My Bug Catcher

I have mentioned about my little dogs. Maisy is a bit of a brute, but Max likes to chase things. He loves the chase. I will catch him stalking spiders, ants, and water bugs as they cross the family room floor. He will also jump after flies when they are in the house.

Yesterday, I was stitting on the floor with my laptop in front of me and Max wanted on my lap. For some reason, while he was standing next to me, the cursor caught his eye.

I wasn't sure at first if he was actually looking at the cursor or soemthing else. Of course, I had to see what he would do and I moved the mouse a little bit.
Eventually, he was nipping at the monitor and stepping on it to try and get the 'bug.' He even was looking behind the monitor to see where it was going. He is a smart one!

He is soooo cute. Dogs have a personality all their own. We live on a farm and we get alot of mice in the barn around the feed. We don't have a cat out there like alot of people, we have Agnus. She catches the mice...Don't know what we would do with out her. Kristie

Oh that is so cute. Aren't they just fascinating little fury creatures. Murphy will sit and watch a dog show on TV for the longest time. He gets upset though when Animal Planet is on and a dog gives birth. He just starts to pace. Cindy

That's great that you caught that moment on camera! I have two labs that are always doing funny things but they don't seem to notice the television or the monitor. Sometimes if they hear a dog barking on the tv, they will run around looking for the dog, but they never find one of course and usually give up after awhile. I heard that most dogs can't see images on the tv because the resolution isn't right somehow - but your dog prooves that idea wrong! ~Jen Leave a Comment

Too funny the meows do that too. You should have seen them try to catch the race cars on the TV and Thelma well she likes to look at herself in the mirror
