Arrival Story: We searched for 2 months for a Black & Siver Male puppy and we finally found one. He was 2 1/2 half hours away so my Husband voluteered to go get him while I was at work. He threw up on him and then pooped in the crate on the trip home. Miraculously they both made it home in one piece...but incredibly messy.
Bio: I am the sweetest boy that ever was. I demand attention all the time and I am totally devoted to my mom. Playing is alright but being petted is much better!
Well pups I had my first try at Earth Dog and boy was that fun, fun fun!!
I got to bark, whine, paw and try to find this rat in a metal cage.
At first the lady had it out in the open so I could find it. Then she started dragging it around to get me worked up. Then she hid it in a wooden box and when I figured that out she put a lid on it and made it a small tunnel with the rat at the end.
Once I knew where that rat was and went after it, they made it harder and made the tunnel longer with a turn in it. Then mom and the lady encourage me to stay at the rat and bark, growl and bite at it's cage and they told me what a good boy I was.
I got to try a bigger tunnel next with one big turn...boy was that scary and dark...and in the ground!! Mom had to help me with that one but I eventually found that rat and stayed on it until mom opened up the tunnel petted me and told me what a good boy I was and took me out.
All in all it was a pretty fantastic day!
Of course when I got home I had to rub it in to Reece, just like he does to me when he comes home from agility!!
Mickey "Rat" Hunter
PS since I didn't actually get to taste those rats not sure if they taste like chicken!!
Well pups the weather is gorgeous and my girl pup Zoe is having a Barkday today....what a wonderful day!!
Happy Barkday to my girl pup Zoe!!
Not only is it a nice day and it is Zoe's Barkday, but mom says I get to go with her on Saturday to something called "earth dog" practice!
arrroooooooooooooooooooo it's about time I get to go do something with mom.
You know I won't brag about it here, only to my annoying brother that gets to go all the time to agility!
Mom says it will be fun and I will get to sniff out rats!! I don't know if I have every tasted rat...does it taste like chicken? She also said I will be able to dig and go in a tunnel in the ground. Gee that will be different, not getting in trouble for digging and getting dirty!
Wow, what a way to wake up this morning and see my cute little face on the Dogster Homepage! Thanks Dogster for picking my Diary today!
Well, pups the Mickey Man's hunting adventures continued yesterday I was out in the yard helping dad. I helped him corral some pesky squirrels that have been driving us crazy, they had made a home in the siding and down our walls in the bedroom where we sleep!! I kept waking up and hearing them scratch around all night long and it was driving me nuts!! I would go and sit at the corner of the room and whine at them! Mom says I kept her up all night but it was those pesky squirrels that done it!!
I helped scare them out of their hole and dad shot them with a 22, I told him to just let me at them I would kill them for him!!(Mom here...Dad used moth balls to get them out of the siding)!
Well after I helped Dad clean up those pesky squirrels we look down and right below the side of the house was a big ole black snake!! Dad said I couldn't kill him he was a good snake and he scared him out of the yard, but boy I kept looking for him after that.
See without me our house would be overrun with nasty pesky critters!
