Pepper was the dad of P.T., Lu, Snuggle-Bug, Sandy, Smudge, Smore, Twilight, Lilly, and all of her siblings. He was around 12 pounds and passed away when he was 5 years old. Many people thought he looked big and tough, but don't be fooled by his looks. He was a big push-over, and loved to be scratched on his head! Plus, his favorite treat was oats. He just loved to bury his face into a bowl of them! Pepper passed away due to old age in the month of June, 2011. He was our second Flemish Giant, and he will be missed dearly by everyone.
Twilight was one baby from a litter of seven. She was a huge trouble maker and loved to explore. I think she got it from her dad, Pepper! In her litter, she had 2 sisters, both of them steel colored, and 4 brothers, which were black, white, steel, and light gray. Twilight acted like the queen around here, and she had the biggest hutch. She was a bit spoiled because she was our only black flemish giant, and I lovde her personality. She was the mother of Sparklepaws, Apfel, Houdini, Ringo Starr, and many other bunnies which have been sold to different homes. She got sick in the month of June, 2011, and passed away about a week or two before her dad, Pepper. I am going to miss her, but her spirit lives on in her children.
Lilly was my Steel Flemish. She was the sister of Jack and Twilight. She looked almost EXACTLY like her mom, Lihla. She was a spunky little rabbit who was always all over the place! One of her favorite things to do was to hop out of her cage when we're not looking. She thought it was fun, but we didn't think it is so much fun when we had to chase her around the yard! Sadly, Lilly died of heat exaustion when she was about 2 years old. I'll never forget that big lump of happiness named Lilly...
Smudge was my favorite rabbit, and she was also our biggest, weighing at 16 pounds. She loved people and loved to sit in your arms to be petted and played with. I had her since she was a little baby, but she sadly died because of a massive tumor that could not be treated. We had to put her to sleep...... She had a brother named Smore and a sister named Sandy. We don't have either of them now, for we sold them. The one most supprising thing about Smudge is that she was the runt of her litter. Both of her sibblings were much bigger than her, and she was smaller. But she got bigger than both of her sibblings. She also used to have a very good friend named Checkers, who lived right next to her. It was hard to say good-bye to her because I loved her so much, but I couldn't let her suffer. She had a tumor that is more common in older rabbits, but she got unlucky and got it when she was younger..... 2 years old....
Well, if you look at the news section, you will have herd that Lu died. I really will miss her....... She just died..... no reason at all.....she was born 4/6/08, making her just over a year old..... She really was a sweet, big girl. She may not have liked to be picked up, but I still loved her..... I have been playing with Smudge and Pudden, since they were her sister and mother, and when you see them, you see so much Lu.....
Lihla is the mother of Twilight and her sibblings. Lihla was very nice, and loved to be pet. One of the sad things about Lihla is that she had a litter of eight before, but she didn't take care of them, probably because it was her first litter. When there where only 2 left in the litter, we tried to hand feed them, but they sadly died. She was a happy mother of 7, and was a great, gentle mother to them. She died giving birth to her third litter, and all 8 of the new babies died too.
Pudden is the mom to P.T., Lu, Snugle-Bug, Sandy, Smore, and Smudge. She was 3 years old, and she was very nice. One of the things she liked to do is called Tug-of-war, were she will grab onto you shirt, and won't let go! She used to do this this to get attention, but not very often. Her death was a mystery because she was perfectly healthy, was eating and drinking, but she died..... She will be missed, but now she can be with some of her children again.
If you can tell, Checkers wasn't a Flemish Giant. She was a broken colored Satin, and we got her from a friend that raises them. Checkers and her littermates where going to be used for meat, but I wanted a Satin, and I chose her. She had a 1 out of 10 chance of being a good show rabbit, and turned out to be amazing, winning all kinds of awards! She was also good friends with Smudge. She died of old age, and she started to stop eating. She peacfully died in her cage in March, about a week after her fourth birthday...
