~ Maverik ~

Such a sad week for us here at Our Little Acorn Cottage.
Our little Maverik passed away.
For those of you who don't know, Maverik was our bunny.
I'm pretty sure he died from old age. He was old when we rescued him.
Someone took Maverik to the Animal Sanctuary and told them to feed him to their eagle.
I'm so glad that our friends thought to call us to see if we wanted him.
Maverik is NOT eagle food.
I love this picture of Maverik and Annie.
Annie is Kent's dog and she is so sweet and gentle she knew Maverik was part of our family and she would never hurt him.
He didn't like living in his cage, (can't say that I blame him) so one day we turned him loose hoping he would stay and he did!
He loved hopping around our yard and would go next door to Grandma Bliss' house but he never went any farther than that.
Such a sweet little guy. We will miss him.


  1. So sorry for the loss of your little rescue was so great that he got to live out his life with your family.

  2. Sorry to read about your bunny...we have a bunny too...I think its called a lion faced or head? It is so cute and pretty tame....I feel bad for him spending so much time in his hutch especially in the winter. He lives on our covered deck. Did you have to clip your bunny's teeth? We have tried giving different chew things but his teeth grows like a vampire bunny and we have to clip them every few months. I worry about letting him roam our backyard cuz we have so many neighborhood cats, our dogs get along with him fine, they are all about the same size(2 maltese and a pom)
    Hope you have a Great Weekend!
    Kind Regards,
