Hello there! It is just me the handsome blogging Border Collie. I have been too busy to blog. I have been engaged in a war.
I have my eyes trained on one of those “Chippys.” Far Guy calls them Chippys they are really Chipmunks or some people call them Ground Squirrels or even Striped Squirrels.
I hardly even blink whilst watching…waiting..anticipating..I am so still I could be a statue. ( I have been in the pool and then I rolled in the sand a little..just so you don’t think I am a slob.)
I keep one eye on those varmits at all times.. They are in my trees, they are in my woodpile. They try to eat the birdseed in the feeders to get enough strength to multiply and then eat bird eggs. Yes, they eat bird eggs..so Far Side says my Chippy Hunting is justified.
Awe aren’t they cute. I have been honing my Chippy skills for six years now. I am learning....I think I might be in my prime. Sometimes I wait half the day for one of the stupid ones to come out of the trees and make a run for it.
This one is going to make a run for it!!
Far Guy says “Crap, I suppose I will have to put my shoes on, get the shovel and bury another one.” Far Side needs a camera that takes many pictures all at once. That Chippy came out of the tree and nearly ran right into me..he banked off of a tree behind me and I chased him right up the same tree again.
Everyone laughed..I did not think it was funny at all. I watched and waited way past dark..I guess that Chippy will sleep in that tree tonight and tomorrow the battle will resume:)
