Lil’ buddy

These guys have finally come out for spring, and so the next several months of our lives will be filled with their shrill, incessant chirping, a technique they use to mock the dogs. Chuck has learned to ignore them, but Coco… that dog would spend hours of her life running circles around the backyard in pursuit of squirrels if we’d let her. Consequently, I remain in a heightened state of anger at the squirrels and often find myself yelling obscenities in the backyard at no one in particular. Which is to say that the squirrels have had no discernible effect on my normal behavior.
