Our New Fury Friend
Tyler turned 14 a week ago Friday. He got lots of cash and spent the better part of last week deciding what he could buy with his big windfall.

Hours were spent online looking at the newest game systems, paint ball and air soft guns, and assorted other items.

I suggested that he save the money in his bank account. To which I was rewarded with one of those "Oh please Mom" looks.

A couple of days ago we were in the local pet store and he spotted this really fancy bunny hutch. Tyler loves all animals and he especially loved our Rabbits until there death a few years ago.

He asked his Dad and I if he could buy the Rabbit house and get himself a new bunny? We agreed as long as he took "sole" responsibility for the rabbits care and well being.

I will also add that we made him wait a couple of days to really think about it. I wanted to make sure this wasn't an impulsive decision.

Yesterday after Church he said he still really wanted to get a rabbit. So off the whole family went to buy the bunny house.

Then we had to find the perfect bunny.

We found a breeder not to far from our house. She had an exotic bird farm with all kinds of animals that I had never seen before. That is a post all in itself.

Anyway, he fell in love with this cute little six week old bunny. He is a lions mane bunny. He has a puffy mane just like a lion and he is oh so very cute. His name is either Simba or Peanut. Tyler can't decide.

Here are Garrett, Samantha, and Tyler with the new bunny. Samantha loves the fact that Tyler lets her brush its hair. The bunny seems to like it too!

This morning Samantha and I helped him put a coat of Thompson's weather proofing wood seal on his new purchase. Here they are working away.

Paige decided she wanted to live in the little house with the bunny. I am sure her brother's wouldn't mind locking her in there every once in a while.
I must say this little bunny is going to live like a king.

I guess that is only fitting for a bunny named after the King of the Forrest.

What a cute bunny, and what a nice hutch. That's a much better gift than video games. Good choice!
