I couldn’t find any video of a man biting a dog. The best I could do was “fuzzy little bunny rabbit chases big black dog all around the barnyard.” The chickens, I regret to say, were not amused.
Because animals are so much more intelligent than we give them credit for, they can learn behaviors that don’t seem natural to them. The dog’s supposed to eat the bunny, right? But he’s not going to, and the bunny knows it.
What ever happened to “There are old bunnies, and there are bold bunnies, but there are no old, bold bunnies”? Like, who ever heard of rabbits playing with dogs? Aren’t dogs supposed to eat rabbits?
Not in these videos, they don’t. We don’t yet have the lion and the lamb lying down together, with the little child to lead them; but we do have dogs and bunnies being friends and playmates. That’s a good start–just a little glimpse of what our God has in store for us, down the road.
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.
Wait a minute. Dogs chase rabbits so they can eat them. Rabbits run away from dogs because they’re terrified of being eaten. But that’s not what’s going on here, is it?
Another glimpse into the Peaceable Kingdom, when it’s ready for us…
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.
(Crikey, there’s such low readership today! Wish I knew why.)
Someday the lion and the lamb will lie down together. In the meantime, dogs and bunnies can play and cuddle together.
Who would’ve thought it? Like, dogs eat rabbits, right? Maybe we’re getting a glimpse into what God has in store for His whole creation.
All right, they can’t play Clue, or Parcheesi, or Mad-Libs; but rabbits and dogs do like to play, and they’ll play with each other. Who says the dogs always eat the bunnies?
I think these unexpected animal friendships are a peek into what’s in store for us when God finishes His work of reclaiming and restoring His creation.
