The saga of Chippy & Audrey continued this a.m.  This time, Audrey was almost met with success as I assisted her in removing some limestone rock from a retaining wall.  Audrey was barking and biting the rock; she wanted the furry lil thing in a very bad way.

Can you see my tail?  How about my butt blur?

Chippy flew out of a gap with crazy speed and darted into another retaining wall.  Fortunate for it.  Audrey was hot on its tail though.  Again, she was digging and biting at the rock.  She was become quite adept at traversing the many obstacles between her and her quarry.

At 12 years old, she is as spry and nimble as a pup, but still not as quick as Chippy.  A mere mention of a treat did not rattle her concentration; she was in the “chippy zone” hard this time.  There was an up close and personal visual this go round; one that will certainly not soon leave her mind.

Chippy 1- Audrey 0

Poor Audrey has been chasing Chippy around the yard for days.  That little chipmunk is just too quick for her and its hiding spot too numerous.  The limestone retaining walls provides easy cover.   She tried and tried to get at chippy.  This dance plays itself out most days; multiple times a day.  She is vigilant.  A call for a treat eventually persuaded her to leave Chippy be.
