Cousin of the Rat but Cuter

thanks to Debbie Smyth for hosting Six Word Saturday

Today in High Park the squirrels were out and about, running up and down trees and through the tall grasses. I had my telephoto lens with me and was able to capture these beauties.

Fed Up…..

….with all the folks trying to feed him from their hands

This little guy decided to go back to chewing on bark rather than approach the kids trying to feed him from their hands.

Day 20 of Becky B’s January Squares


Our PUPs for January Squares

thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares

In our extended family we have three special pUPs. You’ve seen all of them at one time or another on my blog. Recently I posted a photo of Olive jumping up on the beach and I explained to some of you that Olive needed surgery. Well here she is back from the vet hospital. She ruptured a disc in her neck and after the surgery her prognosis is good. No jumping or running for awhile. That will be hard for this little girl.

The other two dogs are Frances who is 14 and Lucy who is 12 1/2. Their days consist of sleeping, sleeping, sleeping and eating and then sleeping some more.

Jumping Up in the Air – Day 6

….thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares

Olive loves to jump. How do you discourage that behaviour after one (Olive) slips a disc. The pain meds and muscle relaxants have slowed her down somewhat but I think this jumping thing is in the Frenchie DNA.


The Eyes Have It

….thanks to Becky B for hosting kindasquare for the month of October

I love or take kindly to the eyes of animals and birds. I often wonder what they’re thinking and try to see if there are any clues in the eyes.
