Oh, it was love at first sight. I went to the pet store yesterday to pick up some goodies for Cocoa when I passed by the bunnies. And there she was. In all her Thumper-like glory, Dusty and I locked eyes and little cartoon hearts floated above our heads. I grabbed the cell out of my purse and called home.
Me: “Honey. Can I have a bunny?”
Me: “A bunny. She’s a rex bunny and I love her. Can I have her?”
Him: “NO. What the he** are we gonna do with a bunny?!”
Me: “Love her. Play with her and pet her, OMG SHE’S SO SOFT.”
Him: “Where are we going to PUT a bunny?!”
Me: “In my studio. I’ll make room.”
Him: “Well let’s all come down there later this afternoon and see her first.”
Me: “uurrrghhh fine. okay.”
And an hour later, he was all “What kind of bunny?” and he googled her breed and within like 10 minutes he said “pack up the girls and go get her, then.” And I was all “SQUEEEE!!!!”
And here she is, the newest addition to our family, Dusty. She’s an
chinchilla Opal (colored) Rex bunny, and she’s simply adorable. Softer than cotton and cuter than cute, she snuggles and licks and nudges and she likes to sleep on my shoulder. Awwwww.
I lurrrve my bunneh.
