M&M Monday

Yesterday was a GORGEOUS spring day. Millie wanted to go out and she stayed out for a bit of the afternoon.


Whatchya lookin' at, Mil? 

Later, after Millie was back in, Maggie wanted to go out. She heads down the ramp, but Tabby Bobcat stops in front of her and SITS. So Maggie stands waiting . . .

Whatchya lookin' at, Mil?
I followed Millie's line of sight and there was a dead s-q-u-i-r-r-e-l  just under the front of my car. I went and put on a rubber glove and picked it up and chucked it into the woods. It looked like there were a couple bite wounds, so I don't know if it was Millie, or not. Poor thing. There are just some things I'm not taking a picture of! Temple Grandin talks about how all dogs have the kill instinct where they shake an animal like a squirrel or ground hog.  Anyway, back to Maggie . . .
Maggie heads back up the ramp . . .

. . . so of course, Millie makes herself comfortable at the top of the ramp.

Millie pretends not to notice Maggie . . .

It seems we're at an impasse.
