This is how I feel.

Due to the time of night it was the rabbits were out in force, the pair of them took off after them, and disappeared around the back of the thicket. Well.... Misty came tearing back with a dead baby bunny in her mouth. For a heart stopping moment I thought she'd actually gone and caught it. On closer inspection it was obvious she hadn't, as something had been snacking on it. After we persuaded her that she wasn't getting it for supper, we continued to the river, where they both spent a good half hour splashing in the shallows.
Watching her playing in the river with Murphy, fetching sticks, it was easy to see how happy she can be. I believe her good moments are still outweighing the bad ones, and I think as long as they do we'll be okay.
