Snuggling Dog and Bunny

I’m sure I’ve heard it said somewhere that dogs eat rabbits and rabbits run away from dogs. But I don’t think these two have heard it. All right, it’s obvious the poor dog wants to take a nap, he doesn’t feel like chasing anything. But does he have to let the bunny snuggle him all over? You’d think the bunny loves the dog. And maybe he does.

  1. Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a rabbit this affectionate and persistent,
    even with another rabbit. Reminds me of the way these stray cats act with my son’s dog.

  2. As best I understand the Bible, animals were never meant to be predators or prey. Their capacity for affection, enjoyment of a warm touch and apparent fascination with other species are all understandable. Humans are much the same, we enjoy affection and a fascinated by animals, too. I don’t mean this dogmatically, but I’m beginning to think that there is some change happening, perhaps first with our domestic animals, but once Christ reigns, I believe it’s a simple matter for God to change the instincts of the wild creatures.

    1. Thanks, Joshua. There’s no way to know,,to a certainty, the scope of effect from Adam’s sin, but it is obviously very great. Whenever I see an animal in distress, it breaks my heart. Our world fell a great distance when sin entered the picture.
