Mario, my Chunky Monkey bunny

by Sandra, guest contributor, Mario's biped • Sep 16 , 2013

Mario has slowed down a little over the nine years we’ve spent together. However I have plenty of great tales to tell of his energetic exploits when he was younger. My nickname for Mario used to be, “Chunky Monkey.” He would often eat things first and think later.

Rabbits are the best snoozers

If Mario had to apply for a job somewhere, he is most fit for the position of “Professional Napper.”  This rabbit sleeps the majority of the day.  Rabbits are crepuscular which means they are most active at dawn and dusk. Mario has skewed his schedule a bit to be most active in the morning when I first get up and …

I was living in New York City when I first got Mario. When my husband and I moved to San Francisco six years ago, Mario had to come along, too. We took two weeks driving across the country. Half the car seemed to be filled with things that Mario needed for the journey.

My life with a house bunny

by Sandra, guest contributor, Mario's biped • Apr 09 , 2013

When I was a child my animal-loving heart was never allowed to have a dog. My parents got me a rabbit for my ninth birthday as a compromise to the “you want to have a dog but we want you to have fish” conflict. I wanted something furry to play with and my parents wanted a lower maintenance pet. I …

Not many people know this, but the Ravens can thank a rabbit named Bunbun for their Superbowl win. You’re probably wondering how a Mini Rex rabbit is directly responsible for this win. In order for this miracle to make sense, I need to tell you about my first encounter with my girlfriend Kelly’s family. I was invited to their house in Abingdon, …

Peggy Hanson and her husband, who live in Seattle, had four bunnies that got along with each other very well. A co-worker also had a rabbit, but didn’t have time to play with her, so she asked if Peggy would take her in. What’s one more? Peggy thought, so she agreed to add Snowy to her colony, or warren (in …
