Staying true to Tru-Luv Rabbitry’s yearly tradition, here wishing you and yours a joyous Holiday season and a happy and peaceful New Year…
Cannot believe that it has been 14 years.
Every now and then, I’ll take a peek to have a little look.
A few moments to listen.
The noises are still deafening.
Indeed, same sh*t different day.
Whether or not we’re still here is anyone’s guess.
But it’s back to hibernating…
What a year it has been!
Just like a tiny blip, Christmas is upon us once again. Hope we will all have a better 2021 and that it will be a year of recovery and healing.
Nonetheless, I hope the holiday season brings warmth, joy, and love to your home!
Sonshine’s Goodie Two Shoes or Michum as she is fondly known, this beautiful little Netherland Dwarf came to us directly from the USA in December 2009.
Proudly owned by our dear friends Adesh and Shahfiq, she lived an amazing 10 years filled with tons of love and care.
Today we pay tribute to this amazing little doe who outlived most of her peers.
Binky free and find the rest of the herd at Rainbow Bridge. You will have Truffles waiting for you as well as all the TLR bunnies!
Another year has passed since I last posted on here. Besides from the Christmas mood, there is something about December that makes me revisit this blog. Perhaps there is something about Christmas that reminds me about this hobby that I used to be passionate about.
Much has happened since our last Holland Lop and life has been interesting to say the least. Rabbit has always been my solace in troubled times but I have grown to be strong without them. Perhaps one day, I will revisit this hobby and get into the rabbit habit once again. I am quite sure that will happen if retirement is kind to me.
So as I was going through the blog today, I found an important post empty. I don’t know what happened but thank goodness for the revision feature that I was able to restore to the latest version before everything went missing. The post in question is the remake of the “How Should A 8 Weeks Old Look Like“. If you are new to the rabbit hobby, it is good visual information if you are thinking about breeding responsibly. Ensure that you pass on baby rabbits that are 8 weeks old or older.
Since this will be the only post for 2019, I wish that the past year has been a good one for you. I also pray that 2020 will be a great year for all of us.
Here’s wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2020!
Though I no longer have live rabbits, I have quite a huge collection of rabbit figurines, collectibles, and decorations.
Today, I added these…
And they are stinking cute!
Death is inevitable and unavoidable. I have written before that in keeping animals as pets, we are given the opportunity to see our pets go through their entire life cycle – from birth to death.
Throughout the years, I have known many wonderful people who have adopted my rabbits and I still receive updates from most of them.
Today, I received devastating news that Dovehill’s Faith has since passed on. She came to us in May 2011 as a rock solid doe. She has stumpy front legs and a body that every Holland Lop breeder strive to produce. Faith has produced some of the best offspring and have definitely improved the quality of my herd since her arrival here at Tru-Luv Rabbitry. One particular litter she produced two bucks and one of them was Tru-Luv’s Murdoch.
I must thank Cheri for her generosity in sharing Faith with us. Thank you Tracey and family for giving Faith an amazing home.
Binky free dearest Faith and may we meet again in that wonderful place you are at.
My first rabbit convention was back in 2011 at the 88th ARBA Convention (Indiana) and it was an experience of a lifetime. Like many firsts in life, I do not think I will ever forget the experience.
And it has not been the same since.
The friendships and relationships that I had prior, during, and after 2011 grew over the years and it makes me really happy to know that I now have a bunny family across the globe. One that loves me unconditionally – with or without rabbits.
And it is because of this wonderful bunny family that I decided to embark on this “full circle” trip to Indiana once again for the 94th ARBA Convention at Indiana. At the beginning of my journey, I told myself that this could be my last opportunity and I will cherish every moment – come what may.
After more than 30 hours, I finally arrived at my destination. It felt like coming home after a very long time.
After a well rested night, we headed out to the fairgrounds and it felt so good to be back here again.
Approximately 21,000 rabbits from 49 breeds under one roof this time around with the Lionhead and Argente Brun added to the list of recognized breeds since my first convention here.
As usual, there were many amazing animals and the finest representations of each breed.
Besides from seeing my bunny friends from all over the USA, I made new friends and added new members to my bunny family.
The highlight for me personally was meeting the lagendary Kay Miller for the first time. If you have been following my blog, Kay was the generous soul who had been monumental in getting my herd started. Without knowing who I was, she had sent me a top lop in Carmel and my all time favorite herd buck, Clark. To finally meet Kay was truly a dream come true for me. I finally had the opportunity to thank her in person.
I truly enjoyed myself throughout the convention which was held from 1st until 5th October 2017. It was nothing short of Friendship, Fellowship, Fun, and Food.
I realized that because I was a new visitor back in 2011, my focus was on rabbits alone. But this time around, it was a lot of fun hanging out with the bunny family. I felt so blessed knowing that not many will have the same opportunities and the experiences that I had.
The feeling ia truly priceless and indescribable.
Only time will tell what the future holds for me and all I have to do between now and then is BELIEVE…
