Emily and I went yesterday to pick out her new dwarf bunny. A friend from church breeds them and graciously offered to let Emily have one.
Emily slept in until 11 a.m. yesterday morning. I was just getting ready to go wake her up because we had to leave in 25 minutes when she came down the stairs. She told me that her plan worked. When I asked what she was talking about, she told me that she had forced her eyes to stay open until about 2 a.m. so that she would sleep late and when she got up it would be time to leave! LOL This girl is too funny at times.
Anyway, off we went and she picked out the one she liked. Dwarf Hotot rabbits are generally pure white with just a little black ring around each eye.
I was a little concerned about Emily's allergies but it's hard to keep saying no to her because she is crazy about animals and they seem to love her too. So I gave her some allergy medicine before we went to see if we could ease her into it.
So far she's been fine and hasn't been sneezing, wheezing or anything. Hopefully it will stay that way. In fact, I held the rabbit for a while this morning and *I'm* the one that seems to be congested!
She held Molly a lot yesterday. Because our friend had a baby around the same time the rabbits were born, she didn't get a chance to handle them much. So Molly is a bit skittish. However, once you get a hold of her she calms right down and snuggles in to your arm. She seems to have a very sweet personality and isn't nipping at all.
This is how Emily was much of the day yesterday. I looked over and she was reading a book and holding onto her new friend.
She is thrilled with her gift which makes me happy!
