I'm Dandy. I'm a houserabbit. Now you might think that it's unusual for a rabbit to be keeping a journal, but do you REALLY know what your dog / cat / hamster gets up to while you are not around?

I've been living with my 2 foots now for about 3 months, but it's taken me this long to figure out how to get out of the cage, switch on the computer, and let's face it, would you like trying to type with these paws?

I live with my best girl (Flopsy) who is just so.......... well you know what I mean. Before I came here, life really was not so great. I have vague memories of a pet shop, and then a tiny filthy wooden hutch at the bottom of a garden. Then I spent a whole year at the Bunny Camp Sanctuary in Bradford. There were very nice to me, but it's not like having a place of your own. Buns would be brought in, and people would adopt them, but for some reason, no one ever wanted me, at least not until last December......

At the start of December, the Bunny Camp had an open day. I didn't know at the time, but Flopsy (who I had not met back then) had just lost her sister Blackberry a few days before. Flopsy was brought in to Bunny Camp by some 2 foots, and they introduced us WELL, it was lust at 1st sight let me tell you baby!!!

The 2 foots took me home with Flopsy, and that is now where I live... I can here someone coming, must go, more later......

Now where was I.......

When the 2 foots got me home, they decided (Notice I say THEY decided, nobody consults me!!!) that to help me to settle down, I should have may marriage tackle removed WHAT!!!!! Anyway, they never told me that was why we were going to the vet, I thought it was just time for the mixi jab or something, anyway, I digress. I had the op, and was just starting to feel hungry & stuff when suddenly BANG blood starts pouring from my stitches, and I felt myself getting really woozy. My 2 foots grabbed me, and took me straight away back to the vet, more anesthetic, more stitches, but boy, did I play for sympathy, I've got this real pathetic look that I can put on WHENEVER I like, of course the 2 foots fell for it hook line & sinker. A long recuperation, with lots of attention (just as it should be) followed, but you know how it goes, I overdid things, and next thing I knew I had gut stasis! I'll tell you, that one had me REALLY worried, but fortunately, my 2 foots took me to Francis Harcourt-Brown, one of the best vet's in the universe by all accounts (still, I'm worth it), and she fixed all my problems, so now everything is just fine & dandy (geddit!).

My woman is calling.... As much as I would like to stay & chat, there are other priorities....
