Monday Mischief: My Troublemakers

Off to make some trouble together.

Off hunting trouble

Koira has been seriously in squirrel and rodent hunting mode at the park ever since a large mole/vole creature ran almost directly over her feet, giving her a false sense of skill in the rodent hunting world. Unfortunately for her (and fortunately for the squirrels and other rodents) the squirrels can disappear up trees and the rodents into holes in the ground or massive stands of thorned blackberry bushes.

Darn squirrel disappeared up the trees

Pallo is a bit disappointed in her constant hunting and tries to get her to romp and play with him instead. His most successful way of getting that to happen is to wander off (like down to the river) and wait for me to call him. When I call him, Koira tends to take off looking for him or lay in wait to pounce on him once he comes barreling back.

Koira's gonna get you!

Ultimately, this pair of troublemakers ends up tired and soggy after a walk filled with romping and squirrel hunting.
