Fishing with Squirrels

Yesterday, Gabbie came over to play and brought her favorite squirrel toy. The thing is like a fishing pole with a stuffed squirrel tied to the end of the line, and it's really awe-inspiring to watch Gabbie play with it. She's faster than any dog her size could imaginably be!

At first Charlie was afraid of the toy and wouldn't go anywhere near it. But he gradually warmed up to it and began chasing it, too. Then Gabbie joined in and it became a tug-of-squirrel game.

Oh, save me from the scary squirrel.

Hmmmm... Gabbie likes it.

Maybe it's not too scary...

Hey, this is kind of fun!

The fun heats up.

Mmmm... tasty squirrel, freshly caught.

Happy weekend, everyone!

I bet you two are having lots and lots of fun with that squirrel! I wish I could join in the play!

Maybe that would work for my dogs. They have become serial killers and seriously diminishing the magpie population.

Hi, Charlie
Sure you had to be cautious!! Those squirrels are mean! Glad at the end you had great time playing with Gabbie
Have a good night

Hi Charlie
You remind me of Hobson .. he's very cautious. When he bites my ears and tries to play with me, I run on top of the water tank coz he's too scared to follow me. I don't have any fear, and mum says this is my problem. It's best to be cautious until you're sure. It's toad time again and I'm back on a lead (sigh !!!)
Love from Hammer

Hey Charlies,

Saw your customers pics overs at Cooools!

I wish they had a 'Fishin' for Voles' games. I barked about your story over at Ivy's place,

I like Chucktobers.
