I was just told that Bob Whitman has lost his brave battle with cancer. It hasn't been more than a couple months that the rabbit fancy found out Bob was suffering from a very agressive cancer. I can't believe he's gone. He was probably the smartest rabbit person alive, and probably in history. His efforts to bring so many rare, endangered, and practically extinct rabbit breeds to the US to help support numbers is history. Without Bob, we probably wouldn't have Lionheads here today either.
I can't believe it. We have lost two of the great rabbit people alive within a couple days of each other. This will probably go down in history as the most depressing week in the rabbit show world, ever.
Thoughts and prayers to Bob's family and friends. We will never forget you.
