OMD! I am so excited. Last night Mom let us out to go potty about 2am. Then about 5am we heard an owl and something screeching. Dylan and I wanted to run back outside - but Mom said no. We heard it screech again about 6. And again Mom said it was an owl eating something..
Well.. She was wrong. It was not an owl. It was a rabbit that's back legs somehow got twisted in a fence we have on our property. Mom let us out to potty and she went to make coffee. I went frantically running around the yard looking for what that noise I heard could have been.
I found the rabbit. I grabbed it and tried to help pull him out from being stuck in the fence. He screamed that same screech sound. RUH ROE - MOM hears me now.
So Mom comes marching down there (Dylan had stayed up by Mom) - and she see's what's going on - then she takes me by the collar and is walking me back up to the house - so Dylan runs down there to check it out.
So Mom lets me go and she got something to take the rabbit out of his misery. I had ripped some of the fur off his belly looking for his squeaker. Mom got the rabbit lose - and he had died. He was really stuck.
Oh - it was so exciting! Mom took the rabbit and put me inside. I don't know what she did with it. I would have liked to have eaten it - but she wouldn't let me. As it is she told me I get no kisses today from my breath.
I used to ignore rabbits in the yard - but now. OH NOW - I cannot wait to see another one. OMD that was so exciting!! I hope the rest of the day can be this exciting!!!!!
Mom never told me I was bad or anything - but I could tell she was not happy. I mean - what the heck was I supposed to do? She tells me my job is to guard the house and to guard the yard. The rabbit was in our yard - making that ungodly noise. I was just trying to help it get unstuck. Even if after I tasted it - it did bring the wolf out in me - I did want to eat it - I admit it, I did. But - I was just doing what I was supposed to do right?
