This one has been around for many years but I keep getting emails and seeing it crop up in websites and blogs with many vivid details as if it really happened to the writer. It didn’t.
The basic story is that a family dog came trotting in into the yard carrying the neighbors’ dead rabbit in its mouth. The owners panic because they don’t want to have a bad relationship with the neighbors. They wash it, blow dry it and sneak over to the neighbor’s yard to put it back in the cage.
The neighbors are horrified when they discover the dead rabbit, not because it is dead, but because it died the day before and they had buried it.
A variation is that the dog owners bought a rabbit just like the dead one and put it into the cage. The neighbors are convinced that this is a rabbit god.
Expect to see this one around for a long time.
