Sorry for the delay, it's been a busy few days. If you have not guessed yet, the mystery animal is a bunny named Clover! She is a 3 month old mini lop bunny from Rachel. Since she was just spayed on Thursday, I've been keeping her a little less active. That did not stop her tonight as she had lots of energy and was doing what is called "bunny binkies" where they tear around the house.
Here she is jumping to grab a carrot from the top of the cardboard platform box.
As you can see in this photo, she is settling in nicely. She seems to like lying over the vent with her feet back which is evidence of a relaxed bunny!
Here are a few photos of the dogs. Right now, they are separated but all can see each other. Overall, I'm very pleased with how they are doing. The dogs are learning she is part of the family, and Clover is getting used to them.
Now, of course, since I am a trainer, I'm hoping to clicker train Clover too. Just like dogs, they can learn different behaviors. I know this will be a fun experience for both of us. One thing for sure is that baby bunnies are like puppies. They truly want to just get a "taste" of everything, so I've had to keep a close watch on any wooden or plastic object. This is where the cardboard and phone books have been coming in handy. I just redirect her to those items to save the furniture. We're also working on litter box training, but I'm positive she will get that too!
Anyway, that was the big suspense!!
