Even though Dusty had second thoughts about converting her house to a public nuisance, as the officers called it, she was not going to take defeat sitting down.
"Officers, are you men of G_D?" she asked.
"Why yes, Ma'am, the lord is our shepherd," the tallest of the two officers responded.
"Well you then take a closer look at one of my bunnies."
"Ma'am, you are using one of the oldest trick in the book. Every day people use all kinds of excuses to talk us out of things. Any seasoned officer of the law has heard all the excuses and is resistant to falling for them."
"This is not an excuse. We both walk in the shadow of the lord (here she was getting her scriptures confused) and we need to be mindful of all beings, sentient and otherwise (and now she was getting her religious mixed up)."
"You use some impressive words, Ma'am. What would you like us to do?"
"Well, come over here and get down on your knees."
"You aren't going to knock us out with a stick," one of the officers joked.
"Of course not. Just come over here and spend a few minutes with one of the bunnies."
Dusty said very politely as she handed each of the men a magnifying glass.
"Now look at the bunnies and notice their luscious garb. Notice the sheen in their hairs. Notice how they tend to quiver as they look back at you (unbeknownest to the men, she blew gently on the bunny to make it quiver a little)."
"Wow!" one of the officers exclaimed, "did you see that guy move."
"Hold on to your gun," the other office warned.
"No, take a look at that little critter. She is a real looker!"
