Our Intrepid Mouse Hunter

    Just a walk down a country road turns into an exciting adventure for Kona.  She suddenly stops cold, stands silently, listening intensely at the snow, then once she has figured out the coordinates of her prey, she pounces head first into the white powder.  She sniffs and snuffles, under the snow, burying her head in one direction and then the other.  If the scents are promising, she begins furiously digging, then head-dives down into the snow again.  

    It’s wonderful fun for us too, just watching her intensity in the activity.  Fortunately, she never catches anything.

    Below of a photo of what her face looks like after the hunt.
