Squirrel Chaser


 
A dog lives there in that house
by the two hickory nut trees.
She’s about our size and the same
color. She thinks she owns the place.
Just play along, run when she comes
chasing out the door.  It doesn’t hurt
for us to give her a little thrill.  She’s
cute, but dumb as a tree limb.  She
doesn’t get it that she’s been chasing
us all her life and never been close. 
Poor dumb animal. Here she comes,
you two run and I’ll watch this time.
This dog cracks me up!

Ah, yes. What must the squirrels think, those funny acrobats in the treetops.

A fun poem story from the squirrels' point of view. I always knew they had as much fun as the dogs.

It does make me miss my Adi (our beagle dog) who must have chased over a thousand in her life.
Adi died September 17, 2012.

LOL Judy! You really make me think I was in the heads of the squirrels. And poor little Lexie! You'd think after all this time she would give up. I guess hope never dies in a dog.
