Isabella's Argument With A Squirrel
Isabella was outside happily playing when this squirrel high up in a tree started angrily chattering down at her. It had some kind of nut in its mouth and decided it had to protect its new-found meal from all comers, and Isabella happened to end up right in the squirrel's line of fire.
The squirrel vented its anger on this poor big half Great Dane, and she had no choice but to retaliate. The squirrel chattered at her and she barked back at the squirrel. And Ratty ran to get his camera!
I got back out just in time to catch the tail end of this battle of wills. I don't think there was really a winner. The fight just kind of died out after they realized there would be no actual violence involved.
This all happened a few days ago. And the very next day after that I had Isabella out in the front of the house on her chain when she saw this same angry little squirrel crossing the street. She tore off after him as if that squirrel's life depended on it, and it did!
Lucky for the squirrel, he made it up that same tree and out of sight. Isabella was not through though. She sat under that tree and waited. Ever since then she goes over to that tree and waits for the squirrel now. She is now obsessed with catching her little aggressor. He better hope she never does.
flights to New Zealand. I don't know if they have squirrels there, but hopefully their animals are smart enough not to start an argument with a dingo.
Isabella is kind of a big one for a squirrel to take on, and I think she's a little too good at catching little critters. I'd hate to go out one day and find her playing with the squirrel. I'll have to keep an eye on her for awhile I guess.
And now we come to the end. See, I told you it would be fun. You got an argument, some great pictures, Rat TV, and even a little ad. Fun, fun, fun! Humor me! I'll be back next time with something I hope you'll really like! No moose and squirrel though.They were in this post.
