This blog post is brought to you from the back deck, where we just got a firsthand look at Rufus in action protecting the garden from the dreaded bunnies. We're sitting here enjoying the evening with the Dragon at his usual perch at the top of the deck stairs. (Didn't think to get a picture before the real action began.) Farmer Ted's eagle eye spotted a trio of rabbits in the neighbor's yard. (Picture not achieved before the rabbits ran under the azaleas).
Ted also spotted the neighbor's cat stalking the rabbits. (No picture of the cat, but it is smallish and black). The Dragon, ever vigilant, was snoring. Expecting a wild kingdom moment, I raced inside for my glasses and the camera. The Dragon roused himself enough to pick up his head, and this is when he spied...the cat. He raced down the steps to the backyard to keep an eye on the situation. At first, he was standing at the ready anticipating a yard breach. Then, the anticipation got to be too much.
He had to take a rest. Finally, after watching the cat scare the rabbits away, he decided crisis averted.
All's well that ends well.
