Woofie Wednesday and Wrascally Wabbits

A couple of news stories today. The first one from Rueters, is about a dog who did his duty, even after being shot.

BERLIN – A dog in Germany shot by a drunken man with a gun took swift revenge by biting off the end of the man's nose, authorities said on Monday.

Police said the armed man was snooping at night in the yard of a house in Stadtlauringen in northern Bavaria when he shot the Bernese mountain dog from point-blank range.

Before collapsing, the dog leapt at the 39-year-old man and bit off the end of his nose, a local police spokesman said.

Bleeding profusely, the man called police and was taken for treatment in a nearby hospital. His motives for being in the yard were unclear, police said.

Doctors removed a bullet from the dog's shoulder and discharged [him] from a clinic after an operation lasting several hours.

Now that is what I would call a GOOD Dog! He probably deserves a whole box of treats. Do they have Temptations for woofies? If not, what kind of treats they get?

Meanwhile, in Rio Rancho New Mexico, the Associated Press reports that A New Mexico woman with an affinity for rabbits has run afoul of the law after her rascally pets started multiplying like, well, rabbits. Rio Rancho police said Monday that Nancy Haseman was cited under an ordinance that allows five pets per household after an animal control officer found 334 bunnies hopping around in her yard.

The officer spotted the animals last month after a neighbor complained about rabbits eating her garden.

Haseman says her husband rescued a rabbit 12 years ago after a neighbor abandoned it, then the couple began rescuing more bunnies.

She says they kept the males separate from the females, but the males hopped the fence and things got "out of control."

Haseman says the couple hoped to help the animals.

Rescue groups have found homes for about half the Haseman rabbits.

That's lot of eastern bunnies! What? They in the west? Oh well, then that a lot of western bunnies!

(When the western bunny come bring treats? No one tell me 'bout this before. Needs investigating!)
