>Oh, wait, that’s not how the poem goes.
There’s a lot of fur in our house. I keep joking (but help me out if there’s really a way to do this) that if we could spin into yarn the rabbit fur that’s shedded all over the house, we’d never have to buy another blanket or sweater for as long as…well, as long as we have bunnies.
There’s Buttercup, the one who can run figure eights around our feet, even though she’s bigger than any of our shoes.
There are Peanut and Sadie, the bunnies who went to college with La Petite so she wouldn’t be lonely in her apartment.
They may have left our lives for that big warren in the sky, but we still have wonderful memories of Tiny
and the incredible Beast
Fur? We have plenty of it. On the fireplace hearth, on the loveseat
(where the sunspot hits by day), and on the floor under the rocking chair. Toothmarks? Those empty boxes all over the living room aren’t clutter; they’re bunny toys. They help keep Buttercup from chewing on the furniture…some of the time
But no matter how much shedding, how much gnawing goes on, nothing equals a hug from a snuggle bunny.
In honor of the love they give so freely, and the fur they shed just as freely, this post is for our little furry ones. Parent Bloggers Network is shedding, er, featuring more pet posts this weekend in a blog blast called Show Off Your Shedder with a sweepstakes sponsored by Pledge and their new Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair. Don’t laugh; you might be the next one with rabbit hair stuck to your sweater.
