Well I've been taking advantage of the threads since we got Chubs but I just like this idea of formal introduction- then it's easy to remember which members have which bunnies (or the other way around...haha).
Chubs is a fawn colored Holland Lop. He's about 1 1/2 years old and neutered. I found him on craigslist, a girl who was graduating college and said she couldn't take him with her when she moved. She did take excellent care of him though. He was a house bunny with her from about 7 weeks and she did a good job potty training him and got him neutered an everything. I think she was sad to give him up, but I send her pictures once in a while.
How to describe the personality of Chubs...he can be very lovey when he wants to be. Particularly when he is sleepy, he loves to sit next to you or crawl on your lap and let you give him a good rub down. He can also be very grumpy-like and not want much to do with you for that while except to be in the same room. He doesn't like to be picked up like most rabbits and will give you a good thump when you put him down to remind you! He loves to do binkies and zooms and mostly he loves to eat! When I get up in the morning and he knows I'm going to give him half of his veggies and some pellets..he runs circles around my feet and waits while I load up his bowl, and then chases me from the kitchen edge (because he won't step foot on tile) to his corner where I put his bowl down. Then he immediatly eats all the veggies and leaves the pellets for about an hour...then eats those too. His favorite veggies are cilantro, parsley, romaine lettuce and cellery. He also loves his hay- quite the little eater!
He has some quirks which I love. I mentioned the tile. I can put a blanket or rug in the middle of the kitchen and he will run around the edge for a while and eventually give up and lay down. He absolutely will not cross the tile, doesn't matter if it's two feet or four inches. He will stay put on the nice safe cloth. He loves his cardboard boxes and sleeps in the little tunnel one we've given him every night. He also loves our papazan chair and lays under that pretty often. He's super good inside the house and is not a chewer or a digger. He only chews on his boxes and apple twigs when I give him those. When we take him outside though, he loves to dig in the dirt! He also does huge binkies outside and zooms all over. We have a pretty covered yard and he sticks close enough to us that we've let him run a bit out there (with close supervision!). When he runs int he grass, he looks like a tiny dog with his ears flopping.
In short...I've never had bunnies before. I have always loved animals and I started researching bunnies (this site was incredibly helpful by the way!) and decided I had to have one. I looked on craigslist for about three weeks before we stumbled upon Chubs and now I'm hooked. As my boyfriend (and Chubs other slave) likes to point out...we've become bunny crazy! We're searching for the right 2nd bunny and are going to take on the task of bonding once we find them. I've posted quite a bit already on the bonding forum about all that. And oh yeah, me, haha. I'm 22, a senior in college- graduating in December with a social work degree. Here's a couple pictures.
Being curious as usual...

I could add pictures all day... Anyways, this is getting too long so I will wrap it up.
