The Fox and the Toad

One of Marou's favorite outdoor activities is to stalk small animals and bugs. The amusing part is when they stop running away from him and move toward him. I would never think that this 20 lb dog would be startled by a 3 oz toad that is less than 2 inches tall. He will hop like a bunny when startled by even the smallest prey.

After a few minutes of hunting, Marou usually gets bored and goes about his business and proceeds to relieve himself/mark his usual territory.
As amusing as it is to see Marou hunt, Josie and I have to keep a good watch on him because he has already had an intestinal infection from eating/drinking something that he found on the ground.
While the sport is fun, safety must always come first.
