The Captain finally found that all elusive time to remove the tree ornament from the rabbit house. With help from Boo. Didn’t take too long with the chain saw. I thought it would take longer to get the chain saw running, which is a normal thing around here. Everything was working perfectly when it put away last time. But it started right up. Amazing!
One would think that the noise and the movement of the tree shaking the rabbit house would cause the rabbit to go into hiding. He has a little box inside the rabbit house in which he could hide. Nope! He was right there watching. As if he were supervising. Maybe making sure no mistakes were made causing damage to his house.
You can see the sun reflecting on one of his ears. (center of pic)
By the way, did you know those rabbits have a lifespan of about 5 years? This rabbit, Fumper, he’s called, named by the 3 year old previous owner, is atleast 10 years old. We’ve had him since he was 2. I am curious if someone’s calculations were wrong. Just how long is this rabbit gonna live anyway?
Normally, your child grows up with a dog. But in our case, he’s growing up with a dog, a rabbit and several horses.
Getting back to the tree ornament. After The Captain finished cutting up the tree ornament, Boo, stacked up the firewood, as it’s now called, between 2 trees in front of the rabbit house.
No damage was done to the rabbit house. He seemed contented after all the ornament removal was completed, as he retreated to his little box for a nap.
I’d say that’s a day or so of firewood for the fireplace. And if it’s not used before summer, we’ll take it to the campground with us. Along with marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers.
Mmmm, can’t wait!
