Border Collie Hunts Critters: Winter and Summer Editions

Lilly, our intrepid canine heroine,  is an avid hunter of small game. Mice and voles, mostly. In spring 2009, we posted an hunting instructional video — master class, if you will — of Lilly at work. Today, we share the winter edition of Lilly hunting. Her initial pounce alone is worth a chuckle. (Don’t worry. She doesn’t catch anything.)

P.S. At first, Ginko thinks Lilly is playing with him. He misreads her pounce as a play bow.

Very fun. It’s awesome watching that hunting instinct emerge. Thanks for sharing.

Too cute. Our Molly once caught a mouse in the office. She had it before I could get her away from it. She almost caught one on the deck this morning, but she is older and slower now.
