Our Big Bunny Brother

Hello again everyone!

We thought we would share some pictures from this summer when our big bunny brother ( we got the idea of a bunny related blog from  Ludo's Blog) who unfortunately passed away in his sleep a few months ago, so it would be a nice reminder for him too.
His was a rescue bunny (Mum is bunny mad, she has had rabbits even before dogs, she even had 7 rescue buns at one point!) and his name was affectionately 'Lump', because he was huge, well as bunnies go. He was a Continental Giant x Papillon, but to us he was just a very big bun!
So here me, on my first meeting with Lump, I was only 8 weeks old and he seemed very big and scary to me!

Are we related Mr Rabbit?......are you a harlequin too?

Mum....this dog seems kinda different to me....

R.I.P Lump, we will see you at the bridge!

I was a very good boy upon meeting the big bun, Daisy-Boo showed me how to behave. Dante on the other hand was banned around the rabbits, we could not condition him to them no matter how hard Mum  tried, so she thought it was  better to be safe than sorry! I thought he was a weird dog at first and tried to make him play....but he wasn't bothered and in the end I just sat in the sunshine watching him eat grass. ( I tried it, it wasn't that nice)

These pictures are making us crave Summer, we are all bored of the cold dark nights now!




  1. Sorry to hear about Lump. Lump must have been a giant of a bunny because in the pictures Sampson looks the same size. They almost look like brothers. :)

  2. Sorry to hear about his passing. He was a BIG bunny

  3. Wow, Lump was a big bunny. My Vickie loves bunnies too. She had a big white rabbit for years. Thanks for telling us about Lump.

  4. Sorry to hear about Lump... it seems like he had a good life full of furry and human friends though! What a beautiful bunny he was... Thanks for sharing.

    Is mom having a hard time looking for the followers button? Anyway, I'm glad you've been a good boy when you met Lump.

    See you later, Banana.

  14. Hi Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's great to meet you too.

    I loved the pictures of Lump. My family kept rabbits in the past before I came to live here.

    You were obviously very well-behaved with your big bunny brother. You must all miss him. He was beautiful.

    Love and licks, Winnie

  15. Sampson, you are too too cute.

  16. Awww! My mommy LOVES bunnies -- mommy had doggies way before bunnies, but her doggie passed before she got married and they weren't allowed to have a doggie in their apartment, so they got bunnies! Oh my goshies, they were so cute. It's adorable that you two look so much alike!

    Woofs & hugs, <3

    Lump looked like a great bunny. How cool that you had a bunny brofur too! Binky free Lump.
    Mum belongs to a rabbit forum called Rabbits united that rescue based, maybe your Mum would like it?

    I had a bunny brother too when I was a young pup, his name was Benjamin and he was black like me ! He too went to the rainbow bridge... :-( I miss him lots.
