'Share It Sunday’, Guest Blog Bordoggyterrier Barnies Dog Blog

Nominated by last week’s guest blogger Posiedorg Blog!

How to be a Hunter Bordoggy Terrier Style!

GruffHello there!

Being a great hunter myself akin to the uttermost professional standards and amongst the very best of the World's finest, (I may be deluded, but as long as I don't know it, who cares ey - ha ha!) today for you less fortunate 4Legs in the hunting department, especially for you, I be mainly imparting valuable hunting expertise, advise, hints and tips!

Now I want no slackers on our tour today - I don't care if it is or has been or about to be too hot, (well this is England, so we gotta hedge our bets either way with the weather!) so c'mon you guys, for you can't let the Fabulous 4Leg side down here - we have a job to do!

Now (errrmm excuse me over there, do be paying your full attention - do not drift off from our educational exercise - even if Mummy2Legs does say that educational exercise is the best sort, as it involves less moving!)

Please do be noting my first helpful hint which is that we must now poise ourselves up high for a good vantage point is a must!

Where are you, honestly - try to keep up!

Ah, there you are, don't creep up behind me like that, that's my job (of course, I knew you were there really – honest!)

We must ride high! (exceptions permitted for our taller specimen of Fabulous 4Leg - they just gotta put their nose in the air) - they can lie low as thus!

Once we have located "Target" we then cover ourselves in camouflage, now see, are we not a most attractive flower?

Buttercups are acceptable - do I like butter? (probably given chance!)

Are we not the dandiest of Dandelions!

The furriest Foliage too! It confuses “Target”.

Personally I am known to blend in wonderfully with rocks!

But can diversify into blending with trees!
A man multi-tasking yers it is!

Now - "Target" be behind us!

Highland cows apparently? I appreciate it was not the Squirrel/Rabbit/Bird we had hoped for - alas, despite my very best intellectual efforts, the practical art of getting near to any of these things appears to elude even me - heaven only knows why, I mean I have read the books and everything!

Anyhow, Highland Cow "Target" not looking afraid yet, though we should leave as Target's having lunch - and, erm, well they are pretty big and might not see us of smaller stature and stand on those less speedy than myself - not that I am scared, only thinking of you guys! - Lets move on!

These deer roam free on the grounds of  Harewood HouseIf we go on the grass though we will get into all sorts of trouble and those with lesser nerves of steel than I might quiver - swiftly moving on!

Now turning our sniffing skills over here, for "Target" do be stupidly lying beside us!

Oh jeepers! Sorry there guys, forget that last comment, think we may be his "Target" here - thought it was a Fox, I wondered why he didn't look worried - easy mistake to make no?

Best be moving swiftly on now, again......!!

He we go, for its the great chase now - c'mon guys, do keep up, your losing me!

Now for technical reasons you will appreciate that I have had to prepare these pictorial hints and tips guide taken over a few days, mostly on walks with Mummy and Daddy2Legs (they walk places with maps, odd really as they drive for ages to get there!) - fear yee not though for I am poised and ready to go with you all - I will champion the way - leading with great skill, speed and stealth......

I fear I may go that fast you will not even be able to see me........

So fast you will think I am not even there!......

Oh dear - for I see you have actually found me, erm...well... you see in order to mentally prepare for these amazing feats of hunting prowess one does need to psyche up, deep breathe and partake in relaxation exercises to calm the nerves and steady the excitement and tension in our bodies!

What do you mean you don't believe me - pffftttt, what else did you think I was doing, I mean honestly, do I really look like I am sunbathing!

I am in a high state of alert and preparation - as always - it's me remember! - well that's my story and I am sticking to it - ha ha!

Shall we resume our hunt another day - c'mon now guys, chill out, come and have a Bordoggy Biscuit with me!
