I finally captured a photo of one of Mario's little quirks. He will clean his ears in the typical bunny fashion of grabbing them between his two front paws and holding them while he licks them clean. But I guess sometimes he gets lazy and he'll pin an ear against the side of something and give it a good licking that way.
I did not foresee how Mario would totally steal the show.
It has been an incredible surprise and blessing at how everyone has reacted to Mario. Over the years a lot of my running blog readers have come and gone, but the rabbit blogger friends have been a consistent bunch. When I don't feel like blogging about myself or my running I still try to get up a "Monday Mario" for everyone to enjoy. I suppose this is as much of a rabbit blog as a running blog now.
I feel incredibly proud and fortunate that I can share stories of Mario in a venue which could lead to other rabbits finding homes. Rabbits have huge personalities and give so much love. If Mario can show this to even one person out there it would give me so much joy and satisfaction. I was connected to Mario through Petfinder and I feel like this has come full circle in some crazy little way.
