The CHASE!

So the other day, Mimi, Mom, Uncle S. and I went to Mounds Park for some rainy hiking. Since it was deserted, mom let me off my leash in the picnic area to run around. There were some SQUIRRELS running around...


We really don't have squirrels in our neighborhood, so I wasn't sure what it was! I was a little freaked out at first, but then I got REALLY brave...

Ignore mom screaming and wigging out. She's crazy.

I was only trying to play with him! I guess he wasn't interested. Mom was worried that I might try to eat him like daddy's relatives would. Yuck!

Happy Sunday everyone!

HA!! Totally Awesome! That baby squirrel had no clue. Send that 2nd one to America's Funniest Home videos and you'll win 10 Grand.

SO freaking funny!!!

Obviously, the squirrel didn't consider Sal too much of a threat!

OMG that is soooo adorable!!!! Salinger, dude, you just wanted to play but that silly squirrel kept running away from you. Of course it was fun to listen to your mom alternate from being freaked that the squirrel would bite you to encouraging you on to get him! Heeeeee such fun!

Stubby said...

Salinger dude! Your mom is such a spaz! You could have caught that squirrel if you weren't weighed down by your raincoat.

You need to get out more.

WOWZA! You really wore that squirrel out! Underneath that little, yellow rain slicker is the heart of a wolf!

Murphy Dogg said...

Wow, that squirrel had you going around in circles. He must have been kinda dumb, cuz that tree was right there. Either dumb or he was enjoying messing with you. Evil squirrel.

Dutch the Pug said...

Wow, that is the dumbest squirrel I have ever seen! I think he forgot that he could climb the tree. Probably because he was distracted by your heavy-breathing-down-his-neck chase. Nice job, Salinger.

We've had some incidents in the back yard where Wendell took off chasing a rabbit. They're fast, but Wendell's faster. If not for the fact that they can slip out under the fence, he'd have had some rabbit stew.

Wow Salinger you are sooooo brave, maybe too brave. You could've gotten bitten buddy. It looks like you two were having a fun time playing tho. Great video.

Lots of Licks,

LOL Oh my gosh, that just made my morning!

I really thought you were going to get him Sal!

PS the raincoat is SOOO cute!

Rachel said...

ohmigosh, that's hilarious. The squirrel must have thought they were playing too or else I think he would have gone up that tree a lot earlier. how funny....I would have been freaking out too...

Rosie said...

Hahahaha - we just saw this too funny. I must say that was mighty brave of you S-Dog going after that squirrel - just lose the raincoat and you might just get your pair back.

Lex said...

OMG i cannot believe how close to him you got!! I think that squirrel was screwing around with you!!

Nevis said...

that is so funny! You would have caught that squirrel if your raincoat hadn't been restricting your lightning reflexes :)

If you ever want to chase squirrels, come over for a visit, we have tons of them in the back yard. I make sure I bark alot at them so mom and dad know they are there.
