This is me and Dave from the first walk, above. The snow was just starting to come down real good but there wasn't much on the ground yet. We stopped to check out the pine trees. There's a squirrel who lives in there who usually pops out to say "hi". He's a cute little guy with a shorter tail than normal. We call him Short Round. I'm torn between thinking he's a cool guy who should join our pack to thinking he's a spy-squirrel! Anyway, we checked in there, but didn't see him.
Here are a few pix from the second walk below. You can see the snow is deeper.
And guess who I thought I saw on the way home?
Hey! Short Round! Are you up there?
Seriously, pal! Are ya?
Ammy, can you see him?
Yes, Zim, I think I do!
I wanted to wait for him to come down. He never did, though, and Dad didn't really want to hang out in the 20-something degree wind-chill. I'm not sure why not.
I wanted to invite Short Round over today! You know why? It's my Honorary Birthday! Yep, since Mom and Dad don't know when any of our real birthdays are (except for Am's), we celebrate an honorary birthday that they chose AND we celebrate our anniversary -- the anniversary of the day we were adopted! (My Zim-aversary is in August!) Anyroo... I am now maybe 7 years old! Or as Mom says... "7 years old, going on 8 months". Ha roo roo roo! Everypup is invited over for a party! :)
Play bows and Happy 2007!
PS: Is it still considered tree-ing a squirrel if he goes up a utility pole?
