One Lucky Squirrel

I was walking Carly this morning, and we were in the front yard. I noticed a squirrel running sort of awkwardly down the driveway next door. It looked like he had some kind of yellow flag sticking out the side of his mouth. He didn't seem startled or afraid to walk right by Carly on the Flexi leash. I watched him climb the tree, and when he came back around where I could see him, he was flat against the tree, and he was carrying an entire Butterfinger candy bar in his mouth. It was wider than his stretched out legs! I took Carly back inside and grabbed my camera. The photos aren't very good because the little squirrel went pretty high up in the tree, but I thought these were cute. He was VERY excited about the treasure he found for breakfast. I have no idea where a squirrel finds a Butterfinger candy bar just laying around, but I guess it was his lucky day!


Too bad Cooper wasn't here, it would have been a two-fer. Squirrel plus candy bar, definitely better than just a stupid old rabbit by itself!

He undoubtedly mugged a child on his way to school and stole his lunch. Some Cardi should teach that bully squirrel a lesson.

Those are great pictures! Squirrels are pretty tricky you know.

Ha! I wonder if chocolate is toxic to squirrels as it is to dogs.

That candy bar must have weighed close to half of what the squirrel weighed (before he ate it, of course.) I wonder if he survived it!

I saw a squirrel with a doughnut one time. It was a whole doughnut, and it looked like a person would look, eating an inner tube..... :-)

I want to know how he got that Butterfinger out of the vending machine!

No fair! I'm not even able to eat those, and he gets to eat one as big as himself! Damn peanut allergy, LUCKY squirrel!
