I just got home from work and realized that my dog was freaking out in the back yard. There was a loud chirping accompanying this freaking out and I assumed that there was a magpie in the back yard taunting my dog... again. I looked through the back door and saw that my dog had something cornered in the tall grass that my husband needs to cut badly. Hint hint. I went into the back yard to rescue the "bird" and it began to run around chasing my dog. The dog was also chasing the critter at the same time so you can imagine the mayhem that was going on. So you know that thing that all the dogs do in the movie Up? You know when they all yell SQUIRREL and look around at the same time. Well it was just like that, accept that my dog had an actual squirrel (not a bird) cornered in the back yard. Needless to say you all would have been very amused had you seen me trying to lure my dog away from said squirrel.
And no the bologna, that I was using for this purpose did not work!
I don't know who was more worn out by this experience, the dog, the squirrel,
or ME!

The visual this created in my mind is hysterical!
You prolly need to rest, put up your feet and have a diet coke to recover : )

Your dog better be glad he didn't get too close to the squirrel because they can be pretty vicious with their claws and teeth. I agree that making the mental picture in my head was kind of funny.

And they can carry rabies! But it was pretty funny that the dog had the squirrel cornered. It will have more respect to stay out of your yard now, LOL!!
