For the past 3 years, I have shared my rabbits with many and I am pretty sad to say that only a handful take the trouble to update me on their progress. Though only a few are proactive in keeping in touch, we have formed a strong friendship bond among ourselves. We take turns to bunny sit for each other and it is really fun to have a little support group going on.
A friend asked me about Skor tonight and I was struck with sadness. I am quite disappointed because I last heard about him a month after I passed him on. The only photo I have of him was taken 3 days after he went to his new home. Once in a while I’ll send a text message to his new owner without any replies.
As I was about to turn off my computer and go to bed heart broken, one of my “bestest” bunny friends IMed me and sent me these photos. They really made my day. Thanks a lot Shahfiq and Adesh! You both rock!
Mishu and Bugsy. The newly weds. Successfully bonded for life....

The Loving Couple
Isn’t that just wonderful? Everybunny is just happy. Not to mention the super huge living quarters that they have for themselves. It is like Kent and Barbie’s mansion I tell ya!
The world is perfect with bunny owners like these 2! Good news is, I know quite a few like them. Awesome!
Thunder’s fur has grown back again and he is as handsome as ever.
The Bulldog with Stumpy legs is back!
90% coat is back...
For the past 3 years, I have known breeders who have given up on their hobby and I still do keep in touch with them. Though we have not much in common to talk about anymore, I sometimes wonder how they feel or what would they think about their past hobby. I am sure they would be thinking along the lines of “I once had pretty nice and competitive rabbits”.
Life has been pretty hectic for me lately and it is hard to ignore the “I once had nice rabbits” thought and feeling. I don’t mean that I have since sold out my rabbits but putting myself in the possible future, maybe that could be my feeling or thought.
I really do wonder what goes through the head of those who have since left the hobby. Would they miss having Holland Lops? Would they think that it was silly spending so much time and resources on just rabbits? Or would they feel proud that they have been there and done that?
As for me, I can’t see myself there as yet but when I do, I will be proud to have done it without regrets! At least in my lifetime, I can be proud have beautiful rabbits. Heck, I still DO!
Looking at the beautiful rabbits and great breeders of the past really helps in reminding me that I should be happy to have them right now, at this very moment. It is the greatest PRESENT anyone could have!
I am taking a long break from blogging. I might be posting photos from time to time but I will not write any interesting article for the coming months.
I am sure that there are some interesting posts in the past that you would like to go through under the archive (on the right hand side). They are sorted by months and also categories.
All the bunnies at TLR are well.
Hope to be back on writing interesting posts soon!
