In the Book of Dog, Chapter 4, verse 27.13, it is written: Thou shalt chase squirrels.
Jasper, Lilah and Tucker are true believers.
The thing is, I’m more of a live-and-let-live kind of person. And I don’t like the sound of terrified little animals.
Thus, every time I take the dogs outside in our fenced-in yard, they are leashed — and sometimes temporarily incarcerated behind our pool fence — until I can make sure the yard is cleared of living squeak toys. Then they are released to bark their frustration at the ones that got away.
I guess that makes me an unbeliever.
Do your pets hunt? What do you think about it?
