The mouse ran away from the cat

What a lovely afternoon! We cleared yesterday's 3" of snow. Today, the sun is out and I sat in the backyard, reading a book. Daisy and Buster were there, too. Daisy sat on my lap for an hour, Buster sat on the bench. We've been doing this on nice afternoons. The last time Daisy and I heard a coyote howl. It was a bit scary!

Eventually, Daisy took off. She walked slowly across the snow, then stopped and paid keen attention to the snow. I don't know if you remember the fox video that had entertained people, but this was Daisy's strategy, too.

Daisy nearly caught a mouse from Jennifer Jilks on Vimeo.
Just like the foxes, she sat, listened, pumped her hind legs, and pounced.
