Early this morning, just before walking, there was a turkey next door...then at the other side across the street, there were 3 more! So I was all excited before I even left my yard.
On my walk I decided it was time to hunt. All of a sudden I jumped headlong into the very tall grass and day lily leaves at the side of the path. Of course then I couldn't see anything...So I had to do these bounding leaps to get anywhere and see what ever it was I was searching for. Then I would put my snout into the bottom of this growth, turn on my propeller tail, and have a good sniff! Growlmy thinks it may have been a mouse or vole that caught my attention by its rustling.
By the time I gave up...the tall growth had a visible path in it, where I had smashed it all flat! But no prey...
A little ways further, I started the same routine again. This time when my head was down, growlmy threw a small stone just in front of where I was sniffing...but of course I didn't know that...and I did a big leap to where I heard the prey rustling again.
Nothing...just the silly stone with growlmy's scent on it. Fooled!
Not only fooled, but sopping wet! From all the dew on those tall plants! Whatever. I shook it off, all over growlmy! BOL!
Well it was time to get on with my walk anyways...
Then I saw a rabbit...but of course it got away, as usual.
BOL!! I du 'boundin' leaps' in wegular gwass cuz my leggies r so short!!
Turkeys??? OMD!! How dem ged out ob da fweezer an' dose plastic bags dem r in????
That sounds like fun. Turkeys and rabbits to chase - you're a lucky dog!
