Petey has a bee killing obsession. He spends hours each day in the summer killing bees and then doing a grass kicking victory dance after each kill. Apparently, it never gets old! (And apparently, he's a little OCD!)

Fortunately, neither of the dogs have allergies. But I always keep benedryl on hand just in case. I tried fencing off the honeysuckles, but he just ripped it out to get to the bees. :rolleyes:

So anyway, I parked myself outside today with the camera and managed to catch some of the show. ;)

First, the enemy.

And the battle ensues!

they look like they are having a blast catching bees, Enzo does that too, he ends up jumping a few feet in the air and all you hear is the chomping of his teeth:dog:

:laughing: OMG, that's hilarious!!! :laughing: They're having so much fun!

Do their mouths ever swell? :eek:

Those bald-faced bees scare hazel and madame hazel out of their wits! This time of year they hang out in the hummingbird garden and wait for someone to come change a feeder....then they swoop! :eek: Sir Petey and Lady Belle are so brave!!!! My heroes! :flirt:

That looks like so much fun!!! Too funny that grass kicking dance. I thought mine was the only one who does that. I call her the mighty bull fighter when she does it.
I love that evil look in Petey's eyes in the 3rd pic! He looks a little possessed!

You have very cute dogs, i love the pictures!!


Did you know that one of the types of bees in britain has gone alltogether and genious einstein said that if all bees in the world die we would have only enough food to last for 5 years because bees would not polinate anything and for some wierd reason that no scientist has yet been able to discover loads of bees around the world have been dying (???):shrug:

I hope petey isn't to blame!!

Only joking:D

LOL, thanks guys!!!! :)

Hazel, they are lucky! Neither have been stung at all yet this summer and both were only stung once last summer. Neither had any swelling at all. What a crazy obsession! I HATE bees! LOL!
