Hello all - First time Flemish Giant owner here

I just found this site and I'm already addicted. We're going to the shelter tomorrow and hoping to bring home a beautiful Flemish Giant who it up for adoption there. These forums have such great information for a first time bunny owner.

If anyone has any good name suggestions I'm open to ideas. My son wants to name him either Bunny Kong or Bunzilla. lol

A Flemish Giant - that is awesome! I just saw one of those today at a shelter and she had the most wonderful laid back disposition. She just wanted to be loved on. I kept telling her that she was not a bunny - she was a puppy.
Please post pictures when you get him.
It will be easier to suggest names once I know what he looks like.

mommy to
Tyler - kitty
Oscar - water turtle
Bean - kitty
Frankie - dachshund
Belle - dachshund
Oliver - bunny
Ophelia - bunny
Penelope - bunny
Teddy - bunny -ok I have given up on 4 of a kind and am willing to settle for 2 pairs.
8 fishes - RIP Little Guy and Greta
and Tabatha - October 11, 2006 - rest in peace our sweet angel bunny

Hello and welcome to paw talk. Sorry...I don't do well with names. Both my kids hate the names I picked for them. Maybe I might suggest something once I see your bunny.

Thanks

Thanks for the warm welcome! If we're not home too late I'll try to post pictures tomorrow. I haven't adopted in years and the last time I remember it taking a couple hours to process everything, so we might be wiped out by the time we get home.


The woman at the shelter says he's already about 22 lbs lmao. I can't wait to meet him. I think he's about 2 years old.

First of all -

What a huge bun bun!! I can't wait to see pictures!

For a name, what about something contridictory, like Tiny or Lil Bit? Or what about after the actor Dennis Hopper? Haha!

LOL Don't think I haven't been dreading that. My husband can't come with us because he has a severe dog allergy and the shelter keeps dogs too. Just being there would set him off. So I'm hoping the nice people there will just help me get him to the car and then I'll get my hubby to bring him into the house. I'm so excited I couldn't sleep last night.

Omg he's the sweetest thing ever. He's already coming up to us for scratches. He is HUGE - he came with a dog crate that fits up to 100 lb dogs. LOL

Wow. 22 lbs. I can't even imagine how big he must be. And here I thought my sister's first bunny was a beast at 10 lbs.
