I live in a house that seems like a zoo,
A rabbit, a cat and a dog form the crew.
They all get along, it’s a strange sight to see,
The bunny and cat, they frolic with glee!
So, the two of them together, they find themselves frisky,
Should we let the dog play? Or is it just to damn risky?
We love you my friend, but you’re really to large,
To let you come play, being as big as a barge.
So that leaves him alone, our ninety pound Jase,
To join in the fun, to be part of the chase.
But when it’s all over and the day it is done,
They all love each other and all live as one!

Here is the reaction of our rabbit Luna after my daughter stopped petting her. All she wants is a little attention!! As always, please excuse the grainy nature of the photograph.
One of the oddest friendships I have ever seen is the one shared by our cat and rabbit. You would think at the very least that the cat would try to eat the bunny but no, they are the best of friends! Now if I could just get our 90 pound dog into the picture…
The other day I walked into my daughters room and her rabbit was sitting there minding her own business. All of a sudden, she just flopped on her side and laid there, not moving.
Horrified, I immediately thought that I had just witnessed the end of our beloved bunny. Thankfully I could see her breathing so instead of panicking, I took a picture. Shortly after taking this photo, I got on my laptop and Googled “Why did my rabbit just flop on its side?”
Expecting the worst, I was incredibly surprised to learn that this was actually a good thing. Here is what the internet says: “Very relaxed rabbits will roll onto their sides or even on their backs. A favorite way to do this is to first twist one’s head sideways, then fling the rest of the body into line so that the feet fly out to the side. This is called a “flop” and indicates a very happy bunny.”
Luna the rabbit, loving member of the family
Undeniably soft, always loyal
Nonchalant is her story,
Always seeking, agile, affectionate and amazing

Here is a post that has nothing to do with hiking!
We have three members of our family who bring a great deal of happiness to the humans in our house. You have seen Jase a few times and he is the biggest of the three. Please don’t make the mistake of thinking that because he is the largest animal that he rules the roost. He takes the brunt of the abuse from the other two. (Never mean spirited!)
Luna, the rabbit, can be the most intimidating of the three. Totally unassuming, she roams around the house and drinks water out of the dogs water dish and will not let him drink until she is finished! If he tries, Luna will let him know he needs to wait. Hmmm…the dog weighs 90 pounds!
Serius the cat, thinks that he is stealthy but he is not to good at it. He spends most of his time attacking the dog (never maliciously) and waits for the dog to respond. Much to his dismay, the dog never even tries to retaliate. But he keeps trying.
Anyway, it’s great having three animals with such different personalities in the house. Even though they kind of harass each other from time to time, it’s always nice to see the rabbit and the cat sleeping together or the dog and the cat sitting with each other on the couch. Each one is a full member of the family!!!
