The case of the missing Rabbit

I can’t believe I haven’t had the time to update you guys on Mr Rabbit!  I’m really very sorry it’s taken me so long.

Sadly, I’ve been super poorly with the dreaded morning sickness, hospital trips and life in-between.  Things seem to be easing up and we are slowly getting back on track now.

I cannot believe that the story of Mr Rabbit went viral!  The amount of kind and loving emails we received was truly amazing and they are still coming in.  Sadly, we never did find the original Mr Rabbit, but a lovely lovely reader popped us one in the post.  He was pretty much identical.

So, we popped him in a box, with a lovely carrot and some fairy dust and wrapped him up with a letter from Santa Clause himself.

“Dear Ruby, 

Thank you SO much for letting Mr Rabbit join me on my sleigh for christmas.  He was a wonderful help, delivering all the toys to the boys and girls.

We had a great time.  As a thank you for all his hard work, we have him a lovely bubble bath and a make over so he looks just like knew, but don’t worry, he’s still your Mr Rabbit.

I’ve popped in a little bottle of fairy dust incase he would like to help me next year. 

Have a wonderful day and hug him tight, he’s missed you, 

Santa x”

I am so glad the ‘magic’ is still there, she FULLY believes that her original best friend came home.  I’ve never seen a face light up quite so brightly. He hasn’t left her side and the duo are back to having fun.

We’d love to say a huge thank you to each and every one of you who helped us.  You have no idea how much it means.

We’ve been lucky enough to be nominated for Best Photography Blog 2014 with the MAD Blog Awards again this year!  We attended the event in London last year and got to meet some of the most amazing bloggers out there.  The weekend was a complete delight and we would LOVE to have the chance to attend this year too.

    Loved hearing the end of the story. I purchased one of the rabbits for the granddaughter I will have someday.

    Hi, I just read a jellycat rabbit was found on the teddy bear lost and found Facebook page. Could it be Ruby’s? I think the story you told Ruby is beautiful! I’ve stolen the idea and told my daughter her recently lost bunny is helping the Easter bunny.
