maybe Milo and him will be willing to share my room and I can cut back to NO CAGES AT ALL! We shall see in the weeks to come. This weekend we will be experimenting on if the father son duo will tollerate eachother as Max can be a bit much at times like his mother ;)
Little Tessy can't seem to catch a break at all lately! UGH!!! The poor little french lop just turned 14 weeks old and after recovering from bloat last week has developed fluid in her lungs so back on antibiotics she goes to fix her up again! day one was last night and it will be another 7 to 10 (most likely 10) days on the Baytril.... Lots of love, cuddles and yogurt and treats from me, grandma and her momma! Hoping to have her back in tip top shape before too long :)
