Next Chapter

The interesting thing about a book is that, as long as you have not finish reading it, the story continues. For the past 6 years the story of Tru-Luv Rabbitry enters into many different chapters. At this juncture, it is entering yet another chapter and the story evolves.

With the recent sale and adoption post, many have approached me with offers and I appreciate each inquiry. All but one have returned to their respective homes and I am sure they will be well taken care of.

Throughout the years I have learned many lessons while raising Holland Lops and most of which are related to human behavior. If there is one thing I learn about handling humans in this hobby, it is definitely the skill of keeping a straight face and whatever you do, you must not allow your emotions show.

But time and time again, I am reminded that it is not really about the people but instead it really is all about the hobby. Which is, my rabbits and I.

We should always learn from the past and move forward with all the good lesson learned but I for one can get stuck at a certain point of time reminiscing the wonderful events the past has to offer.

I remembered that in the past, I have all the time in the world to spend grooming and handling each and every one of my rabbits. Then I realized that back then, I only have a handful and that was when the impact of the thought hits. Twenty five (25) rabbits just do not make sense and when I think of it right now, I ask myself how the hell did it get out of control like that!

Just imagine a room filled with battle droids like how it is in a Star Wars movie. Every single one look identical but somehow different. It really comes to a pointless situation whereby I start asking myself why am I cloning so many rabbits that looks the same while missing the real point of having a pet?

I believe we tend to loose focus sometimes and somehow need to be reminded of the meaning of raising animals as pets.

Through the years I have encountered many people who are captivated by the beautiful pictures of cute rabbits posted on the internet. It came to a point where everyone wants a Holland Lop. Unfortunately for some, after having the rabbits for a couple of weeks realize that it is not as interesting as it seemed to be. The rabbit tend to avoid human contact, less interactive and poops a lot!

Even though there are many different opinions among rabbit owners, there are many who cares a great deal about their rabbits and the benefactors here are of course, the rabbits – which is a good thing.

What is the point of this post anyway? I guess my mind is so random on this one that I am straying away from the main point.

I guess what I am trying to say is that, many sees this as the end of Tru-Luv Rabbitry. There is lack of updates, contents and almost nothing interesting.

The story does not end here. It only closes the chapter to another chapter. But is this the chapter whereby the good old simple days are mentioned? Or perhaps a time of reminiscing of the past?

It is indeed bittersweet to bid them farewell. Like the day gives way to night, every hour passed to give new horizon to the next hour. We do move on from time to time. It is memories that last until the end of time.

Another Possible Regretful Decision

My waiting list is long but my supply list is short. There are quite a number of people who have approached me for one of my Holland Lops for the longest time but most are rejected for various reasons. Some never return and even threw in a few curses in hatred for my “arrogance”. But I am always in awe to see the persistence in some of these potential buyers. I am more than willing to share and help the unsuccessful candidates with bunny that they might face although they do not get any rabbits from me.

I am always happy to see others making improvements through my opinions and advice. One such case is the person that I am passing one of my rabbit to this weekend. I truly respect this person for being so persistent and I am glad that he made the effort to keep in touch. He even updates me on the progress of his rabbits.

With great reluctance, all bunnies at TLR bid farewell to Tru-Luv Truli. They are almost 11 weeks now and it is really difficult to decide which to keep and which to share. If I could, I would like to keep them all – LOL!

And since I am confident that he will have a good life in his new place, I have picked Tru-Luv Truli. As usual, I did a little simple health check on him and take some photos for keep sake.

Clean and well aligned teeth

Clean vent area and it's a BOY!

Very difficult decision indeed...

The bone on this guy is amazing...

Over to you Mr. Recycle…
