A friend came over yesterday and brought a newspaper for the neighboring NY state area, which is only about 20 minutes from here. There was a photo of pets for adoption at the local shelter. Besides the expected long list of dogs and cats – there was the unexpected – FOUR bunnies at this shelter.
This one, a Jersey Wooly, whatever that is, is the youngest. The others are about a year old. The ad said all would be neutered/spayed before adoption. I’m going to call there today for particulars, but I’m really not sure how my 15-year old Boomer dog, who is half beagle/half Jack Russel terrier, is going to take to having a bunny (or bunnies) around. Is it even fair to put a bunny anywhere near a beagle-head?
Boomer’s never really been a hunter, other than barking and chasing now and then, but he’s getting too old for much of that. I’m really not sure whether he would adjust and actually like the company, or cause terror to reign on the poor bunnies. I could of course keep them separated, but that’s not really the best because when I get a bunny, they’d be part of the family, not just in the pen. And yes, I know I keep switching from singular to plural here. I’m doomed.
