What should any seriously minded badger dog do when there aren't any badgers handy. Well they do what we all do, that is, make do with the next best thing. Today it was the long tailed weasel.
Now Spaatz and Peaches, Sandie too. She does try. They have been concentrating most of their efforts on squirrels and chipmunks, because they are plentiful. Chipmunks especially this year, lots of them. Miss Peaches got a chipmunk last week and a snake the week before.

It was surprising when Spaatz pulled the weasel out of the wood pile that is inside the dog fence. The weasel didn't have the big picture in mind. Perhaps he wanted chipmunk for breakfast too, or a bird perhaps.Unfortunately for him there was a team of badger dogs on staff here. Also known as the mighty dachshund.
