or should I say that the rat is back and he brought a a sidekick?
Once again, Rufus has totally blown my mind by not gobbling them up. In fact, he made nose-to-nose contact with one of them this time and his jowls stayed completely shut.
I will say that I was actually working on some photographs in the backyard when it happened this time, so I became a little agitated and impatient by the presence of our unwelcome neighbors. If I had to guess, I think Rufus could sense that I was irritated and fed off my energy, making him a little restless as well. He didn’t harm the rats in any way, shape, or form but he also became more aroused than I was comfortable with towards the end. Because of his mood change, I decided to put him inside before I ended up regretting giving him so much credit.
Self-control can only last so long when you’re a dog surrounded by prey, am I right?
Better safe than sorry!
Until next time, rat friends!
P.S. Again, I apologize for the blurry photos – I was photographing something completely different so my manual settings were on. It’s too bad – I would love to get a clear photo of Rufus kissing a rat on the lips! 😉
