Pac! Beagle is going apesnot tracking her bunnies. She's been standing on my head, rushing to the front, back, and side of the house, and repeating, all inside the house. She's shivering just watching all the baby bunnies. Squirrels, groundsquirrels, and birds, meh. No interest.

I have a pic of some baby bunnies from a few years back, will try to find it.

You are a Beagle mind-reader, PF!

She wants to call them Sheila.

That's because I know what Beagle is thinking as she hops around the house watching her bunnies...

My female golden retriever, Maddy likes to watch "the outdoor channel" out the back door. She watches bunnies all of the time. I know what you mean about the dog shaking while watching. We say that she is vibrating, because that is the only way to describe it. When we see the baby bunnies out we try to keep her inside, but sometimes she will seek them out and find them. It's kinda sad, but she is, after all, a dog.

A few years ago my neighbour hung a bird feeder where my cats (when I still had two) could see it from the patio door. She called it "Nature TV".

Now that I'm looking at this on my PC instead of my phone, that snake looks like a garter snake. They don't get much bigger than that and they eat rodents (and frogs).

I saw a really big rattle snake by the road yesterday. I thought at first that it was a bull snake, but then saw the rattles! I didn't get close enough to stop and take a picture!

When I lived in Texas, the city I lived in had an ordinance that you HAD to keep your grass cut short. If not, the city would come in and cut it for you and then add the cost on to your water bill.

I used to have to walk down the long driveway to get our mail. One night I was walking down the middle of it and I heard that rattle. I turned real quick and decided he could have my mail. It was probably a bill anyway.

When I would mow the grass, every so often I would hear, chunk, clunk, bang. Pieces of rattlers would come flying out. I had run over a nest. Then one day I heard gun shots out back. The trash men were shooting a bunch of rattlers in my trash can. And The Pirate was about ten y.o. at that time. He and his friends would go rattle hunting and turn them in for the $5 bounty. Money for the movies. Such a joyous place to live.
