Kona is a very high-maintenance dog, demanding our constant attention. However, we do sometimes get a reprieve because Kona thinks of herself as a mighty hunter. Whenever she happens upon the scent of a mouse, it takes over all of her attention, and she will patiently sit there in the field without moving for thirty minutes or longer, staring down at the spot where she thinks the mouse might be. Her intense concentration on the mouse, is a welcome time-out for us and relieves us of Kona’s nearly constant demands for attention.
I know mice are extremely important for the ecosystem, and they also make good baby-sitters.
