Grand Champion Does in Retirement

Abbatha and Lucia are two retirement English Angora grand champions.   They are now living with Jeannie as pets.  They get to stay out during the day and go back to a commune living at night.

In the evening, Chocolate Kiss, Abbatha and their Lop friend Gus Gus watch their taped TV program together, notice the VCR at the top?

Found on the Net: Hotel Ad with Rabbit Breeders Convention

Hotel site Trivago uses the theme of rabbit breeders convention for the hotel commercial.

Hotel owner Jim would love to have rabbit breeders to stay at his hotel.

Hotel owner Jim welcomes a rabbit.

It's hard enough to get people to understand that there are rabbit shows other than the fairs, it'd even harder to explain that we'd drive or fly a long distance to go to the ARBA national convention and spend 5+ days in hotels in order to be with rabbit people 24 hours a day for the entire duration.     It's an absolute shock to see a hotel TV commercial featuring a rabbit breeders convention.   OK, OK, it does not really say American Rabbit Breeders Association national convention but what other big conventions are there that require us to stay in hotels for a long period of time?     Click the following link and enjoy:
