Lets Hear it for the rabbit
The silly season is surely open us when that organ of record, the Berwickshire News
has, as its lead story : NINE DAYS STUCK DOWN A RABBIT HOLE BUT TERRIER BROOK IS NONE THE WORSE FOR HER ORDEAL
The front page also carries a large photo of the 'mongrel terrier' being comforted by her owner and son from whom Brook escaped chasing rabbits and then spent 9 days in a burrow before being dug out. Bringing the affair 'to a perfect conclusion'
The lesson apparently is -if you lose a pet never give up hope, miracles can happen.
Another lesson could be learning how to discourage your best friend, especially if intellectually challenged, from chasing inoffensive wild life. Perhaps they believed that mongrels are especially intelligent and would only go places from which it can easily return.
Not a word about the rabbits.
(we don't know whether or not the image is of the rabbit that Brook chased. But possibly similar, so will have to do)
