On Tuesday, we had company. Said company arrived via the dog, in the first class section right up in front (i.e., her mouth) The bunny was fine, but I really hate it when a baby bunny is discovered. When I and the the brothers and sisters I grew up with were litte we found a huge nest of bunnies our dog had dug up. We thought we were saving them when we took them home, but over the course of the day, they each died, one by one. We were devastated, and I can’t look at a wild bunny without thinking about it. I have since learned that if you find a nest of bunnies that you think has been abandoned, leave it alone. The mother bunny only enters the nest two or three thimes a day to nurse them, leaving them alone in order not to draw predators to the nest. Couldn’t put this bunny back though, because I didn’t know where the dog got it. The bunny was in very good shape, so I put him in a box, made him a little nest to borrow into, and he did well through the night. Sean took him to the Wildlife Center at Greenleaf State Park Wednsday morning, and I am sure he will do better with them than with me, they foster several wild animals every year.

Well, I am having a lot of trouble with blogger. I had a big post about fibery things I am working on, but it won’t post. I will have to try again later.
