My dogs and I had a conversation about squirrels the other day.

One of the dogs, Scout, said “I don’t know what the big deal is about squirrels.  With their fluffy tails and their beady little eyes.  They’re just glorified sewer rats if you ask me.”

I laughed.

The other dog said, “I just want to know why I can’t catch ’em!”

My response?

“Because they’re too fast, Little Bear.  They’re just… too… fast.”
