Despite Puppy Cody’s insistence on acting like the dog that she is …
And despite the fact that the bunny nest was disturbed …
The baby bunnies have survived!
I’ve been checking the nest daily, using a twig to move the grassy covering, and being very careful not to touch any of the babies. After re-covering the nest, I throw the twig into another area of the yard so that my scent isn’t obvious. Sure, the bunnies know there are humans about and probably can tell we’ve been close to the nest, but Mama Bunny seems to be ok with that so long as the babies aren’t handled.
They’re getting big. It’s only a matter of time before they’re off and running.
And then Puppy Cody will be in her glory. She can chase them, but baby bunnies are faster than she is and are able to squeeze under the fence to get away.
BTW, look carefully – these are two different photos. The one at the top of the post was taken just a wee bit closer than this one:
TGIF. Enjoy your weekend!
