I always put the dogs out in the fenced backyard around 7:30 in the morning when I go over to Mom and Dad's. They will have already been out several times in the morning so I usually don't worry about anything being caught unaware. This morning, however, there was a rabbit in the yard. Sassy chased it into a corner of the fence and knocked it down but it leaped back up and took off for the lower gate and scooted out and across the field and over to Mom and Dad's. It wasn't until I came back from visiting that I saw what the rabbit had been doing. There are three of these starter nests in the yard right where my dogs love to roam. Silly rabbit.
