As we approach the Year of the Rabbit, we are reminded that often, adorable baby rabbits are given as gifts. Sadly, too many are quickly discarded or die.

If your family is not ready for a lifetime commitment to a bunny, get a plush toy rabbit to celebrate the Chinese New Year instead. If you ARE ready for a great companion, check out all the neat bunnies at SaveABunny in Mill Valley, California, at

Hop to it! /Gary, Year of the Rabbit
