A few days ago, I let Duke out to fetch the paper like we do every morning. Except this time, a very fluffy rabbit was sitting across the road on the sidewalk. Said rabbit was frozen in place hoping to avoid being seen. Duke sensed the rabbit, but couldn't quite see him in the shadows. It is still a bit dark at 5:00 a.m. Today the cheeky rabbit was in our drive way as I opened the door. It darted across the road as we left the house. Thank goodness Duke was more intent on watering the bushes and didn't see him/her. So, no chasing after the dog chasing after the rabbit.
Odds are the rabbit would make a fine escape as a young bunny is much quicker than an 11 year old hound.
I know they are both quicker than a 50 year old. LOL
