I caught it! I caught it!

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program to bring you this TDB news flash. This is Chester L. W. Stephens your ferocious doggie reporter.

I went out to do my last rounds of security patrol and doggie business, when I heard and smelled a shrew in the rocks under the bird feeder. This time I caught it! I gave it a shake and it landed on the ground where my ghostwriter put a rock on it. Dad scooped it up, brought it into the garage, and placed it on the workbench for identification and an autopsy. Here's a photo of this momentous occasion:

Wow! What a great hunter I am!!! 
We now return you to your regularly scheduled bedtime!

    1. Dad, who has a degree in zoology, preserved my prize catch in a specimen jar filled with alcohol. (No you can't drink it!) That way I'll have a trophy and can tell tall tales about my fearless hunting adventure for years to come! (Oh, did I mention my family is a bunch of science geeks?)

    1. Actually, they taste terrible. But they're a lot of fun to chase because they make a loud squeaky noise. Shrews are tough characters though, so don't try to catch one until your are older and more experienced; or leave that job to your local kitty cat. Besides, a beautiful princess like you shouldn't have to catch little beasties! I'd be glad to come over and catch them for you!

    1. Yeah, humans are quite physically challenged in the olfactory department! Our friend Angus likes nothing more than to roll on a dead fish, but his humans always give him a bath afterwards. No appreciation at all!

    1. No. Dad preserved it for me. Besides I'm sure if they buried it, I'd soon find it again!

    1. Shrew stew? I'll have to consult Joey dog about that. He can check the Yum Yum Coalition Safe Food Directory. I know he has a recipe for squirrel stew. Maybe shrews taste better cooked than they do raw (bleah!)
