This was so cute, I just had to share. Last weekend, my husband was digging my Spring garden (we relocated a tree to where my old one was). I notice my terrier has her nose buried in the grass, which is not unusual, but when she looks up, bits of gray fur are stuck all around her snout. I start to freak out thinking she injured an animal, but I soon realize what she was so interested in - baby bunnies! Thankfully, they weren't harmed. This was what they looked like last week, all huddled in a hole under mama's fur:
I was kind of worried, so I checked on them yesterday afternoon and one popped it's head out!
I've been careful not to disturb the nest too much because I'm afraid Mama rabbit won't come back, but so far they seem healthy and energetic! I'm not sure what to do because I still want a garden, but I refuse to get rid of the bunnies. Any ideas on how to make that work?
Oh, and the funny thing is we found those baby bunnies on Easter! Of all days!
