Dangerous Critters!

Allow me to introduce my two dogs.  First is Zeus, a yellow lab/English mastiff mix, who is 16 months old and who has been part of our family since he was 11 weeks old.  He's a very sweet boy, very laid back, and hates to look at the camera when I try to take his picture.

Next is Luna, a black lab/? mix.  I, personally, think she's a cross between a lab, a kangaroo, and a Mexican jumping bean!  The girl cannot sit still!!  Oh, and she thinks she's a cat.  She is 15 months old and has been with us since she was 12 weeks old.  Very sweet and very energetic, but, in all honesty, not the sharpest tool in the shed.  No, that's not entirely true or fair.  She's quite smart, she house broke quickly and has learned a few commands pretty easily, too, but she's...impulsive.  She has NO impulse control and it makes her do dumb things. 
See?  Thinks she's a cat!

Last night these two decided that the rabbit that was hopping around the yard at 12 AM, was a threat to the household and MUST be chased off at all costs!  For an hour they ran from one end of the house to the other, stopping at every window along the way to either woof of outright bark at the poor little thing. 

At first we didn't know what was going on.  No one comes near our house without getting barked at.  And by near, I mean a block away going the other direction, parking on our street within eyesight, or coming out of any of the neighbors' houses.  Luna barks at nothing.  When she lets off a volley, I ask, in all seriousness, if a bird farted.  Zeus on the other hand, only barks when he actually sees someone in the general vicinity.  So when he barks, we do tend to pay a little more attention and, as it was late, we finally went out onto the enclosed porch and spotted the villain.  A little brown bunny!  Scary.

Just a little glimpse into my life.  Exciting, huh?
