  1. Lulu: “Squiiiiiiiiiiiii—”
    Charlee: “Lulu!”
    Lulu: “—iiiiiiiii—”
    Chaplin: “What’s going on?”
    Charlee: “Lulu sees a squirrel and she’s yelling at it.”
    Lulu: “—iiiiiiiiiiiii—”
    Chaplin: “How long do you think she can keep going for?”
    Charlee: “I don’t know. Could be a while.”
    Lulu: “—iiiiiiiiiii—”
    Charlee: “Maybe we should just take a nap until she finishes.”

  2. Thankfully we do not have this problem here and – to be honest – a Kangaroo is just too big and too powerful to mess around with…

    1. My sympathies to Mr. Ron, having been pulled down more than once during a squirrel chase.

        1. Whenever there are squirrels around, dogs seem to develop all kinds of ‘big-dog’ abilities.

  3. Gurl, you seem awfully calm there!!!!! I would have been doin’, what Ma calls the ‘flying squirrel’ stance! (it’s when I pull and lunge so hard that my front leggies lift and spread out like a …you guessed it…a flying squirrel! BOL!!!!) Hey, if you needs backup just lets me know….I bets Norman is NO help in this kind of situation….🤣

    1. Are you kidding? Norman has taken up wingman status forElsa, helping out on squirrel hunts as well as protecting her from passing dogs who ‘for some strange reason’ aren’t fans of Elsa’s. 😆

    1. Rude indeed! Barking, snarling, flying, Elsa covers all the bases with that kind of rudeness!

    1. Squirrels and Elsa have a love/hate relationship. They love to taunt her and she hates them. 😂

    1. oh and Cole caught one once… surprised all of us including the squirrel, maybe not Cole who knew how fast he was. I yelled drop! and he spat it out, it ran off, Cole got a rabies booster because of scratches though

      1. This morning’s adventure was the closest encounter of all. Silly squirrel wouldn’t go up high in the tree.

  4. I see Elsa doesn’t care for tree rats either. Our Angel Little Bit loved to bark them up.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Scritches to the pups and a smooch to Norman. ♥

    1. They drive Elsa in particular crazy. This guy was so close to ‘buying the farm.’

  5. The Poodle and his human concurs. These “tree rats” are mighty skilled poodle-taunters and even in his arthritic state, my boy will launch into hyper-drive in his quest to catch him a tree rat.

    1. Add the 87-lb. slingshot on the other side and all bets are off for the my safety. None of us are fans, but especially me. I’ve been upended too many times hanging on for dear life. Doggone it, doesn’t seem fair those rats seem to enjoy all that taunting.

    1. He was definitely playing with fire. Elsa loses her mind whenever there are squirrels around and I’m lucky she didn’t pull me down.

  6. We love those little guys – we have a “bumper crop” of them this year too. Sitting on the porch there was a string of TEN squirrels that ran in a line right across our front yard! WILD!

    Hugs, Pam (and Teddy too – who did not chase them!)

    1. Ten in a row…yikes!! Elsa has a VERY high prey drive and encountering them sends her into orbit. I was barely able to keep her from catching this little thug who apparently has a death wish around dogs.

    1. This guy barely ran up the tree. I was stunned at his brazen attitude around the Jaws of Death. 🤣

Feel free to bark your thoughts...but no growling please.
