Maddie fancies herself the bane of the woods. To date she has yet to catch anything that still breathes (although she's managed to grab a few, how do I put this delicately? ...a few dead things), but I give the mutt props for her effort and dedication to the task.
Neal reported that during Tuesday morning's walk, she chased a chipmunk up a smooth-barked tree. After a few attempts to climb the tree, she gave up. Mere seconds later, the chipmunk, surely an acrobat, bounced off of Neal's hat, onto his arm, did a triple roll dismount to the ground and scampered away. Let's see Mr. Jingles do that!
