Wolfie has a very high prey drive. Ever since he was a puppy, he has stalked and chased anything that moves. One of his favorite things is to go to the beach and stalk the seagulls. He looks like an animal in the wild as he gets low, sneaks up on the seagulls, and freezes, then sneaks a few more steps towards them. Then he charges at them, jumping up as they fly away. I bought him a long leash so he could enjoy his seagull chasing even more. He is excellent at catching flying insects. Just the other day, there was a wasp in the house. As I was walking toward the wasp, rolled up paper in hand, to swat it, Wolfie came silently from behind me, and snatched it out of mid air, chewing it up real fast. LOL. We get a kick out of watching him chase insects in the yard. So this morning, I had him out on a leash, taking him to do his morning business. Wolfie started stalking towards the clump of Iris plants I have in the side yard. There are always bumble bees over there, and chipmunks that he likes to chase. He did his whole stalking behavior, and pounced when we got near the plants. Imagine my surprise, and my freak out, when I saw that he had pounced on a snake! EWW!!! Lucky for me, it didn't bite, and managed to slither away very fast from under Wolfie's leg. YUCK! I totally gross out over snakes. I haven't run across one in my yard for a couple years. The last time Wolfie got a snake was when we were on a walk a couple summers ago.
