Grace the dog has always been used to having other species around. His mom, Lydia DeRoche is an animal trainer in New York City that helps different species of animals get along. Grace already is well adjusted to his rat roommates and loves spending time with them. So when DeRoche brought home a rabbit to look after while it healed from surgery, she didn’t think there would be any issues.
The first time Grace was introduced to Bob the rabbit, Grace thought Bob would be perfect for lunch. As Bob healed, DeRoche started seeing just how charming he was (even though Grace still wanted to eat him) and decided to keep him. “Bob was supposed to go back to the sanctuary.” DeRoche had said. But she became rather smitten with the white rabbit.
At first things were not smooth sailing, but over time Grace started seeing the charm in Bob. They started hanging out together, snacking together, and even mimicking one another. Grace changed her mind about lunch and saw just how much fun a new rabbit friend could be. Now the two are great friends even though Bob sometimes has eyes for another dog.
