Squirrel Gang Initiation

My husband believes that the squirrels of our back yard have a gang initiation right. A prospective member has to enter the yard, thereby drawing the attention of the Wonder Wieners, who survey their territory through the picture window, perched on the back of the sofa. Between the time it takes Coop and Isis to get down from the sofa and get out the dog door, said squirrel must find a spot and freeze there. This momentarily throws the dogs off track, as they can see movement, but are somwhat impaired when it comes to still objects. The brave rodent must stay frozen until the dogs lose interest and look away long enough to make a run for it, then has to clear the fence before either of the two pups can get a mouthful of tail fur. The score so far:

Squirrels - 256
Dogs - 1

You should post some pictures of it.

To be so lucky as to have time to hang out in my backyard, waiting for the shot, and then to have the talent to capture it, that is to dream.
