They are a mess. During the day, they have "squirrel watch." They take turns perched on our bed looking out our window that over looks the yard. They intensely watch for squirrels or anything to dare enter our back yard. Then they are ALL OVER IT! The house will be peaceful then out of nowhere they both come barreling down the hall barking ferociously at an innocent animal.
Tennessee is a big hunting state. Other owners with dogs like our actually take them hunting this time of season. They usually start training to learn how to hunt around 2 years old so we might look into it come next fall/winter. Because ours already think they are professionals.
So if there is a giant famine in this country, I don't think we will be going hungry. Squirrel stew...mmmm.
