She's a decent little bun and I think he'll like her.
But the person I bought her from mentioned he changed the pedigree to his own rabbitry name. He mentioned this AFTER I had her loaded in my car and was ready to go. It was like an after thought. I had briefly paused to thank he again for selling the bun to my friend.
So I figured I'd contact the original breeder and ask about that. The breeder recognized the doe but said it wasn't her doe, and she didn't recognize the buck at all. And then gave me the name of the person who owned the doe and suggested I contact them. I'm currently waiting to hear back.
So I"m thinking to myself... hmm..... what's going on here? Just who is this young rabbit then?
I don't know. I do know my friend will be happy with her regardless as she'll fit his needs nicely enough. But I'm just ... annoyed would be a good word.
When one buys a pedigreed rabbit (a pedigree simply means you have a piece of paper listing all the parents and grandparents known for at least three generations). Anyways, when you buy a rabbit like that...you leave the pedigree alone. You don't go around changing the name on it. You especially DO NOT remove the original breeders name and put your own on it. If you don't like the name given to the rabbit, then give it a call name. For instance I have a bunny name ATHP's Butterscotched. I call her Scotch (that's her call name). I've sold a bun that I names ATHP's DD1. her new owner called her silhouette. That works for me just fine. She didn't change her "paper" name, she just used a name to identify her that she liked better. NO biggie.
But to change a rabbits name...for instance from ATHP's Jaren to made up rabbitry name of Benny's Orin would be WRONG. That's taking credit for another person's work. It's at times making yourself look like a better breeder than what you are. It's lying. Plain and simple...it's lying. So just don't go round doing it. For me it means I'd be VERY hesitant to by from the breeder again unless the animal involved was an exceptional one.
