Buckeye's First Kill

We're pretty sure. In the two and a half years we've had Buckeye she's killed 4 comforters, 7 shoes, 38 moths and chased countless flies and bees. But the dead mouse in her backyard "space" has been identified as her first kill, by the boys.

"MOM! Buckeye killed a mouse! Hey, Boy #2! Buckeye killed a mouse!"
"Awesome. Where is it?"
"I'll show you, it's got teeth marks in it."
"Awesome."
"Wait a minute." I interrupt their delirium. "How do you know she killed it? You didn't see her do it. Check and see if she has mouse breath."
"Mom, she's got the taste for blood now, she'll be going after squirrels next. Won't ya Buckeye? Good dog."
Buckeye had no idea what all this new found attention was about but she was loving it. My baby is the sweetest dog ever, there's no way she's a mouse killer, no way.

I'm guessing a neighborhood cat is framing her.

Yesterday a puppy, today a blood thirsty killer. They grow up so fast.

"killed a comforter" haha. that sounds like my dogs. They love to kill my house hold items and my shoes, but rodents? Not so much. I love the name Buckeye.

Jamie - You know, I think you might be on to something.

ReformingGeek - She's the sweetest thing.

Nooter - She is an angel.

erv - I don't know where the time went. And she's not a blood thirsty killer.

Leeuna - The husband and boys are Ohio State fans, hence the name Buckeye. And thank you.

Candice - She's just yawning in that picture.
