Check Out My Backyard


Why, you ask, is a lone adirondack chair sitting in the middle of the lawn? It is covering this:


The other day after work, I hear my mother scream. Which is not unusual. But this was something slightly more panicked than normal and I thought it might have involved the dog's name so I dragged myself outside to look.

He had killed a baby bunny. This is a baby-bunny hole. Some mama bunny thought the middle of my damn backyard where Shadow the Dog lives would be a good place to plant the babies.

And P.S. - a cooper's hawk lives in the neighborhood.

So we put the chair over the hole and have been walking Shadow on a leash. How long before baby bunnies leave the nest?

This made me laugh.
