Lookie, Lookie What I Found!!!

Can you make out what I have in my mouth? Read on for the story...

Baby Rocket Dog and I are having a blast now that we are back in North Idaho. All we have to do is stand at the door and Mommy lets us outside to run around. What could be better?

I must tell you about this strange little thing I found in the woods on Monday. I was so proud of myself, having made this most excellent find. I came out of the woods to show it to my mom and daddy and Mommy said, "Hootie has something in his mouth!" Well, this is not unusual for me, as I have been very busy unearthing rawhide chews that Baby & I hid in the woods last year. Mom & Daddy always take them away from me. Something about them being black, slimy and moldy (just the way I like 'em!) and then they throw them in the trash!! Can you imagine? Anyway, back to my story. Mommy ran into the cabin to get her camera and started calling me to come to her and of course I wouldn't, cause I figured this was yet another thingy she would take away from me. Here's the video for you to see for yourself. (You might wish to turn down the volume, as she is screeching like a banshee at me.)

Great find huh? They tricked me into getting in the car, so I dropped the bun-bun on the seat and Dad grabbed me & Mommy got the bunny. Well, I got to go for a ride in the car with the snowshoe bunny over to one of the folk's friends house. This Jim guy is what my mom calls "nature man" and she knew he'd know what to do with the bunny. (NOW, I knew what to do with him, but they didn't quite like my idea.) Jim and his wife have 2 little bipeds and they said they'll take good care of the bunny so he can fend for himself and then they'll let him go in their woods. I wanted to play with him some more, but the folks figured he'd be better off a few miles away from me. Go figure. Meanwhile, BabyRD was the perfect angel, not getting into any trouble. PPffffffffttttt!!

I think Aggie will be proud of what a fine earth dog I am... and I haven't even been trained!! Well, I better go see what kind of mischief awaits me now.

Welshie Smooches, Hootie

ps-Baby will tell you about the Memorial Day parade and our friend, Rachel the chocolate Lab at a later date.

Oh Hootie - what a good hunting dog you are! I'm glad you didn't crunch the bunny, he's pretty cute. Looks like great fun in the wild woods - make sure you don't bring home a snake or anything like that.


Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Hootie, You were so kind not to crush the bunbun with your terrier jaws. Our mom just doesn't want us to bring home any dead birds! But we never get off leash unless we sneak.

Have fun at your cabin - we miss seeing you.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java


Wow a real live stuffie! I can't believe it! Good work Baby rocket. Agatha would be very proud.

That's fun just running out your door! Have fun for me!

Sally said...

Well done you - you were very gentle - you didn't de-squeak it! I understand why you didn't want to give it up - it was so cute! And edible...

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

You find yourself a pet and the humans take it away from you, so unfair.

Have a great weekend.

Crikey Hootie, you are so good not to have hurt that baby rabbit. It would have been a different story if it was in my mouth......

Martha Basset said...

Oh Hootie
What fun - and you got your mum to shriek! Excellent!
These humans think it is fun when we chase the bunnies and the squirrels but when we catch them they get all upset and want to save them.......
We will never understand the human perspective!
Glad you are having such a great time - good hunting Hootie!
love and kisses

I'm glad you didn't hurt the bunny Hootie. I like bunnies. My brother Brandon is a bunny.
I hope you have a pawsome weekend.
Big licks to you
PeeS - I got your postcard yesterday. The walk went well. I will be posting about it again in the next week or so.

Maggie and Mitch said...

You must be so proud of yourself, Hootie! What a shame you didn't get to keep the bunny! We're glad to see that he's okay and just has Welshie slime all over his head!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Great job, Hootie! We're glad you didn't hurt the bunny, though. He's very cute! Next time, get a skwerrel...they're very tasty. Watch out, though...they fight back!

Eric said...

Smart boy Hootie!! Catching a real live bunnie and not even destuffing him... I only managed to find a dead one and my Mom sounded a LOT like yours.

I have been able to be around for a while so I had a good time reading all your travelling adventures and went and looked at your Aunties wool. Hmm I'm thinking about wrist warmers made from my furs for Mom to knit for herself...heeheee ..!!!

Looks like all your adventures were a blast, great to catch up and see what you got up to.

Wiry wags n kissies, Eric xxx

Molly and Taffy said...

Nice little bunny Hootie. Don't think it would have fared so well if Molly had caught it.


Shellmo said...

Hootie - you definitely like to make friends!! LOL!

P.S. You'll have a new buddy visiting you in a few weeks - we're still trying to think of a name for her. She hopes you & Baby Rocket like Bernese Mtn Dogs! She needs you to show her the ropes!

tula said...

Hey Hootie-- Your mom is a hoot! At least you got to go on a car ride with the little fuzzball. If there's one wabbit, there's got to be more, right?! Bet you'll be very biddy biddy in the backyard.

have a blast bunny hunting!

**stop by my blog for a special award!

toodles, tula

Jen said...

Oh Hootie my hubby would like to take you to the woods with him. ha!
My Amy found a nest one year, she gently brought 3 of them to the back door and would not leave their side all the days we tried to nurse them. unfortunatley they did not make it. ;( She meant well.

We woulda been dog meat if we had done that...totally...

Mumsie has this soft spot for bunnies...probably a good thing you didn't harm the little critter...

We're glad nature man has him to help out!!!!!

You guys really need to hang out in our yard and help guard...some much little time...


Sherry said...

Good job, Hootie, a natural hunter!

Moco said...

I don't know Hootie. That looks like something Edgar the cat would get a grip on. We are happy that the parents were able to save it.

Hi Woo, Hootie,

I'm proud of you for giving up the bunny in the nick of time! Nice restraint...sort of! ;)

Reuben said...

Hey hootie your mom sounds just like mine, ya know? Always taking the good stuff just as I am about to scarf it down. But wow, a LIVE bunny. Last week I actually did eat a bunny but it was already dead, therefore very easy to catch. Smelled really great, too.

Stanley said...

Hootie Boy!

You are one AireMazing Welshie boy, and yet so gentle with the baby bunny. I'm surprised he survived long enough to be plopped onto the carseat, but I'm kinda glad he did. I'm partial to little fuzzy creatures.

My girl said that her sweet Aireboy, Bert, who she thought would never hurt a fly, found a whole warren of baby bunnies in the yard one day. They way my girl found out? She heard them each cry as Bert ate them. She said she never quite looked at Bert the same way again (though she loved the stuffin' out of him).

Thanks for your post card and for Stella's birthday card! We can't believe you remembered her birthday while you were traveling cross country!

I'm going to catch up now on all of your earlier posts!

Goober love & smooches,

Lucia said...

Ciao BRD and Hootie!

Awwww, Hootie, I know what you were doing! Since your real name is Hairy Houdini and Houdini is a magician and magicians pull rabbits from their hats ... well, you were just practicing your magic act!

I'm glad you were sweet to the bunny, mio caro amico, and am happy that you and BRD are doing so well in your summer home! It looks magnifico there!

Tanti baci!

Mango said...

Hootie! I can't believe you found a live stuffie! You certainly made a quick escape when your mom started her screeching.
