Ted



This is Ted. He's a sweet old bunny who was adopted by one of our nieces awhile back. She can't care for him anymore, so she asked if we could take him in. He'll live the rest of his days here with us, nibbling sweet grass and being doted upon by adoring children. I've come to realize that, when we can, saying yes to such opportunities when they arise makes for a very rich and blessed life. Say yes, friends, as much as you're able.

  1. Good advice--and good for you! What a sweet little bunny face! He must be SO happy at your place.

    This actually dovetails with a post I've been mentally writing over the past few weeks about not giving up on people--including critter people. We inadvertently adopted a troubled/special needs cat and had to try so many different things before we finally found a way to all live together in harmony. So many times I was close to just sending the kitty packing, but I just couldn't give up on her. And now we've got both major behavioral issues under control and I am SO glad I kept trying and trying. I should get on that post, maybe.

    1. He does seem to like it here! I was a little worried about our noisy, busy environment - kids, dogs... But he's easy-going and handling the adjustment well I think.

    2. P.S. Beth, sounds like that would be a wise and wonderful post!

  2. Aw, I have a real soft spot for bunnies. I used to have three but that was a long time ago. They are such neat critters.

    1. We're all pretty smitten with him. I'm way behind on my housework - it's much more fun to see what Ted is up to!

  3. Love that bunny! Be careful, though. If he is not already eating grass, work him up slowly like you would any animal transitioning feed. The rich grass and lack of flora can kill him. My neighbors killed two bunnies that way. The second one was taken to the vet who told them what was wrong, but it was still too late.

    He's beautiful! I love black and white animals!

    1. Thanks, Barb! Yep, he's used to some grass and fresh greens - I've kept his diet the same (grass hay, greens, probiotic pellets), and just slowly introducing our own grass and the ever-plentiful dandelion greens my kids keep bringing in ;)

  4. I think it should be a written rule, especially in parenting - say yes as often as you possibly can. No is easy. Yes brings challenges and also blessings.
