Regarding: The Dalton
I have mentioned before that we have a black walnut tree in the yard that the squirrels are quite fond of. They send walnut shells down like green rain and even take a shot at the dogs with a walnut once in a while.
Well, the Walnut Road (Ice Road) is open. The squirrels use the fence at the back of our yard to transport their nuts (OUR nuts, thieves) back and forth to wherever. When the dogs threaten their route, they drop down behind the fence and run on the ground instead. It INFURIATES the dogs.
Once in a while, a stupid squirrel (who are we kidding, they are all stupid) will venture into the open yard, up in the middle. We wiggle the doorknob, bang on the window to give the squirrels some warning and then we UNLEASH THE HOUNDS. I find it more than slightly amusing to watch the squirrels run for their lives. They always take the longest route possible to the fence, reinforcing the whole all squirrels are stupid theory. And then they run across the top. One of these days, one of them is going to fall off. Drop down, dumbass.
