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?
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.
