“Is he saying she needs more calcium in her diet?”
“A young Mother Hubbard though.."really when would I need a bone that big for my dog."
Ironically years later she would regret turning down the offer.”
“Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard to get her poor dog a bone,
But when she bent over, the ole dog got a bone of his own.”

Actually, that's a damn good guess.
The Wolpertinger (Crisensus bavaricus) (also called "Wolperdinger", "Poontinger" or "Woiperdinger") is a fictional animal said to inhabit the alpine forests of Bavaria in Germany. It has body parts of various animals — generally wings, antlers, and fangs, all attached to the body of a small mammal. The most widespread description is that of a horned rabbit or a horned squirrel. It is similar to the Rasselbock of the Thuringian Forest, the Elwedritsche of the Palatinate region, which is described as a chicken-like creature with antlers, and to the American invention of the jackalope, as well as to the Swedish Skvader.
Stuffed Wolpertingers, composed of parts of real stuffed animals, are often displayed in inns or sold to tourist as souvenirs in the animals' "native regions".
The Wolpertinger is not a typical cryptid, as local people probably never believed in its existence. Rather, it is some kind of traditional joke, as is evident from the many stuffed Wolpertingers displayed in village inns along with real hunting trophies, which have been fabricated deliberately in order to make fun of gullible foreigners who may want to go hunting for this remarkable animal.
Like the jackalope, the Wolpertinger is thought to have been inspired by sightings of wild rabbits infected with the Shope papilloma virus, which causes the growth of antler-like tumors in various places on the rabbit's head and body.
Basically, take a jackalope, add fangs and some pigeon wings and you've got yourself a Poontinger!
“It's coming right for us!!!”
“When I moved to Winterpeg I remember being shocked to see fur bearing trout (ref. Jim Bridger), jackalopes and buck toothed pike in Taxidermist shops.”
“I had no idea there were flying jackalopes –”
