With all the ups and downs we’ve had with the temperatures lately, the poor squirrels around here don’t know whether they should be hibernating or not. This little guy paid us a visit, and all he wanted was a drink from the birdbath. It took a little bit of effort to chew through the ice on the surface, but finally his persistence paid off.
Anyone who ever said that squirrels are stupid has obviously never watched one maliciously taunt a dog.
One of the things I love the most about the new house is all the big windows that let in light all day long. Electra loves them too because they are low enough that she can actually see out in spite of her short half basset hound legs. Poor dog didn’t even know what she was missing. But now she does, and it’s driving her crazy…
Tonight’s 365 Project is dedicated to our dear Electra and her squirrely tormenters. We have plans to install a dog door in the spring. Until then, she will have to be content to bide her time and plan her attack.
