You guys know how to make a girl feel all warm and fuzzy! Thank you all for the warm welcome back!
Last night, just before dark, the pups and I went into the backyard for a last run. I was standing there, Happy and Maggie beside me, when Denny started yapping, and I saw him chasing a bunny from one end of the backyard to the other. He was at least 2 meters behind the bunny at all times, no chance of getting close enough, and he knew it. He whined in frustration while running. Happy, Maggie and I were watching this with open mouths, it was funny.
But really, I'm pissed because of this suicidal bunny. Why, oh why does she have to have her babies in our backyard where there's always the possibility of three!!! dogs chasing her, and her offsprings? Early this summer, Denny found a nest, a badly made nest with two baby bunnies in them. For the next four days I tried to give the dogs space to run, but not go near that nest. The baby bunnies died anyway, with no fault of the dogs I might add. It made me sad.
Yesterday, Denny found another nest, totally inappropriate located out in the open, but at least with some bedding for the babies (no one home yet). Now I have to see that he doesn't dig it out every time we go outside, which is annoying. I don't want anyone getting hurt. Dumb Bunny mom. There's so many places outside our yard for nesting, but no, she needs to have some action in her life. Sigh. ~
O.K. back to knitting. I've finished this shawl back in April! Those of you on Ravelry might have seen it there already. I've got the pattern as a gift from the lovely Virginia. Thanks again!
