Notes & Links from the series:
They talk about Dr. Dana Krempels from H.A.R.E. (HRS Miami Chapter) and her excellent contributions on AllExperts with answering rabbit questions. Unfortunately in early May 2017 (after 19 years) AllExperts closed and all of Dr. Dana Krempels' posts were gone. They now redirect you to Thoughtco... they do not have any of her great information.
The 3 (or 5 4) A's. HRS founder Marinelle Herriman uses the "Triple A's" criteria; Appetite, Affection, and Attitude (from her article Quality of Life). Christie breaks out Activity along with Attention to appearance/grooming. HRS's Dr. Mary E. Cotter has a video on the the 3 A's.
