One down

While I may have suspended my squirrel eradication campaign, I neglected to notify junior gardener number two of the change in policy.



Isn't she a sweetheart?

Addie achieved her second career kill this morning when a very stupid squirrel decided to re-enter the yard after having been chased out. On re-entry, he made it to the safety of the oak tree. But rather than waiting for me to get sick of the dogs barking and bring them inside, like the smart squirrels do, he bolted for the fence and never made it.

Retrieving a squirrel from a terrier is not an easy task, but here are some tips. If you can get the other terrier indoors, the first one will bring the squirrel right up to you to show it to you and receive full credit. She will not let you hold it, however, until you pick her up by her hind legs and hang her upside down.

How do you think Addie would be with hispid cotton rats? They eat my vegs. They can hollow out an eggplant in no time.

Addie is available at very reasonable hourly rates for the removable of a wide variety of scurrying little bastards.

Awesome. My dog just looks at the squirrels. Watches them climb into the garden, nibble squash...If gas prices were less I might consider driving down there to rent you dog for the day!
