Sunday Stalking Story

Since my Mum did not have the camera with her when we went owtside, this is going to be a story with no pictures. BOOOOOOO.

Yesterday I got to go outside on the leesh again. This doesn't happen neerly as offen as it should, but the peepul say that it is becuz when they do take me out on the leesh I try to run out the door by myself when I'm not supposed to. I just get excited and want to keep going outside, I don't think about the kyotees until they remind me.
Anywayz, so I was outside on the leesh. I ate a bunch of grass that was pretty tasty, until I started to gag on it. I roamed arownd, saw sum berds flying over me and herd annoying barking dogz and stuff.
And then I saw it... the grass moved in a spot on the lawn, I stopped to look at it. Mum wuz holding the leesh and my Wrestlin Buddy (the man as I have decided to call him, or the WB for short) was sittin in a chare. They saw me lookin at sumthin. I started to sneek up on it, becuz I wanted to find out what it was. My mum was followin with the leesh in her hand, she was trying to be quiet and sneeky like I was but I reely didn't think it was gonna work (silly Mum). Finally the WB told her to let go and see what I did, I was vary reeleeved at that. I sneeked up reely slow and stealthy like and then it poked it's head out of the hole in the grownd. I stopped and stared at it, it stopped and stared back, efurrybody just stopped. Then I pounced on it!! Too bad it went right down the hole again, I couldn't get it, I didn't get to play with it or whap it or bite it or nuthin. I was kinda sad about the result of my stalking. I tried to reach in the hole and bring it out, but it was gone, it was one of these, it's a vole:
They run around underground and they dig giant dert mounds in our yard, they reely bug the peepul, they wished that I had got it. They actually caught one in a bukit one day and took him to the forest and let him go, they have pictures of that one, but I can't find which files they are in on the compyooter, they may still be on the other camera.
That is my story of my stalking adventure. I'll get him next time. Watch out vole!!!

Willie, given the leesh problems and the noisy Mom, it is not surprisin ya couldnt quite catch the vole.

But fer yer good stalkin efforts, I am awardin ya "hunter-in-training" status. It doesn't mean ya caught anything yet, but it does mean yer on the right track and learning the skills ya need!

When ya catch one, I will send an award ya can post! Keep up the good werk...

A vole?! Wow! How very exciting for you!

Wow, what an exciting story! Please stay AWAY from the coyotes! We had to look this up:

A vole is a small rodent resembling a mouse but with a stouter body, a shorter hairy tail, a slightly rounder head, and smaller ears and eyes. There are approximately 70 species of voles; they are sometimes known as meadow mice or field mice in North America. The voles, together with the lemmings and the muskrats, form the subfamily Arvicolinae.
