Lets Run and Run and Run


Scurrying across the moss covered tree trunk, the little rascal had done it again.  

There he was sitting out in the open just waiting for Copper...taunting him.

Wriggling as he nibbled, it was as if he was saying...



Come on you old four legged has been.  Come and get me!






Oops!  I didn't think he heard me!!


Going up....


Okay, it's safe now.  He's old and tired
 and went around the corner to rest.


Here's the one I worry about.
  This one never sleeps.
  She's always watching me!!



Did I tell you that we, American Red Squirrels...also known as pine squirrels...have a nest in the woods?
Yep. There's a bunch of us...a whole village.
And believe me when I tell you we defend our territory!!
We'll drive these two dogs crazy all summer...LOL!



Sharing a little entertainment with you and those at

I LOVE seeing your red squirrels. They are the cutest little things.

Some of that family has made it to our backyard and I always know when a 'red' is around from the chatter they make. They do like to taunt the dogs!

Sandra said...

we have squirrels, possums and raccoon to taunt our dogs and like you they make good post fodder and photos to... i love those little red squirrels and of course the two watchers

Chatty Crone said...

Love it - have they ever caught one? What is that little blue house under the tree?

so darn cute!

Nina said...

Fantastic captures! The squirrel is so sweet, I also love the photo where you see just the alerted ears of your sweet dog :-)
I hope to photograph a squirrel this summer - that will be my first one! :)

So far the only animals that taunt my dogs are the cats. LOL

We do not have a single red squirrel around here! At least I have never seen one. We have lots and lots of greys though I think the reds are so much prettier, especially their ears.

Ann said...

Love the mosaics. Those squirrels are going to get a little too cocky one of these days and that old girl is gonna catch them...lol

Your dog's ears are adorable! And great shots of the squirrel too.

How wonderful to have red squirrels sharing your space.
Those pictures are fabulous as are the colours.
Thank you for sharing.

Those are amazing photos. What a little charmer your squirrel is. So's Copper, of course!

Copper and Moon will be busy outdoors keeping this pesky fellow at bay. We only have grey squirrels around our yard and they are just as annoying.
