Mighty hunter girl

Like most dog owners ( I imagine) I take the dogs out just before bedtime. Last night it was snowing - a really beautiful, light snow, enough to cover the ground. No pawprints showing, no wind blowing anything around, just lovely.
There was one set of tracks already in the snow before the dogs went out. A nice, clear set of bunny tracks. I saw it, so I had a feeling things would get interesting.
Golly, Roc and Ceilidh did their thing without even going into the back yard - they were tired, it was cold and the nearest sideyard comfort station was fine. So they went back in.
Dax galloped into the backyard. I followed at a slower pace. And almost got run over by a bunny - followed in short order by a French bulldog. One of these days we're going to have
Hasenpfeffer. That Dax can motor!

She can come live with my guys.

We'll make her an official terrier.

I'm sure the look on her face was fun too. Was she smiling in excitement?

Mine do.

Tessa and her mom Tara once caught a mouse. I don't know who was more surprised - the mouse or the dogs. Once they'd caught it, they weren't too sure what to do with it, and I eventually scooped it into a box and popped it outside.

Funny how some of the old terrier genes still come through from time to time....

Too funny! I love to see my girl's ears perk when they spot something to stalk! I would have loved to see the look on your face when Dax almost knocked you over.

I don't know who was smiling bigger - me or Dax when we went in the house. Silly girl!
