Even though this is a small breed, they need just as much space as the larger bunnies. They are just bursting with energy, and love to tear around the room doing the Bunny-500. My friend just adopted a pair, and they are just the cutest things. They are not really good for small children as they are not as sturdy (they can be easily hurt) or mellow as some of the larger breeds may be.

It makes me sad to here that these rabbits are often given as Easter presents. I was given a Polish Dwarf when I was eight years old, and little Oliver was not even weaned yet! He was very weak and very sick, but no one told me how to take care of a rabbit. Polish Dwarves are very small, very good little escape artists, and one night Oliver managed to get out of the bin he was in and under the bedroom door. The cat bit him (luckily, my mom heard the commotion), but the stress and subsequent infection killed Oliver in less than 12 hours. I was devestated. Please, DO NOT EVER give anyone a rabbit (even if it is your own child) unless you know they will be going to a good forever home. (www.rabbit.org)

I have never, EVER felt anything as soft as a Rex rabbits fur. If only they would let you cuddle them more! I was going through some of my grandmothers old things, and we found a winter coat, trimmed in Rex fur. I nearly started crying. My mini-Rex is the reason I will NEVER wear fur.

my dad has had a giant gourami for the past 6 years and he is roughly 20" long even though he is a old fish he has still got a temper to match a young fish he will not let us put any other fish in with him. We had salmon tail sharks with him that were nearly as big as him and he even killed them. So if you plan on having one of these fish i advise anyone to give them their own tank. you could even put its tank near the tv, Moby (our gourami) loves watching the tv.

I have a grey cockatiel that i got from an auction about 4 years ago. He was pretty good with handling when we first got him, but after we put him in with a female he wasnt. We bred them but the female died shortly after. Only one of the babies survived. Tango(my greys name) took care of the baby until the night it passed away which was about 7 months after birth. Now i have trouble getting him out to handle him. He is really nice and talkative in the cage, but when i finally get him out he gets really nasty and bitey. It takes about 10 min. for him to calm down. I dont know if i just need to handle him more, if it is just bad genes, or what.

I have an adorable holland lop named baby. She is so gentle and sweet and loves being held like a baby. She is very affectionate as well. She licks you when shes happy (which is almost all the time), and when she wants to mate with our other rabbit or wants to go outside, she barks. She has long fluffy fur that is white and carmel. She has little brown tips on her ears and a little bit on her nose. She actually looks very much like a smores. She is very docile and is just like a dog. Rabbits are not boring at all, especially holland lops. She also gets along great with our dog. They cuddle up together on the couch with me while I am reading and never fight. I love her so much! I would definitely suggest a holland lop as a pet to those who have the time and patience.

I own a male Alexandrine Parakeet. He will be 4 yrs old in March. When I bought him the people did not know anything at all about him. They told me he would not learn but maybe 10 words. Needless to say he has an extensive vocabulary, and he knows when to use which words.
It took him about a year to get to know my friends. He would not talk in front of any of them, but now he talks and talks.

I have a 1 year old Green Naped Lorikeet called Ruby. I could not agree more with so many of the comments I have read here, they make the very best companions and Ruby is no exception. She mimics a great deal and takes great pleasure in mimicking the sound of the Microwave finishing; a great way to get me out of the front room and gain my attention. I have taken some great photos of her and placed them on my website. Take a look www.ianrbanks.co.uk.

I got a holland lop last year for christmas from my sister! She is adorable!! She is all black and her name is Zoe. I keep her in a medium sized cage in my room but i let her out on the floor in my house to run around. She is now trained to not use the floor as a bathroom so i let her out more often. She is the most frendliest, nicest rabbit ever!!
