Penny chased her first rabbit

Walking in a fresh spot today, I was enjoying the newly-mown grass, and Penny was enjoying the longer patches that had been left to grow.


She was munching on some long leaves and smelling the smells, and didn't notice a rabbit sitting right near her, ignoring us. Fortunately, before Penny realised what was going on, the rabbit leaped into the long grass and hid.

 I won't be letting Penny into long grass in couple of weeks, because as soon as the weather warms up, the snakes will be out.

Because I'd already seen the rabbit, I wasn't too surprised when Penny dashed off from me in pursuit of another one - her first rabbit! I'm super pleased to report that when I called a sharp 'come!', she left the rabbit and headed back to me for her well-deserved reward.

Spring seems to have arrived! It was quite warm today but I hear that it will be cool again in the next day or so. But I fear that the snakes will be stirring. Not my favourite time of year - nor is summer, because of the snake danger.

Lassie and Benji, I think she might have thought the rabbit was a nice new stuffed toy for her to play with.

Mitch and Molly, I'm sure you're two wonderfully obedient dogs and would have come back right away - if you felt like it.

Mary, let's live in the moment, haha, and just enjoy the warm but not cancer-causing sunshine...
