Our New Rabbits!

Hey neighbors!

We have a new hobby!  We are now raising Netherland Dwarf rabbits.  My older two used to raise and show rabbits years ago.  Now my younger two daughters and I are trying to raise some.  I don't know if they will show at all, that is something we will decide later.



We purchased an aluminum shed to house our rabbits so they will be warm during the winter and we will have a fan to help keep them cool in the summer.  We have both hanging and stacking cages.  Dwarf rabbits take less room which is one reason why we chose them.  We have had a difficult time finding purebred dwarfs and have had to travel two hours or more to find them.



We have been working on the shed the past week and finally finished it.  Today we finally got everyone moved in and settled into place.  We will be putting name tags on each cage in the next couple of days.


Today we also named them.  We decided to stick with food names.  We have three bucks, named Marmalade, Marshmallow, and Coconut.  The does are: Nutty Bar, Brownie, Little Smokie, Oreo, Jalapeno, Vanilla, Brown Sugar and PB for Peanut Butter.  I will try to keep you all updated on how this hobby proceeds.



I have included a few pictures.  Enjoy!

Used to raise rabbits as a kid and showed them. Loved that, great memories. We also had an indoor bunny, which I'm sure these could be. Really would like another one.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
