She Finally Caught One


April 24, 2008 by Marj Hatzell


We found a handful of rabbit fur in the backyard this morning.  Or should I say, a mouth full?  Either way, it had blood on it. And it was in Shadow’s mouth.  Ew.

I don’t want to think about it.  I am proud of her, however.  This dog, in all of her nine years, has never come close to catching a rodent in her backyard.   Believe me, it isn’t for lack of trying.  She tries. She chases, runs, gallops and prances. They outrun her.

I’m wondering if since she’s recently lost the weight that has been bogging her down and she has this new-found energy, if she is finally coming into her own!  GO SHADOW.

Poor rabbit.

  1. We’ve got a terrible hunter in our herd of hillbilly dogs. And she’s about 9 lbs. She almost got a rabbit in front of the kids two weeks ago. That would have been a fun time.

    Josie got a rabbit before and lovingly brought it inside to me (YUCK). A few weeks later we heard this squeaky dog toy noise coming from Josie and realized she was holding a BUNNY in her mouth! We got her to spit the baby out and it was unharmed, but now I know where the dog toy noises originated.

    Ewww….gross. Not as gross as to the carnage we found in our yard one day. A momma rabbit had just given birth to babies in our garden and a fox found them.

    Why does that make me think there may be a little jacket with brass buttons and two little shoes somewhere in your back yard?
