Gah!! The Rat is Right There!

"Gah!  Look at that little $&@#), bold as brass!"  I tried to get the Sea of Unconditional Love's attention without scaring the rat that was feeding from their bowl right under their noses.  "Finn!  Brian!  Get him!"
Brian lifted his head lazily and the rat scampered off.
The girl and I watched the rat scuttle back and forth a couple of more times before we hatched a plan.  We let the Sea of Unconditional Love (our two Great Pyrenees crosses--alas, I miss Beast (he would have been on that rat in a second) inside and I set a trap outside.

And we waited.  And waited.

We're still waiting.  The rat appears to be more interested in other things than collecting dog food, at least for now.

Gah!!

Hopefully there'll be good news tomorrow.  But in the meantime, we have cleared all the rats out from inside the house.  Yay!

Now we just have to eradicate the outdoor nest.

Gah!!

You need a terrier. A nice border terrier that I could take home when the rates are gone!
