I witnessed this inter-action recently, laughing at the silly squirrel and dog comedy act.
Up Cort leaps as little grey squirrel (LGS) scurries just far enough down the post to be out of reach.
This little game went on and on for several minutes, up and down, down and up, back and forth.
I was starting to wonder when LGS was going to get tired of the barking, jumping, obnoxious dog and head off down the street.
LGS stopped the dog in a most unexpected manner.
He leaped off the fence post.... right into my dog's large open mouth.
Shocking me but pleasing the dog, I am sure. I dropped my camera, so have no photo to document the squirrel's suicide leap. I hollered, "DROP IT CORT!" -and he did!- I swear the dog gave me a look that loudly asked, "are you nuts? "
No more 'sicking' dog on squirrels........
