That chihuahuas catch mice is not really surprising. They are all at the same level and the dogs can get into the small places near them.
Today I was quite surprised to find a dead sparrow on my kitchen floor.
How chihuahuas managed to catch a bird baffles me, but they did indeed manage.
I successfully disposed of it right away and in a way that they will not be able to retrieve it in the three days that I will be out of town. The last thing I want to return to is the smell of ripened fowl.
When the dogs leave behind such a present - am I supposed to reward them or scold them? I've never quite figured that out. They seem to be quite excited about their accomplishment, but I find it hard to match their enthusiasm.
