12 Surprising Differences in Owning Dogs and Rabbits

1. Your rabbit will take roughly a year to warm up to you (mine took almost a year and a half); your dog loves you the minute you promise her a nice warm home.

“I love you so much you’re the best thing that has ever happened to me!”

2. It’s adorable when your bunny goes into crazed happy running mode; it’s downright frightening when your dog does

3. They have very very different ways of expressing their (sexual) love for you.

4. Even when they’re feeling less loving (read:horny), the difference is palpable.

“Okay Rambo, you can have as many treats as you want. Take my children, I don’t care! Just stop looking at me like that!”

6. At times it feels like your rabbit might do a better job guarding your house than your dog will.

“Go Chin-Chin! Attack!” “No dude what’re you doing?!”

7. Your dog can physically force you to do stuff. While your rabbit, well.

They’re pretty content as long as they’ve got food.

Dogs, on the other hand… Sure aren’t afraid of getting physical.

8. They’re both kind of useful around the house I guess…

And dogs are always eager to return a favour
