Wonderfully conceived and executed, Melinda. This is adorable. I love his expression! and that the mouse is running away from him but he's still scared. LOL indeed -- great theme entry.

That is terrific, Melinda. The idea and the execution. You can't beat the perfect look of fright and astonishment. And it is inspired, I think, to give us just that look of Mr. Mouse's backside.

Thank you, Amanda and Nikki!
Yes, it reminds me of the old joke about women and mice. That even if the mouse is skittering away, just its presence is enough to make a woman scream. And the sight of this mouse, no matter what direction it is heading, no matter that it is clearly more afraid of the dog and skeddaddling away just as fast as it can, has the dog in quite a TIZZY!
