And thanks to all who have given good wishes for Violet and Monkey. It looks like we will be taking Violet to the vet tomorrow. I was up with kidney stone pain last night and heard her whimpering in her sleep. This morning she didn't eat and her back end is buckling more than ever.
I hope Violet and the Vet can work things out. As for Monkey, she would be the one to get a false positive...almost used one of her 9 lives.

DH and I took the nearly fully-recovered Beagle on a half long walk (those ugly Franken-staples, yuck), and walked by a subdivision house that keeps racing greyhounds in separate little kennels outside. When they hear us coming, they start to bark and whine. Of course I have to go and pat the girls. They are the sweetest dogs, even though Beagle doesn't think so and refuses to go see them. Today, instead of two, there were three greyhounds, so I had to introduce myself to the newcomers and pat and talk to all. Wish I had a camera with me, one was a brindle, and another was a gorgeous three layered shades of gray and black. And then there was the sweet little tan girl.

Beagle got to eat a part of a formerly live mole. DH had her out on her retractable leash, and she dug a couple times in one spot, and came up with a live mole! By the time DH got to her, she'd already consumed part of it. DH was horrified, thinking she'd get sick. I don't think so. I'm proud of my little hunter, apparently we haven't been using her to the best of her capabilities. I have a mole hunter! And to think, all those wasted years using mole traps.

I hope your neighbours don't use poison on moles in their yards. That would be my only concern.

And yay mighty hunter Beagle!

My mom moved in with my sister for a couple of months, and my mom's little Yorkie went rat hunting. :) Our cute little Brianna nabbed about 3 or 4 rats. Terriers used to be used on ships as "ratters" especially Jack Russell's and Rat Terriers.

My nephew called her "killer"!

And Brianna said they were delicious! What an adorable little killer!

Beagle says thank you, Taxy and PF. She was much more efficient than a former neighbor's Newfoundlander. Bear always got his moles, but he left huge craters in the yard.
