I smell a rat!!!

Today I showed my humans what I was good for. Not that they don't love me just because I'm marvelous, soft, sweet, housetrained, etc.; but now they know that I can also earn my keep! They didn't have the camera out until after I found the varmit, but my humomma wondered why I was hanging out by the shed for so long, then she saw Katie join me in what appeared to be a hunt for something. When humomma got out to the shed I was halfway under this wood pile and wouldn't come out. It was a lot taller at the time, this is after they removed a bunch of the timbers. Humomma said it's all going in the burn pile next burn day!

After they removed about half the wood and I just kept getting closer and closer to that varmit it finally went scurrying out and I caught it, shook it really hard and snapped it's neck! Warning: not for the squeemish!

Hudaddy didn't know what to do with it and humomma had to grab me and Katie by the collars and drag us in to the house, then hudaddy put it in a plastic bag and got rid of it. This was no field mouse mind you, it was a gigantic RAT!!!

When I came back out I hunted and hunted and hunted for it, but just couldn't find it.

Ok, this is where I left it, where'd it go?
Hey, did it run away? I know I killed it!
Hmmm, I smell rat blood, yeah, THIS is where I left it!
Oh well, I've done my work for the day!
