Day 786: Squirrel Saturday

I fink it is kinda squirrely that I am trapped inside on this beautiful Saturday wif the clear and quiet skies... but the lawn dude is here, makin lots of the noise and leavin the gate open.

So any way, that made me fink of the squirrel huntin I have been preoccupied wif this week.
When the back door opens I run out like a bull out of a chute and send those little pecan fiefs scurryin!
My "little" oak tree is one of their favorite escapes. They also like to take the good stuff up there and eat in the tree house. I have found peach pits, plum seeds, walnut shells and of course bushels of pecan shells underneaf  this tree!
This side, too.
And down here.
You see all these dark fings around the base of the tree? 
Last year's pecan crop that they have dug up and eaten.
Of course, they have also started robbin this year's crop.
I offer you Exhibit A. 
Toof marks identified.
There's also a few of these layin around. 
Will log into my Investigations Log for when I come across the naked bird.
Oh. And there is also this.
Bleu fur.
If only there was a market for this crop, me and the Mom would be rich!
 And the Bleu would never miss what we sold! Just sayin.

And now let's join the Saturday Pet Blogger Hop!

I fink you will find some very interestin tails told by some swell Pet Bloggers. And for details and rules on how to join the fun, please head over to Nigel's place at Life With Dogs!

Excellent squirrel patrol work.

P.S. Let the Bleu know that we can join in the fur producing factory.

The squirrels stole your nuts?! If that's not the worst thing I've heard about them yet! Oh, I wish I was there in your back yard.

We think there's definitely a market for floof out there!

Those sound like some very sneaky squirrels, I think I am missing one squirrel. Mayhe is down there with you? Chase him home, we need snother one to chase up here in Denver. We don't have any pecans, but we have lots of apples and the squirrels love them. And so do we. When we finish our dinner, we all run out and find an apple on the ground and have dessert.

We're with Mogley - the squirrels bring us apples, so, we think they are not so bad after all. Except for that time they started living in our house.
