After a long day at the ofﬁ ce, Chris came home one day and found his dog with the neighbour’s
pet rabbit in his mouth. The rabbit was obviously dead. Chris panicked!
“If my neighbours ﬁ nd out my dog killed their bunny, they’ll hate me forever,” he thought.
So he took the dirty, chewed up rabbit into the house, gave it a bath and blow-dried its fur.
Chris knew his neighbours kept their backdoor open during the summer, so he sneaked
inside and put the bunny back into the cage, hoping his neighbours would think it died of natural
A couple of days later Chris and his neighbour saw each other outside.
“Did you hear that Fluffy die?” the neighbour asked.
“Oh. Uhmm... Sorry to hear that. What happened?” Chris mumbled.
The neighbour replied, “We just found him dead in his cage one day. But the strange thing is that
the day after we buried him, we went out to dinner and someone must have dug him up, gave
him a bath and put him back into the cage!”
