I just felt sick when I saw it's lifeless little body. But then I'm one of those people who don't like to step on bugs or swat flies etc.
Herbie likes to chase...Just not sure what to do if he catches! But he is absolutely in love with our neighbor Susan's horse "Kitten" and her goats and sheep. They all come over to the fence so Herbie can touch their noses with his. It really is cute - he is the best dog in the world for me. Compassionate, kind & loving but still likes to have fun chasing 'wabbits'!
I understand that the breed they are raising is a New Zealand Flemish Giant and at maturity they weigh between 15-16 lbs and are about 22' long. 'Ninja' was one of the Black ones and about that size. They have all different colors running "free".

The scuttle-butt of the neighborhood is that the 'rabbit farmers' have over 100 rabbits running Free Range . . . grrrr - so my guess is that it won't be long before another one finds it's way to our yard. Heavy Sigh . . .
I now have about a half a dozen perennials or so to replace - if we don't get them grown by the next invasion, I think that will be my last attempt at gardening this year I can't afford to replace plants all the time.
I noticed a couple of Turkey Buzzards floating around the other day above their fields, and also saw a couple of hawks on the hunt in our area too.
Well gotta go get something done today!!
