'The Devil made me do it.'
Or so Bonnie likes to tell me.
She has certainly had a bit of the devil in her lately.
Since catching the bunny, almost 2 weeks ago, she has been taking her new role as Bunny Slayer very seriously.
We had thought Guapa was the fast one.
When they race around the front garden she's always in the lead. If I throw sticks or balls she always gets them first.
Apparently, Bonnie just needs something interesting to chase.
Mon mari took them for a walk the other day (leaving me wrapped up on the floor in computer cables).
No offence to mon mari…..
But I do have a difficult time getting him to pay attention to the little things.
Things like: latch the gate, then unhook the puppies from their leads…. NOT the other way around.
What can I say…. Bonnie saw a bunny running across the muddy field; the gate was not secure.
Mon mari learned 2 things for himself (I had told him both things but learning first hand is always best): Bonnie can outrun a fleeing, terrified rabbit and Bonnie totally ignores her humans whilst chasing said rabbit.
Thanks to a convenient bolt-hole, the rabbit escaped unscathed.
As did Bonnie.
She's no fool. She waited until mon mari was ankle-deep in mud, trying to catch her, then she raced around him, into the garden and waited by the door.
As he has been told a gazillion times – you cannot beat chastise a dog for doing exactly what they are supposed to do – in this case, come home and sit by the door.
He was reluctant to give Bonnie her treats that night…..
And I've noticed lately that he refers to them as 'your dogs' rather than 'our dogs'.
