I had a great day today. Mom and dad took me for a walk at Zorinsky Lake . There were soooo many great smells! One of my favorites was all the deer poo that was on the ground!
We walked into the brush and trees so dad could place his newest geocache. Along the way I was sniffing and checking out what was hidden under the snow and grass. Every once in a while I would stick my snooter in the snow cuz I smelled something really good. Mom and dad thought it was "cute". Whatever!! I was simply being the supreme huntress that I am. After all, I did survive on my own for some unknown amount of time! Buuuut, then stuck my snooter in the snow and grass, and I came up with a critter in my mouth!!
A SNACK!!!! Oh my goodness, I was sooo excited!! I caught a vole!!! I was just seconds away from chewing my new found snack, when dad made me drop it!! He pulled me away from it, and I watched it crawl away, back under the long grass. I couldn't believe he didn't let me eat it!! I mean seriously, I found it, I caught it, I deserve to eat it! But nooooooooo.
Then mom was worried that it was hurt really bad and would crawl away and die a horrible death. That's what happened to a rabbit that Sam caught. Mom was not happy then either. Mom said dad should have let me go ahead and eat it, so it wouldn't have to suffer some poor agonizing death just like the rabbit. But, the more she thought about it, the more she realized that wouldnt' be a good idea since it might have caused some sort of illness or another tapeworm or something like that. Then she was glad dad made me drop it. Dogonally, I still would have liked to eat it, since I was the supreme hunter who caught it!
Oh well, it was still a good outing anyway. And, best of all, I had a great time sniffing all the cool smells, and checking out all the deer poo along the trails we were following. I guess that makes up for the loss of my snack. And, I was admired by some people I came across along the way.
