Dakota the Rat Terrier

Do you know anything about 
Rat Terriers?
I have learned over the past 10
years a lot about them...
or at least about mine!

Did you know they were bred for 
hunting rodents in the barns
and farms?

Well, that is part of the breeding
that is still in Dakota's blood.
He just needs to pick up the

He is him (a tad younger) right
after he chased a squirrel up a tree.

And just so you know that was not
a fluke he is he doing it
again at another tree.

He was really trying to climb 
that tree.

Funny....a few years ago I had squirrels
eat a hole in my wood at the eve of the 
roof....they danced over my head at
night. Dakota had NO CLUE.

Then one year a mouse moved
in. HAHA..
there again NO CLUE!

He has not earned his keep 
that is for sure!

Thanks for checking in on the KING.


  1. the King with no clue... ha ha, could be an interesting title for a book. so cute

  2. Squirrels are much more interesting than rats or mice even if he did miss the ones that moved in. :-) Have a good week Diane

  3. Dog breeding is amazing. And what a darling little king you have.
