The oldest and youngest members of The Herd share a passion for squirrel watching. Frankie Suave on the left and Roscoe P. on the right take full advantage of the windows in Hu-Dad’s study to keep track of all of the neighborhood happenings, but squirrels are the top of the list.

    For some reason we don’t have many squirrels in our neighborhood BUT BUNNIES take their places. I hate to say this but they aren’t the brightest bulbs in the sockets!! Unfortunately IF the dogs get on their tails-GOODBYE bunny!!

      Typhoon approves of your comment. He has out-zigged and out-zagged more rabbits than should be possible, but has never caught a squirrel. Since he has become a step slower with age, probably never will, but don’t count him out.

    The older (and stronger) Sparky gets, the more I hate squirrels….

    Perfect sentries. I spy what look like treat containers, possibly a productivity assist (distraction) tool? 😀

      Good exercise for Hu-Dad to get out of his chair and treat us.
