52 on Friday (Week 15): My Favorite Things

This week’s theme is “my favorite things” and the goal is to photograph one favorite thing of Roxy’s that I will forever associate with her. Well, there are many… but thanks to Easter being last weekend — and to the Easter Bunny bringing me a Godiva basket — I was able to photograph something that is so very, very “Roxy.” (Please pay no attention to the fact that half of it is mysteriously missing!)

A chocolate bunny? Are you nuts? Chocolate is poisonous to dogs! These things, I know. But hear me out… Roxy *LOVES* to chase bunnies (and jackrabbits). Greg started referring to them one evening as “chocolate bunnies” because when Roxy goes out for her last potty break of the night, the bunnies are usually sitting on a hill, lit from behind by the lights from neighboring houses, and they look like — you guessed it — chocolate bunnies! So, there you have it… why “chocolate bunnies” are one of Roxy’s favorite things and why they will always make me think of her.

    I suspect that my dogs would love bunnies too . . . but they’ve never seen a live one that wasn’t in a cage. Cool photo . . . even though half of the bunny is mysteriously missing.

    Awesome image to tell a great story. The ‘mysteriously missing’ half has me smiling.
    For my girls it’s the Possums at night they love to go racing full tilt to the back fence while the possums wait for the last second before racing up the trees.
