London Pet Show 2012

Show-jumping bunnies steal the show

Photos from the London Pet Show 2012

Competition is heating up ahead of the London Olympics and not only among us humans. This weekend saw a series of rabbits compete in a nail-biting show jump contest at the London Pet Show 2012. The unlikely event saw bunnies of all shapes and sizes congregate to strut their stuff in the leaping stakes - some rather more convincingly than others. As well as the rabbit jump-off, the show also featured sleeping baby hedgehogs, Union Jack-clad dogs and a host of other cute-looking animals who gathered to hang out and generally look adorable. Enjoy all the highlights below (warning: may induce random 'aahing')...
