A Pet Rabbit Miracle
It Was a Beautiful Rabbit - Until . . . .
This is a humorous but sad story of a pet rabbit which belonged to a friends neighbor. It is a look into human behavior if nothing else.
Most of us keep pets of some description and why people keep rabbits is a long story but many are so attached to them that they virtually have the run of the house. Lets just say they are as much loved as any animal and highly respected by those who keep them.
Mary, my dear friend, had 2 pet rabbits to which her family were deeply devoted. They loved these cute cuddly animals and their garden was a haven that the rabbits simply thrived in. As a naturalist she grows lots of vegetables and fruits and her mini orchard will put many a professional grower to shame. Her place is a haven for wildlife as well.
Being a very gentle soul who would never hurt anything or anybody by nature makes this story a great one not to follow.
What the Dog Brought Home
A gentle pet turned hunter
Living right next door to Mary was a neighbor who also kept a rabbit and was equally as besotted with it as she was with hers.
One morning as she opened the back door to the garden there standing in all innocence was her dog who was anything but a hunter. She had never known him to bring anything home or even catch a bird in the backyard. But here he was and in his mouth he had a white furry rabbit which he instantly dropped at her feet.
Now dogs have an inherent instinct to bring home food to feed the pack but domestic dogs usually don't act in this manner, mainly because they have lost most of that wild instinct. So what could have possessed her dog to chase after and kill this particular rabbit, now in a shocking state. Quickly checking her own rabbits she realized that this was the one belonging to her neighbor. which was a thousand times worse
A quick peer over the fence and sure enough his hutch was empty. Mary's mind and heart were racing. He had obviously raided the neighbor's yard and caught the rabbit and somehow killed it. Well at least he had brought it to her and not just dumped it on the neighbors doorstep. Her heart sank to the floor. If only he had chosen a bird or one of her rabbits she could have gotten over that but this was an entirely different matter. As it was early, not yet 6 am Mary suddenly had a brilliant idea.
Shaking all over she quickly woke her daughter to give her a hand as she attempted to cover up the crime.

Shiny and New Again
It had everything restored but life
There was nothing to be done about the rabbits demise but Mary convinced her daughter that they should wash it and, believing that the dog had killed it, remove all traces of dirt and restore it to a reasonable condition. It was funny that the animal had no kill marks or blood on it, so it was assumed it had died of fright or something.
Into the hot soapy water they plunged the carcass of the poor beast and scrubbed away. At last the dirt was gone and the white furry coat was clean. It was normally a fluffy white angora whose coat was outstanding. Out with the blow dryer and a hasty brush up left it looking very respectable indeed but still not quite the same. The next trick. however, was to get back to its hutch without disturbing anyone in the house next next door.
Mary crept quietly around the neighbors pathway and into the back garden. The hutch was not locked and she carefully placed the remains, now beautiful once more, into it and made a hasty retreat.
Returning to her own kitchen it was time for some breakfast and await the results. her heart was still pounding and she dreaded the outcome.

How could a Cute Puppy . . . ? - No, it would never kill a rabbit
People buy dogs for their cute, loving appearances but how do they know what kind of animal they may become. This is not the same as Mary's dog but is shown as an insight into why we love them as pets.
Thank you God
About an hour later Mary heard the neighbor's screams and raced outside to innocently inquire if anything was the matter.
The neighbor was beside herself, dancing all over the place she could hardly get the words out but at last she said. "Its my rabbit, He died yesterday and I buried him and now I found him all nice and clean back in his hutch. It's a miracle."
Mary agreed and quickly retreated before she gave herself away by laughing at her own stupidity. Oh, well! At least the rabbit was clean and her dog really was innocent, completely off the hook.. She had never believe in miracles before but suddenly she was on her knees thanking God.
It was a marvel in that the neighbor never suspected the truth and everyone was exonerated.
