    Surrounded by high mountains, we didn't see this phenomenon either. Could have done with that hound's insight and perspective.
    How much do we really understand of nature's intuition?

    Mice in Australia are of course at disturbing numbers as they are not a native species, or are cats. So it's usually dogs that are mousers:

    dog mouser…
    the moon’s whiskers
    brush alongside

    That Toowoomba Sheep Station dog mouser (retired but still haunting the sheds) was called Max! So he was Max the Mouser (rtd). <grin>
