The Tale of Tony and The Rabbit

I always knew that Tony was a hunter but he showed his true colors the other week.

It was a peaceful Saturday and I looked out and saw a bunny hopping in the backyard. I called Marty to come witness the perfectly If That Ain't Country scene - happening right there in our own back yard.

"Uh-oh," he said.

"What?" I replied. The whole thing was so picturesque. What "Uh-oh?"

'You know - Tony's going to go after that rabbit."

"No he's not. It's too big for him."

"No it's not."

"Yes it is."

"No it's not."

Well...turns out, Marty was right. The bunny disappeared into the pasture but a few minutes later, he came tear-assing out of there with Tony running full speed behind.

It's a good thing we were watching because Bugs headed straight from the pasture through our yard and right towards the road. Thank goodness Marty was thinking quick on his feet because he jumped outside and cut Tony off at the pass.

So the bunny hung out in the front yard (but did not cross the road), Tony was promptly carried inside (where he hung out at the window and watched the bunny) and we were spared an unfortunate incident of road kill.

And if that ain't country, I'll kiss your...
