We went and bought another rabbit.
A father and daughter team rescue rabbits. They have a shed in their back yard packed floor to ceiling with hutches. And every hutch contains a lovable bun.
They have giant rabbits- things as big as bulldogs, only with floppy ears and lolloping legs. One of them was at liberty. It lummoxed round the shed trying to trip people up.
I don't want one of those.
The daughter said we needed to get a female because two males, even if neutered, will fight. So we had to pass on the half-lionhead with the puffy face that Ailz wanted because it was so ugly.
And we settled on Rachel. Rachel the rabbit. She's all subtle shades of fawn and ginger.
And about three times the size of little Tosh.
She likes nothing better than to lie on the settee and watch TV. Apparently.
They're going to get her neutered for us and we take delivery next saturday.
Ailz is in the bedroom getting dressed. She's singing "My bunny lies over the ocean"
Oh, bring back my bunny to me.
