A good friend of mine had a 10 lb. 4 oz. baby boy. Of course, new birth brings on stories of large babies and labor. Having seen my children born and being around animals, sheep, cows, pigs, rabbits, chickens, cats and dogs, I am well-versed on motherhood.

Sheep have a nasty habit of not accepting lambs once in awhile. Cows just let their newborns drop onto the ground at birth. Cats, dogs and pigs are so busy feeding their litters that their babies lack quality time. Chickens have little to do but sit around on their eggs and chicks.

My vote goes to the bunnies. What other mother makes such a warm nest lined with the fur she pulls from her own pelt. This doe will act as a decoy to lure danger away from the nursery.

We women might do the decoy thing but pulling our hair out? That comes later.
