Due to the relative scarcity of squirrels in Vancouver, Sofie has taken up a new pastime: seagull chasing. She has yet to grasp the fact that wing power can outmaneuver her four short legs any day, so she expends lots of energy in the hunt.
In the spirit of the sunny day, we did some hiking in the Endowment Lands, a gorgeous 14-square-kilometer area of forest and beaches just west of the Vancouver city limits. As soon as the leash came off, the hunt was on.
Slow…one step at a time…sudden full-on seagull chase! Stop to gulp seawater. Back to the chase!
She did come close a couple of times, but I don’t think she would’ve had the slightest clue what to do had she actually caught up with one.
