Last week, Blanca experienced a blitz attack by a large dog and was bitten in the face. I was walking her on the leash at the time, but it all happened so fast that neither of us reacted at all. It was quite a shock to the system for both of us. Her facial wounds were not too serious and are healing quickly, but she has been a little subdued since then.
As it happens, I’m taking care of 8 baby rabbits this weekend (and mom), and their owner encouraged me to bring them inside for a visit with Blanca. Thus, the timely opportunity arose for some gentle bunny therapy! I have to admit I was a little apprehensive about how excited Blanca might get when confronted with hopping baby bunnies and whether she could stay calm and gentle. For a time, I did put her in another room while the babies explored, but when I brought her back, she really surprised me! She was fantastic!
