I'll get to the bunnies in a minute. First I have to share with you how absolutely hysterical Theo is being right now. I threw my back out on Tuesday (yes, I'm having just the best week ever), and laying on my stomach is really the only comfortable position for me to be in for extended periods of time. So right now I'm laying on the floor on my stomach, typing away on my laptop. Theo, fresh off his after breakfast nap, just came up to me, pulled off my socks, nibbled my feet, jumped on my head a few times, then laid down in a similar position to me, play growling while I gave him my hands to chew on for awhile. When I went back to the laptop (to blog this here post!), he laid his head down on my legs and now he's taking a nap.
This is owning a Corgi. When I say Corgis are goofballs, this is what I'm talking about.
A commenter on my last post brought up an excellent point I didn't mention. Not only does Theo miss the dogs at doggy daycare. He also misses the humans working there! He absolutely loves the woman who runs the place, and I miss our conversations when I would come in to pick him up. I'm sure they miss him as well. I can't wait to take him back.
Ok, back to your not so regularly scheduled post:
Bunnies. I know why a bunny is the figurehead for the commercialized Easter. They are everywhere! Little jackrabbits with white cottontails. And Theo has become my little bunny hunter. I always know when one is close by when I see his ears fly up. And here's the thing. They are brave! They don't fly off at the first jingle of Theo's collar. They hold still, they wait, and when we're almost upon them, that's when they bolt. This, of course, drives Theo crazy! If he sees a bunny run somewhere far ahead of him, he watches with interest, but nothing more. If a bunny bolts right in front of his face, his reaction is to bolt right after it. It's like he can't help himself. So it's like these little buggers are baiting him! I can see it in their bunny eyes! "A dog is coming! Wait for it....wait for it....wait for it... RUN! You're never gonna caaaaaaatch me!"
And did I mention they're everywhere? My little bunny hunter has been on the prowl all through our walks the last few weeks. Nevermind an Easter egg hunt, Theo is all about the Easter bunny hunt!
