A Tale of Two Bunnies

Or maybe three, depending on how you look at it?

So, the other day, we were hanging out at a house where some of The People's friends live. It was nice. They were barbecuing. The wife likes us because we are generally quiet and mellow (she is not really a canine person) and all was well with the world. It was a sunny day. There were hot dogs to be eaten.

And there was a bunny in the open area back yard.

So The Woman thinks, ah, this will be fun and unhooks Belle from chain and slowly she leads her over to where the Bunny is. Belle sees nothing for a bit, and then all of the sudden, she stops, and you can tell, she has caught the scent of the unmoving large eared rodent hiding in the spruce trees. The Woman releases and says, get it, and Belle is off like a shot - with bunny running up ahead.

Now, this plan was not entirely thought through on one major issue. In this well constructed, all houses are identical unfenced neighborhood, there are a lot of really nicely well planted flower gardens that I am sure are annuals and not perineals so they probably cost some money and plenty of time to plant.

Belle and Bunny plowed through at least three of these very exotic, well maintained flowery abysses, before heading back into the fields behind the house. Bunny dives into hole, Belle stands there asking where her Bunny went, and The Woman returns Belle back to the chain.

Fast Forward 2 hours.

Now there are two bunnies hiding in the spruce trees so The Woman thinks, aha, one for each Shiba! So she lets us loose into the field, and we catch their scent and the chase is on!

All of the sudden, I veer off to the left and run behind a house. Belle stops cold, and turns and looks at me. She barks and stamps her little feet but I have found something cooler than bunnies.

I found a soccer ball!

I Am Shiba. Priorities Are A Must.

I have to agree with you, balls are so much more fun to chase compared to bunnies. I personally love those tennis balls.
