This is Thumper, I think. It could be one of his multitudinous cousins/brothers/sisters/etc. that live under my toolshed. I was out at 9:00 AM this grey morning for a little casual plinking off my deck, when he (she?) came out to see if there was anything new for breakfast. That's my Ruger Blackhawk Elite in the foreground. My shooting doesn't seem to bother him in the slightest. Distance from gun to rabbit is about 10 feet.

You grammarians can throw a few punctuation marks in my title. My apologies to the author of the book by the same name.

Killing furry or feathered creatures for fun sure doesn't paint a pretty picture for newbies either . Shooting furry or feathered creatures for food on the other hand ....... Yummy.

Critter meat fits very nicely between the potatoes and carrots.

Hunting is natural. At my stage in life, I'd rather watch him than eat him.

Yesterday morning, I had to walk to my backstop to shoo him away (at least it could have been him). By the time I walked back, he was in front of my backstop again. So I had to resort to extreme measures.

I released Ivan The Terrible. He's a 12 year old chihuahua with no balls, no teeth, one eye that works (lost the sight in the other one as a result of a fight he started) and one heck of an attitude. He firmly believes he is an 800 pound grizzly and behaves like one with a thorn in its butt. If dogs can become curmudgeons, Ivan is an honour graduate. When he's in hot pursuit, he must breath through his ears, because the noises he makes are continuous. I'll post a pic of the little jerk if I can get him to stay still long enough.

I haven't seen Thumper since.

OK folks... here's Ivan The Terrible (just in case you think I made all this up):
Image

His teeth were rotten, so they had to be removed. Notice the "old man" floppy lips. The derpy tongue is due to the absence of teeth to hold it in place. I think his left eye was the eye torn out by the husky he picked a fight with (previous owner). He kinda looks like Marty Feldman.

He's behind bars for a reason.
