My dad loves his ladies. He spends hours with them every day. He puts out a lawn chair and sits in the middle of their house, letting them jump all over him. They clamber to him for bread, their special treat. They’ve been taught to perform a trick for it – they jump! He makes them work for the bread, but he throws the rest of the food on the ground and watches them run, pushing each other out of the way to get the food first. And they get fresh water daily. Lucky ladies!

They’re a secret. Their house is built in the back of his property, locked and gated away so the neighbors don’t know. But they’re there – and they’re not going anywhere! My dad really, really loves his ladies.

Here are the ladies jumping up to get bread from me. A little trick my dad taught them! It’s actually slightly terrifying at first. They are fast and aggressive! Those ladies know what they want and how to get it.

The ladies have some neighbors too – bunnies! They are so soft and adorable, and my nieces have taken to carrying the small babies in their shirts.
