Beagle Patrol hits a Jackpot!

What's with the animals in my neighbourhood? First, it was the cat and the kitten who decided to make the bamboo tree in my backyard their home. Now, this beagle has spotted another intruder in our front yard. A tree shrew or what it's known as "tupai" in Malaysia decided to occupy our benjamin fig tree in our front yard. I tell you between patrolling the front and back yard, this beagle needs reinforcement against the neighbourhood pests.

In one of those rare moments, my human managed to record this beagle in action and even managed to catch the shrew in action. Be warned though, you really need to have sharp eyes to spot that conniving shrew jumping across the branches midway through the one-minute video.

Unfortunately, this beagle was not successful in hunting down the shrew. It started to drizzle shortly after this video was shot. Whilst, I wasn't about the let the shrew off the hook so easily (after all what's rain but a little water???), my human decided to carry me back into the house, muddy paws and all. I can't believe I had to suffer such indignity!

Wow, Kess - you must have really good eyesight! I wouldn't even have noticed the shrew! Great hunter!

You let your human carry you back to the house? I strained my eyes to spot the shrew but I saw his tail only, gosh, If I was that shrew, I would have passed out thanks to your sonic bark!
By the way, would you please swing by my blog to look at my family portrait, finally my mom came out from her shyness to say hello to all of you.

Wow, it looks like hard work, guarding your house from intruders! My humans never let me go to the front garden when neither of them can come along with me. So I never have an opportunity to patrol our property. Boring...

Woo - with you around, no movement occurs without your knowledge.

Hi, Kess!
I can see you were determined to get him!
Sorry they did not let you!
Happy weekend!
Kisses and hugs

this reminds me of the incident where the stray cat (whom my neighbour human likes feeding food with) intruded our balcony (aka our toilet) and helped itself with towels/blanket left there. i swear, i can smell them every morning when we go to the toilet. :( those stinks can't be washed!

wet wet licks
