Ten years ago, sometime between now and the first week of May, Mr. Shadow was born. We brought him home on Independence Day when he was two months or so old. He bounced into our lives with such joyous abandon. He always keeps us smiling.
He still runs around like a crazy bunny, but not as often or fast. He still wants to hop onto everything and leap from furniture piece to furniture piece. The bunny spirit is very willing, but the body can’t keep up anymore and he has started to miss the mark. We aren’t fond of looking at bunny x-rays at the vet. So we keep a close eye on his activities. We relocate him as a distraction when he is clearly thinking about training for the bunny Olympics one more time.
