rainy day fun

Needing some entertainment for a rainy day?
Well, let me suggest getting yourself a schnauzer and a box turtle.
Angus (the schnauzer in my life) was having a fit to go out so I gave in (as always) and let him out on the back porch thinking he would run out into the rain, do his business and get back to the dry porch pretty quick.
Little did he or I know there would be this innocent, unsuspecting little box turtle taking refuge on the back porch to escape the weather.

I saw what was getting ready to happen and ran back in to grab the camera. (you can never miss a photo op!)

Angus knew whatever that thing was did not belong there,
and immediately moved in for the attack.
I mean a schnauzer HAS to defend his territory, right?

Well, he saw right away that whatever this little creature was, it was alive.
"Let me back up and rethink this whole thing. Wouldn't want to get hurt!""Okay, I'm going to move in here and take a closer inspection."Notice the turtle is unwavering in his stance.
...So is Angus.
"Maybe I can scare him from this side."

Well, we'll try this side."

Finally Angus gets a little more brave and crouches down, ready to move in for the attack.
Oh, yes, he is one brave schnauzer.
I've heard those box turtles have been known to take out whole litters of schnauzers
in one fail swoop!
Be careful Angus.

Finally, Angus makes his move and the little turtle decides he best scoot on away before he gets carried off in the crushing jaws of the furry brave monster known as Angus.
never mind that blurry last shot. I had to intercept the turtle before Angus really did get hold of it. I mean it only took him 15 minutes to move in and run the turtle off the edge of the porch.

I know most of you will not find this as humorous as I did. I was LOLing during this entire escapade. If you have a schnauzer or any dog for that matter, you can probably appreciate the humor of this. If not, you probably didn't make it through to this point anyway, and it really doesn't matter anyway now does it?

****please note: no turtles....or schnauzers were harmed in the making of this rainy day fun. The turtle was captured and set free in a dry spot of the yard - away from the clenching jaws of the crazed Angus.

On another note, I did some scrapbooking this weekend and will be back later with a new post and some of my random pictures from the weekend.
Happy Rainy Sunday!
