A boy that lives up to his name

    My BRAT boy, Hunter, lived up to his name this morning!

    I had to go out to my shop to grab a package of halibut out of my freezer for my boss (bribe to keep my job!!!:rolleyes:).

    I have 3 of the big Rubbermaid tubs full of kindling. Hunter was all in one of them, sniffing & going crazy. I know I have rats in my yard/woodpile/shop because I find their droppings. I don't mind as long as they don't eat my stuff and they stay out of my house!!!

    Anyway, I was going to be late for work and couldn't get Hunter out of my shop! I thought I heard a little scratching from inside the bin he was investigating so I had a brilliant solution. Drag it out to the yard, so I could lock up my shop and go off to work! The minute I started to drag it a rat hopped out! Almost on my foot! Of course, I screamed like a girl (because I am one) and it ran between 2 bins and between 2 basenjis.

    The basenjis didn't see it run but Hunter tracked it down and ran where it had run off to. He didn't catch it but at least it's out of my kindling box.

    Extra treats before running out the door to work for being a good "Hunter"!!!:)

  • My first Basenji in the mid 80s caught a big rat and was shaking it around, let it fly and hit me in the leg with it. She quickly ran over and finished it off. She used to flush them out of my garage too. I live near a shipping port and they were coming off the ships.

    Maybe God made rats for basenjis? :rolleyes:
