A Tale of Woe
I was going to name this post "A Tail of Woe" but my daughter who reads this blog would just groan. So I didn't-but I mentioned it so it exists. Life has been quite exciting for us the past two days. Especially for Frodo. You remember last year on how Frodo was escaping the compound . I am happy to say that we have successfully kept him safely inside the fenced in back yard.
Frodo loves to patrol, it is one of his traits as well as hunt vermin, that's what terriers do. So every day he looks out those tiny diamond fence holes seeking a rabbit. When he spots one, he barks like mad. We then pick him up and take him inside for a while. It's been on going and slightly annoying. But he's inside right?
Well.....two days ago, I went to check on him outside and I saw him with a very floppy rabbit in his mouth. It was not full grown and I was pretty sure it was not alive. I skillfully had Frodo inside the house and the poor little rabbit outside for my son to move when he returned from classes. I was too sad to look.
Yesterday, while Frodo was out, I heard squealing and yes, he caught another one! This time the rabbit was saved by us, he lives :) I felt so happy!! Later that day, my husband boarded up the fence behind our little flower bed where they might be coming in. He also cleaned up the flower bed which was mainly lemon balm gone wild.
See how sad the gnome is? He is hanging his head in shame.....We have our fingers crossed that Frodo's playmates will chose another place to linger. Fingers are crossed. Oh Frodo....your adventures are endless!
