Bunny Sunday

Today's featured bunny is Sandie. Also known as Big Daddy (and a lot of other really silly nicknames). He is the only one of the bunch that has no white markings. He is also the biggest of the bunch at 5 lbs.But he wasn't always big! Look at this little hamster sized bunny... When they were this little it was hard to resist picking them up every chance I could. Just a little handful o'bunny.Sandie is the big brother to all of the other bunnies and also serves as the patriarch. All of the other bunnies have to pay homage to him by grooming him. Even the chickens feel the need (see them in the background?)

Sandie is a special bunny. He took over as head of the family when we lost our mama bunny last year.
It's really interesting to see the family dynamics at work in this group. There really is a hierarchy and Sandie is definitely at the top. No one messes with Big Daddy!

Sandy is so handsome. Once you have the chicken vote you can rule the world!

What a handsome fellow! It's a good thing I've never seen a baby bunny in the flesh or I'd be bringing them home with me by the handful!

It's so adorable watching the other buns grooming Sandy.

He looks like the velveteen rabbit. His fur looks so soft!!! I would want to pick him up and cuddle him :-)
