Lois, the pet rabbit

The vet arrived. He saw Dad and Lois. He said, “Hello, John. I’m here to help. Where is the rabbit?” Dad pointed to the tractor. The vet looked under the tractor. He saw Lois. He said, “Oh, poor thing. She’s in bad shape. We need to get her out of there. Can you lift the tractor?”

Dad nodded. He said, “Yes, I can. It has a hydraulic jack. I can raise it up.” He went to the tractor. He pressed a button. The tractor lifted up. It made some space under it. The vet crawled under the tractor. He reached for Lois. He said, “Don’t worry, little one. I’m here to help. I won’t hurt you.”

He gently picked up Lois. He wrapped her in a blanket. He brought her out of the tractor. He said, “There, there. You’re safe now. Let me take a look at you.” He examined Lois. He checked her pulse, her breathing, and her wounds. He said, “She’s lost a lot of blood. She has some broken bones and internal injuries. She needs surgery. I have to take her to my clinic. It’s the only chance she has.”

Dad said, “Please, do whatever you can to save her. She’s my kids’ pet. They love her. They’ll be heartbroken if she dies.” The vet said, “I understand. I’ll do my best. But I can’t make any promises. She’s very weak. She might not make it.” Dad said, “I know. But please, try.” The vet said, “I will. Come on, let’s go.”

He carried Lois to his car. He put her in a cage. He said, “I’ll call you when I have news. Don’t lose hope.” He got in his car. He drove away. Dad watched him go. He said, “Good luck, Lois. I’m sorry. I hope you survive.” dads old tractor was still in the shed it had a new engine dad said
