We have discovered that my Springer Spaniel, Bourbon, is a "mouser". How did we disvocer this? Weeeelllll....I was cleaning his kennel & he was unusually preoccupied with digging under his water bowl. (I use the term "bowl" loosely, as it's a 17 gallon wash tub....) Seems there were 2 little mice under there. Once I lifted the water bowl, they scurried out & Bourbon scooped them up, chomped on them & dropped them. ICK !!!! Once they stopped moving, he wasn't interested in them anymore....Bourbon has also been Turkey hunting.
We have a Turkey hen running around the area & since I feed the birds, she's come regularly to our yard. Drives the dogs nuts! Once I let them out, they are hot on her trail. I hope she does not lay anywhere, she'll tear those dogs up if they come near her nest.....
The only thing Briscoe hunts is a tennis ball.....
