    Default Copy Cat

    I just have to share this, it made me laugh so hard I almost piddled myself.

    Dudley is the official patrol dog in our house, the least little critter he see's outside usually being a CAT or a SQUIRREL (No Mouses) he goes absolutely nuts.

    This morning here is a little black squirrel sitting on the fence, he is gathering his food for the winter so he is making quite a lot of trips back and forth. Anyway my Dudley was all snuggled in his crate, which is no where near the back window. He comes barging out of that crate ran to the window hit his head, Oops forgot to stop to have Mommy open the door, here is my poor Darby doing everything that Dudley does but has no clue what is going on.

    So I first try to calm Dudley down as he really really does get very very excited over these little squirrels, the way he see's it they just are not allowed in our backyard. Darby is still going nuts as Dudley would not settle, so I just let them out. Darby followed Dudley and I swear he did ever single thing that his Big Brother did.

    Dudley would jump up, then instantly Darby would jump up. Dudley is still barking his head off so of course Darby has to do the same.

    He patrolled that backyard for at least a half an hour waiting and watching for the petrified little squirrel to come back. Darby doing the exact same, of course my batteries are not charged or I would of snapped some pictures it was so funny.

    Darby looks up to Dudley so much, I just had to share my morning smile with you this boy is crazy and so is the little one.

    Wee Bugger I took them both to the park last night, yes the grass was wet but I went anyway. They were filthy, straight into the tub, and this morning they were in the dirty again.

    for listening to my story, he has now settled down.

    All that excitement tired him out.

    LOL Linda,

    Darby is such a funny little guy. He cracks me up, seriously.

    I would have loved to see that. Dudley is funny. He kind of reminds me of Kosmo. This morning I was in the bedroom and I sat down on the bed and of course my big bum made the bed squeak as I sat down and I thought Kosmo was going to kill something!! He was running around barking like a chicken with his head cut off.. so of course I bounced a bit more..

    Next time keep your camera charged !

    Awww, little Darby wants to be just like his big brother Dudley! How adorable!! It surprises me how much these little dogs retain their hunting spaniel instincts. They have to protect the yard from all the critters don't they? Even to the point of becoming little nutballs in the process, but we love them anyway don't we? They sure do keep us entertained.
    Thanks for the morning laugh, your two guys are full of fun.

    That is just tooooo cuute!! Dudley is such a strapping lad and I would love to see his reaction if he ever caught one.

    Does Dudley point? Wesley is quite the little squirrel hunter too and lowers his body and lifts his front foot like a pointer. Then he creeps like a tiger.

    I have a funny story similar to yours:

    My cat Bacon and Wesley hunt together (not as a team, but they just happen to both be interested in the same prey...squirrels). They were both crouched down in the grass across the yard and spotted their victims. There were two little squirrels in the bird feeder and Bacon lunged for them and of course Wesley followed. Bacon, for the first time in his life ACTUALLY caught the squirrel!!! Wesley went balistic, Bacon was so scared that he caught it that he threw it up into the air!! The squirrel ran up the tree to the tippy top and the other squirrel (who was hiding out) jumped right over Wesley and Bacon's heads and ran to the back fence. Bacon, Wesley went chasing after the squirrel, Stewie my shih tzu got so mad that he wasn't invited in the fun that he went chasing after them growling and nipping their heels and Cody was running for the sake of running!! It looked like such a cartoon with all four of my critters chasing one another!!

    to add faces to this story, look under "and friends" and you will see my super efficiant squirrel catching team

    Too funny. I can just see Darby following along and doing everything his big brother does. What a goofy little boy.

    What great stories. Wish we had squirrels around our backyard for Tandie to chase, so she might leave poor Flea alone. She's still mad to chase her at every opportunity (but luckily she hasn't been given any of those in the last few days )

    What entertainment these pups provide! It is funny to watch the younger ones mimic their elders!

    Hope Dudley has recovered from hitting his head while on Squirrel Patrol!
