Mackey and The Giant Squirrel

Hi Bloggers, it's me Mackey. I have an exciting story to tell you.
I spend lots and lots of time watching squirrels thru the window. When I see one heading for the bird feeders I bark really loudly to warn Mom and Dad. Sometimes Dad will open the door and let me chase them away from the feeders. I'd like to catch one. My sister Sydney has caught two of them and I think I'm just as good a hunter as she is. So far I haven't had any success. They run into the trees as soon as they see me. Mom says if I was a little quieter I'd have a better chance but I get so excited that I forget and start barking.
Well, the other night Mom got ready to take Norma Jean and me outside to pee before going to bed. She snapped my leash on and opened the front door. There in the bird feeder sat the biggest squirrel I'd ever seen. It was bigger than me and it just sat there looking at us.
It seemed to be a very responsible giant squirrel because it was wearing a mask and it followed social distancing, keeping at least six feet away from us at all times. I tried to get closer but it climbed down off the deck and went under the porch. I tried to pull Mom in that direction but she wouldn't budge. As soon as I peed, she dragged me back inside.
 I thought about that giant squirrel all the next day and that night when it was time to go out before bed, I was hoping to see it again. It wasn't there but there were three little masked squirrels in the feeder instead. Two of them ran away but the third one laid down in the feeder and waited for us to leave. I stood there looking at him but Mom wouldn't let me get close.
 I'm not sure I could handle that big giant squirrel, but I bet I could catch a little one, especially if he just laid still and didn't run. Have you ever seen a giant squirrel bigger than me?
 Keep wagging, Mackey

That sure is a big and fat squirrel, Mackey. We haven't seen any here with masks, but we will have to check at night. Maybe they wait until it is dark to put them on:)

That is exciting. Beware of the giant squirrel. That kind fights back.

I'm not sure you want to mess with a raccoon, Makey. I think a "real" squirrel might be the better choice to go after.

Those are some giant squirrels, all right! Thatcher went out for his after dinner walk last week, and stayed outside for a few minutes. He isn't leashed, because our yard is fenced. Anyway, after a few minutes, he came trotting in with a bunny and presented it to Patrick. I was not amused. I'm sure Mom would not be amused by your catching a giant squirrel, either. But good job guarding your home!
