ok he's a Whippet/Collie cross and nearly 2 yo now but he's never really shown much interest in catching rabbits. He loves to chase them and could have easily caught some (a few have even run right into him) but in the last week he's killed two.
The first one barely moved, Barney runs up to it catches it and goodnight wabbit. Yesterday he chased a big posse of them from a distance and they made their escape, one however was caught out and hiding somewhere, Barney could sense it was there (I think) and started sniffing it out, wabbit makes a break for it and Barney moves like I've only seem him move a couple of times before (and he is fast) and goodnight wabbit part II. He shook it about a bit, a few munches (no broken skin that I could see) on the head/neck area and that was the end of his interest.
So question is, does he now have the "taste" for it? Or are "last years" rabbits particularly easy to catch at this time of year and simply too easy an opportunity for Barney to turn down?
