Enemies

Enemies

Beans has a foe. We recently discovered this as there have been mornings when she will bark incessantly for what we thought was no reason at all but Alex finally figured out what’s been setting her off. Squirrels. Two in particular who like to climb the power pole in our back yard and hand out on the wires. I felt bad for those rodents (are they rodents?) at first but now I kinda hope one falls off the wire into our backyard. Okay, fans of The Simpsons will understand when I say that these squirrels are like that baby with the unibrow. You know, the one that glares at Maggie begging for a fight? That’s exactly what these squirrels are to our Beans. I swear one gave her the stink eye the other day. Bean’s may be rough looking but she is such a daddy’s girl and super sweet so when she growls and barks you know she’s pissed. And for good reason. How dare these animals invade her territory and taunt her with menacing glares. Plus they eat the fruit from our peach trees. Rascals.
 
Porkchop is usually resting on the dog pillow while all this is happening. His enemies are the small birds that come into the yard. He chases them around but has yet to catch one (although Beans has and it was terrifying.)
 
Anyways, I’m with Beans on this one. Squirrels Suck.
