Frankie and Typhoon are the leaders of hunting rabbits that make the mistake of entering the perimeter of Sibe Quentin, but a certain fluffy dog surprised everyone yesterday.
No, no, Qannik, you are slow. Need we remind everyone of the video we posted just the other day?
The most efficient rabbit hunter, the speedy Typhoon, is convinced something was wrong.
And Frankie, Typhoon’s partner in crime in hunting rabbits, had only one comment.
Hu-Dad was unaware that a rabbit had been caught until he stepped outside to feed breakfast. Q-Tip proudly trotted up with the rabbit in his mouth. That, of course, led to the “Remove the rabbit from the Sibe’s mouth” game. Not highly recommended for entertainment to start a human’s day.

What Weather When?
March 26, 2023
How do you dress for a day in the Western North Carolina Mountains? Just answer what weather when? Good luck with that.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Undercarriage Dog Wash
Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
Leena says she loves to catch Mice, Rats and Possums. However, we have very little problem getting them away from her. We trained her and our previous husky to drop toys and such early on on command. Amazingly, it works rather well with these little furies too. Sometimes, as huskies will, she gets a little stubborn but a little louder/sterner voice and the command sticks. Though she will lay down and guard the obviously dead creature should it magically resurrect to flee again.
Love this post, and all the comments! (And Qannik, of course!)
Drop the bunny/squirrel/chipmunk seems to go best when offered bacon, steak, smoked salmon, turkey or whatever handy top rated treat is handy to grab fast. Woofers here always seem to be willing to make a trade for something really worthwhile and with less fur on it to stick to the roof of your mouth.
Ha! Lightning has the speed of Typhoon without a doubt. It would be a very close finish in a race. But his rabbit catching skills are unbelievable. He even managed to sneak one in the house once without Mom seeing it. She discovered the very large critter on Lightning’s bed:(
Woos – Ciara and Lightning
Sitka got one too–and I was unsuccessful in removing it from her mouth. I just gave up and let her have it. She devoured it quite thoroughly, with not even a drop of blood left over. Yuck!
Yes, all of mine have tried with rabbits,but only one mine has been successful! Boo got one and we believe the only way she got it was that she cornered it away from it hole and it didn’t know what to do. And Boo isn’t fast,she a little on the chunky side,so it must be she used logic.
We are fairly sure that logic is not Q’s strength either. Let’s just say experience tells us that.
It’s Wabbit season!!! I really like the stealth theory (above post) but thinking the cotton ball theory wins??????
Remove the rabbit from the sibe’s mouth game is at least better than the remove rat or lizard that my sibes like to play with me.
Qannik didn’t have to be fast. He just needed to be stealthy to sneak up on the rabbit… Slow and steady as to not scare the rabbit, and then CHOMP (the gator technique)! Or maybe the bunny wasn’t scared of Qannik because he looks like a big fluff of cotton and thought he was harmless.
We think the big fluff of cotton is the best theory so far.
