This little guy is my dog’s friend, you should see them play together… and this rabbit is no pet; he’s entirely wild!
The game is that when the dog needs to go out, he looks for the rabbit… When this particular one is there they race around the yard; the rabbit can’t shake the dog off his tail, but the dog won’t catch him either. When the rabbit slows down, the dog slows down; when the rabbit speeds up so does the dog. When the rabbit gets tired he squeezes through the fence and they take a break, then he squeezes back through the fence and they run some more.
When I took these pictures, I didn’t even know the rabbit was out there until I was almost on top of him; he didn’t seem to care much…
He seemed to be more interested in taking care of hygiene..
The funny thing was that the dog was right next to me the whole time I was shooting pictures; it’s like they have an understanding between them… it’s just a game, nobody gets hurt…
The Bible says that the day will come when the lion will lay down with the lamb. In my yard, the rabbits play with the dog!
Thank you, Lord for all of the simple ways that You bless us!
Now this is a whole new career idea: a blind wildlife photographer!
