Dogs & Bunnies: The Obstreporation

Betcha never thought you were ever gonna see that word in a headline, eh? But obstreporation is sort of what these dogs and bunnies do, once they get going.

    It’s fun to watch. Each species plays as is proper for kind. Bunnies do a lot of hopping when they play, as bunnies have been doing since the beginning of time. Dogs lunge and then retreat. If there was a cat in the mix, you’d see wrestling moves that would impress a TV wrestler. Yet, somehow, they make it work and seem to enjoy playing with another animal, even if it plays quite differently from their own species.
