Vole Patrol

Today Belle and I were on Vole Patrol at church.  We are very good at this.  Working as a team we have eradicated countless voles.  They don't stand a chance.  Once we killed 4 at one shot.  We put our nose under the thingys that the water drains onto from the down spout, then we flipped them up and at the same time we each caught one in our mouth and Belle stomped one with her foot and I stomped two.  So here are a couple of shots of us on duty.

Ready to start

Surveying the area

We even get them in the field area around the church.  Even more challenging becasue the alfalfa is taller than us.

Belle goes left, I go right

Back to the flower beds.  Belle has her eye on one.  She got it

Now I got one and of course Belle is backing me up.

This is from last year when we got the four at one time.

All total today we got rid of 13 voles.  Well 13 that MOM saw.  I can tell you there was more.  And in case you are wondering, NO we do not eat them, just crush them.  And let me tell you Vole Patrol pays very well.  The people at church give us tons of hugs, belly rubs, lots of love and we get tasty treats and stuffies.  

After a day of vole patrol and playing at Bert's place it is time for some much needed shut eye.  Tonight we decided to let MOM have her own bed and we took the couches.
Blessings,
Goose

  15. Oh my gosh, those two couches look incredibly comfy to snuggle on. I know MOM probably appreciated stretching out in her bed, but I imagine she did some spectacular snuggling with you two first!

    We must know, what's a vole? I'm headed to google. I'm so intrigued...

  16. Woof to you Goose!!!! I am DYING to come down and help you with your next vole patrol. We NYC dogs don't get nearly enough vole patrol time. And even though I am an NYC dog, I am still quite the huntress and have ninja like reflexes, so I think I'd be a good addition to your team. Much love to you - XXOO - Mazzie

  18. Well done Goose and Belle. I just hope those voles don't carry any diseases you can catch. We have prairie dogs here and they are carriers of different plagues. Have a wonderful weekend.
