Found a windfall in the yard today !! I had just about given up hope of finding food out there again, especially since its been cold with frost the last two nights so that even the mushrooms froze and disappeared.
Anyhow, I was checking the yard with Sniffers, when all of a sudden what did we spy - peanuts socked away in an indent in the lawn!! musta been put there over night by the neighborhood squirrels, can't think how else they got there.
We would have gotten away with it too if Sniffers had chewed more discreetly, but no she had to stand there moving her mouth in such a manner as to make mom suspicious and walk over to where we were. Busted!! mom picked up the stash and tossed it (sigh), maybe Mr Squirrel will bring more tonight....we'll be checking first thing in the a.m.
