There's a new girl in Papa Bear's life.
She's young and sweet and oh-so-cute.
He likes to stroke her back and nose.
And I don't mind one bit.
She eats hay and pellets and if startled, may leave a pellet or two in her wake.
She is an as-yet-unnamed, 17-week old female Velveteen Lop.
She was supposed to arrive as a surprise in mid-November but work schedules got changed and suddenly we had to wait another 6 weeks and spend 12 hours in the car to get her.
We both think it was worth it.
She seems pretty happy too, hippity-hopping all over our kitchen.
The cats are not amused, but they never do like sharing the house with other critters.
I'm sure they'll get over it.
Her color is "blue torte," but to us she's peach covered in grey covered in adorable.
If you didn't already have 45 reasons to visit our farm, now you have 46.
Hippity-hop on over here and stay for a spell.
We'd love to see you, and so would Velvet. Or Bunny or Hunny or whatever her new name is going to be.
