Ditzy Squirrels

 Hello everyone. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your alert doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

We've been getting a dusting of snow every few days. Usually it melts pretty quickly. That hasn't stopped our local chapter of the Evil Squirrel Cartel! They've been out every single day snarfing up the seeds the birdies drop from the feeders. In fact, they're getting pretty fat! But lately they've decided the seeds on the ground are not enough for them. So they tried to break into our squirrel proof feeders. 

Here is Madame Curie Potato-Chips in her first attempt. That's Einstein Dingaling on the ground underneath.

Hey what are you looking at?

Dingaling had enough smarts to get out from underneath, just in case his big, and we mean BIG, sister falls off. Here's a picture that shows that, as Potato-Chips hangs on the feeder, the seed ports close. She tried chewing on them, but they're made of metal. 




  1. Chester your title speaks truthful volumes!!!
    And your photos bravo bravo to the photographer for the actions shots

  2. Good thing you have that squirrel proof feeder. Madame Curie Potato-Chips sure gave it a good try.

  3. You sure have some nutsy squirrels in your yard, Chester!

  4. That is a cool feeder to keep the squirrels out. Lady doesn't mind having them around.

  5. Those squirrels will do anything to get at that seed. Keep your eyes on them, Chester - somebody has to do it.

  6. We have a branch of the Crafty and Evil Squirrel Cartel that frolics and practices their best acrobatic moves on our squirrel-proof feeders too. This weekend, I even bought a "squirrel baffle" to keep them away from the suet that they eat like tic-tacs! We'll see how it all goes, and if we can keep Bandit the Racoon from carrying the feeder away again. It's all a conspiracy. :-)

    And by the way, we're supposed to get snow this week - I hope we get some!!

  7. You have won an important battle in the squirrel war.

  8. BOL! Man those stoooopid tree rats just never learn! Wells, maybe she got a teeth-grinding instead...hehehe serves her right! I almost gots one yesterday....sigh

  9. Seeds aren't even that delicious. (Don't ask how I know.) Can't tell that to those guys, I guess... Squirrels. Am I right?

    Love and licks,

  10. Oh! Boy! Those squirrels are so big! Ours are tiny compared to those guys! Do you ever chase them?
