lisaann Well, I sucked it up and found an area amongst the hostas to dig a deep hole, about 18". Dumped that rabbit in there and buried the thing. Princess won't bother it, she never bothered it just laying on the ground. She is in it for the "play" factor. When it doesn't move, she's done.
Decided I couldn't subject the poor garbage guys to the stink....
The Princess was under the weather yesterday. She began licking like she had peanut butter on her nose. Then she vomited twice. Went outside, she was looking for grass to eat. Not much there now. I went around the fence line and found her some. Funny dogs know what they need, must have been nauseated. Came in, went back out later. Then she took a nap and snored right through our walk time, drank a lot of water when she woke up. After that she acted normal, went for a short walk. I fed her only 1/2 her usual food along with some rice. Back to normal now. I had visions of disturbing the vet on Easter. Glad we didn't need to do that.
She never eats anything different and doesn't eat dead critters. There's nothing in the yard she can get in to. I guess dogs get sick once in a while like people do.

I would like to bury critters in my garden, but dogs, fox, coyotes, possums, and I suppose bears dig them up and destroy an area. So I just carry them out into the field behind the house and leave them for buzzards. For handling most wastes, I keep a covered, 5-gal slops bucket on the back porch. I do not like having even a banana peel in the kitchen over night. Stuff ferments quickly in the bucket. I used to add its contents to a compost pile, but now I spread it under shrubs. In a day or two, everything except egg shells is broken down and brown like mulch.
All our problems would be solved if only we would change our ways.
The Princess is no longer the perfect friend. She was a bad dog last night. I was making pizza and had all the stuff on the counter. I had cut up Canadian bacon on a cutting board. I left to go change over laundry. Coming up the stairs I heard an odd noise. Princess met me at the basement door. I went to the counter to resume pizza, looked around and didn't see any Canadian bacon except a few pieces! She ate it! She has never done that before. I ordered her out of the kitchen for a timeout. She slowly walked away. I think she knew Momma was not happy. Then she was peeking at me from around the corner.

You cannot trust a dog when it comes to food. I left two French crullers in a bag on the coffee table for less than 60 seconds to take Cheryl her donut and coffee, came back and Gunner had woofed down both of them and left an empty bag on the floor.

I guess that's what they mean by 'the honeymoon's over'! The Chinese have the philosophy that you do not necessarily want to reach perfection because once you do, there is only one direction left to go: imperfection!
For all our cat training we do, I am convinced they are dancing on the tables when we are gone.
