Dax had an adventure today!

Postby Sabine » Wed Aug 08, 2012 2:59 pm

There was much barking and leaping going on in the back yard, and when I came outside to see what's causing the commotion, I saw this!

Whoa, a rat, but very cool! He won't have to think twice about those rats in cages next time he sees them at a trial. :)

Yes, he was very excited and pranced around with it for about 5 minutes before I could finally take it away! :) No kisses for him right now. :sick: lol

I guess he's living up to his instincts! He'll give the cats a run for their jobs. (honestly my first reaction was :sick: but it's one less rat.)

ETA: my dog is absolutely no help catching anything - he runs from those giant bugs faster than i do. sissy. :lol:

I just followed him while he was running around with it, showing it off. lol Eventually he got tired of that and just laid it down. Since I didn't want him to think it was something he wasn't allowed to have, I didn't tell him to drop it.

ahh, good point. i am positive i wouldn't have thought about that *in the moment* but then again, for *my* dog, that's something he is definitely NOT allowed to have. dead catfish? not such a big deal in the big picture. :lol:

Dax needs to come to our house. I have at least two rats stealing our tomatoes and strawberries. Good boy!

Ha! It looks like a pretty big mouse?! Or maybe Dax is littler than I thought. :love: He didn't want to eat it??

Good work, Dax! Between him and the cats, you should have a rodent-free property for quite a while!

I thought that too at first, but I think it's just the sunlight, Dax' whiskers, and the white chin hairs making the rat appear to be multicolored.

Dax has no competition from the cats, they aren't allowed outside. And the one time a (cute little) rat came into the house, they chased and batted at the poor thing, and one even bit it, but they didn't manage to kill it. 5 of them!!!! rofl lol I felt so sorry for the rat, so I took a mop and pushed it outside after the cats had cornered it once again and didn't know what to do. Outside, the neighbor's outdoor cat, who is a very successful hunter, was already waiting because it heard the poor thing scream. :(

And Judy is right - it's a greyish brown rat with a somewhat lighter belly.

What a good boy, Dax (buttons popping) :thumbup: . Glad to see his instincts are kicking in. How about a nice opossum, or even a fox next? That would make me VERY happy!

Well, I did see that possum sneaking around the other night, so who knows. I very much doubt that we'll see a fox around here though!

I had a dream that Elsie killed a rat... I think it's the fault of this post!
