Happy First Birthday, Ralphie!

I was planning to put Sailboat on hiatus for a little while for reasons I won't go into now but I wouldn't miss writing this post for the world.

Today is Ralphie's first birthday! Yay! Okay, so it's not technically his birthday, he was between 6 & 8 weeks old when I adopted him & today marks one year since I first brought him home so I'm just calling it his birthday anyway!  Everyone deserves to have a birthday celebration, even bunnies!
I can't even begin to explain how happy this little guy makes me. I've watched him grow from a super tiny & quite shy little bunny into this incredibly cheeky and inquisitive ball of fluff. I'm not very good at talking to people if I'm ever upset so Ralphie & I have had many late night chats where he'll look up at me and gently lick my hand almost letting me know that everything will be okay in the end.
He's naughty, chews on my furniture, climbs into my wardrobe and sometimes refuses to hop back into his cage for bed time but I wouldn't have him any other way & I simply can't imagine my life without him. He's my baby!
Happy Birthday Ralphie.
Lots of Love, Mama.
xoxo

  5. He is such a cutie, I had a guineapig as a child and loved him so much! I've always wanted a rabbit but I'm not sure if I could replace my first pet so never had another since. Seeing this post is adorable though and makes me want one all over again!

    I'm eagerly awaiting my Lily's (black lab) 1st birthday - 20th of November! She's my world and I'm going to get her presents, a party hat and a special doggy birthday cake. (I know some people think it's ridiculous, but until you have a pet, you just don't understand!)

  15. I had a lionhead-lop bunny a few years back, he was a gorgeous sandy colour with darker patches. He was a little bugger and chewed everything!! But he was a lovely little bunny :)

    I now have a netherland dwarf rabbit who is so cute ^_^

    Happy Birthday Bunny
