Slash has been sporting his harness and leash outside at times lately, mainly because the campground is really busy now.
Frog leg pose: pelvis flat to the ground with legs flared out. Notice how his back paws are positioned for the ability to pounce.
He also has a strong desire to hunt mice on the hill behind us so it helps keep him in check.
Here is a mouse tunnel exit which is a death trap since Slash spends a lot of his time outside close by.
Too bad Slash’s harness is not as cool as Mr. Bowie’s but it works when the situation calls for it which is not all the time.
This is his favorite place to perch and wait. A big flat rock on the edge of the hill.
He knows he is wearing his harness and I’m holding the other end but he zones in on locating the mouse and positioning himself for the pounce anyway.
He determines that the mouse is approaching the death trap exit so he repositions and waits for it to appear.
A more practical stance for pouncing. The mouse appears at the tunnel exit!
Slash was so pleased. The mouse gave no indication that he knew we were there.
Either a blind mouse or Slash and I were doing a good job of being still and quiet, who knows. I kept moving my phone closer to him trying to capture a better photo.
I think mice are cute. I think Slash only sees them as needing to be dead.
Just another day in the life of Slash “The Slasher”. The mouse surveillance continues.
