Leaf hunting is one of Bailie’s favorite pastimes. She started chasing leaves down the street as a young puppy and has never outgrown her love of it. Leaves are great, but she adores the chase of anything moving in front of her, thus her love of FastCAT as a sport. FastCat is simply chasing a lure, and she is crazy about it. When she sees an object move, she first freezes and you can see in her body position, she is up to something.
Next she takes off after the “prey”. See how she is even smiling as she begins her chase. Olivia is completely aloof as to what is going on. She does enjoy the chase too, but not like Bailie.
With the wind blowing strong over the icy snow, Bailie even manages to restyle her hair during the hot pursuit. How does the girl do it? Notice her complete focus on the little leaf in front of her.
She realizes it is not alive, and not food, so she proceeds to hunt for her next victim, another poor leaf.
It doesn’t take long, and Bailie has another fascinating, blowing, leaf in sight.
With twenty mile an hour wind gusts, leaves move fast. Bailie wastes no time, and heads off on the chase!
Mom says we all hunt a bit like cats. We are calm and quite, stalk our prey, and then bam! Once we are on it, we pounce like a cat.
Time for some more speed as that tricky leaf is getting away!
Bailie is closing in on the unsuspecting leaf. Her landing gear, aka paws, are preparing to hit the ground to slow her down.
This is it, the moment she has been waiting for in the leaf hunt. The leaf has been captured, and actually smashed into the snow with her front paw.
Bailie is the most immature of the three of us. She is an eternal puppy, but we love her for that. Her curiosity is always fun to watch, and she just enjoys being a silly girl most of the time. Does your dog participate in the fine art of leaf hunting?
