There are two things Trixie doesn't allow in the yard.....lizards and squirrels. She chases squirrels up trees and sits all day looking up, waiting (they have long gone, jumped tree to tree, but she misses that action). Lizards are another story. That girl is fast and if she sees one they are in big trouble. She has learned that they run under the nearest rock so she immediately takes them to the middle of the yard where there is no cover to run under..
She proceeds to paw them, and the rest isn't pretty. She's a hunter, what can I say?
She patrols under every bush and rock in search of her prey....she sniffs them out and believe me she has a keen sense of smell.
She was sniffing out the flowers in this picture, very alert, look at that tail. lol
It's funny though, if I go in the house she stops hunting and wants to come inside. I think she likes the thought of having backup in case she needs it.
She's my buddy.....unconditional love......
