OWAS - Did Dexter go to Florida??

This morning we received an email from a neighbor. It had a series of 4 pictures showing a squirrel rescuing it's baby from the "paws" of a dog that upon first glance we thought was Dexter. Unfortunately stooopid Blogger/satellite is giving us fits this morning on our uploads. Must be a cloud out there somewhere blocking us. The momma squirrel was desperate to get her baby out of the clutches of the inquisitive dog - and he wasn't even carrying the OWAS hammer or wearing the official logo. Obviously there are a lot of dogs out there working undercover.

We observed a squirrel running a reconissance mission about noon yesterday. Our ferocious barking scared it back into hiding.

Have a Magnificent Monday,
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Good job and I for one sleep better at night(and most of the day) knowing that you are out there protecting us from the furry rodents.

Hee hee. "Javasit, Javaheel." We have similar commands here.

I have overheard momma say that Mango is as dumb as a bag of rocks, so you certainly aren't hurting MY feelings by pointing out how smart I am.

Could be Dexter - maybe he will tell us about it on his next post.

Blogger can be really tough sometimes.

We heard a Mama Tree Rat is just like a Mama Bear, those pikchurs are proof of that. Thanks for the warning!

What a remarkable photo. Just goes to show you that a mother's love will bring her to battle even the largest foe.

Wow - that is one determined squirrel - well, I always knew they took care of their own - I can admire the enemy for that - but i will still chase those little buggers up a tree.

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy
