We interrupt this program for a fast breaking TDB Special Report. I'm your roving doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.
We have not seen the squirrels, Fatty White-Ears or alias Twinkletoes, since last week!

While this is a good thing—they're not raiding the birdie feeders—it kind of makes us wonder. But yesterday ghostwriter saw an interesting sight. There was a big disturbance in the top of the silver maple tree. Out of the corner of her eye for a split second, she saw a squirrel leaping down the branches with a big hawk after it! The hawk looked like the Cooper's hawk that we've spotted occasionally in our neighborhood. Ghostwriter said she thinks the squirrel got away into the Arbor Vitae Luxury Sparrow Apartment Complex bushes, but she couldn't be sure.
On the 20th we found a clump of robin feathers on the grass in our yard, which confirms that a hawk has been hunting in our area. The Stodgy Robin Society could not be reached for comment on the identity of the unfortunate robin.
Please stay tuned for further reports.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled program now in progress.
(Oh, it's one of my favorite videos! Go Diesel!)
