    my new favorite video... I'm thinking of putting it on a loop on a jumbotron... the voices of the excited participants is maybe my favorite part... and the good dogs gettin' after them rats!

    My buddy Catnip had a rat terrier actually named Buddy .

    Nicest dog, man what a sweetheart. But he’d get within a football field of a rat and he would go ape **** .

    Which means he would run to the back of my garage and pace back-and-forth and if you didn’t stop him he’d dig a hole the size of a garbage can in four seconds :lol:

    That's a lot of rats. Reminds me of my time in Houston. We had some huge rats and plenty of them. Fortunately I had one of the largest domestic cats I've seen: 20 pounds of rat-eating fury. He would frequently bring me a rat-treat, leaving it on the floor where I would first step in the morning. Precision cat geometry was used to place the rat exactly where I would step. Cats are smart that way.

    That's one way to get terriers and Portugese water dogs to behave. We don't spend time digging up rat holes but our current dog does in a few bunnies each year.

    Mink are very efficient killers....they say pound for pound the most vicious, deadly animal around....and they can get down into the nests that even small dogs can't.....

    Dang, and I thought I was special for catching a mouse in a mouse trap this morning!

    Cheers,
    Doug

    I didn't watch the whole thing. Did any terriers lose an eye from the wicked fork?

    A couple months ago I was also proud of catching a mouse in a trap. My dogs didn’t notice the mouse. Good loose soil for a farm but obviously also good for rats. Good job to get rid of them.

    I used to fish on the Cape Cod Canal and the best fishing is at night. I'd hear rats fighting in the rocks that line the canal all the time.

    Mink moved in or were planted there and the rat population drastically dwindled. The mink kinda made me spooky though.

    The only point those folks would have in bitchin’ is that we humans might just be neck and neck with the rodents as far as disease-carrying is concerned .

    But, we can think so we can contain/control our filthy-ness though...
