Squirrel Real Estate

Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your proficient doggie commentator Special Agent Chester L. W. Spaniel, live, and on location at the big silver maple tree. 

Look at this mess! Do you see all the leafy branches on the ground around the base of the tree? 

They're everywhere!

Where did all this mess come from, you ask? 

This, ladies and gentlemen, doggies and kitties, is the work of the Evil Squirrel Cartel! 

Do you see the nest up there? We haven't seen this kind of activity since Spring! 

It figures, since the Evil Squirrel Cartel has been amassing their nuts all summer. They must have accumulated enough for another down payment on their winter headquarters. Well, ghostwriter knows what to do about this: 

Meanwhile, I will perform a detailed ground search for traces of other rodent activity in the yard. 

A doggie's work is never done! 

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program for this TDB news update! 

Dad decided to get rid of those squirrels once and for all.

He says the wood underneath the squirrel nest will rot, and the branch might break and fall on someone. He got out the big ladder, put it right up to the Evil Squirrel Cartel's new condominium, and climbed up. He then knocked their entire nest right out of the tree! Hooray! 

Look look look! It's all gone. The squirrels were not home for this event, but we can imagine they won't be very happy their winter headquarters has disappeared! 

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program. 



  1. All you need is about 44 of our 195 kids plus 4 kittens and the hairless one, and you will never have another squirrel in your yard again, dad is peeved cos he liked feeding our one squirrel.

    PeeEss...We just loved the twirl a squirrel!!

  6. Do you think they might try to do more squatters rights in that tree again??

    Growlmy says she has seen red squirrels...the furry nasty-naughty-not-nice teeny ones...chew the neoghbor;s siding, OMD! We have some dead trees in our woodsy area, and they and many woodpeckers have made all kinds of drillings and chewings in them...presumably to get the worms, and maybe try and make a nest?? Those rascals were also nesting in the neighbor's catalpa tree...they were evicted and then they took up residence in their attic...far worse...sigh...I will make sure they nevfur try that here...

  7. Stoopid messy squirrels! Stay on them, Chester!

  8. Pawsome work on the squirrel cartel Chester, you showed 'em!
