Replacement Rabbit

I would like to announce the arrival of our newest pet, Miles Davis. He is the most gorgeous rabbit I've ever seen! He'll go out in his run after I've had him to the vet for a miximitosis vaccination this evening.
I saw him this afternoon in the pet shop while I was in getting some suet for the wild birds. It was love at first sight! He's got the best fur of all time. It's like he is a living breathing velveteen rabbit.

George and I have been handling him a lot so that Miles Davis is a good non-scratchy bunny.

He's gorgeous! I don't like them very much, i prefer dogs as pets, but i do now! he's so cute!

Jay said...

He is very cute. I've never had a rabbit for a pet, but they are interesting.

He's certainly the right colour but is he any good on the trumpet? He looks lovely next to that gorgeous red sofa, it sets his velvet fur off beautifully.

I am not a rabbit lover, but he looks so gorgeous. Do you keep them as house rabbits??

sally said...

Oooo yah! Welcome Miles Davis. I think my husband would have a cow if I just happened to come home with a furry rabbit, but that's cuz we're city folk with no outdoor pen. Maybe I could come home with Volkswagon Rabbit?? There's an idea...

We haven't introduced Miles and Polly just yet. Miles would probably like to be a house rabbit, but I don't know if that is going to be feasible.

ex-shammickite - Miles Davis is smokin on the trumpet. Leave your cash at home, he'll only play for carrots and parsley.

They're pretty cool pets - males are actually more gentle than females.

Sally - We still have Jasper's old hutch, rabbit run and water bottles. All we needed was a fresh rabbit. After having a rabbits as pets for the past 12 years, it was hard not to have one anymore.

That's one beautiful rabbit. I've never had one as a pet, but they sure are cute.

Tink said...

AH! I just want to reach through the screen and touch him. Beautiful bunny.

The other suggested names were
1) Julio
2) Steve French (an arcane reference for sure but as he doesn't really have a cute little moustache, it wouldn't work. A prize for anyone who gets this reference!)
3) James Brown

Don't know if this was shared here but, snce Christmas, we have two house gerbils called Cobain and Hendrix.

The velveteen rabbit has nothing on him. He's beautiful!

Kell said...

He is gorgeous! We had a rabbit for a while. She was really sweet until she hit puberty, but I've heard that males are much nicer.

I worked with a woman once who had a pet rabbit (called "Peter," cleverly enough). She had a cage for it in her dining room, but she let it out to run (inside) when she was home. When visitors would come in the door, the rabbit would hop over and--quick as a wink--pee on one of their shoes. You didn't really notice what he was doing until you saw that your shoe (and occasionally sock) was wet. Hmmm...

Henry:
Steve French was/is a comedy writer for BBC??

susan said...

He's beautiful!

Is he as cuddly as he looks? That's one critter we've never had. (yet)

claude said...

OMG! A wabbit! He is really cute, and I like his colour.
I wonder what Polly will think when you introduce them, though. Beware, rabbits love chewing on wires.

Am trying to catch up with my blog readin!h

UKBob said...

What a nice bunny peggy, I hope you do manage to make him a none scratch bunny.

Xtreme English said...

got it. Steve French is from Trailer Park Boys 4th season, which includes the loveable mountain lion, Steve French.

Peggy said...

That's it Ma! You got the reference. Trailer Park Boys is SO funny. A lot of the mispronunciations and grammatical errors from the show have worked their way into our daily lives, like "taking out the recycles".

Xtreme English said...

Unless I miss my guess, Trailer Park Boys is the one very popular Britcom that has NOT been shown in the U.S. of A. We gotta remedy that somehow. We can buy the DVDs, though. Gonna get one.

Wot's the prize, btw??
