On The Hunt

Tail wags, pups and kits! It's me, Stormy! As my Zim puppy said yesterday, we ran across a huge, fluffy invader on our walk the morning prior! It was very exciting! We were up in the undeveloped area; we've seen everything up there from hawks to quail to deer to coyotes to kit-cats ... but never one of THESE! It was furry and it was fast! I saw it first and told Dave to go check it out!

Dave! Look! How cool!

Hey... It's black, fuzzy, and fast ... but it's not a Sibe like us!

Here's an artsy look of it, framed by our shadows. It's a Wooly Bear! Did you all see the one on our friend Ari's blog? Aren't they cool? And fluffy.

The redheads wanted to check it out, too. Here they are:

Dad! Dad! It's a bug! Let me get closer!

Look at the concentration on their faces!

Zimmie REALLY wanted to get at it. Check out the cat-like paw stretch!

Can't... quite... reach...
OK, bug... maybe not today... but I'll get you one day!

When Huffle gets here, she'll have to come on our morning road march with us. I'm sure she knows what to do with a Wooly Bear!

Tail wags,

  6. Mommy says that I am an excellent bug chaser - my jaws snap while trying to get the flying ones. I protect her frum the buggies - ERRRRR!

  7. Yep, I have seen those on my walkies but haven't been able to snag one yet. Mom is too quick. But woo should have seen what I grabbed tonight. Too bad Mom didn't have her camera. AND she made me leave it. I will tell woo what it was tomorrow AFTER woo see my post tomorrow - it will be in the PEE ESS part.

  11. Ooooh, we love the wooly bears but management won't let us near them. They won't let us near a lot of things like that - sigh. As a daily reader, though, we wanted to say thanks with an award to the entire A04, so check our blog for it!

  12. I wonder if the wooly's shed?

  13. Wooos, wooly bears are so cool!
    We're getting lots of khaterpillers in our yard lately, but no wooly bears. Humom likes those, she thinks they're cute. (but not as cute as us!)

    woos & a-rooos,
    Star & Jack a-roo

  14. We have those at our house! Mom thinks they're just too cute!

    Love ya lots,
