Indy the Bunny Hunter

Yes, it's a new show coming to Animal Planet this fall: Indy the Bunny Hunter...much like Dog the Bounty Hunter...only this is a real dog "hunting" harmless balls of fluff.

But I do give the bunnies at our house some credit...they are no dummies; they apparently learned early on that Indy's reach is only so far.

About 20 feet to be exact.

And this is with the new chain...the old one (which was a mere 15 feet) rusted and he snapped it clean off one day while he was outside.  "Fortunately" for us, he ran just a few doors down to a neighbor's house...because he smelled the food on their grill.

That right there is the tell-tale sign that he belongs at our house: he's motivated by his stomach.

But I digress...

Since it was apparent to us from the beginning that Indy is a "runner," we choose to not let him outside unless on a leash or chain.

Some of us (OK, mostly Mr. Always Random, but sometimes "others" as well) would like to rethink that rule and just let him "run free." But I couldn't possibly handle the weeping and gnashing of teeth from the PBA should Indy never come back.

And since we're into telling the truth, I would probably also be a touch on the sad side if he never came back.

But please don't tell him that. I think he's already starting to suspect that I like him.

Even though he's not the brightest bulb in the box...

The bunnies when Indy is outside...just hanging out and eating the clover...making a mockery of his hunting and guard-dog prowess

Bunnies when ANYONE else comes outside...look at that cute little cottontale!

Our vicious guard dog, protecting us from the crafty bunnies skulking about in the yard...not bothered in the slightest by the hordes of birds, raccoons, squirrels, chipmunks, coyotes...just.the.bunnies.
