Zoie the Hunting Dog....eeeeeeuuuuuuuwwww!

Yesterday afternoon, as the sun set, we took the dogs out front to play a bit. Zoie is becoming quite adventurous. Here, I think she’s picking up a stick. (It was hard to see through the viewfinder at dusk.) And off she goes. I’m praising her for her first retrieve. And then, realization hits.

Here, I’m screaming to MLH, “Oh, my God, Honey! Catch her! It’s a dead squirrel!”…as she beelines for our open front door. MLH caught her right before she got through the threshold.

That...was...nassssssstttttttttyyyyyyyy!

Poor Zoie, just doing what comes naturally! Dead birds are better? (Actually I think they probably are, but I would have loved to have seen this.)

Way to go, Zoie! She's a hunter all right. What a cutie. Have I said that already? :-)

Dead squirrels smell way better than sticks.

We're surprised she didn't roll in it. That's what The Boy likes to do with dead garden snakes.

Pam - it was quite comical, I assure you.
Rach - I know, funny, huh?
Scott - thanks for the reminder!
Poet - as were we, after it was over!
Sandy - thanks, sweetie.
Gwynne - thanks, girl. She is a sweetie - when she's not using us for teething rings!
Cub - we're surprised she didn't roll in it, too. I guess that comes next. Thanks for coming by!

Hey Janie our dog did the exact same thing, except she made it into the house. I threw it into the wastebasket-made the wastebasket smell so bad we had to throw it away!
Looks like she's gonna be a good retriever!
