babe and bob blog welcome image

Welcome to our blog

Hi, thank you for visiting our blog. We are two pet rabbits who live with our unpaid servant Phil. My name is Shadow, but I prefer to be called Babe, the good looking black and white one. My partner Smokey, named after Phil’s first pet rabbit, likes to be called Bob. Because when he cannot make up his mind, he makes Phil laugh by bobbing his head. Yes, he is the grey and white one, with a bad paint job, and we all live together. Free-range whatever that means! Well, I suppose I had better let the slave Phil have his say.

The purpose of this blog is to entertain the visitor; it is not, and never will be a commercial venture.  All I ask is for comments, good and bad, on the blog posts, any feedback is helpful, please provide some.

Babe came into my life first and turned my life, and garden upside down followed four months later by Bob. My tale of two rabbits started at the end of July 2019 and should go on for the next eight to ten years. Why the time limit? A rabbit can only expect to live that long, and me, well, I feel lucky waking up in the morning. Anyway, the blog starts by covering the history so far, before moving on to blog posts in the present.

Babe, Bob and I hope you enjoy your visit, and that we can try to entertain you again soon.
