The farmers around us have begun to harvest their wheat during harvest time all the little critters are on the move trying to find new homes. Well there’s no room at our quant little abode or anywhere on our property. I saw what at first glance looked like a kitten running across our lawn but it turned out to be a field RAT. I saw it run toward Dad’s tractor so I took off after it lightning fast alerting dad, Rat, Rat, Rat. He came over and we started looking for the intruder.
Dad said I was in the way but I don’t think I was, I
mean if it wasn’t for my terrier instincts he would not have even known there
was a rat. Dad and I looked high....
I was like a wild man going crazy trying to help dad
find him. Finally we found him wedged
between the motor and radiator, dad grabbed mom’s mop and tried poking the rat
with the handle but he wouldn’t budge. Dad decided he’d get his pellet gun and shoot
him. Dad killed the rat and after he
retrieved it from the motor he let me sniff him but wouldn’t let me have
him. I was all smiles and proud of
myself for a job well done.
