Saturday's Squirrel Story

With the arrival of the oppressive heat and humidity in Kansas, I now live under a self-imposed house containment (with Mom's stamp of approval). I spend 99.99999% of my time inside and don't go on any regular walks anymore. But I know that I need to remain a loyal and valued member of the OWAS ( Operationg-Whack-A-Squirrel. So I decided that I would take charge of keeping the homefront safe from those pesky squirrels.

What's that odor that is waking me up? Smells like Squirrel!!!

I'd better check this one out.


We may have to convene a meeting of the local OWAS chapter to question this critter on the whereabouts of our leader Tank. Meeting at our place at noon, maybe we can mull things over lunch.

Woos, Dakota

Umm... Dakota? Could I hold that squirrel for you? Just for a minute?!!?

Checkers said...

nice squirrel Dakota -

the Secret to our city is the Atomic Bomb!

Stella said...

Hi Dakota!

That is a mean looking squirrel you have there and I would be careful with him if I were you.

I am glad you have such a good comfy life for these hot days. My Mom didn't think there was anything that could slow me down but high temps can!


The Thundering Herd said...

Hanging out in the cool area helping to strategize is what we expect the older and wiser among us to do. Excellent intelligence work!

Martha Basset said...

Hi Dakota
We are on our way over for lunch to discuss the pesky squillie problem. Just keep that one talking....
We love you

Would this by any chance happen to be the famous "Trojan Aquirrel"?????

Princess Eva and Brice said...

We know you are the brains of the pack. You can't let yourself get too tired or the boys will just run around in circles not knowing what to do.

The toy should have been rubbed around in nuts and then maybe it would have tricked you more. Great toy. I love squirrels. I had one as a pet, when I was 6 yrs. old. She was an orphan, sick & took claim to us. Her wildness kicked in when better, so we released her back to where she belonged.

Jake of Florida said...

Hey, we have one of those creatures too!!! Do we have to report it to your group???

Sorry about the heat. It only gets to 90+ here and the mornings and evenings are still bearable.

Stay cool!!!

Wirey woofs to you all!!

Yup, You need to stay inside because it's not nice outside. Hope the meeting went well and decisions were made so you can destroy that imitation squirrel! Make sure you open it completely up and remove all of the furry inside parts!

Mango said...

You can practice your squirrel work with that decoy, no problem.

I am with you. When its hot, stay in the cool inside. Although I have tried to convince mom to leave the door open and let the cool air outside for me to enjoy there too.


Woodrow, Sweetie, MJ Campanella said...

hiya dakota - hope you had a wonderful weekend - you just gotta get the boys to do your bidding - i dont go out in the heat either i just send the boys after those squirrels


Angus Mhor said...

I agree, Dakota. It's too muy hot to be goin' outside. You need ice cubes in your waterbowl! The skwerls are way too cheeky for this heat.
