After much deliberation and reasons why my other siblings are unable to do
so, I have agreed to take care of my family's two dogs for a couple of days
during their vacation. I have the logistics worked out- when Andrew and I
are at work during the day, buns will be safely in their cage in our bedroom
as usual, only with the door shut. Then during the evening, the buns can run
free in the living/dining area, and the dogs will be confined to the
bedroom. Dogs in question are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, so they're
small, and one is quite geriatric, so he doesn't need a lot of room anyway.
They're very sweet-tempered and quiet, but I'm not stupid- I know there is a
possibility that their instincts to chase little fuzzy things might kick in.
That's why canine residents will be separated from lagomorph residents at
all times. I have a few questions, though-
-Not long ago, someone mentioned on this newsgroup that it was dangerous for
dogs to ingest rabbit poops. Is this true? I know these dogs pretty well,
and they are definitely the curious type (if you know what I mean).
-We have a window air conditioner in the dining room, and when we shut the
bedroom door, I'm concerned this might pose a problem for the bunnies.
There's a pretty nice electric fan in there- if I crank it up all the way,
do you think that will keep the bunnies cool enough?
Does anyone have any other suggestions on how to avoid problems with this
