The Mind of a Rat Terrier

Bambi was getting major lovins from Marilee this morning. While most dogs would have been happy with that, we're talking Bambi here. She's a Rat Terrier, with emphasis on the Rat.

Rat Terriers were bred to dispatch rats - one Rat Terrier is reported to have killed over 2,501 rats in a span of only seven hours in a rat infested barn. Having a propensity to kill such vermin also gives this breed the ability to sniff out other vermin, like food wrappers from Taco Bell

(OK, so that's a stretch of the imagination - bear with me.)

So anyway, Bambi continued to get her lovins. And occasionally stretched and re-arranged herself, and did this a few more times so that she ultimately was within reach. Nose ever twitching, she almost attained her goal, totally engrossed, even with the camera near, she didn't even flinch when the flash went off. Needless to say, she never got to the wrapper, but she sure tried.
