Joy and the Strange Creature

I took my dog, Joy, outside yesterday. She suddenly charged at something in the yard next door. I thought it was a squirrel. Whatever it was went under a bush where Joy couldn’t reach it. She kept wagging her tail and trying to get to whatever was there. I saw something come out from under the bush and head towards the section of yard between our houses. Joy ran right after it with more eagerness than I’ve ever seen her have. I don’t think she had any idea what the creature was, but she sure enjoyed chasing it. I wish I’d had my camera out there to record her fun. It was a rabbit and I watched as it hopped erratically around that patch of land between our houses while Joy tried to chase it. I don’t think Joy has ever chased anything that was so unpredictable in its movements. Finally the rabbit seemed to tire of the game and bounded into the backyard where Joy could not go. She certainly tried to follow the rabbit. I don’t know what she would have done with it, had she caught it. Hopefully when I gave the command to “Drop It!” she would have, but it never appeared that Joy would make contact with the creature, although she had a delightful time trying.
