It was cold and dark and late. I bundled up, put boots on Indy, and took her out to the backyard.
I let her out the door first, and before I know what’s up, she dashes down the stairs and bounds across the yard.
That is when I spot the rabbit leaping frantically away.
The rabbit dashes across the yard and slams head first into the chain link fence and bounces off.
Rabbit turns and runs the other direction, toward the wood fence.
Indy: You want to be my friend?
Rabbit: Holy shit! Fence! Dog!
Rabbit turns and runs the other way.
Indy: Whoa. Where’d you… Oh, okay! Tag! Fun!
Rabbit: OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!!
Rabbit slams head first into the chain link fence and bounces off. Rabbit is dazed.
Indy: BUNNY! LEMME SMELL YOUR BUTT!
Rabbit shakes it off, turns again and runs straight toward me. Old lady dog clumsily changes course and tries to keep up, but is slowing down.
Rabbit: OW MY HEAD! AAAAAAAAH! DOG PLUS HUMAN!
I quietly try to get Indy’s attention, before the rabbit has a heart attack. The rabbit finds a pile of wood to hide under. Indy goes to sniff everyplace the rabbit was.
I don’t think we woke any neighbors up.
