Around our house the current entertainment isn’t so much preparing for trick-or-treaters as it following the antics of our gullible dog, Honey, and the tricky squirrels who live here.
This is our dog most afternoons, checking out the front pasture for squirrel activity. And the second shot (to the left) shows her as soon as one (or more) of the squirrels run to the middle of the pasture to stand and taunt her to chase them. No, I’m not kidding here. Don’t let the sweet fuzzy tails on those little critters fool you.
Those squirrels may run after a nut, but then they stop and chant, “nyah, nyah” to the dog. I’ve seen ’em. LOL
The shot below shows the Evil Squirrel Tree. Honey is that small white image to the left of the tree, and she’s there most days.
We have a lot of trees in our yard, but this one seems to be HQ where all the taunting squirrels run to the most. We assume they’re up there planning their next psychological campaign–or attempting to bonk her on the head with empty acorn shells.
But Honey is a tenacious and patient Lab. She will stay on guard all day now that she knows the location of the squirrel enemy, waiting for the squirrels to make another move. Hope they are ready for a seige–at least until dinner time.
Note: No fuzzy tailed squirrels or wonderful white dogs were hurt to make this post. Apparently the thrill of the chase is enough for Honey, and the squirrels just remain their ornery selves.
