Patrolling the Yard

In our computer room, there is a window that leads to the side yard. Often, our neighbors will sit in their backyard that borders our property, and Gus and Waldo often go and greet them.

It is not a surprise to find Waldo in this position:


After several days of him at his sentry post, I began to wonder why he was so fixated on the neighbors! He would often stand there and whine or bark--an irritating habit I could not understand. Until one day I took a glance outside and saw for myself what was irritating Waldo. Take a look for yourself:




Poor guy! That tree used to be in our backyard, squirrel-free. But my husband moved our fence (the dogs also used to play chase around it, and there was no grass left), and now he is unable to defend his territory from the eeevil invaders!

My office has a window that Moose likes to stand and look out of too. It is good to be tall! Definitely enlist in Tank's Squirrel Army!

If the tree is on your side of the property how come you moved the fence?
We would all be staring out of the window too Waldo. That squirrel would drive us to distraction.

Waldo hates the YouTube on-screen display! You go get it Waldo!

Oh, and possibly he also hates the squirrel.

Honey the Great Dane said...

Ha! HA! I like the way you were bouncing by the tree, Waldo...I've never seen a squirrel - we don't have them here in New Zealand but I know a lot of my blog friends go mad for them! Hey - you should notify Mango - he's part of some big Anti-Squirrel Army thing!

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

People think kitties are doggies worst enemies - they're wrong - Squirrels are the worst!

There's a way of taking back territory, dig under fence and chase bad squirrel away. That's what we've done to our fences! :p

AAARrrrghh... MORE Squirrels!!! How can ANYONE just QUIT! We MUST catch and destroy those nasty creatures! They are EVERYWHERE!!!
There was even a report a few years back that said squirrels were chewing holes in car hoses in Yosemite!

Someone else needs to start another Operation to get rid of them! Only by a concerted effort can it be done! Mango, apparently has friendly squirrels and has a truce going on in his area now, but we are still at war in Corgi Country! (See our last several blogs)
