Lizard Hunting 101

Lizard Hunting 101 with Pierre featuring Westie
   “Welcome to Lizard Hunting 101. Being on the Bayou, you might be wondering why I am hunting lizard instead of alligators. It’s simple reasoning; to a lizard I look like a huge white monster, but to an alligator, I look like a tasty mini marshmallow.”
Westie is garden of yellow flowers and metal spoke
   "Successful lizard hunters find a lush garden or flower bed to set up camp. I love to explore when flowers are at their peak bloom." (Ignore Mom rolling her eyes)

   "Always stay alert for any movement. Remember the three lizard hunting L’s…Look, Listen, Leap."
Westie watching a lizard in the garden
   "Lizards are tricky. They can become one with a plant so keep your eye on them. Don’t let them bribe you with their “money pouch.” It is not even a real quarter in there."

   “Lizard hunting is always more fun with a friend. You can divide and conquer or team up for action. *Fun Fact: If you both begin to bark and hop around, your mom will think it’s a snake and lose her mind.” 
   “Never let the lizard smell fear. If you miss your target, don’t worry. Another lizard will be darting past any minute. Should any flowers get trampled or killed during a hunt, look innocent and admit to nothing. Now, let's go out there and hunt some lizards!”

Wordless Wednesday's blog hop.


  1. Oh boy. If we had lizards in the yard, we wouldn't be allowed outside and Mom wouldn't go out either. She doesn't like any reptile creatures and we are forbidden to come in contact with them too. You guys have fun doing a "forbidden" sport.

  2. we have no lizards here... think that would be the nuclear meltdown for the mama.... she once athrow a whole howlteil into turmoil because of a lizard on the ceiling.... butt it was huge ... around 8.7 ft... well ok it was 3 inches... butt suuuuper scary!

  3. I think I will go on a lizard hunt myself!!

  4. That looks like way to much fun, I love lizards.

  5. Look innocent and admit to nothing...that's the rule around here.

  6. We don't have lizards here. Looks like you are having some fun!!

  7. those are some great tips - we have so many lizards around us but oddly enough we just totally ignore them

  8. Look

    Leap We are practicing this EXCELLENT Lesson... We have never had a chance to go Lizard hunting... butt we want to be READY... Just in case the opportunity pawsents itself.
    Look Listen LEAP
    Now about that wild barking and the Moms losing their minds... thinking it is a SNAKE.. THAT would be a fun thingy to watch... butt FURST our mom would need to FIND her Mind.. We believe it has been MISSING fur 87 months or so. (THIS TIME)

  9. Wow, that sounds like such fun! Sorta like chipmunk hunting here in my yard. I would definitely avoid the gators...too many big, sharp teeth. Yikes. BOL.

  23. We don't have lizards to leap at around here but we do like faking our mom out in thinking it might be a snake. BOL!

  24. that's a good life saying... "look innocent and admit to nothing" maybe that will be my phrase.

  25. Adorably clever post. Sam would probably run up a tree if he spied a lizard, not to mention what I'd do! LOL

  26. So much to see, and show mom! Who knows what they find on their next adventure!


I'd love to hear from you! Bark back!
