For the last year Skip and Pip have lived on my website. But as their universe began to grow it became clear they needed a home of their own.
Welcome to Skip and Pip's new hangout!
I dithered about whether their home should be skipandpip.com or pridebunnies.com. There were great reasons to choose either, as followers on my Facebook pointed out when I pondered the question. The pride bunny URL will point to this one as people will discover.
But why did I ultimately choose the one I did?
I am proud of my two little boy bunnies in love. (No pun intended!) It is an important aspect of who they are. It is my hope that Skip and Pip show the world that "love is love" and it doesn't matter who you love as long as you do it with all your heart.
But it is just one aspect of their personalities. The ever pragmatic Skip and the ditzy fun loving Pip have the same relationship hurdles, silliness and sometimes those sad moments that all couples have - it just happens to be they are a same sex couple. It was my decision to go the route that celebrates them as two individuals with all their various personality traits.
And maybe...just maybe...change some minds that might be closed along the way.
I think that even with this address, it can encompass their whole new expanding universe. "Calvin and Hobbes" had many characters as you well know.
Welcome to Skip and Pip's new home. I hope you visit often.
To their fans, my appreciation for you is immeasurable.
