Lizard Hunting

… is not a fast sport.

At least, not for my dogs.

They stalk those lizards, moving as slowly as a glacier sometimes.  Every muscle quivering with tension, every movement slow and deliberate.

No, this is an activity that takes intense concentration, patience, and control.

They have never caught a lizard, that’s not the point, it’s the hunt.

Tiger-dog started first, then taught Sparkle-dog.  Together they are quite the frozen team.

Lizard Hunting

They are the topic of many conversations;

“You’re dog’s stuck.  She’s not moving.”

“Why are they walking so slowly?”

“Did you notice your dog has her head shoved in the shrubs?”

“I think there’s something wrong with your dogs, they haven’t moved for a while.”

    I bet if they actually caught one, they wouldn’t know what to do with it! lol

      Of that you are quite right! Frogs and turtles scare them, so a fiesty lizard will have them running for Mommy. (The lizards are as long as your long finger, the tail is the same, so they are about the length of a hand. They change from green to brown and leap about the shrubbery hunting insects.)
