Lemming catch

This is a lemming year. Lemmings are small rodents living in the tundra on the mountains and in the forests up north. We do not always see them here in Lapland, but this year they are everywhere. All Yatzie does when outside is chasing for lemmings, nose under ground, tail wagging. They are small and quick and it took Yatzie more than a week until she caught her first and only lemming. I thought she was worth it after having tried for so many days. The dogs up here can catch 10-20 a day and they even eat them. Uuh. Yatzie did not fortunately! This was the first time that Yatzie caught a live animal. I am glad she is not that good at it!
