The boys had swim lessons out on post this morning plus we had errands to run and I had a checkup at the eye doctor this afternoon. It made for a long day. We drove home in the blowing snow of the afternoon. Not too bad, it was just wet and slushy. As I stepped out of the truck at home, I glanced at the trash can for some reason and saw a little furry ball sitting beside it. I called for the boys to come look at the bunny I'd found. They made it their quest to catch him and rescue him from the snow. He escaped and ran under the fence not knowing how persistent those boys are! lol D found him under a pile of leaves. He is now in a Rubbermaid tub (the tub I'd emptied only an hour or so before at Goodwill) and is residing indoors where it's warm for the night.
The boys have wanted a rabbit for a long time and are so thrilled now that they "have" one. I'm not sure we'll keep him. I don't even know if it is "safe" but for tonight, he's their new pet.
We have named him (or her?) Snowflake because it seemed appropriate.
