Saw a bug in the bathroom earlier.
I went back to the living room, where Duchess was relaxing on the couch, and coaxed her to follow me back to the bathroom. As soon as she spotted the bug, she knew what was expected of her. I left her to it and returned to the living room.
About ten minutes later, Duchess came back, and dropped her conquest in the middle of the floor. I petted her and praised her and fussed over her, and now she has no doubt she is The Mighty Hunter, Slayer of Bugs. You should have seen her strutting around, leaping on the bug with great drama and generally showing off. Now she’s back in the bathroom, looking for more bugs.
If only I could teach her to put their little corpses in the trash.
