Dakota and the Squirrels

Dakota AKA The KING is a RAT
Terrier.
He was named justly so since he was
breed to hunt rats, and critters
such as them....like a squirrel.
 
Now keep in mind that The KING has put
on some weight and so he does not
run near fast enough to catch the squirrel before
they run up the tree.
But, Dakota thinks the use of a lawn chair
will help him in the aid of catching that
said squirrel.
 
 
He can even sat down on the job!

 
"Hey wait, where are you going? If you move
to that tree I can't continue to sat in the chair"!!

 
Now to tell a funny story on Dakota...
Last week while at my mom's he goes to the
back screen door and with the other dogs he
begins to bark. Mom lets him out and she
said he was running so fast that his feet
never touched the steps as he flew off
the deck!
I can see that now.
There were a couple of squirrel in her backyard that
he had his sites set on.
He hits the yard running, they take off running,
they manage to squeeze through the diamond shaped
openings on the fence and keep going.
I guess Dakota either did not stop to think
or just figured he could make it through also.
 
BAM! Knocked him back about six
or seven inches.....
LOL...way to go KING.
 
Yesterday here in Nashville it was 70 degrees,
4 days before Christmas....today, high of
35 degrees. Crazy weather.
 
Dakota and I went walking through the yard and
I look up and spy this...
It was hard to tell what it was at first but
then I realized it was a SQUIRREL
hugging the branch....
first thought was, is he hiding from
Dakota?

 
Then later in the day off the deck I
see this guy hiding while he feeds
off the birdfeed!
 
He saw me and jumped down and
out Dakota went....
not fast enough yet again.

 
Thank you for stopping in,
Pam
