Squirrels for Peace

This is just wrong, but we saw it on a t-shirt in the Mast General Store (we don’t blame the store – they give us biscuits every time that we go in):

We are particularly impressed that they have a flying squirrel on the shirt, since the only squirrels we have are the “air force” type.  Totally unfair, we must say.

Even scarier, we were googling for the picture from the manufacturer (www.earthsunmoon.com) , when our google also revealed this site – www.squirrelstore.com.  Apparently, the purpose of the website is to order supplies for squirrels, not to order squirrels just for taste testing.  How disappointing.

But despite this overture of Squirrels for Peace, we are sticking with the Operation Whack-A-Squirrel led by Tank – a perfect name for this effort.

    oh dear – I’ll have to run down there and see this shirt – I may have to bring the cats to handle those squirrels

    And to think, I tried to save a baby squirrel today! Your Tank would be ashamed of me.

    I’ve met some red squirrels. They didn’t seem particularly interested in peace.

    We have the red kind here, but not right by our house. They must fear us! Woooo!
    Storm said back on Ft. Riley, they also had the black kind and that Mom thought they were “beautiful”. “Beautiful”?!? Where does she get these ideas?!?!

    Maybe they are trying to lure us into a false sense of security? We won’t be fooled.

    We have the grey squirrel with the big fluffy tail but I have seen a couple of black ones and they look eviller than Natasha even.

    Eat them? I don’t think they are on my new diet.

    Kisses,

    At least with the store… a pup can order up supplies to entice the elusive squirrel into our dog yard.

    We actually found a site where you can order squirrel but Momma wouldn’t let us use her plastic. She said that we have to catch our own.

    Darn!! I was hoping for the taste testing kind too. I bet they’re yummy.

    Squirrels for peace my fluff! Like anyone is going to believe that!

    Hey Thundering Herd – Thanks for your support and the shout-out! The reason OWAS got started was because of a website that “celebrated” the squirrel… they have blogs and they have followers. I felt the need to squash this uprising and I don’t believe for one minute that the squirrels truly want peace. Look at their faces closely on that shirt – those are not sincere looks, in fact, I think they’re mocking us. I will add the Thundering Herd to the list of new recruits and thanks again for joining the team!
