Critters

Here is one of those stupid fat squirrels eating all the yummy corn off my Observation Deck.

Usually they travel in gangs, but today, there was just one.I don't approve. Why should they get to eat the yummy corn and Mango cannot? Its not right and I demanded to go out and show that squirrel what for.Squirrel be gone! Those blasted things do not seem to be terribly afraid of me. I hosed down that squirrel with my most menacing Mango stare. Hah! Squirrel be gone! You will not come on to my Observation Deck again!

[Mom - Mango can't be bothered to chase something that is more than six feet away from him, so the squirrels are pretty safe]

[Mom - Mango barely gets inside before the squirrels are back. No respect. Maybe we need to borrow a terrier]Mango Man! Whatever!

Hi, Mango!
The nerve of that squirrel!
I've never seen one but sure I'd love to chase one someday!

At least you have squirrels to chase! All we have are crows to chase out of the yard. We've never even seen a squirrel!

Those squirrels at your house sure have a lot of nerve, Mango! Your mom needs to feed them something they hate to teach them a lesson!

Love ya lots,

Damn squirrel! Mango, you're like Chloe. Chloe is soooo lazy to even get the treat on the floor that is one foot away from her. Gosh! She's sooo fat & lazy! Mango, you won't want to be like her so move your engine! You can catch that bugger!

Love licks,

I think I will ship Paris your way. She is an A1 world class squirrel hunter. Sometimes she is so busy chasing them she won't come in and eat her breakfast!!

I. HATE. SQUIRRELS. I wish I were at your house Mango...I would have caught that squirrel and we could have had a little snack. Well, I would've had a snack and you could have watched.

Hi Mango,

We have nasty squirrels that travel across the power line that is parallel to our back fence. How rude that they think they can enter our domain! Kylie has taken it upon herself to be the official backyard squirrel patrol dog. Those squirrels know not to travel down the fence or power pole into our domain.

Hey thanks for adding us to your list of friends! We like our nickname.!

OO! OO! OO! OO! Can I come help you chase squirrels? I LOVE to chase them and bark at them too! I caught one of Uncle Peter's guinea hens and almost caught a duck too, but Mommy made me put them back. Wah! They were SO much fun to chase that I can't wait to go to Uncle Peter's house again.

I took a memory photo of that squirrel. I haven't seen one yet, but when I do, I will be on alert. Not very scary only one of them. Buuutttt you said they sometimes travel in gangs???

Okay, so Mango, guess what? I caught one of those little critters once. Sure, he was probably injured in the first place, but I had one in my mouth. Woah, was that exciting! Except the damn thing kept wiggling and I kept having to drop him, and then I'd pick him up and he'd wiggle again. Then my people separated us and that was that. But I'm telling you, if you can get your lips on one, try it!

Mango, man are you so lucky to have squirrels to chase! We have kangaroos which I tried to chase once, but mum says they are much to big and dangerous for me to chase (she's a party pooper!)

Oh could we help you there. We used to eat a couple of tree rats a week at least, when we lived back at our farm.
You have to run, dog, RUN when you see an evil squirrellie, then just bite its little devil head off.
Call us. We're there for you.
