We’re back in the rat race again! Dog schools are opening up, and that means Mom can rent the barn hunt ring for us to practice. We did just that on Tuesday, and had so much fun! Barn hunt is a great sport for us scent hounds.
Olivia and I went, since we are the rat lovers. Our first runs were not so great, but then we remembered the game and really got into it. We had been away from the ring for almost three months, which is way too long.
Mom was very impressed with my love of the tubes this time. I wanted to get that rat tube, bite it, growl at it, try to get it away from Mom. This is something new for me.
Olivia had a beautiful head snap as she passed the hidden rat and then realized it. She circled around and alerted to Mom that a rat was there.
I love standing on my back feet, and it is fun to find a rat right in front of my nose. Hunting is very serious business.
Olivia is all business, but she is also funny while she is in her working state of mind. She knows there is a rat up above somewhere.
I was accused of being a lazy rat hunter with this shot. Sometimes lying on the straw, taking in all the scent is pleasant and relaxing!
Being back in the rat race works up a girl’s appetite. Looks like Olivia is thinking about some rat for dinner?
One last rat for the road. The hour time slot sure flew by fast. We had so much fun and can’t wait to compete again. We are hoping to be in a trial the end of June if it doesn’t get cancelled. After our long break, we are super thankful we get to practice once again!
