Dude is a Stud!

The second Saturday of the month is Legacy Boxer Rescue adoption fair day! To me that means a visit to Grammy and my cousin Dude (the tiny dachshound at the top right of the photo) . I really enjoy chasing squirrels, pooping in the ivy, and barking at the ancient dog across the alley, even though I'd rather the moms stay home with me. Today was especially fun, because Dude told me a story! Wanna hear?

Dude was monitoring the back yard one day while Grammy got ready to go to her bridge game. With his eagle eyes, he saw a giant rat jump into the hose caddy. He sprung into action, alerting both Grammy and the rat of the trespass. Grammy came out of the house - she understood the problem right away! This was not the first rat this pair had handled.

Grammy tipped over the caddy and banged on the side, but no rat appeared. She had a moment of doubt and went back in the house. Dude persisted. Grammy watched from inside, and suddenly saw a rat tail poke out of the caddy. Before she could get back outside, Dude grabbed and killed the intruder and rushed his prize through the doggy door to enjoy it in the climate controlled bedroom. He went under Grammy's bed (she had taken away his first conquest).

He enjoyed his moment of glory for a while and then went back outside to check for more rodents. Grammy slammed shut the doggy door behind him. He watched helplessly and in horror as Grammy crawled under her bed with a baggy and a flashlight. She came out with his beloved and hard-won trophy wrapped in plastic. Betrayed by his own vigilance!

Long story short - Dude is a stud!

Hey Dude! You da man .. errr ... dog!

Cubby you have a very handsome cousin! And so talented. We caught a squirrel once but suffered the same fate when Mom took it away. We have tried to catch a possum but it wouldn't come down from the fence. We bet the whole neighborhood would be safe if Dude shared one with us!

Chani caught a huge rat once and shook it till it died. Dad had to take it away from her though, he was afraid she'd try to eat it!
