Tagliatelle with Shrimp, Avocado and Pesto; all hail the new Bunny Slayer — 4 Comments

  1. I know, I know, but it still makes me really sad. Poor buns…

    Yesterday, my old, deaf, couldn’t get her arse out of the way to save her life, Red Dobe decided to chase the deer that was standing about 40 feet from me while I was sitting on the back deck. I was able to grab the Blue Dobe’s leash, but we don’t put the Red one on one because she doesn’t leave the yard. So the Blue though about barking but almost nothing came out so he just stood there and vibrated. The Red however, managed to fall down all four of the steps to the grass, picked herself up, charged the deer in her own, inept way and the deer just stood there looking at her like, Really? You really want to go there? Aaaand, sauntered off while Red was trying to get enough traction to chase it. Wish I’d had the presence of mind to hit the record button on my phone.

    As to our bunnypocalypse, neither dog chases them because we’ve had buns as pets so their prey drive is non-existent with them. Which is a good thing. I couldn’t stand that. But that’s me.

    • I’m laughing…. I can just picture it. I was walking Sedi, the shepherd in the first photo one day and she stopped to, er, take care of business. Just as she started a bunny ran right in front of her. She couldn’t stop and couldn’t chase. I had to sit in the field I was laughing so hard. Good that we have dogs to entertain us.

    • It’s the ‘cornering’ that usually lets them escape. The bunnies can turn on a pin…. the dogs take longer. But, when the bunnies are inside the fence with the dogs,,,,,
