It all began this morning. I was in the bathroom doing my morning grooming routine. Star and Kc are looking out the screen door onto the patio. All of a sudden Star lets out a YELL and jumps up on the screen! I open the screen door to see what has my sweet Boxer fur babies so excited! This really takes the cake! About 6 feet away on my 12 foot wall lays this stretched out squirrel with his head propped up staring up at my dogs! His tail is moving back and forth in a waving motion! He is actually waving at them! The squirrel is not moving and is truly laying in the sun savoring the moment. Whereas the Boxers are in a frenzy of whining, barking and howling! This rabid rodent with a big fuzzy tail is tormenting my babies!
Just the day before he pirouted from the 12 foot fence onto a branch of the neighbors tree and climbed out as far as he could into my yard like it was a see-saw. This squirrel tried to get as close as he could to the dogs. They went WILD with this behavior! I promised I would help them. I ran in the house to look for something to stop the tormenting. All I could find was some TUMS. I grabbed a handful and started tossing them towards him. (I don’t have a very good aim.) As I threw them, he looked to see what was flying by his head. It did not phase him. He never moved. I couldn’t think of anything else to get rid of him. I’m sure the neighbors would not approve of me getting a gun to shoot at the little darling because I may miss and hit a few of them, neighbors that is.
