Let me introduce you to Rupert

How is everyone? The days are well and truly turning to winter and the heating has been on the past few days. Although I'm currently siting in my conservatory and the sun is shining through the glass, its quite pleasant in here.

I thought it was about time I introduced you to Rupert our new house bunny. We got Rupert as we thought the time was right. Our beloved Hercules bunny passed away a year ago leaving a massive hole in our lives. We were not sure we would have another bunny, but my daughter had been looking after a neighbours bunnies and it really made us realise how much we miss having one in our lives.

So off we went to the local pet shop which had just opened in our village and fell in love with a bunny who would become to be known as Rupert.
My daughter stood in the middle of the shop giving him a hug and he just stayed on her enjoying the closeness.

Would you like to meet him?

Rupert is a Lion head lop cross, his almost 6 months old now and is so full of personality. He has our hearts, he is so sweet. If any of you follow me on instargram you will have seen he gets upto all sorts.

The sweetest thing he does is when he sleeps he pops one paw under his head as he lays down. Ive tried so hard to take a good photo, but he keeps waking up!

He also makes good company for watching Downton Abbey. After I drop the children off at school on a monday I make a cuppa and Rupert and I sit on the sofa to watch.

We have also managed to train him to ask for treats, so he goes to the corner of the room on his back legs. 
We are so pleased we went looking for a bunny the day we did as Rupert is such a sweet, funny and loving bunny

Do any of you have a house bunny? I would love to hear about them in the comments.
