Oh, and anyhow, nothing adverse ever happened to her, unless that's what caused her liver failure which she developed at around 13 years of age. But she hadn't eaten a rabbit for about 5 or 6 years. I very recently had to put her down at almost 14. (sad)

You know, I hadn't thought about it before, but mine don't seem to hunt the babies - just adult prey. Strange, hmmm?

Really? Wow. Well, there's sure not much meat in a baby. Maybe your dog figured there wasn't so she'd just go for the adults.

Bonnie didn't always kill the babies. Sometimes they'd be unhurt and I'd tell her, "Drop it." And they'd go off. But often they were dead. It was not pleasant for me. It may be natural and all, but I'm a wuss when it comes to animals of any kind. LOL.

I had to get adjusted to the idea that dogs really are predators. It's kind of a rude shock the first time your darling, sweet, angelic pup comes in with something dead hanging from his or her jaws surpassingly pleased with him or herself! My first GSD, Purdue, only killed rats and snakes. Mickey, our Terrier taught him to do that, otherwise he'd probably have treated them the same way he did anything else that moved - as something to be herded and brought home, lol! He brought home all sorts of things over the years; everything from terrapins to oppossums and baby rabbits. When we had a pair of Bantams he even herded those. The first time they got out of their fence and into the back yard we heard him making funny noises and found him crouching with the hen cornered and his mouth very gently holding the little rooster down. We decided then that the chickens were safe enough out in the yard with the dogs, lol! He was a true herding German Shepherd - the kind you only found bred by old farmers who knew their dogs. He lived to be almost sixteen years old.

Bear was the first who really introduced me to the reality that there's no discernable DNA difference between a dog and a wolf. I saw that dog stalk and kill groundhogs that were sitting right next to their burrows! He was a GSD/Akita mix - and a deadly hunter.

Bimmer is just plain efficient . . . One of our friends, Gary, admires him so much. He's always telling people that Bimmer doesn't need humans to survive; that he's capable of fending entirely for himself.

Rabbits live under our shed. At times we bring them out food. Once, a few years ago, Colby caught one....she's always been a good hunter. I don't remember how many mice she's caught. One time the girls found some baby mice in the house. Didn't do anything to them, just let us know "hey, there are mice over there".
