|Snappy pants huh?|
I wonder if my finger is in his cage and if he bit it?
|Yeah to people who take the time to write on photos so you know what's going on many years later!|
|Just a guess, but I"m thinking that this book (yes, I still have my childhood books..) is where the inspiration came from for the name... Apparently 3 years olds don't go for orginality. :)))|
Hoppity, from what i recall didn't like being captured and put back in his cage... why would he I suppose... We had him for many years....and i think he started to think of it like game of keep away. Hiding in the rhubarb, and circling the shed, just out of reach waiting to see which way she was coming from next. I wonder if she still has scars from the scratches once she got hold of him....
|Here we are gardening together.....|
|And this is from this summer. My beautiful sweet Sophie.|
I am reading about Beatrix Potter, and as you can see she is enthralled with the story.
(the cage and the fencing save the chasing and the scratching...:))))
Of course we have lots of other creatures now... including a new mouse named Finnigan O'Squeak. (I am a bit prone to mice also... but that's a story for some other day....)
There is just something about the rabbits I guess.
They inspire art in the form of drawings as well as clay... and now in silver....
We certainly don't need any more rabbits, or any more anything for that matter... but I still look every year in the 4-H tent at the Common Ground Fair; just in case there is a big, soft golden colored rabbit there...
a modern day Hoppity perhaps?
