Captain and Echo

It's been a long time between posts.

I feel that I should add that I have now got two rampaging bundles of fluff. My little man's name is Captain and he is a rather small English Spot rabbit. 

He's a sweetheart. He loves orange pieces and banana and is very well trained. I had him for about five months before I took him to the Rabbit Run-away Orphanage to get him a friend. It took two trips since he managed to alienate all the female rabbits the first time round by attempting to mate with them immediately. One large bunny bopped him on the head and stunned him a bit. The second trip was a winner, as he seemed to have learnt his lesson and I returned home with Captain and little Echo.

Echo spent the first few months with one ear up. She was very thin to start with, but has fattened up quickly. She is a BIG rabbit. I can hold Cap with one hand but Echo needs two hands and some arm space.

She is easily frightened and still doesn't trust people. She is only happy to be patted when Captain is close by.

Captain spends a lot of time showing off for her. He runs and jumps and gets very put out if she doesn't pay him attention. She tries to pretend she doesn't care, but if Cap is out of sight for too long she gets anxious.
