AS a magician I have been the proud owner of a lovely little bunny named Archie.

Sadly Archie has had to be put to sleep as he had developed a tumour. But he was 11 years old. I wonder if this is some sort of record for a Netherland’s dwarf breed of rabbit as according to all the experts, the average life of such a rabbit is six to eight years, usually less.

So my beloved Archie has performed his last trick and I feel he could never be replaced and so for the future, I shall be a rabbit-less magician!
