Tiny Rabbit and His 16 Pound Bunny Girlfriend Go Viral

March 18th, 2019

Love comes in all shapes and sizes. It’s a – usually metaphorical – fact of life.

However, we recently stumbled upon a story that gives that old saying a more literal meaning.

The Covelli family, who reside in Guam, are big fans of rabbits. They can’t get enough of ’em!

They especially have a lot of rabbit to go around with their pet Lilly Sunshine who is, well, pretty big!

Weighing in at 16 pounds, Lilly is the family’s three-year-old Flemish giant bunny. And guess what? She has a boyfriend.

That’s right. His name is Romeo and when Lilly isn’t eating, sleeping, or playing, you can most definitely find her cozying up to her partner-in-crime.

Here comes the funny part though: Romeo is a tiny dwarf bunny who is about one third the size of Lilly.

He is only 4 pounds, but that has not gotten in the way of this true bunny love.

“Everyone is usually taken aback by Lilly’s size, and then when they see her with Romeo, they are even more surprised,” Sarah Covelli, the rabbits’ mom, first told The Dodo. “Romeo has the nickname ‘tiny husbun.’”

But it is amazing how their size difference truly does not interfere with their adorable love. They don’t even seem to realize it at all!

“Romeo is a sweet, curious little guy… He’ll jump on the couch and climb over us. He is also Lilly’s shadow — he follows her everywhere! I think he knows she’ll protect him.”

The two actually gained a pretty heavy following on social media ever since their romance began. Lilly’s Instagram has almost 11,000 followers who all love being updated on the couple’s sweet romance (posted by their mom, of course).

Here’s the couple using the toilet together:

And of course, just lots and lots of cuddles:

“They sure are a special couple,” their mom added.

The love between the two seems pretty undeniable just from photos — it’s no wonder they are inseparable! I mean love is the only reason you’d want to be squeezed into a corner with someone.

Now we are just hoping that they can lead by example and remind us humans that love truly comes in all shapes and sizes!

Please SHARE this with your friends and family.
