Yesterday, we piled into the car and headed out on a family rat hunting excursion. Back in September, we all went to a trial together for one day, but we have never all gone to a practice together. Mom says it is a lot of work and wears her out having three of us to hide rats for. Nevertheless, she thought it would be fun, so off we went.
Olivia and Bailie are both in Senior which means they have to find four rats every search. Mom was very busy hiding four rats for them, then waiting for them to find them all, and repeating it again and again. In the above photo, Olivia found a rat, can you tell?
Even Bailie was excited to be along and to look for some rats. Mom is trying to decide if she wants to try taking Bailie to the upcoming trial or not. While she did some good searching, she didn’t have as much enthusiasm as we had hoped. Whether or not she comes with us for a day or not is still hanging in the air.
I was my usual busy self. Once I am let loose, I prance around and check every inch of the area looking for those rats. I also enjoy biting at the tubes when I find one with a rat. Being in masters means I have to find one to five rats, but we don’t know how many. Mom has to figure out when I have found them all.
Bailie decided to sit down in the midst of the straw bails. She is such a silly girl sometimes!
Mom was a bit worried about me because sometimes I like to find the rats and not tell her about them. I did this a few times. She said that is a bad thing because we are a team. We will see how I feel when we are at the trial. Sometimes trials make for better hunting than practice.
Finally, we leave you with Olivia on top of all the bales looking out over the bin that has the rats in it. She knows where the rats are! She loves to air scent, as you can tell. We’re thankful we get to practice our sports even with all the pandemic stuff going on. It was a super fun time, and we managed to wear Mom out for a change!
