I took the dogs for their walk today and it turned out that it was good for me to do that.

The dogs usually are running out in front of me and it's hard to see what they are really doing. But, today I saw Lucy in a hard run after a jack rabbit. Usually it's the boys that get after the jack rabbits first, but today it was Lucy. I yelled her on and the boys got into the chase. They didnt catch the rabbit and worked their way back to me. Then, Larry went by a bush and a cotton tail ran out from one bush to the other. Big mistake! All three dogs then started digging for the cotton tail. I got tired of that and started trying to call them off. Lucy was the only one that would mind me, so we went on our way and left the 2 boys with their heads in the dirt! It was nice to be able to watch Lucy out working, doing some tracking here and there and looking for critters hidden in the bushes. We went back towards the house and hooked up with Larry again. One of them had gotten the cotton tail, which I really dont like, (jack rabbits are ok, but cotton tails are too cute) but Larry had it. He wouldnt leave it and Abe was gone, so Lucy and I headed on to the house. Abe was back home and Larry came shortly after. With me able to watch just one dog while Lucy and I were together, it was nice to see that she still hunts and still loves to be out looking for varmints!

I don't know what the rabbits did to your dogs, but they sure seem mad at the little hoppers..... :D
