How many of you have been blessed/plagued by these devious little creatures? My dog is obsessed with chasing squirrels so much that she responds to the word “squirrel” with rage and anxiety. I have such fun memories associated with this one particular squirrel that would climb up the telephone pole to harass my dog. I am not sure what kinds of words squirrels may use… but something tells me they have quite the mouth. Sometimes I wonder if that same squirrel was a particularly naughty one, because one day, during a storm, a lightning bolt shot down and fried him on that same telephone pole where his chattering was most heard… At first, we thought he was just super scared, but when his stiff body came down, we all knew he was toast… I kind of miss that punk.
