Visitor in the Brush

The mighty huntress, Queen Natasha, was once again at it on one of our hikes.  We were at the observation deck on the top of a mountain when she thought she saw something in the brush.  Not sure if she wanted to play with it or eat it:


You!  Over there!  Come play!


Crawling under the board


Do I look like Zim of the A04 Hanging Ten (or Eight)?


Woo!  Where did it go?

    I bet it was a stupid squirrel. They never want to play with me. Just because I bit the head off of a squirrel ONE time doesn’t mean I’m going to do it again!

    I wonder if it was something that could have been very tasty?

    Definitely play first, then eat. As long as it isn’t poisonous. Just don’t jump!!!

    You sure look excited to get whatever it was!

    I agree with Khyra! Play then eat! 🙂

    You pups need to be careful. What do you do when you see a snake? My Mom lived in NC and had a dog bit by a Copperhead and it was a rough bite. Dog made it but her and my brother was real worried that she might not.

    What was it? Did you ever see it? Maybe it was a lizard. They’re fun to chase.

    Play THEN eat!

    Oh yes!

    Woo be Zim of The East!
