Rabbits always tend to make homes around my dads fence too. We have the 3 little dogs (JRT mix, Dachshund mix, and terrier Jackson) and they all obsess over the bunny.

I swear, yesterday, the bunny was purposely taunting them. It was sitting RIGHT outside the fence just *sitting* there. Even when I made noises for it to go away. All three dogs were going nuts and Buddy and Jackson began sticking their heads under the fence. I have no doubt they could have dug their way under had they really wanted to or if I had not been right there to stop them.

At least your dogs chase the bunny. Mine seem to have an agreement with the one that likes to chow down in our garden. The dogs, who have no problem taking on raccoons, possums, squirrels, deer, skunks (sigh), moles and snakes, lay on the porch and watch the bunny hop around the yard.

What gets me is that they'll chase bunnies on my neighbor's property when we walk over there. I don't know what our rabbit paid them but it must have been a pretty hefty sum...
maybe they just don't want to eat where they crap

Rabbits were extinct in my yard for a few years, I have seen a few this year since we have fenced the front and back into two seperate areas.

Keith rescued a rabbit from the pool yesterday. He was a smart bunny. He was sitting in the skimmer so he didn't drown. I hate it when they get in the pool.

Brutus wiped out a nest of bunnies when he was a pup. I managed to save one and take it to wildlife rehab.
