Backyard Rabbits

I walk in my yard and I see no rabbits. I see no rabbit tracks. I see no rabbit droppings. "I crowche downe too ye grounde but fynde nor spoore nor scent."

But when I let the dogs out, their first stop is always a scatter of droppings.

I think they watch the yard all day to see where the passing herds of rabbit do their business. Nothing else for them to do. If I was a dog locked behind a fence all day, I'd be bored enough to bark at passing joggers, too.
