Autumn officially began yesterday, and as if to make that point certain, late yesterday evening a squirrel ran by in a deliberate attempt to infuriate Scott. Mission accomplished for the squirrel.
Neither Scott nor Ellie were happy with this situation since they were both inside at the time and could only observe through the window. The neighbor saw it also so I suspect he will soon start putting out corn again to attract more of them.
This is not the same squirrel that made the near fatal mistake of ignoring Scott early last spring. That tree rodent is minus part of its tail.
The dogs were happy because it's something else to occupy their time and they were getting tired of watching doves.
