Melinda F. Schneider level-classic September 20, 2011

Thank you soooo much, Datha and Susan!
The two of you have made my day!! #9681782

Amanda D. Austwick level-classic September 20, 2011

Ohh this is soo funny, Makes my day:) #9681815

Nikki McDonald level-classic September 20, 2011

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. #9681825

Mitch Spence level-classic September 20, 2011

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. #9681828

Melinda F. Schneider level-classic September 20, 2011

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! #9681837

Joy Rector September 20, 2011

love it #9681841

Mary Beth Aiello level-classic September 20, 2011

Straight into my faves, Melinda. This is just priceless. So well done. #9681929

Michele Peterson level-classic September 20, 2011

Lol, Melinda, you did a fabulous job with this!! Too funny, everything about it you got just right. Just the tail end of the mouse to give us a hint of what is going on. And that expression on the dog is great... priceless!! HTD!! #9682031

Melinda F. Schneider level-classic September 20, 2011

Melinda F. Schneider level-classic September 20, 2011

Thorry is just 2 years old and makes me laugh daily. He must be getting over his fears; yesterday he caught a rabbit. #9682646

Graham Robards level-classic September 21, 2011

Oh my goodness Melinda this is the funniest thing I have ever seen.

Priceless, clever and I am sure the clear winner at 101 and BP too!

As UB says "let's hope so"! HDT!
