In part two, thanks in great part to your suggestions, help, and prayers a solution was arrived at.
In part three, I will tell y'all how it's going.
So far, in the dog trap that the Animal Control Officer lent to the Sheriff's Office and that the Deputy left at my house, we have captured the following:
Notice who's not there?
Yep, that would be Mae. She will lie next to it.
She will play with the dog who is in it.
She will try and help me release the bunny.
She still will not be caught.
She will sidle up next to you as long as you are not looking at her.
She will touch your hand with her nose as long as you are not looking at her (and your finger does NOT flex).
She dances, she whimpers, she whines, she talks, she follows you around.
She still will not be touched.
I will keep trying.
On a side note, Maggie evidently thinks this is some kind of agility training. I reset the trap, she gets in, springs it, and then gives me her belly like a good dog!
Juls just went to my house to forward the laundry and, praise God, Mae is in the crate. The vet will board her till Wednesday and then do all of the necessary procedures.
Hurray!!! and thank God that I get paid on Monday!
