I was working outside near the house the other day, and saw Rena going across the ranch yard with a piece of pipe. What the heck? Noting her enthusiasm, which later became obsession, I knew something must be in the pipe.
I finally looked in the pipe and saw a cottontail rabbit firmly wedged in the middle, refusing to be dumped out either end. Rena gave up on getting her bunny to exit, but laid down to “guard” her pipe. After a few hours, husband Jim removed the dog, and placed one end of the pipe under a ranch drag, so the victim could escape without attracting notice. I was relieved to check the pipe and find it empty yesterday morning.
