First, just a note about yesterday's post. Maggie and I went out for a short morning walk. Turned out it was still raining harder than I thought, and I had run out without a jacket, so I cut across the field to make it a short walk, and there was that silly ball. It's so odd how little things like that can just blindside a person. Not to mention how it had been there for so long without me ever coming across it before.
How about a more cheerful post for today?
This is Earth Day, and this was the most special Earth Day present I ever had! The year was 1991, and our big, dumb, white dog, Hezekiah, was still alive. He was one of the special ones too, in his own way. He made us laugh so often! That afternoon I saw Heze nosing around in the field like he was playing with something, so I went to check it out.
There was Heze trying to get three baby bunnies to play with him. He was such a gentle dog! He hadn't harmed them, but they were soaking wet because he had licked them so much. I wasn't quite sure what to do, but I brought them to the house and dried them off before taking them back to the nest.
The word "adorable" is hard to avoid. It was so cool to hold those little rabbits. I did return them to their grassy nest, and much to my surprise the mother rabbit apparently didn't have any problem with the scents they must have returned with. (As if we need more rabbits here to chew up the shrubbery, right? But I got attached to those ones!)

It finally stopped raining! Walked 1.5 miles with a 40 pound pack.
