    Your zone seems similar to mine-a bit cooler.

    I did Google "Russian hare" in an effort to find a photo to post. From what I can decipher, a Russian hare is a sniper. I'd run if a Russian hare rushed out of the forest for sure.

    Real life Russian hero turned Xbox game star?

    Yes, I knew. :)

    I sure hope we aren't confusing Larisa with our teasing and jokes. She seems to have such a good sense of humor herself, but somethings are lost in translation from one language/one culture to another.:love

    I love jokes. All told, I laugh too much.
    Our hare changes color. In winter, the hare turns white. In winter, the hare can damage young fruit trees. So our gardeners women-never throw away old pantyhose. They wrap the trunks of young trees, the old pantyhose. It does not harm the trees, but rabbits and mice can not gnaw it. I'm sorry but it's true.

    This hare-child. I guess it is like a rabbit.

    I love dogs so much. But my Aina died not long ago. She was 15 years old. It's .:oops::(.. I'm not ready for another dog.

    Another difference between hares and rabbits, hares are born eyes open and a full coat of fur, rabbits, eyes shut and bald.
    Flemish Giants can get really big 20+ pounds, you'd think they'd be classed as a meat rabbit but they're not, they're classed as a fancy. At least that's the way it was when we were into raising rabbits.

    Yes, like our snowshoe rabbit, aka varying hare. We have them on our property but they aren't seen too often, other than their tracks in the snow.
    I'm sure they're very wary because of our dogs.

    Sorry to hear about your Aina, Larisa. I lost a good dog not long ago also.
    They really are attached very firmly to our hearts.
