If you’re the crafty type, you may be considering making gifts for the holiday season. One November, I decided to make this knitted rabbit by fuzzymitten (pattern can be found at this link). I thought it might be fun to try another pattern this year. I found several that were incredibly cute, and wanted to share them with everyone.
Last summer, we posted about Benny, a Flemish Giant house rabbit, vying for the record of World’s Longest Rabbit. Unfortunately, Benny recently succumbed to illness.
But while Benny lived, he touched the hearts of many people: the Heather family, who took him in from a sanctuary in 2008, as well as an incredible number of Facebook friends.
With encouragement from Benny’s fans around the world, Sharon Heather has shared Benny’s story in the book, Benny’s Fantastic Adventure.
Nakisha of Blue Dog Rose is hosting a contest to win a set of 8 holiday cards she’s illustrated. She’s created three designs and needs help deciding which one to print. To win a set, all you have to do is leave a comment on her blog post and let her know which one you like best. All three designs are very cute.
Contest ends August 6.

Kathy Smith and Lucile Moore, authors of When Your Rabbit Needs Special Care, have recently released a new rabbit book. A collection of 39 stories, Touched by a Rabbit puts a spotlight on house rabbits’ unique personalities and the special bond between rabbit and rabbit owner.
Here is an excerpt from the story “A Rabbit for All Seasons” by Lisa Ivers:
Within a year she was unrecognizable as her former self. Jasper blossomed to a healthy 10 pounds, and was sporting twelve pounds six months later. At the same time she developed a very strong opinion of who she liked and disliked. When my husband went away on business, I decided to order a pizza for dinner. Imagine the delivery man’s surprise (and mine, for that matter) when a black blur of a rabbit bolted for the door, lunged at his feet and chased him to the driveway. The poor guy jumped through the open window of his car, begging me to call off my “dog.” “What kind of dog is that?! I’ve never seen ears like that on a dog!” I think I heard his testosterone levels crashing to the asphalt when I told him she was a rabbit. Granted, he didn’t get a very good look at her while he was running away…but he got a hefty tip that night.
To purchase Touched by a Rabbit, visit the rabbit-friendly retailers listed on the Touched by a Rabbit website or go to Buy Books on the Web.
The Vancouver Rabbit Rescue & Advocacy, a chapter of the House Rabbit Society, is looking for photos for their 2010 calendar. The theme, in honor of Vancouver hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics, is “The Olympic Rabbits.”
They are looking for photos of rabbits doing natural rabbitty behavior like yawning, stretching, binkying, digging, bulldozing, standing, grooming, and snuggling.
Does your bunny have what it takes?
