  2. Hey Oz...Momz was 'splainin this to me just the other day when i was in my cave & she wanted me to come out...Did you know we're s'posed to be chasing sumthing called 'vermin' down into holes? I'm not too sure about that...You think vermin taste like treats?

    1. Hey, Giz! Oh yes, do I KNOW that we are supposed to chase vermin however there isn't a lot of the "original" vermin we were meant to chase here in Florida. I chase lizards all the time!!

      And I do love a good bunny chase...and they do taste good (I know; I caught one once though Ma made me drop it).

    1. Hi Ann! Oh I wasn't stuck at all. I was, however, going after the baby bunny and Ma was having none of it.

    1. Well, that's because you're big enough to reach the furniture with you tail, Rem. BOL

    1. I haven't gotten stuck yet but that's probably because Ma always grabs my tail...just in case.

  7. Hopefully you weren't too stuck in there! Be careful and have a Happy Wednesday!

    1. Nope. I wasn't stuck but I would have gone all the way through into the neighbor's yard. BOL

  8. Oh no, don't get stuck!! That's not good to have your tail pulled. BOL.

    1. Ma wasn't actually pulling (though she has pulled me out of stuff by my tail in the past). She was just holding on for good measure. BOL

  9. Sure hope that tail is firmly attached! Happy WW!

  10. Well Dolly done beat me to it....I was gonna say da same thing. Darn it!
    Yeppers, doxie and terrior tails were made to pull specifically when we out huntin' in holes.

    OH Oz please tells me you is a little truble maker too!!!!!!!

  11. Puddles, I'm a terrier so of course I AM a trouble maker!!! Ma says I'm a little terror! BOL

    It's fun to know our tails were built for the same thing!

  20. YUPS!! I'm not a big fan of the 'tail pull', butts Ma's other terriers all didn't mind it at all. She had to pull them out of A LOT of holes!! BOL Ma say just remember to grab at the BASE of the tail, or you could get bit!! (ask her how she knows....BOL)

    pees: Hope you got the critter!!

    1. Oh Ruby...I did NOT get the bunny. Ma caught the tail before I got completely under there where the bunny was hiding. Hmmm, how does your mom know about that?

      Delete
  21. LOL! Daisy thinks it's funny when I pull her tail...just don't pull too hard!

    1. Don't worry. Mom doesn't pull too hard at all.

  22. Yikes! Looks like mom ruined a good party! What was on the other side of that fence?

    Replies
    1. A bunny ran from my side of the fence to the other side. Ma did the right thing since one time, I caught a bunny.

  25. That is hysterical! I've been tempted more than a few times to grab our cairn's scruffy tail that way. Oh my gosh...Oz you are so cute. I just LOVE my cairn.

    Replies
    1. *blushes* Well, thank you. You know that is what our tail is for...you just can't pull it terribly hard. I'm so used to it now, Ma really just needs to hold it and I start to back out all by myself.

  26. Works for cats too--just be prepared to run!

    1. It does?!? I would think that cats won't like it very much!

  27. I guess your Mom was trying to stop you from going under the fence, right Oz? Did she succeed?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You know it, my kitty! She did succeed much to my chagrin!

  28. lol! A beagle's tail is good for the same reason, Oz. Which is why Lulu tries to keep her far from me!

  31. Yes! Terrier tails are a useful handle in tricky situations.

  33. Mom started laughing when she saw this picture! We didn't think it was funny cause it hurts when our tails get pulled!!!! We hope your tail is ok!

    1. Oh, it doesn't hurt me at all. Ma doesn't pull hard; she kinda just grabs it to remind me I am not supposed to go all the way under the fence.

      Delete
  34. BOL! We don't think we would allow for tail pulling, but we can't get into very many tight spots!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, if you're not getting into tight spots then you should be safe from tail pulling!
