Is that a squirrel, a monkey? - NO that's Gracie!!

Just had to share . . . because I got a good laugh!!

We have squirrels living in our backyard and they cause MUCH heartache for Gracie!!! She can't stand to stay inside watching them through the door. She chases them constantly and even up a tree!! She completely jumped in the tree herself the other day and has done it ever since. I think the squirrels are deliberately try to harass her because the climb the tree and wait for Gracie to get close then they run up the tree when Gracie makes it over to it. Pretty funny!!!!

The first picture is Gracie on her way up, and the second is SUCCESS!!

Gracie will be 1 year old August 26th, yeahhhh!!

That is just too cute!! We have the squirrel issue here too. I am afraid of what would happen if Logan actually caught one!! They sit on my deck, right outside the window & sliding glass door, while my guys are flipping out.

I love the first one she looks like she is in mid-air

Oh I love it. And I agree, squirrels adore teasing dogs. I had a dachshund mix that figured out their route and surprised quite a few. I won't mention the baby bunnies he use to bring me as gifts outside my bedroom door when I lived in southern California. Imagine finding that prize without your glasses on the morning. EWWW.

Those photos are adorable! I love them.

My dogs are so unamused by the squirrels & birds of the backyard. We have a fountain out there that draws a lot of critters, including hummingbirds and dragonflies. The dogs almost always just park their butts on the ground and turn their nose to the place of the creatures and watch them, even if the squirrel is jumping from the fence, to the tree, to the arbor over their heads. They just sit and watch out of curiosity, but they don't care enough to try to follow them. Now cats? Cats make them curious enough to be chased out of the yard.

I would think they would bite, especially if they felt threatened.
