Another proud moment occurred at the Grissinger farm this week when one of the tame rabbits decided to make a crafty escape. It took her three days of trailing but Remmy “the Shih Tzu” finally trapped the rabbit in the woodpile on Saturday. Remmy is now ranked among the beagles for her rabbit hunting abilities. (This time of year any entertainment is welcome.)
