My labs are SO bad!!
Last night, around midnight, I let the dogs out for their final relief. I asked everyone to sit, stuck my head out the sliding door to make sure there were no skunks, and then released everyone to go outside.
Rogue barked once. I told her to be quiet. she barked once more. I told her that was enough.
And then the screaming started.
It wasn’t the dogs. It wasn’t a person. It was like a high pitched screeching.
I immediately opened the sliding door and said “LEAVE IT!”
Huib ran over to the door and went toward the girls. As he left, he told me Canyon was hiding behind me – he’s too cute!
He said that once he was close, he saw a rabbit quickly hop away.
I guess Rogue had seen the rabbit and ran over. When she barked, she must have scared it so it froze in place. that gave Cessna enough time to join rogue and together they pinned the poor thing, probably scaring it, so it screamed. thankfully the rabbit didn’t injure the labs and they didn’t seem to injure it. when Huib got the girls back inside, he checked them over for injuries and then took a flashlight outside to see if he saw any blood. all he found was some fur, so hopefully the rabbit lived and didn’t end up having a heart attack somewhere.
Rogue is from a hunting line and I’m pretty sure Cessna is as well, so I can’t really blame the girls for their reaction, but I definitely feel bad for the rabbit. If Huib hadn’t run over, I’m not sure it would have survived, and I guess the girls would have had breakfast.
