    A better Mouse Trap?

    Or maybe better a better mouse catcher. "Bear" a 3 year old Lab we rescued, walks beside me as I bushhog and waits on me to flush out a field rat etc. He rarely ever lets one get away if they play fair (not go into an underground burrow etc). He will follow along for hours and when he catches one, is a little sadistic in that it's usually not a quick death for the victim. Bear will throw it in the air, let it loose and catch it again before leaving it behind to die a slow death.

    Any one else have a mouse catcher in the family?

    That's pretty funny! I guess there's more than one way to catch a mouse!

    My Boykin Spaniel catches mice and small rabbits. More often than not he brings them to me. He eats a few if he thinks I dont know he has one. I try not to let him eat them as it tends to make him get sick in the house.

    Three years later, Bear is still at it. Like myself, a little slower now but he still enjoys catching the rats. I couldn't get the pictures to upload correctly, maybe some of the mods can correct the orientation.

    Got it.

    No mousers around here like Bear. There are some cats that I see roaming the fields every so often, and hawks watching from the fenceposts are common. Even had one leave me the remnants of a mouse on a gate post.

    Oftentimes the hawks will come in close when I am mowing pastures, and they swoop down and get the field mice as the Brush hog flushes them. Pretty cool. And it is amazing just how close they will fly in and hang out when I am on the equipment.
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride!

    I see the little vermon run when I brush hog, but no hawks come to help. I do see a lot of swallows and dragonflies after the insects I stir up.

    Was working in the basement last night (hanging doors, doing trim, etc.) and the wife says "oh no, I think the cat has a mouse cornered - do something."

    So I grabbed a beer and watched the cat do her thing. Gave her a treat afterward when she was done too. Good kitty.

    Have a cat that keeps our barn free of rats and mice. Now if I could just train her to keep the spiders and wasps out that would be great.
