Thanks to some wonderful friends, we finally adopted two gigantic rabbits.
Grethe talked me into French Lops, after I had my mind made up about Flemish Giant rabbits.
It's true, I love over-sized, fuzzy animals.
Grethe is a Washington state rabbit breeder, nationally ranked and runs her own business.
We brought one male and female home in a bushel basket.
For babies, they were pretty big.
Now, they're even bigger; about 10 lbs.
The male is pretty grumpy. He hates hugs and head rubs, but loves apples and doing flips in his yard.
I love watching the rabbits do normal, rabbity things, like dig huge burrows (which I promptly bury), chase each other and flop down on top of each other in their yard. They seek shade in the summer and a good cave in the winter.
I got them fixed at the Humane Society. I have a double decker rabbit house, so they had to live separately while each of them healed.
As far as a low maintenance pet with good entertainment value, these rabbits are a solid 8 out of 10. If they were a little more personable, they would be a 10.
