    Hi everyone
    This is a thread for all rabbit keepers to share their ideas and experiences they have had with rabbits. At the moment, we only own three rabbits. We have owned more than 14 in the past, and have learnt a lot through owning them. So feel free to share any experiences, and replies wanted from all rabbit owners!

    Well I’ve never bred rabbits and I have no idea what sort of rabbits I had but I have raised two up and I must say they make great pets. Both my lovely bunnies have passed away (old age) but I can never pass up a chance to post pics of my cute lil guys

    Here is FuFu looking out from the chicken house, they lived with the chickens and got along with them great

    Lil Thumper running in the chicken yard, they did dig out every now and then but they would just stay around the chicken house until I picked them up and put them back

    Okay, the photos of the bunny tails is adorable. It made me go "Awwwwgggghhh!"

    I have two male rabbits that I love. I've only had them a year. When we got them, we thought they were females and named them Thelma and Louise. Well, they turned out to be Thumper and Louie. lol

    This is Taz our Pyrenees puppy helping Thumper dig a hole in the rabbit run. They love each other. (for some reason, he isn't as fond of the other rabbit) They play tag. I giggle everytime I see that rabbit run up to him and thump him and take off running.

    This is Louie. I brought him in and propped him up on the bed. This was too funny. I wish I had put the tv remote in his hand.
