Over the years, I have gotten everything from confusion, surprise, delight to disgust. Well, only once in disgust, but she grew up looking at rabbits in a completely different way. Never even as pets. But most of the time I get surprise. Then they usually ask "Do you have children?" because many people associate rabbits as a child's pet. (boy, far from it, they are not easy nor cheap pets)
I think the most shocked I'd ever seen anyone was a from a UPS delivery guy. He was delivering a package, and Bailey went up to greet him when I opened the door. (my other two are always way too freaked out when strangers first arrive, but not Bailey)
Anyways. the UPS guy looked baffled, just staring down at her as she sniffed his shoe. It was like he was trying to figure out what she was at first. I just smiled and responded, "uh, yeah, it's a rabbit." He then just stared at her as he slowly handed me the thing to sign. He didn't even look at me.
Then Bailey proceeded to hop past him out into the main apartment complex hallway. I told Bailey, "No, Bailey, get back in here!" and she turned around and came back in. Boy, if I thought he looked baffled before. I finished signing and handed it to him, he shook his head, and said, "Wow" and off he went.
I got a real kick out of that.
So what response do you usually get?
