the squirrels are always more fun to chase on the OTHER side of the fence


Spike surveys new back yard fencing

Hey, Spike, wanna play?

come on, Spike, let’s have a little fun

No, I’m on Squirrel Patrol

if I could just get to the OTHER side of this fence…

 nothing but trouble back there, Big Guy

I rule

I don’t

P.S. fyi Spike has managed to jump the fence chasing squirrels twice as of this writing

  2. Spike is a man with a mission to undermine the Squirrel Empire. Charly is young yet. Soon she will take Squirrel Patrol seriously, but let’s hope she stays within the Morris Williams Perimeter!!

    Spike is determined. Maybe (dare I say?) the new fence height was a little too optimistic?
