Herd Dog – Thankful Thursday

So, went to let my dog out this morning and discovered that five of our ten doe rabbits had escaped from their large kennel. The door hadn’t been shut al the way and they had wedged themselves out. Vincent had chased two of them back into the garage that the rabbits live in (it doesn’t hold any cars or car stuff, it just holds rabbits, hay and other animal feed, don’t worry). One of them kept running in and out of the garage and he’d chase her back in whenever she’d run out.

He doesn’t bite them or anything, just herds them back towards the garage and then to one of the corners in the garage so I can pick them up by their scruff and cuddle them before putting them back in their kennel.

Only found four of them, but that’s more than I had hoped for when I realized how many were missing and the fact that they’ve had over four hours of being out of their kennel alone outside.

So today, I’m grateful that the rabbits stayed close enough by that Vincent was able to herd them back to the garage and I’m grateful that Vincent has learned to herd rabbits. (Because he has, be can herd rabbits, but not goats, for some reason…)

Check out the orignal Thankful Thursday.
