In brighter news, my Dutch doe is most definitely pregnant and I'm honestly surprised she hasn't popped yet she's getting so darned huge. She's not due to kindle for another five days yet, but dang. Thankfully, she's not a maiden doe :)
Skipper always kind of reminded me of another rabbit I had kept several months back named Ms. Gandolf. She was a chinchilla colored rabbit with the thickest coat I have ever seen. When I brought her inside she started shedding it out in fistfuls. She was a tough old girl (she was at least 5-6 years old) but extremely underweight, worse than Skipper (Skip was so bad because of her epilepsy). She would come up and lick your feet and ankles if you where barefoot. Just hop over and go '-licklick- Hey, hold me. Now.'
Just a cuddly, shedding, ball of gray fluff. She trekked on for about three months after the initial rescue before passing in her sleep one night.
The Checkered Giant I took in along with her made a full recovery and went on to live with a very happy owner. If I remember correctly she did show rabbits, he was quite the looker. Left at a proper weight and very sassy, he had bad sores on his feet but those healed fast with proper care.
Wait! I'll fix it....
