RE: Rabbits/Romeo

LOL! Chris, your house looks like mine. Except I have THREE of everything.
As the adoptive mom of two new Boxer boys I can honestly say what you did
was a great thing. People always want puppies, which of course, there's
nothing like it, but adopting adult dogs is wonderful. He'll probably do
SOME garden damage, as mine have, but nothing you can't handle. ;-D Of
course, we both may be wishing for some robotic laser cannons before summer
gets here.
