Bad Hare Days

Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to tell you about a book I have written and had published on the controversial subject of live hare coursing in Ireland and the campaign to protect the Irish Hare. It’s called Bad Hare Days (published by Olympia Publishers of London) and in it I recount the ups and downs of campaigning on the issue over three decades.

In addition to exploring the nature of hare coursing from my own perspective as an animal protection campaigner, I also describe the social and psychological impact on campaigners of engaging in a difficult and tension-wrought campaign aimed at changing public opinion on this and other animal protection issues.

As I lack the resources to mount a huge promotional drive of the kind one associates with celebrity authors, I am doing what I can to “spread the word” about the book.

I’m not sure if it would be possible for you to mention the book on your website or in a newsletter. If not, I’d appreciate if perhaps you might tell someone about it. The “Bush Telegraph” can be most effective too!

If interested, you might like to read a review of the book and some further details at the following link:

Denver redux 1

Hello out there!! (cough) Have to compose myself between gasps of relief. (wheeze) It’s Denver!! I was your perennial offsite adoption bun!! I’m the handsome lad who was petted, cuddled, photographed, admired, brushed, and kissed by dozens of people. But…it was always…. had to check w significant other…….or the upcoming cruise….. the dog would be a problem….and meanwhile I lingered, trying to keep my spirits up….self-medicating with food….

My day has finally arrived and I’ve been adopted by one of the new RabbitMatch volunteers!! Thank you Nadinne and Mom!!! Oh happy day!!! No more rejection angst!!!!

Meanwhile the RabbitMatch moms had to get out the WD-40 and a crowbar to pry my photos and bio off the website. It’s true!! Totally rusted in!! Please don’t let that happen to them again!!!! My friend Bodicea is next in line. We’re both loaded with rabbitude. The other buns hope to see you soon!!! Lovingly, Denver.

Our Edgie was found roaming the streets by Joanne and brought to Rabbit Match two weeks ago. She ended up adopting him! He’s a handsome boy and a little charmer. ; )

Joanne didn’t have a chance!

Subject: Pictures of Maggie and her Babies

I visited Maggie and her 4 babies at Mary Clair’s place last evening. We had lost 2 out of the 6 babies but the remaining 4 have thrived and are very happy and healthy.  All the eyes are open and Mary reports they are all very friendly and social.  Maggie too has become very comfortable in her foster home and will beg for carrots from them.  Mary has said they love fostering the babies and would do it again in a second. Attached are a couple of pictures.  Steve


“Way Huger” than the other crew!  Wow!

lucinda-home-1She is great!!  I love her, and the two of us have been bonding quite well – she always runs to greet me when I wake up or come home from being out, and we love chillin together.

She cracks me up though…  let no baby gate stand in her way!  She has figured out all different sorts of ways to escape from the kitchen and get extra run time in – the litterbox thing is going quite well, but not quite well enough to let her have the whole house alllll day quite yet, because she sometimes finds brand new spots she likes to make her own, and always when I least expect it…  but we are allllmost there!  Anyway, things are going great, she keeps me exceedingly entertained, and I just adore her!!!! J But I am now just beginning to see exactly what you meant by her having an IQ of 150… she has got me figured out, and has been keeping me on her toes with her games of kitchen escape.

lucinda-home-2Anyway, thanks for the email!  How are things going with all the other bunnies?  I saw that Diana found a home, that’s great!  She’s a beauty!

Here are a few pictures I took about a week ago, haven’t been able to take some goofy incriminating ones of her getting herself into trouble yet, but when I do, I will send them to you!  :-P

So it’s a guy thing.
Glenn and the missus adopted me but she has some allergies going so
it’s just Glenn and me in the spacious office. Glenn was amazed at my
excellent litterbox habits. Well, didn’t the RabbitMatch volunteers
tell you?? I’m munching on my Bunny Basics T and home grown greens.
What a life!! Bunny kisses to all my pals waiting for their forever
home. Please go visit and adopt one or two of the world’s best buns
soon, OK?? Love Humboldt.

Hot off the press!

The sun hugged the horizon and cast a golden hue on seven volunteers organizing in the park behind Dana Point Library. They gathered Saturday evening and formed a plan…read the rest of the adventure here.

Buon giorno!!


Vivaldi Corleone here, tipping my hat to you all, Rabbit Match people. Yes!! I’m off to my forever home.

You know, they say companion animals and people grow to resemble each other. –Well, my human counterpart and I already look alike. Amazing, no??

We’re both big and golden blonde. His name is Pietro and we live the bachelor life in a big house in Big Bear.

Love to all of you who have been following my story. Vivaldi.

Aren’t I just the handsomest!?
