Adventures of Mel the Dog

This is Mel. Or at least Mel's rear-end.

And what is Mel doing, you ask? He's hunting LIZARDS!!!!!!!

The kids and I were screaming, "Get 'em, Mel, get 'em!!!!" And he was trying with all his might. 'Cause he's a good dog, and always does what he's told (NOT).

He kept getting deeper and deeper into the wood pile. It was really quite funny. His tail was flipping around, and we could hear him making funny grunting noises.

Isn't his tail pretty?

He finally started coming out of the wood pile. What happened next is startling...and I didn't get a picture of it, because I was SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS!!!!!! Mel caught himself a big, juicy lizard. It's arms, legs and tail were hanging out of his mouth. I got in the house as quickly as I could, since I KNEW he would be presenting me with his catch, and I just didn't want that kind of present!!!

I sure wish I had gotten that last picture, but you will just have to take my word for it.
