Lightbulb Should I ask for a Dwarf Bunny for Christmas?

Well, Christmas is still pretty far away, but today I found Peter's old rabbit toys in the garage and I started to think about getting my second rabbit. I used to love rodents/small furry animals and looked after them really well. I'm researching about them a lot, even though I had experience already. Here is what I'm planning to get:
A large cage, around 2 by 2m (I guess... 4 by 4 feet?)
Plenty of fresh timothy hay, basic/tea pellets, greens, clean water and occasional carrot sticks for treats
Some new, unused toys
Litter, newspaper and a litter box for toilet training
Enough leftover money for vet checkups
And the Netherland Dwarf rabbit itself, preferably a neutralized male (maybe even a buddy!)

Where should I get it? Should I get it at all? I guess having an iPad instead would be the next choice...

If you have the supplies and are committed to taking care of a bunny for the next 7 or so years, then go for it! They are such fun pets. :)

Where are you planning on getting a rabbit a pet store or a breeder. I wouldn't suggest a pet store a breeder know way more then a pet store and you know where they came from.

Yeah a breeder or a shelter is probably the best place to get a bunny. :) Shelters are full of bunnies that need homes, but there are also some really great breeders out there! I have gotten all of my bunnies from breeders.

Just be aware rabbits take a lot of attention and it's a long commitment.
If you have the time for the next few years to care for a rabbit then go for it.

I've heard some dwarves can be aggressive though.

I've been thinking about getting one from a breeder, but my mum said that we have to actually see the bunny in person. Do any of you know a breeder that's in/near Melbourne, VIC?
