dogs: killer instinct

Our terrier mix saw a movement on the ground and went into full-on stalker mode. I scooped him up in my arms and we watched a fat and fearless squirrel run up a tree and stare back at us. Every single muscle in the dog's body was coiled and ready to explode in a paroxysm of violence. He grew hotter as he torqued every muscle group up to 11. After a minute the squirrel ran off and I carted the dog back to the car, where he guzzled water. That single-mindedbodied intent to attack is intense.

Here he is, "innocently" stretching:
