But as soon as that front door was open, she spotted a little furry rabbit sitting in the front yard, and she completely forgot about breakfast. Or at least, her thoughts of breakfast changed from me providing it for her to her possibly obtaining it for herself!
She sat statue-like, staring out the screen door. She barely breathed. Her ears were perked as high as they could go. Not a muscle moved.
But the rabbit did! (move, that is) As soon as he heard my voice, he hopped away through the flower beds and on toward safety in the woods.
I tried to distract Annie by offering her breakfast and standing between her and the door. She simply stood up and tried to look around me - completely blew me off!
When she realized she could no longer see the rabbit out the front door, she ran to the back door and searched the back yard. Nothing. She ran to the living room and stood up to look out the windows. Nothing.
After a couple times of this, and after me getting breakfast out of the frig, she finally gave up on fresh meat for breakfast and settled for the breakfast I could give her.
THE END (told you it was a short tale!)
