Dui the Ever-ready

And the ain't cats.

Amazing the cooperation when there is a treat in sight.

As you know we have heaps of cats in our 'hood,
And Dui is always in hyper-mode scanning the area
for cats.
Our early morning walks are taken in the dark
lit by streetlights.
Cats usually appear as furry puddles with flattened ears
watching us intently
or sit upright like statues.
They know the dogs can't get them.
Dui always stops, glares and lunges to get them to run.  
(Cats that don't move are useless.)
On later walks,
Dui also stops, glares and occasionally lunges
at ain't cats.*
Ain't cats can be plant pots, water meters, shoes left by
a front door, garden ornaments, bit of rubbish, piles of
garden waste...…..
Dui is always at the ready to Stop, Glare and Lunge.
(and usually tangles the leads.....sigh.)

*Ain't Cats is the term SHE uses based on Stymie (The Little Rascals) who
once ate half a bucket of  Ain't Ice Cream before discovering it was lard.


  1. You are such a good guard dog Dui!!
    Rosy, Jakey & Arty

  2. It must be in the genes - we all stop, stare and lunge if we can - those cats are the biggest tease. At least the squirrels and rabbits run away, but those silly cats just sit and gawk at us.

  3. Dui, you can't be too careful. Those cats could be hiding as anything.

  4. oh my hahahah.... we had one black cat yesterday... and the worst was da phenny saw it furst and the mama had a problem... a 36 kilo problem.... so we suggest glasses for her too, so she can se the cat before the pup(ist taht possible? probably not LOL)

  5. I never see a cat on my walkies! You go, Dui!

  6. LOVE LOVE the 'ain't' reference....SHE is quite clever. I don't think I ever heard that on Little Rascals.
    DUI 'ain't' cats might not be cats; however, they are excellent for lunge practice. Hugs Cecilia

  7. Good work keeping the cats and the ain't cats from getting in your way Dui.

  8. still lauging over the lard thing. that is news to me... tell Dui we have aint cats also. but so far, Big just goes on alert, ears forward nose forward and FREEZE... and I say aint a cat, it s newspaper or what ever it is... I must say Dui beat Big for sitting for treats. big sits like that unless the camera aims at him

  9. OMD, I do that too!!! I thinks maybe it's a terrierist thing. If it wasn't there the day before, it deserves to be barked at! amirite
    Don't lets the peeps make you out to be a weirdo, you are just doin' your due diligence!!!
