My friend and HRC cohort Marlene Wilhelm visited Scot Haney on WFSB’s Better Connecticut on April 1, 2010 on behalf of The House Rabbit Connection. We discussed why parents should not include rabbits in Easter baskets. Rabbits can live 14 years and potential owners should be prepared for taking care of the entire lifespan of the pet.
Beckett was a frisky bunny with his new stuffed animal bunny, but this is exactly why you should fix your bunnies! HRC spays and neuters every rabbit before we adopt them out.
Marlene did most of the talking. I was trying to keep Beckett from misbehaving too much, and changing the rating of Better Connecticut from G to XXX!
This blog is about to change a bit and get more focus. I have just been accepted as a new board member of the House Rabbit Connection and I’m TOTALLY excited!
I’m going to my first meeting this coming Sunday. As extroverted as I am, I’m a wallflower when I walk into a room of strangers who all know each other, so I’m really happy that I’ll be carpooling with Paula Raposa, the president of the HRC. (Paula, pls correct me if I have your position wrong!) We’ll get to know each other a bit better and I’ll walk in with a friend. Thanks, Paula, for being so cool!
Now, about the blog. But it’s not only the blog, it may just be a revival of the BunnyBlab podcast series, too! The first 9 were mainly informational. Meant for people who were considering a bunny as a pet or who had one (or more) and didn’t know what to do with them. I think the next several podcasts will be interviews or at least discussions with other HRC board members and HRC members. I can even use the quarterly HRC newsletter to get a request out there (and maybe get a few more listeners, too!).
If you have suggestions about topics for future podcasts or have great bunny stories to share, email me and let me know! Or comment on this post. Or send a carrier pigeon. Or let Santa know (I know he’s coming for at least Paul this year!).
Anyway, I’m thrilled to be the House Rabbit Connection’s newest board member. Hopefully much fun and good will come from my new organization and my blog and podcast series, too.
Stay tuned for more…
