Meet Pallina The Rabbit
Yesterday I met Pallina a Netherlands Dwarf Sable Marten rabbit. She is soooo adorable and huggable.
The first child of my friend Nikki, pictured here with Grandmother Diane, Pallina which means "little bead" in Italian is 4 1/2 months old. Her rabbit dad is a champion Netherlands Dwarf. Pallina weighs 660 grams or 1 lb. 7 oz. at the moment. She will weigh in at about 2 pounds when she is fully grown. She loves her human mom, Nikki, and kisses her on the nose and purrs. She actually grinds her teeth when she is happy which sounds like purring. Pallina goes for walks on a leash and will soon be trained to use a litter box.
Nikki plans on getting a companion for little Pallina and when she goes to pick him or her up I'll go with them just to see all the bunnies that the breeder raises. No, I can't get one. I must love them from afar. My own little animal family just might find a little bunnie sibling a delicious treat.
