White Rabbit

Last night, we were on our way home from the ranch where we keep our horse.  It's up in the hills in Milpitas, CA. As Rogér was driving the winding road, a white blob in the ditch caught my eye. "Rogér, it's a bunny!"  "Oh cute," he said.  "No, not like a rabbit bunny, a bunny bunny!  Like a pet bunny!  We have to stop and see if we can get him!"

Bunz in the moving box
There were two cars behind us, so we had to drive a ways until we could pull over and turn around.  We passed 5 more cars on the way back to the little guy.  There he was, still chewin on something.  I got out and got about this close to grab him and he started hopping away.  Here come 2 more cars.  I go for him again.  Another car, and another.  I let up a little cuz I would have DIED if he got hit because of me trying to "save" him!

He laid in my lap the whole way home, while Rogér and I debated how heck he ended up out here?! and what the heck we were going to do with him?! I'm guessing someone dumped him.  Could be wrong.  But seriously, how long would a little white bunny last out in the hills?   We had just given away our dog crate, so we had nothing to put him in.  Finally we found a (really small) moving box to make him a home for the night. 

Domino (our dog) was going crazy.  He thought we brought him home a tasty treat for being such a good boy!  Once everyone was settled, (except Domino.  He was hyped up all night whining and scratching at the door.  We got barely any sleep),  we realized that this poor little bunny had lost one of his eyes.  :(  Who dumps a one-eyed, white, domestic bunny on the side of the road to get picked at alive?!!! Come on people!!  There is a great humane society just down the street! 

Well, we couldn't keep him.  Wouldn't be fair to him or Domino.  So I took him to work today and luckily found a kindred spirit who had a place in her home for my little Bunz.  I hope he has a long happy life :)


  1. Oh how sweet! So glad you stopped to get him before he became ... uh, nevermind.

    His new home will be just perfect for him, I'm sure.

  2. Thanks Anabelle! I heard he's doing great so far, and being totally spoiled by his new mom!
