He cracks me up when he's in the 'zone'. This morning, it was early, I did not want to be up. He woke me up barking at the door. Dragged myself out of bed and let him outside and watched him from the door. He froze on the porch, I was like wtf? Why isn't he going in the yard? Then he does his little 'pointer' pose (I LOVE when he does that) ... one paw up in the air. Then he VERY slowly inches forward. At this point, I know he's stalking something. Keeps inching forward slow... slow... slow... then he take a GIANT leap off the stairs (there's only 3 stairs from the deck) and takes OFF at full speed after this bunny. The bunny got away, thank god, but poor little thing was probably terrified. But it amused me and made me smile this morning. He's SO very serious about his hunting duties.
