~ The Tale of Peter Rabbit, 1902
Ever since I was a young girl, I have shared a common love with that of the famed English children's author Beatrix Potter.
The love of rabbits.
At one point in time, the count I owned was numbered in the teens.
There is something about rabbits that appeals to my personality. As with Miss Potter, I used to talk to mine, endlessly. Almost all of my spare time was spent either taking care of them, or working to earn pocket-money in order to buy their rabbit food.
They were faithful companion pets.
Several years ago my grandchildren and I were spending a Saturday at one of the local Oktoberfest arts and crafts festivals. Upon leaving at the end of the day, we had acquired another family member.....a rabbit.
His name is "Snuggles" and this October he will be twelve years old !
A sweet little boy, who lives up to his namesake extremely well, he loves nothing more than to give kisses.
I do believe Miss Potter would have written a book about him.
