awesome! I'm always happy to vote for an attack bunny!

(too much monty python & too much Bunnicula can do that to a person, I guess)

& the Gaggle of Girls; so many shirts, so little space in the dresser!

I always thought it had to be a beaver, or perhaps a nutria, which are both aquatic rodents who would have been curious about the canoe. He probably just saw the teeth and leaped (hah!) to the conclusion that it was a rabbit. Regardless, i doubt it really attacked him, but he probably was startled.

There was a photo taken and is out there somewhere on the internet courtesy of the national archives or something like that. In the high res photo you can see it's definately a rabbit

When I first read this, I thought of Jimmy Carter and the rabbit both having big teeth. I'm glad you included the rabbit's.
