Go get ’em

I can sit for hours looking out at the front yard

SAM_0225SAM_0658What am I observing? Harris’ antelope ground squirrels like this one.

HarrisThey’re so quick, I can’t get a good photo of them so I had to borrow an image from the web. I can see them and their holes

SAM_0453but They won’t let me at them to dig them up. Occasionally, I’m allowed in front, but if I do the squirrels or their holes, it’s right back inside again.



This is unfair. They let this gopher snake (non-venomous and not dangerous) have a squirrel lunch.

SAM_0893 SAM_0892They treat something They don’t even know better than They treat me. Treat me? I’m hungry. Be back soon after begging and a treat.

  1. PROTEST.. that is so unfair Kyla, that slither gets to lunch and you don’t.. xx0xx

  2. Slither is just creepy. I am not sure you live on earth with those pictures. Can’t you just have ordinary chipmunks and little garden snakes. Does your sidewalk fold up at night? It looks like plastic or rubber.

  3. Shocking you should go on a snuggle strike! Refuse to snuggle them until you are given equal rights! Whee probably wouldn’t last long at this but soon they’ll be begging you!

  4. Oh Kyla, they should let you chase the squirrels! Wooooowooooooo!

  5. I hope you got more than one treat. It’s only fair.

    Have a woof woof day. My best to your human. 🙂

  6. Now that is just WRONG! You’re a scottie and you’re supposed to chase little furry things!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  7. Amazing you caught the snake going in the hole!

  8. Kyla, why does it look like you are wearing a tin foil hat in the first picture?

  9. OMD! Snake!!!!!!! Who cares about them furry rats you gots snakes yuck kill them. For killing the snakes, you should be rewarded with lots and lots of treats.

    Aroo to you,

  10. Hmmm…we had no idea squirrels burrowed underground. This Arizona of yours is a very, very interesting place Kyla.
    Wally & Sammy
    P.S. did you get a treat?

  11. So, what’s that on your head my Kyla friend?

  12. That little guy is cute…kind of a cross between a squirrel and a chipmunk…With all that action out in your yard no wonder you’re parked by that window…I only get to see ducks

  13. Ahhh! We don’t like snakes…be careful around them, Kyla! Much love, The Scottie Mom.
