I am a new BB member from Iowa, slave to a 4 month old Flemish Giant named Roscoe! Our household consists of me, my husband, our 16 year old daughter, two canine furbabies (a lab/shep mix and a mini Aussie) and our latest family member, Roscoe. Roscoe is already quite big, and has been with us about 2-1/2 weeks now. I have some pics on my phone, and will post them a bit later and add a pic of him as my avatar - can't right now, cuz I am at work and don't have access to the pics at the moment.
Roscoe's current home is an extra large wire dog crate in a corner of the living room. It is truly huge and has enough room for a good-sized litter box and I put a shelf at one end for his lounging pleasure. Roscoe is only confined in the crate during the day while we are at work and school and at night for sleepy time - mostly because he isn't neutered yet and while doing very well with litter training (about 98%) he still leaving little marking pellets here and there. I expect that to diminish next month when I've saved up enough to afford his neuter appointment.
Roscoe has the run of the house for about an hour in the morning while I am getting ready for work, and then pretty much runs loose from about 3 p.m. until bedtime around 11 p.m. Eventually, I'd like to have him be free range, but I dunno if I trust my dog, Brego the lab mix. Not because I think Brego will hurt him intentionally, but for two reasons - Brego seems to think that when Roscoe is binkying, that means he wants to wrestle doggy style. And the other is that sometimes Brego (in true alpha fashion) feels he must control Roscoe's movements - and he does this herding thing where he keeps bumping Roscoe in the butt with his nose and herding him back into his crate. Beau, the mini Aussie, isn't sure what to make of the bunny yet - though Roscoe seems to think he's another bun and keeps trying to groom him, LOL - which is reasonable bunny thinking, because honestly, the mini Aussie and Roscoe are pretty much eye to eye size-wise.
I just worry that their interaction might get out of hand, so for now they are supervised 100%. We may get to the point where we feel comfortable, we'll see.
My plan is to move my home office to a spare bedroom corner, and turn my small office into a Bun Room, with multiple levels and run-round tunnels high up so Roscoe has plenty to keep him busy - and where he can lounge and look out the window if he wants to. I'm going to have to enlist the aid of my husband to build it, though, because it needs to be big enough for a Flemish who likes to periscope and check things out. From what I hear, his sire is about 15 pounds, which gives me an idea how sturdy the construction needs to be - and I'll of course document the build with pics and probably start a thread in the habitat section.
Anyway, that's probably more info than you wanted to know about Roscoe and our household! I was a bun "owner" as a teenager, and you'll notice I use the word "owner." I am ashamed to say that while I satisfied the basic needs of the buns I had back then, I certainly did not give them the quality of life they deserved. I wish I had known then what I know now. Things would have been so different. But I am glad I found this site when researching prior to adoption of Roscoe, because now I am a proper bun slave, not an "owner."
