Emelyn and her bunny

Emelyn spent all last summer dreaming about having her own bunny after spending time at a friend's house who had bunnies. So finally, in September we ordered a hutch and bought two baby bunnies. They were siblings, but we didn't know if they were male or female. Eme named them Racy (because he was a fast runner) and Cuddles (I think you can figure out where this name came from!). Well, this spring, Cuddles hasn't been so cuddly - he's actually been very mean. We discovered they were both males, and had to separate them. Then Cuddles started being aggressive towards us - biting and attacking. We decided it wasn't a good idea to have him around the kids and had to take him to the SPCA (with tears).

In the meantime, Racy has become such a sweet bunny. He seems very happy and content. Last weekend we moved his hutch underneath a tree and added a fence so he can run "free." He really seems to like it. Here are some pictures of what we have done and of Eme and Racy.

We have a bunny. He stinks though...I want to take him outside somehow...not a bad idea! But, what about the winter?
He is very nice and friendly and can run around the basement, but chews on cords and things. So, he ends up in his cage more than I want.
