Apparently today is Squirrel Appreciation Day. I also appreciate squirrels. Not perhaps in the way that the appreciation people would like, but in my own way.
I am happy to wait for squirrels, in anticipation of appreciating them.
Here I am leaving the squirrels a little appreciative note, to let them know I've been here, and that I'LL BE BACK
See? APPRECIATION. And of course ANTICIPATION - which if there were any squirrels about would be absolutely directed toward them, but since there are none to be found (they must all be out celebrating and getting drunk, dancing in trees, etc.)...
Yes, I will take that lovely stick please.
Not going to give it to me? No worries - I shall find my own. And not just one measly stick, mind you...
Oh wait... you're gonna throw that one that I previously disparaged? BRING IT ON!!!
So squirrels, take today and know that us dogs everywhere APPRECIATE YOU. Of course if we catch you we might eat you, but know that we would APPRECIATE that.
