You won't believe.......

What happened today.........

Mum took me for a walk at Jericho beach. I went for a swim and then we went to walk in the bunny infested trails. 


 I see so many bunnies (plus I have a giant killer bunny at home) that I don't really bother with them anymore. BUT... not every doggie is like me. We saw a big 80+ pound, non-terrier dog running in and out of the bushes like crazy, owner was no where to be seen. He then stopped, pounced inside a bush. We heard a scream and the next thing we knew, he had killed a bunny and was plucking it, probably to eat. So mum rushed over and told him a louuuuuuud NO. She grabbed his collar to pull him away (thank goodness he wasn't food possessive!). I slowly got to the lifeless bun bun, stretched my neck out to sniff her without getting too close... I always know when an animal is dead... I don't like it...

Anyway, while mum and I were checking out the (dead) bunny and trying to figure out where to put it (so it wouldn't have to be in the open), mum noticed this dog had his head inside the bush again. He looked like he was pulling or chomping on something. Right away, mum thought something was SuperWRONG there, so she went over, pulled him out, and you know what....

THERE WAS HALF A BABY BUNNY HANGING OUT OF HIS MOUTH!!!

Mum screamed and told him DROP. He gulped the poor bunny down. She again yelled NOOOOO to him, and told him to GOO. So he did, but he went back to the dead mama bun bun to try to eat it  again
(I think). I was there though... and I showed him my pearly white if you know what I mean. Good thing he decided to run away to find his irresponsible owner when he realized neither mum nor I was going to let him have anymore bun bun meat.

We checked inside the bush, and there were still two live babies.... mum didn't know what to do since the bunny mom was killed. So we brought them home. A small grey baby and a big brown baby.


We have contacted a bunny rescue and a small animal rescue to see if anything could be done for these babies. They look to be quite young?? 


Mum wouldn't even let me touch them even though I wouldn't hurt them..... I protected their dead mama from being plucked and eaten!


Anyway, I listened to mum and just laid beside the new babies,


I went out to the yard, was hoping to go under my SuperFORT for a dig and rest....... But guess who was under it!!!!!


I told STINKY to go kick him out, STINKY considered, but he said he was scared of Mean Juice. I don't blame him though, he did lose to Juice when he battled him before.....


Fine, being the fearless SuperDALE that I am, I risked my life and went under. He recognized the SueprDALE and hopped away, 


Well, away enough..... you can see he was still under the ramp and stalking me!



Later on, I saw STINKY lost another battle. See, Mean Juice on the left beside the white pen, and STINKY, dead in the yard. 


The bunny rescue didn't get back to us, so we sent up a comfy bed for the babies. They burrow to sleep like this,


Will keep you updated on the baby bun buns!

Hi E: Okay, you just have to win the Lotto. Because I know that you'll have an animal sanctuary going there soon. Thank goodness for those surviving bunnies that you and Sunshade were there to rescue them and to pull off the attacking dog. Thank you for taking care of the killed rabbits too. That's a tough thing to do but it's the decent thing to do. You're a "good egg" E.
