    He looks amazing! I would have guessed that he was a young cat!

    Five days ago, I posted this in the weather thread:
    We kept it dry today! We made a short hike before dinner. We spotted a black domestic bunny, dumped by people. We tried to catch but it was too quick for us. I hope it will adapt - it happens sometimes but rarely. It is a good spot for rabbits (enough food and good ground), but I doubt it will survive. I guess it will become a pray for a bird of pray or a dog.
    Well, yesterday we went to the same place and spotted the same rabbit again. We were just resting and eating apples when it came out of the bushes coming closer to us. I offered it an apple which he immediately started to gnaw on. After petting it a bit carefully I could grab him. Poor thing, skinny and dehydrated with ticks and fleas. I took it with us at home, and after some calling around I found a rabbit shelter nearby I could bring it to. The woman who run the shelter is a professional and really has a great heart and love for these animals. If all goes well he will get a good home in not a too long time (along with a female). She would keep me up to date about the rabbit.

    Yes, me too. It bothered me I didn't succeed to catch it the first time.

    If there's one thing I hate,it's people that abuse or dump their animals (& I hunt!).About 20 miles from here there's an area that people use to dump their unwanted puppies & kittens.If they're not eaten by hawks,owls or coyotes they can grow up to be feral.Feral cats can do emormous damage to local small mammal,bird & reptile populations,feral dogs are dangerous since they have no fear of humans & run in packs.Hunger & no fear is a bad combination.They can also carry rabies & bubonic plague (yes,the Black Death,it does still occur in parts of the world such as in the American Southwest).

    I've shot several feral dogs & cats in my neighborhood,it's not my favorite thing to do,I'd rather shoot the lowlife mouth-breather that left the poor animal to fend for itself.

    We have a new dog! As we just found out this morning when we took her in the get fixed & shots,she's mostly American Labrador,we didn't even know there were different types,we've had Labs before.American Labs are thinner overall,with a pointier head.Her coat is short (we prefer short-hair dogs out here in the high desert) but very soft. Right now she's 34 lbs (15.5 kg) but they can get up to 120 lbs (54 kg),we hope she don't get quite that big!

    How did we get her? Well,we're now complicit in a crime,dog stealing.But considering that our friends had watched this guy starve,abuse & neglect his dogs,we feel we did the right thing.She showed up at our friend's house Sunday,starved & scared,so they called us & came over with her since the #@&%$ had left her & another dog with no food or water for 3-4 days while he went camping.

    She's still a bit skiitish,but very sweet & seems very intelligent,she's already learned how to use the dog door & after a couple of small accidents (we keep stuff around for that & the carpet's getting old anyways) it looks like she's already learned to do her business outside,we have 2.5 acres so no need to walk her.

    It's nice having a pet again after a year of being critter-less

    My camera just died so pics'll have to wait 'til I get a new one

    And now for something completely different

    2 minutes of hummingbirds at our house.There's black-chinned,rufous,ruby throat & broad tail & we just saw a male & female calliope the other day,they're much rarer on this side of the mountains.

    Hummingbirds only live in the Americas,the early European explorers first thought they were large insects.They're the only birds that can hover (raptors e.g. hawks,eagles,vultures etc don't "hover" they kite which is basically gliding) & fly backwards.They're the most agressive of all birds,they fight constantly.
