More Squirrels?!

Post by We5Kings » 25 Jun 2017, 15:18

Ok, is it just here, or are there LOADS of grey squirrels this year! They drive Dude nutz, but this year it's beyond a joke! :roll:
We are used to the routine : go out in garden, chase the odd squirrel up a tree, sit and bark at them then come in when I say "biscuits!"
But this year the pesky things are everywhere! This morning on our first walk, I opened the front door and there was one sitting on the front doorstep!! Dude did one of those "What the?...." then attempted to drag me off my feet to get at it ( he failed to do any damage to me or the squirrel)
Is it just here in Somerset that we have SO MANY??? Anny

I'm not sure about the Greys.

I live just outside the HIghlands of Scotland and we have red squirrels round here who are rather timid. Seeing one is always a treat. :D

Oh the reds are lovely! Never see them here. We used to see them in The Isle Of Wight on holiday when I was young. And Mum used to see them at her Granny's house in Finzean.
The greys are huge, bold and plentiful!
It's very tricky to teach Dude to stop chasing them. We are doing better at getting him to stop chasing some( not all) cats, but squirrels are The Enemy! :twisted: Anny

Yes! My great granny was a Farquharson from Finzean! I've never been there, but Mum used to wax lyrical about it :D
