As Kiera grew that first year, I taught her to catch the Frisbee in mid-air, sit and catch her ball, sit and "wave" to people...that was one of her favorites. The kids at the trail would love it when we did that one for them! I had also taught Kiera to "dig it up" on command and believe it or not, she would help me dig when I needed to remove a rock buried beneath the earth's surface or when I was planting perennials.
Anyway, back to the story. It was fall and one day, we were out in the yard playing as usual and once playtime was over, it was time for me to begin my yard work.
Meanwhile, I was busy doing something and when I looked up, I saw her down at our shed. We had our wood stashed there all ready for the up coming winter. And, as you know, mice love wood sheds!
It just so happened that Kiera loved to chase, catch anything that moved. Her antics kept us laughing for days. So, she's down at the shed, bobbing and weaving, trying to catch something. A few moments later, when I called, "Kiera, come...bring it" I really didn't notice what was in her mouth until she got closer.
I just assumed that she had caught another mouse, or chipmunk, or possibly a mole and was "bringing it" in that ever so delicate, soft mouth that Pointers have.
To my surprise, as she got close to me and I saw something sticking out of her mouth. "What the heck?" I thought.
It was then that I laughed so hard, I thought I would split my gut!!!
Oh, she had something in her mouth alright!
The mouse's tail was stuck between her lower teeth just like dental floss!
P.S. Today is Tuesday and don't forget that Angela hosts her Show & Tail @ WVTreasures. I'm linking up and you should to. It's great fun...especially to read all the "tails"!!...:)
