You're probably wondering why I'm showing you a picture of an empty bucket.  This is the duck food bucket. 
If mom's camera wasn't so slow, you would have seen the cute little mousey in there!  He was after the crumbs. 
 Can you see his tail hanging out of my mouth?  I'm the best mouser you will ever meet.  I will put any kitty to shame!
 No dad, I don't have anything in my mouth - honest!
 Dad stole my mouse but not before I got him all slimy and gooey and gookey.   
 Mom really wanted to introduce Molly to a mouse but the ding-a-ling showed him to me first.  Molly never saw the mouse.
OOPS - sorry, Molly.
The next one will be yours, okay?!

So until next time..............

Love ya lots,

Well done Mitch, nice work. You will, no doubt, train Molly to be a good mouser too.

Eileen said...

That is an eeeek. I'm glad mom's camera is slow ! I HATE those meeces to pieces :-)

Princess Patches said...

Great job, Mitchy Boy! Did you make the mousy dead...or just slobbery? Molly will get her turn now that you have taught her proper mousy catching!


Unknown said...

Ewwwwwww!!! I can't believe my eyes!!!


Sally Ann and Andy said...

Isn't Mousing fun!

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

All Mommy can say is ... "Thank Dog" she finished eating her sandwich before reading your blog post!!! Ewwww!

Cowspotdog said...

I can't believe you didn't chomp the little certainly wouldn't have had any second chances around here - great job on catching it though Mitch

KB said...

Mitch - Can you come live with us for a while? We have a "mouse issue", although it's almost over. There are still just a few for you to catch!

And, we'd love to meet you :)

Reuben said...

Good job, Mitch! What a fierce and brave hunter you is. If Molly wants her own mouses, she will has to be faster!


My Dog Sam - Ruptured Disk said...

Great score Mitch. Maybe next time Molly.

Corbin said...

BOL! Mom's got all creepy crawly skin after reading about the mousey! Good job!

The Army of Four said...

Do you have your own catch and release program for mousies, Mitch?

Amber DaWeenie said...

Oh nose....Me being a weenie dog and all, me should be a great hunter like you. Butt....sorry to say me would turn and run da other way if me saw a mousie!

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Mom is saying something about how you need to come visit us; we have tons of mousies, and apparently we aren't "good mousers". Whatever. But she's glad to see SOMEONE is a good mouser! ;-)

Mollie said...

You've got some hummmm!
Big cuddles
xx P's Can't wait to tell "Furball"
he couldn't catch a cold! BOW!

Millie and Walter said...

Mitch, I can't believe you just kept that mouse in your mouth and didn't swallow it. Didn't it tickle crawling around in your mouth?


Unknown said...

Oh wow. Do they taste good?

Sue said...

Wow Mitch, did that mouse wiggle around in your mouth? Morgan likes to swallow lizards and says they wiggle all the way down. Mom says "yuck".

Unknown said...

EEEEEK is right! We can't believe you just gulped up that thing like that and held him in there so long. Mitch, you are fearless!
We love chasing gophers, squirrels, and mice but I'm not sure we'd have the guts to do what you did if we ever caught one!

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Well done Mitch! We're good mousers, too. You were good to let your dad steal it. We usually run.

Molly will probably get her chance soon.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella &Roxy

P.S. Did you really call your mom a ding a ling? lol

Gus said...

good job Mitch! But remember, you have to help Molly learn some skills, so next time hold back until she has a sniff, OK?


Unknown said...

Oh my goodness, Mitch!! My human went a bit green when we read the part about the little mousie's tail poking out of your mouth!! (she has a real soft spot for rodents...yes, she even likes rats!) You didn't really catch it - did you?? Gosh, you must be a very fast doggie!!

I am ashamed to confess that when we lived in Brisbane and had a bad mouse problem, they used to come out every night to chew through boxes & bags in our pantry and once my humans put down some flour to see where they were coming from - and in the morning, they found little mouse tracks leading right past my bed, to the kitchen! Yes, I had slept right though with mice walking right past under my nose!!!! My human said I am laziest, most useless doggie in the world! ;-)

Stardust said...

ARE YOU SERIOUS MITCH?!?! Did you really get the mouse?? Is that a tail Mitch?

Ok, good work.. I didn't know that puppies are good mousers too.

Now Molly is looking so smart in the last picture.
