the raw peanut thing someone suggest, and they love it. I watch them everymorning while I'm sitting here at my desk. Well just now I looked out and there are now three squirrels. It's growing! Thanks to whoever gave me that tip. I love to watch them. The two smaller ones are a bit skitish. If Ariel walks up to the door they will run away. The big one won't run even when I want him to. If the dogs need to go out and he's there I have to knock on the door and jiggle the handle just to get him off the ground. He can outrun the smaller dogs for sure, but I'm not sure about Rusty, and I'm not even going to think about risking it with Lady! Anyway thanks.
The squirrels in my back yard laugh at Toby. They don't even bother to run up the tree but about 5 feet when he chases them. Toby thinks he is the squirrel police and goes out barking at them every morning to keep them all in order.
When I was a kid, we used to throw the squirels doughnuts. (Didn't realize it was bad for them, then) It was so funny to see these chubby little squirrels standing on hour porch eating a doughnut. My dad used to say, "why don't you give 'em a cup o'coffee, too.
LOL Scout. I have a mental picture of all the bears running when it thunders. We are supposed to have some big thunderstorms tonight. I know Rusty will be freaking out, and I guess we'll find out if Lady is scared of thunder too.
