Basil gets a jump on holiday fun!

    Newer Older

    Squirrels make Basil's blood boil! He will chase them up trees and then stand under the tree barking and jumping up the tree trying to get at them. He also becomes completely deaf when he sees a squirrel - no voice command to be heard.

    Once, he jumped so high that he caught a low-flying bird mid air.

    Now, if I could only teach him to jump this high on command...

    For Flickr Group Roulette: Anything goes, 365 or less oh, and also: congratulations Maitexu on finishing your 365!!! I'm so sorry that I didn't get to know you better. Since I am kind of a newbie still - just on day 35. You are very creative and I've enjoyed looking at all your pictures. You should be proud!!

      Oh my god, that is terrifying. My Crow has that strong prey drive, too. I'm so glad he can't jump like that!

      We had three black bear cubs up a tree today. My JR, Indy, would really be screwed if he attempted this!
