Uh-Oh

A selection of facts:

1. Our neighbours are away.

2. Himself is looking after their six rabbits.

3. He took Brodie with him when he went to feed them yesterday.

4. He didn't put a muzzle on Brodie.

5. Brodie is a Greyhound.

6. Brodie is very quick at snatching things.

Can you see where this is going yet? Yes, I thought you might.

I suppose I should be thankful he only got one of them. Himself was mortified and as the children apparently want a guinea pig, he has offered to buy one for them. But that's not the point really is it?

  1. OMG. Once, when I was recovering from surgery, and Bob was gone, Lizzie (Killer), our smallest Cairn Terrier, deposited a freshly gutted full sized rabbit on the throw rug beside our bed. A gift, I think. She let me take it, and dispose of it. Yuck.

    I guess, if they're hunters, they're hunters.

  3. I gather Himself isn't a rocket scientist?

  4. Besides, guinea pigs shouldn't be kept with rabbits (rabbits often accidentally kill them), so he'd need to get at least 2 guinea pigs to live togeter.

  5. Well, that will be the neighbours problem Jan. He'll buy one and they can take it from there. But I will tell them that as I didn't know.

    And no, he's not a rocket scientist but he is incredibly intelligent so how he could have been so bloody stupid is quite beyond me.

  6. Now, you know that intelligence has nothing to do with stupidity. Maybe it was just a brain fart.

    Poor bunny. Lucky, happy Brodie. Poor Himself.

  13. I delete anonymous comments, particularly when the author doesn't have the guts to name themselves when they call me selfish.

  14. I didn't realize you have a Brodie, I have a Brodi. :) My Brodi wants to eat the mice everytime I try to photograph them. Saying a bunny prayer now.

  15. Noooooooo.
    Oh he must have felt so bad. At least it sounds like they're understanding, I mean, stuff happens.

  16. I agree with Jan. It would be very cruel to have one Guinea pig by itself and it's the sex thing with rabbits and Guinea pigs. A rabbit could try to have sex with a Guinea pig and kill it.
