Timmy was never a hunter. I always laughed at the dogs in our afternoon walking group when they would lunge at squirrels and birds. Timmy was clueless. This was all before we started going to the beach where he discovered the bunnies. Timmy is now the fiercest hunter and when we're home he tries to catch the chipmunks and squirrels (darn little legs ) but we don't have any bunnies. Yesterday we were out back, he was on his retractable leash, and he went to chase what I thought was a bunny, nope a ground hog. I know from my previous cat experience they are mean and brazen, but what's a girl to do? We've had ground hogs, really bad in the past, but my neighbor has helped to eleviate these critters for the past few years. I don't ask how they just disappeared, I know he's not using poison though. Guess I'll need to check in and hint that I saw a ground hog. Fences don't even help keep them away since they are borrowers so I guess I'll just have to keep a vigilant eye out. Good thing I'm heading to the beach for the next few weeks to finish off the summer.
Love groundhogs. How is you spring forecaster Pensatoke Phil? We have Wiarton Willy near hear.
