I met my first squawker at our FastCAT trials back in May. We have heard about them, but didn’t know what they do or how they work. For me, it is amazing and I get super crazy. Thankfully, Twin Eyes Photography captured some of my moments in my first run with this furry thing. It also happened to be my FCAT Title run. We purchased the photos for our own use. Hopefully you will enjoy them. This first photo is me leaving the start line. Can you see the crazy amazement in my eyes as I see this animal in front of me?
And, I’m off! The furry guy tied to the lure is looking right at me which makes me even more wild. Sometimes he makes a squawking noise too!
I’m in full and long form as I race down the hundred yard track trying to capture the little varmint!
My ears flop along as I run after the squawker. He better watch out or I will catch him. I catch animals in the yard that run fast all the time.
Humans think it is cute, but for me it is a serious hunting run! Did you know when I run FastCAT I use my GBGV hunting call most of the way down the track? People think it is funny, but it is my instinct coming out.
I’m closing in on the furry critter! We are eye to eye, and I am determined to be the winner of this match.
Ha! Gotcha, you furry little varmint! What a great hunt, and I got to do it again half an hour later. If anyone asks me if I would like a squawker, my answer will be, “YES, please!” These things put a super fun sport right over the top of the fun meter in my hound opinion.
In case you are wondering, the normal lure is also attached to the line which is why you see the white plastic bag in some of the shots. Some dogs prefer to have that instead.
My GBGV Life is happy, so we’re joining Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday!
