Once in a while, we are gifted by the gods, we are gifted a little bit of heaven it has four legs, a waggy tail and a cold wet nose with personality exploding at the seams ready to love you to their last breath and beat of the heart.
The Dog they come in all shapes, sizes, colors and have their individual’s personality that makes us love them even more. I happen to have the weirdest dog but I love her.
I got Tinkabella almost two years ago, she is a black and white foxy and by far the weirdest dog I have ever meet and owned. You would be standing in the kitchen or living room or anywhere really, and she will come and launch herself at your feet and slide over them or just come up and flop on your feet ” The Tink Flop” lay on her back and just stare up at you with her mouth open and tongue out the side with a “what ya doing” expression. She loves to just lay on her back around the house too in different place’s threw out the house you walk in and she outside the bathroom, or in the kitchen, living room ANYWHERE just laying around acting dead, and she tries to trip you up, I went to the loo and it was 3 in the morning and I turn off the lights and I literally trip over her cause she right there outside the door waiting… playing dead at 3 in the morning!!
She just lays around on her back like a weirdo playing dead. She is way to smart for her own good if you have money in your pocket and you happen to get up and say the magic word in our house “are you ready” she runs out by the car all ready to go, then you have to try and catch her, but she learned to stay home now which is good we just tell her to stay home and look after the old dog which is our 18-year-old foxy gypsy and she goes to find gypsy and sits alongside her. Don’t even get me started on bath time WW3!
Tink & The Rat
For the past 3 weeks, she has been hunting around the veggie garden looking for this rat now I haven’t seen this rat but she knows there is a rat there, last week I’m outside having my morning tea when she is rummaging about in dads veggie garden. She’s making a lot of sounds so this got the cat to come along to see what was happing, Tink must have flushed the rat from where it was hiding and the cat saw this and now joined in the hunt for the rat. Tink and the cat have teamed up to get this rat now they were to busy looking on the ground and didn’t see it run up the tree and hide in the bird feed plate above them, this was the first time I saw it and it was huge!! the size of large rock melon, so I got the cat and showed her the rat she locks on to it, I put her down and she started making this weird chatty sound, Tink come out of the bush and she knows straight away the cats found it
Tink is up on her hind legs trying to find it and the cat launches up the tree and the rat goes flying off the bird feeder and into the grapevine !!! and like a flash of light tink driving in and is in full hunt mode, she wants this rat the game is on! the cats in the bush with tink they really want this rat its been annoying them for the last 3 weeks.
Now my beloved dog gypsy she is getting old she’s deaf and her sight is around 40% she just comes doodling along has no idea what’s going on she’s just happy in her own world, so I’m patting her we having a little cuddle, she puts her nose to the air she’s found the scent! and she’s away! she finds the others and now she’s joined in on the rat hunt. so now 3 of them are all hyped up in hunting mode… dad walks out and he asked what all the crazy sounds are about I said they found the rat he rolls his eyes and walks to feed the birds.
So this has been my pets high light at home. They haven’t found the rat yet, so it’s an ongoing hunt iv seen the rat 5 times since then and so have the hunters the cat seems to do night shift while the dogs do the day shift when they finally do get this rat they will be so bored and try to find something else to hunt. There does happen to be male pheasant around the yard, they have attempted to get him, he’s to fast but that doesn’t stop them from trying….. till then
