Our Squirrel Tree for the Holidays

Posted by Francesca

Woops!  With all of the holiday excitement, followed by the blizzard, we, Frenchies, forgot these photos were on the memory card in our camera.  We meant to post them before Christmas, but better late, than never, right?

Franny!  Are you seeing what I'm seeing?

What have the squirrels done to our squirrel tree?  Why have they decorated it with those red balls?

Sharkey!  Those varmints even wrapped the trunk and branches with strings of lights.

Like the balls, they appear to be red lights.

Here's the plug, Francesca!  When connected, this old apple tree will be as bright as Mars at night!

But, Sharkey, what does all of this mean?  Do they think they can deter us from chasing them with all of this holiday cheer?

Let me see if I can find out.  Hello!  Mr Squirrel?  You know by now that this is our squirrel tree and that we love chasing you up on it.  Just what are you up to with all the decor?

Sharkey, maybe they think that we'll slack off with the chasing by decorating the tree so nicely for the holidays.  You know, peace on earth and good will towards squirrels?

Hey, squirrel!  You can't hide in there forever, you know!  We need some answers!

Are you hearing anything, Sharkey?  Holiday, or no holiday, squirrels need chasing.  That's just the way it is.

But, just think about it for a minute, Franny.  The squirrels really went all out with this and it is very pretty.  Let's just give them a little break for now.

  • Never trust a squirrel! They're trying to lull you three into a mellow state thus letting them run free on the farm. Stay frosty (in this weather that's not too hard to do. :grin: )

    The look of determination on your sweet faces is priceless especially in photos #9 and 10. Right Sharkey, like the squirrels are going to come out and have a pow wow with you. Franny, your look says, "Sooner or later squirrels what goes up must come down"

    Does GK chase squirrels around too? I hope everyone out there in DW land has a fun weekend. :smile:

  • no pictures coming up.

  • It is fine now, many thanks.

  • Hello Ladies,
    No squirrel chasing for the holidays--that was nice. It's the New Year now though, and I bet the decorations will soon be down and then all bets off. They and their helpers did a lovely job. Did I miss Mama Martha's blog on her trees this year? You girls certainly had one inside all your own. Have a great weekend everyone.
    Love & licks,

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    No squirrel chasing???? What’s with you two? Squirrels were made for chasing; just ask any dog. Well maybe not because I don’t chase them when I’m walking. I just chase them when they get into the bird feeders. That food is for the birds; leave it alone! I do have to admit that you do have some artistic squirrels living on your farm. My Mommy has one place where she feeds the squirrels and I don’t chase them away from there. Now cats, on the other hand, are for chasing. I found a new one yesterday and got into trouble just trying to tell her about the cat. One of these days I will learn to be quiet, but not this week. Have a good weekend all.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., This sure is another fun blog post! I love the decorations that the squirrels did to your favorite squirrel chasing tree! They certainly got your attention, didn't they?! I like Sharkeys idea about not chasing them for a while so you can enjoy the beautiful decorated tree. After the tree is undecorated, you can get back to your chasing fun again! By the way, doesn't G.K. like to chase squirrels, too?! I heard you were getting more snow today. Sure hope it isn't as bad as the blizzard. Stay warm and have a great weekend! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hi Francesca and Sharkey: The squirrels really did a swell job of decorating their tree. Beautiful at night, I bet!

    It is gonna rain and snow this evening and then turn to straight snow by midnight. That is not fair cause I wanted to watch it fall and stay out with daddy and let it fall on me. Momma said it will melt away sometime Saturday morning as usual.

    Well, everyone have a wonderful weekend. Zoe, we miss you and your words of wisdom!

    Take care. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • Such great photos! I think that would be too tempting for my cats!

  • Nice pics! Take care friends!

  • Hey Zoe!
    Pups are missing you, including us, Frenchies! Why don't you come back?

  • Francesca... I am so happy you asked for Zoe to come back. I miss her sooooo much and the Daily Wag is not the same without her. Thank you. And come back Zoe!!!!

  • What does it look like at night?

  • Hey Zoe,
    I am with everyone else. Where are you? Did I miss that your folks were going on vacation and you couldn't write? Is T-Bone and the gang o.k.? Please contact us and let us know you are alright. Things just aren't normal when you are gone.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • What a great decorated squirrel tree! and as far as squirrel chasing... give them a rest for a while into the New Year ;-)
