Been huntin'?

If you haven't heard.... Armadillo Season is back in.
I woke up this morning to the above.

It's been going on for about 2 weeks now. You would never know that they have been Armadillo hunting all night.... but I think Cutie Pie gives it away. You can't tell in the picture, but she was shivering! Cutie, I think you're a little too old to be going on Armadillo adventures.

Look at that tired, pitiful, dirty face. 
I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think he has come back with a stick stuck in the roof of his mouth yet. I am sure that he has lost an entire toenail in the process of this hunting rampage. He completely ripped off the nail and left the 'quick'. He's so stoic. He walks around like nothing ever happened! I don't know about you... but I can't even cut my finger nail too short or it'll killlll me!

How come dogs always stick out their tongues when you're trying to take a picture of them!?

This little tid bit has not gone Armadillo hunting.

He just sits there like a precious little puppy.
Did you notice that thing in the picture above? That squiggly looking black thing sitting behind Latch?
That would be a squirrel's tail. He has spent the past two days carrying that poor squirrel's tail around. He's learning quickly how to survive in this place. Before long he'll be carrying a deer leg around. He's growing up so fast! ;)

I love this! Your babies are so cute. They sound SO much like my parents' dog Dorothy. She loves a good hunt and LOVES dragging around "trophies" from her expeditions :)
