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…
Tag Archives: Christmas
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!
I like how they put it in the Matrix movie and to quote Santosh Kalwar:
“Every beginning has an end and every end has a new beginning, don’t worry, broken soul, life will one day come to an end. ”
I must say that I am bidding my readers farewell on a high note. It has been 8 long and hard years since I started this wonderful journey raising Holland Lops in Malaysia. My best and worst experiences was obtained through this hobby. I can now look back and cherish all the beautiful irreplaceable moments from the many wonderful births to the friendships that will last for a lifetime.
Perhaps, I will one day look back and sing to the tunes and words of Adele’s “When We Were Young”. But really, I will be proud to say that “I have been there and done that”. No regrets at all…
I like to think that I have been touched by the many gorgeous rabbits that graced my rabbitry. I also hope that those who have been touched and found wonder and love in a Tru-Luv rabbit have had their lives changed forever. Indeed, every single rabbit I have raised and responsible for bringing into this world have left an imprint in my heart.
Just because it is selfish to keep holding on even when it means nothing is the only reason for me to bid farewell. In the words of Don McLean when he sung the song “Vincent”, I can only say that “this side of the world was never meant for one as beautiful as you – The Holland Lop”.
So it has been the tradition for me to capture and share the Christmas spirit through photos of my rabbits in the Christmas theme, the photo above will indeed mark the Last Christmas for Tru-Luv Rabbitry.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all my readers and friends for your amazing support throughout the years. It has been a pleasure writing and sharing all these years. I hope you have enjoyed (and continue to enjoy) this blog as much as I have.
Here wishing everyone a joyful and warm Christmas wherever you are!
God bless all of you…
This weblog was started back in 18th June 2007 and this is the 1421st post. Throughout the years, the post entitled “How Should A 8 Weeks Old Look Like” remains as the #1 top post with 10,033 views to date. However, this post contains photos of different rabbits growing up and I feel that is not as effective as using just one litter of kits to highlight their week by week development.
Today I would like to re-post photos of baby rabbits as well as a couple of new photos to emphasize how important it is that baby rabbits should be kept with their mothers until the age of 8 weeks.
The first week of a kit’s life….
The second week…
The third week…
The fourth week…
The fifth week…
The sixth week…
Weaning starts at the seventh week and they will be separated from their dam at the eight week.
The Seventh Week…
I have started the weaning process by separating them from their dam.
The eighth week…
How time flies and we are at our final week. Since Christmas is over now, we will no longer have the Christmas themed photography. The two kits are growing up beautifully and they are fully weaned. Ear length seemed to have increased but nothing to worry about as their head will continue to grow and in time, every part of their body will balance out.
At this age they are usually ready to go to their new homes but these two cuties are not going anywhere.
Last but not least I must give credit where credit is due. I want to thank DC Rabbitry for making this otter project possible. Thank you very much for the gorgeous blue otter doe. A great mom right from the start. I reckon she will be a great producer.
Tis the season to be jolly! It’s time of the year again that we have Christmas photoshoot at Tru-Luv Rabbitry.
I cannot believe that it will be another year in the hobby and it is always wonderful to take Christmas portraits for the bunnies.
The rainfall does help a lot with cooling them down and they are mostly in good condition at this time of the year.
