Watch Dogs

We have bird feeders in our yard, and the local squirrels have developed a routine of regularly showing up for lunch. Our dogs, Otis and Snickers, are on to the squirrels, though, and as lunchtime approaches, the dogs start pacing back and forth to the screen door, their ears perked, watching for the intruders.

As soon as we open the door, the dogs rush out, and the chase is on. Luckily, they have never caught a squirrel, because the squirrels waste no time making their exit. However, they do sometimes run up on one of the buildings and tease the dogs.

Otis, a 10-year-old Westie, and Snickers, a 4-year-old Yorkie, always keep us entertained!
