    That's nothing. My parents' 15-ld sheltie can catch possums with her bare teeth!

    Wow, now I have dial up so I didn't watch the entire video as I have been watching it since 10:54 till 11:10 just to watch 52 seconds of it...dial up [​IMG] All I can say is DO NOT let Miss_Jayne see this or you will give her ideas!! You are amazing R-R. I was sitting up close trying to see it when you were aproaching the steps then shooting back in my chair [​IMG] Like it was going to get me? [​IMG] Great video [​IMG]

    Very very brave to be touching a wild animal like that (or at least in my mind)...Was something wrong with it that it was soooo s-l-o-w?? I thought they usually are smart enough to run off...I mean I know they 'play possum', but I didn't think you could just pick one up???
