While filling up the dogs’ water bowls this morning, I heard a loud thud. I looked around the yard and TWO squirrels had fallen out of a tree! I couldn’t believe it. I went over to them but they weren’t moving. Oh no! I ran in the house to get my cell phone (to call Michael) and when I got back they were gone. Yeah! But….then I saw one of them a little ways away and it wasn’t moving….only blinking its eyes. I didn’t know what to do.
I talked to it for a little while and it just keep looking at me, blinking its eyes. It was so pitiful!! I knew I couldn’t let the dogs out!! Finally, I moved really close and it jumped up and ran away, although limping. I was rejoicing!!
So, I think everything is ok and I go in the house to let the dogs out. I put them out too soon! As soon as the dogs were out, I see the squirrels on the fence. Arwen runs over and got a hold of one! I then chase Arwen who drops the squirrel and it runs up a tree. It appears to be fine. I’m thinking the other squirrel ran away also but, no, there it is in the neighbor’s yard–frozen to one spot and the dogs won’t stop barking at it. Dasher was furiously digging under the fence to get over there. I tried everything I could to bring them in, even shoving a treat right under their noses haha. Finally, I went in, got their leashes and brought them in.
I just checked a minute ago and the squirrels seem to be gone. What a crazy morning!!!
PS: I am so thankful I was out there when they fell; otherwise I would have just let the dogs out and those squirrels would have been dead. God is good!!
