Bunny Sunday

My friend Christina, who lives in Oklahoma and volunteers with my favorite bunny rescue group, Heartland Rabbit Rescue, shared a "Bun of the Day" on her FaceBook page a few weeks ago.  This is what it said:

Bun of the day: Darla

The tattoo in her ear reads 90210 but Beverly Hills was not the lifestyle Darla lived. Slender frame, saggy dewlap and the tat all scream that she was used for breeding. Never again precious Darla. A chocolate rex, her coat is like fine velvet. She likes posing for pictures so if she were to adopt you get ready to take constant snapshots of this princess. Darla needs love and lots of it. With time you may be able to convince her not all humans are bad and when she lays her head on your lap with trust in those big brown eyes, all will be right with the world. Darla's song......"I will survive"

And this is Darla:
My first thought was, "Wow, she looks just like my Nutmeg!".  I kept going back to the pic and looking at it and thinking about (and missing) Nutty Brown...

Quite the resemblance, huh?
So, in Nutmeg's honor, I decided that I would sponsor Darla.  She could be an honorary member of our family.  Nutmeg would definitely approve.

Sponsoring a bunny is a great way to help with expenses, vet care, etc.  It's only $45 a year.  For your donation/sponsorship you get a sponsorship certificate, a 5x7 photo of your rabbit, three cards from your rabbit throughout the year and a fridge magnet with your rabbit's picture on it.  And a warm, fuzzy feeling that you are doing something to help a sweet bunny!  Check out the bunny bios on Heartland's website, I'm sure there is a special bunny waiting just for you.  :)

Happy Bunny Sunday!

Thank you Bridget for always thinking of the bunnies at Heartland. Darla is a special girl.

They could definitely be twins! Both are gorgeous. What a lovely way to honour Nutmeg and pass along some love to Darla.

Blessings,

You are such a kind and caring person. Darla is beautiful and fortunate... and yes, she does look like Nutmeg's twin

Oh how sweet of you. Nutmeg is smiling right now.

She's a beautiful girl and I'm glad she has been rescued from the horrors of her previous life.
