Meet Bluebell the giant rescue rabbit – who was raised with Yorkshire Terriers and thinks she’s a DOG.
The dopey bunny – who is 3ft long and blind – has her own dog bed, comes when called and waits for her owner at the front door.
She is so loyal and obedient she is often mistaken for a pooch when people come to visit – until they spot her floppy ears, which are almost nine inches long.
And though her favourite snacks are kale and Rich Tea biscuits, she often sneaks treats from the dinner table like a naughty puppy.
Owner Carol Murray, who is a dog groomer, said her seven-year-old Great Continental rabbit Bluebell, who weighs a whopping 1.5 stone, has the run of the house.
The 45-year-old, of Barnston, Merseyside, said: “I got her three years ago and I absolutely adore her.
“She follows me around and sits on the couch in the living room. When people see me stroking her they think she’s a dog – and then they realise she’s a rabbit.
“She’s got this big round dog bed and her own bedroom.
“If she sees dogs she definitely stands her ground. Her old owner used to have a Dalmatian and Bluebell would chase it all over the place.
“She has a brilliant sense of smell as well, but she does bump into some of the furniture in the front room now she can’t see.”
Carol said she used to dress Bluebell in tracksuits and little outfits but they don’t fit her any more – because she’s doubled in size.
She also recently lost her eyesight due to old age but is doing well, as Giant Continentals usually only live until they’re five or six.
Mum-of-one Carol said: “She was rescued from a house that was a mess. She was sharing a cage with six Yorkies and ten rats. And then it was just Bluebell.
“She had a hole in one ear, which we think was from a cigarette burn, and she had part of her other ear pecked off by a parrot.
“Even so, she’s dead friendly.
“When I’ve been out and I come back home she’ll hear me at the door and start flicking her ears. It’s so cute.”
Carol added that cheeky Bluebell is so chilled out, she stretches herself across the entire sofa – and even nicks food from the dinner table.
She said: “For breakfast she has Shredded Wheat or banana and sultanas, then for lunch she has black kale, red hay and pellets and at about 8pm she has a Rich Tea biscuit.
“Even though she has her own food, she does pinch ours – probably more so when she could see, though. With her old owner she would always nick McDonald’s chips.
“If you’re having a sandwich she will just come over and nick the salad. She’ll even take it out of your mouth.
“She would chase you for a Jaffa Cake because the smell drives her crazy but she can’t eat them.
“She also likes radishes and broccoli – but she doesn’t like cucumber at all.”
And stealing food isn’t the only mischievous thing Bluebell gets up to – she’s also escaped before.
“When she could see she actually escaped into a nearby farm and I found her lying down in this field surrounded by horses,” Carol said.
“Normally she’s really chilled, though. I let her out into the back garden and she sits under the patio table. She has got these secret spots where she likes to sit.
“Everyone loves her. She’s the best animal I’ve ever had.”
