Whilst strolling up the path, a baby bunny (wee Thad) appeared before us in the greenery, his mother abreast. As our hearts brook at the tender display, Tara stepped closer and I warned with concern, shaping the tone of my voice, "Don't step too close!" As I spoke, the baby bunny (wee Thad) flattened his precious little bunny ears quaking in fear, frozen. His mother, struck by Tara's jaunty advance ran for the bushes. Saving herself and leaving poor baby bunny (wee Thad) vulnerable to deaths hollow kiss.
