Squirrel Patrol

Ah, a break in the clouds, no rain for a little while. Midday walkie time!

Ah, pretty leaves. So many colors.

They're EVERYWHERE. Soft on my tootsies.

But wait... what's that?

Perhaps with your human eyes, you cannot see him. But I could feel his presence, see him, smell him. A squirrel is in this tree, and he's throwing things at me.

He's here, I know it - I can smell his frisky little nose and his twitchy little tail. And those acorns are still hitting me in the head.


Perhaps you have won this battle, my little furry friend, for I cannot climb this tree and whoop your squirrel butt. But if you venture down, YOU ARE MINE

Bogart, squirrels are irritating little creatures. I have spent many an hour chasing them! I prefer to chase them round and round the bottom of the tree with hooman on the other end of my lead..... we end up tree hugging!

Hi Bogart.... we really don't have those little furry creatures around here.... but we have birds!!! Mommy had to move the GOLD FISH POND because I was lying in "wait" for the birds to land for a drink.... man, I was having a least ONE bird a day.... and whatever gold fish I could get... heheheehe.... was mommy ever mad at me!!! Needless to say... she KILLED that party.

Hay Bogart,
Our Bambi has been on squirrel watch ever since she came to her forever home. We live on lots of land with a 6 foot fence around 2 acres of our land. We have lots & lots of trees and there for lots of squirrels. Bambi has believed
that it is her job to chase every squirrels that gets on the ground.
Love you Bogart and Lulu

We're with you on this one Bogey! Nelly is a pretty good watchdog when it comes to squirrels. We have them in the garden dropping things on Nelly's head! Pesky things!
Keep up the good work!

Hey Bogart. There was a squirrel that was right outside the window, right on our deck this morning. Fergi slept through it, and I just quietly watched. Try as I may with my stuffies, I just don't have the live prey instinct in me. They are all my friends. I just wag my tail and watch. And wish we could play. I'm just a gentle softie at heart.

(Please don't tease me. Not that you would. But I am who I am.)

Hi Bogart,
