The One with All the Killing

That title got your attention, didn't it?!

So you know how Shelby got a squirrel last week, right?

And how Puddles bagged a chipmunk last Tuesday?

AND then Puddles she moved up in size and got a squirrel today?

Well... tonight... Phoenix.... I can barely paw this.... got a rabbit. Doxies are taking over the world. We didn't actually SEE her catch the rabbit so Phoenix is maintaining that she FOUND it that way. But mom is pretty sure that's not how it happened.

Regardless, mom shrieked (why do they always shriek?) and told Miss Phoenix to "drop it" and then mom pretended everything was fine as soon as she let what was left fall to the grass. (Pretend is the key word there. I could tell she was completely grossed out.)

Phoenix followed us all back to the house but about half way laid down in the grass - belly up. Mom tried to coax her to finish walking but eventually had to carry her back into the house. And then ended up giving us all treats! (I think she felt badly about shrieking.)

She refused to take any pictures. Two-leggers are weird.

Now Phoeny is resting and of course she took a picture of that - like we don't have 87 million of those.


  1. WHAT DA HECK!!!!! Phoeny gots a friggin rabbit?!?!?! Okays, I is officially jealous nows. I will definately be stalkin' da ground hogs now (even though I ain't allowed to even look at them).
    I has to say though, I am very impressed and Phoenix is a testament to da breed. We are a little on da tenacious side huh?

    By da way, Ihtought dat was your mom screaming earlier...yea, all da way down in my 'hood...bwhahahahaha...strange hoomans!


  2. Man, a killing spree is going on!!!

    Congrats Phoenix!

  3. Wow!
    Sounds like hunting season is on!
    Kisses and hugs

  4. OK, now I am scared. These crazy doxies seem to be going after larger and larger animals. I am not much bigger than a rabbit you know (well, maybe a little bigger). I am locking my doors and staying inside until this whole crazy doxie killing spree is over!

    Your pal, Pip

  5. Mom has been keeping her eyes on TD outside lately because he is the great rabbit hunter here. Our little grandbipeds have a nest of baby rabbits on the side of their house. Their dog Gypsy found it, there are about 6 or 7 of them down in a hole covered with grass. They had to let the lawn service know about them because they don't want them to mow over them. Guess TD won't be doing any visiting there for a while.

    Congrats on your big catch, Phoenix.

  6. Wow, this has been a bloody week in Blogville. Happy got a mouse here, but somehow, I don't think that's going to rate its own post. What I want to know is, if we're already up to rabbits, what's next? Kinda scary to think about, eh?

  7. Way to go Phoenix!! I never killed nothing but Aunt Judy's little doxie, Brooklyn, killed and ate the head off a baby squirrel last Thamksgiving before her was able to get it away from her. Brooklyn has not happey to have her prize stolen.

  9. the bloodbath continues... I have to confess that I think this is way more entertaining than the usual fare... does that make me a bad dog?

  10. Hey Zona Girl!
    Wow, I'm impressed! Tell Phoenix this was a super-great job! My mom doesn't like to talk abut my critter bashing either...I don't get that, but we know we're proud of our skills. So, are you the next one to bash a critter??
    Grr and a Snuggly Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  11. PHOENIX.... YOU are a credit to all of us.. WAY to GOOOOOOOOOOO. I am sooooo very much sorry that you don't even have a pic. of your TROPHY!!
    I think this is proof that we... smaller Blogvillians are truly MIGHTY.
    GRRRRRREAT thingys come in Small Packages!!!

    I suppose Cali and Zona are all green with jellyness. I (Frankie Furter) am TOTALLY PROUD.

  12. Way to go Phoenix!!!! Da doxie domination continues!!!!! I better get busy..........I'm a few animals behind in my quota...

  13. What is goin' on in Blogville? What is goin' on wit da Blogville weenies? Da weenies is turnin' into regular terrorists! I guess I is not a weenie :o( beclaws I too lazy to run after anyting.

  14. Well done Phoenix, is there some kind of competition going on, or do you get so many points depending on what you get!!
    See Yea George xxx

  15. I bet she's dreaming of her great adventure!


  16. Oh, wow, it's the Doxie Mafia! Congrats Phoenix, but shhhh, you didn't hear that from us 'cause Mom would probably be upset with the whole thing.

    The Road Dogs

  17. Wow it is crazy about all the doxies - but we have heard they are good at doing stuff like that. Our cousin doxie is an old boy but he still likes to chase stuff around when he has the chance - so we aren't too surprised that it happens - we just can't believe it is all happening at the same time! Oh, and while we don't understand it either, our mom said she was very glad your mom didn't take any pics of Phoenix's prize.

  18. Around here it's lizard and squirrel season. We're always on the watch for them. Mom says a big NO to catching birds and the sneaky rabbits come into our yard at night when we're sleeping. Congrats on your big score.

  19. miss zona,

    me 'n asa got a rabbit last summer, and my mama did that shrieky thingie, too. hoomans are just kinda weirdo sometimes. way to go, miss phoeny!

    the booker man

  20. Wow Phoenix. You are amazing.
    Love Ruby & Penny

  21. Okay, I'm away from Blogville for a week and suddenly everybuddy has these grrreat hunting stories to tell! Congratulations to Phoenix! I know she was proud of herself but it wasn't very reasonable of your mom to A) shriek and B) not stuff and mount Phoenix's trophy. Sometimes moms don't make much sense.

    Wiggles & Wags,
