There is more and more snow and more and more silly squirrels in our yard. They run and jump from snowy treetop to Neighbor Chris' roof next door. They swing on her birdie feeder and scare the birdies away. Whenever they cross onto my territory and even when they don - I bark my head off and Mom waits until she can't stand my noise anymore and let's me out the back door. I go off boundin' across the yard! Mom says she's gotta make a video a'me doin' that cuz I look like a gazelle. I hope a gazelle is a good thing. Lexie hasn't teased me 'bout bein' a gazelle so it prolly isn't bad. I dunno.
Mom seems disappointed that I have not yet brought home a squirrel for dinner. She said to leave the birds alone, but if I happen to get a squirrel, we could at least eat that. I think she's kiddin', but I'm not sure. I thought I would get to eat it, though I din get to eat that rabbit or the two birds. I don trust her. I think she would take my squirrel, too. I gotta keep tryin' though. It is in my very dogginess to chase, capture and kill those things. Grrrr!
You are lucky to have squirrels to bark at. I used to have squirrels in Winnipeg but there are no squirrels in Timmins. I have tons of trees in my year and still no squirrels.
How can that be, Jelly? No squirrels? Do you have lots of pups in Timmons or sumthin'? BOL!
No squirrels?? I nebber! We has tons of 'em here, always in our backyard eatin' our acorns! Or right on da udder side of da fence in da neighbor's yard starin' at us, tauntin' us. One of deez days!
HD sighs, we don't got any squirrels either Jelly.
Buddy, perhaps Mom wants the squirrel so she can make something stylish to wear from the tail. If she'd get the tail, you'd get the rest. Everyone's happy, except maybe Lexie. You should probably share with her. It would be the gentlepup thing to do.
Dear Auntie Shelley,
Mom said she won wear the fur cuz she is 'fraid of some peoples shootin' her wif paint balls. I can't imagine what she is talkin' 'bout. I think she wants to eat the meat. Times are tough. I think squirrel meatz would be tough, too. Takes dog teeth to eat it proper-like. I'll just have to be sly like a fox terrier and hide my catch, if I can get it!
Buddy-keep trying to catch those pesty squirrels. very few are ever caught. They swing like monkeys in the trees. They are great roof climbers,too! They used to tease me all the time! Even knock pine cones out of trees at me...Then, I decided chasing deer was more Fun! At least I got a good 5 mile run... xoxoxoxox Angel Foxie (I'm a Fox Terrier, I tried all my life to get 'em...)
BTW- short legged Mazy tries to catch those little devils, too. She hasn't caught one,either.
I gotta tell ya somethin' KSF . . . my pal Zubee and his pack (there are 7 in his family, all schnauzers) caught 42 squirrels in their yard on year. that was a record for them. I don have any help cuz Lexie can't see no more. I just know if I had six pals, I could get them all - BOL!
