They Are Not Peter Cottontail

Easter is almost here. The bunnies around my house are becoming excited. They have invited even more to their bunny bounce. Here is one of the new arrivals. He, fortunately, would rather sit than bounce.
The same cannot be said of this long-eared rodent. He definitely loves jumping as high in the air as he possibly can. He has attached himself to my son, who has dubbed him 'Rodney'.
This character showed up just a few days ago, and even the other rabbits are not sure what to make of him. He told me that his name is Homer, but I'm not sure that I believe him. You have to watch out for jackalopes. They are not real reliable. Just as an aside, I think the Olympic committee really missed out on something when they didn't make a jackalope the mascot of the 2002 winter games in Salt Lake City. What better icon of the American West is there? Think of all the postcards they could have sold.
