Baby Bunnies

Aren't these baby bunnies adorable?  

Our neighbor called us over this week to show us a bunny nest he found in his yard.  We were amazed because these babies were just buried under a clump of dirt - very close to the surface.  We always thought that bunnies dug deep burrows for their homes.  This nest was right by the house and next to the steps going up to their deck.  Our neighbors have a dog that goes in and out of there all the time.  Both this neighbor and their next door neighbor have dogs that are loose.  

After looking at the babies all of us were standing around talking with the two dogs running around when we realized that one of the dogs had quickly grabbed one of the babies and ran off with it.  We heard a little tiny squeak and before we could stop the dog the little baby was gone.  

Oh, the circle of life...I hope the remaining babies make it.  Maybe that why bunnies have so many babies.
