Watching bunnies hippity-hop
makes my heart go flippity-flop.
I've never seen them jump real high,
but think they love it more than I.
No wonder there is a contest
to see which rabbit hops the best.
What's that you say? You did not know?
That's because Europe has the show.
There the bunnies compete to win.
Here the burning desire is thin.
The Angora that hopped for me
was certainly quite cute to see,
but I imagine its nothing
compared to the fluffing
the European bunnies get.
Missing their show brings me regret.
What show, you ask? I'm happy to say -
October 30th is the day
the first European Champ will be crowned
and, maybe, a new pastime found
for lovers of furry hoppers,
pretty pets who are show stoppers
and people like me who like to
watch the fun things that animals do.

and give a bunny a place to play.
Their festival last week was super fun!
I wish I could bring home every last one.
BUT, I've already got a mini-zoo,
so these bunnies must rely on you.
