In the Beginning

I woke up early this morning and couldn't go back to sleep, so I started going through the older pictures on the camera card. 

I found images of the girls' first kits.  Becky, Charlotte and Lydia each had saved up enough money to buy one kit.  They spent about two months stalking the blog of the closest breeder, and each selected her bunny.  We made the trip to Frulingskabine Microfarm near Sonora, and three hours later we were home with these cuties:

Cream Puff, left, died in Becky's arms a few months later.  We and the vet suspect she had some kind of heart defect.  Lydia's Snowball, center, has earned her legs for a Grand Champion certificate.  She'll be getting registered at Turlock on Saturday.  She's kindled three litters of kits and is a phenomenal mother.  Charlotte's Ninja, right, is a Grand Champion.

It's been almost two and a half years since this picture was taken.  And it's been a grand experience.
