I would like to introduce everyone to our straw wabbit today. We can’t believe he is still with us as he is fifteen years old! For the occasion, I wore my straw Easter hat. Mom got the wabbit in Switzerland when she was living on Lake Constance in Germany. They were not cheap, and were hard to find as they are all hand made. He is completely made of straw, which is held together with chicken wire. His eyes are made of felt, and his whiskers are some kind of corn husk. He moved around Germany with Mom and even across the Atlantic in a shipping container. He is a pretty cool wabbit with those big ears!
I don’t usually have colored photos, but I thought some of you might be interested to see how he looks in color. Lucky for us, he is house trained, but he always manages to leave a bit of straw behind when he moves. I feel like Gramma Walton in this silly hat, but Mom said it went well being straw.
Today I’m joining the Black and White Sunday Blog Hop, sponsored by Dachshund Nola and Sugar the Golden Retriever. Remember to stop by and visit some of the other blogs on the hop to meet new friends!
