Mom has really flipped this time - she has actually started encouraging the evil arch enemy of all us doggies (tree rats - other wise known as squirrels) to come and visit our yard - not only visit though - she is even providing them with a smorgasbord of yummies to nibble on - what the dog !!!!! We must admit though - it is quite entertaining for us - we sit and wait on MY deck watching and as soon as they come near the feeder - the chase is on !!!!
