The Search for Chip
Danny is a sniffer. On his morning walks his nose is to the ground catching up on what's been going on in the neighborhood. We say he's catching up on his "pee-mail" from the local creatures.
I took him out the other day and he caught wind of a little chipmunk. He dashed for the chipmunk that quickly darted between the rocks in our stone wall. Instead of giving up, Danny went to every crack and crevice sniffing here and there to find the chipmunk. After about ten minutes, I had to pull him off so we could get on with our business.
The first place he visits in the morning is that stone wall. I can almost see the wheels turning in his head saying "I know he went in here...". Meanwhile, the chipmunk is probably four houses away gnawing on a birdfeeder bounty.
