Rabbit Shows Are Dangerous!
Of course we didn't technically get Sanka-nator from a rabbit show. She's one of the cute bunnies we met last month, at Olivia's house. We were waiting for one of those baby bunnies to be ready to leave her momma and come to live with us at the Bird House, and were we ever excited when the day finally came.
Sanka-nator is named after a brown and blue eyed pig who went by the name Sanka.
Notice? One brown, one blue? A rabbit named after a pig, with "nator" tacked on, because... well, maybe living in a state governed by The Terminator has that affect. I did wonder if Maria would want to name her herself, but she insists that Sankanator is the name, for keeps.
Brown eye, pink nose, blue eye, and totally sweet. She likes to be pet, and Maria has no trouble scooping her up for a snuggle. Apparently her markings do not qualify her for "showing," but we show her all the time and everyone has judged her to be a good bunny, a darling bunny, a welcome to our home bunny.
Yes, this is the Lioneheaded dustbunny that won Alex's heart. And mine. And Geoff's. Oh, and Maria's heart, and William's, Max's too. Yes, it is unanimous: Professor Moriarty is the unexpected, and irresistible, heart winning bunny honey of the rabbit show.
And after a few minutes of this, Alex could not leave for home without the Professor.
I wonder if the camera will ever be able to focus on the fine, wisps of downyness that is Professor Moriarty's signature look. His mane is almost ethereal, and it feels as soft and delightful as it looks.
He is a bunny cloud, but with the dignity of character befitting a Professor.
Where did I leave my pipe?
After tea, a walk about the gardens, then back to my studies. That's the ticket.
*One more thing...
Max may demand I remove these images, or if I am lucky he will never notice them. I am so proud of him, and so amused by his creativity, I cannot resist sharing:
School assignment: "Make a quick hat to wear, with your name tag."
Max insisted he wanted it simple, but that we was not resorting to the suggestion that they "modify a paper sack." He gathered his elements from kitchen drawers, and stapled cardboard to an old hat.
Lunch on the brain?!
I love it. All the parts are glued or epoxy-ed on. Well done, Max.
I raise my glass (of sparkling cider) and say cheers to Max! Bold and daring, creative, and fun Max!
