DYLAN CUTS TO THE CHASE!

Dylan was just resting peacefully on the front lawn when one of those evil black squirrels came along and destroyed his reverie.


 Dylan decided to introduce himself, but the squirrel was being rather standoffish.


Finally, it appeared right before him as if by magic, but when Dylan attempted to shake paws, it took off again.  Cheeky squirrel! 

 "Please, please come down", Dylan pleads.  "I just wanna be your furiend."

And so the little black demon descends (or is that CONdescends?). 

It's a "con" job for sure.  He tricks Dylan into going one way, as he goes the other!   (Note:  For some reason this picture refused to load right side up, but it's integral to the story!)


Even though Dylan is fleet of foot, the beastly blackguard is two steps ahead of him.

 As the imPURRtinent little rodent taunts Dylan from the safety of the bush branches, Dylan feels he has exhausted all benign options. "Now you realize", Dylan warns, "it's war!" 

And with that WARning, Dylan's off to explore, leaving the dark one behind to deal with yet another day.  Though his quest to make a new furiend of his prey was not a success, he takes comfort in the knowledge that his motives are chaste (unlike the squirrel that he chased). 
 It's just the beginning ...

Oh, those squirrels are cheeky little, uh, rodents. Some of them are quite nasty! We wish you better luck at "making friends" next time, Dylan.

Oh it is that time of year when the squirrels start to come out! And we know they loved to taunt Dante last year - maybe they think it is your turn this year!

Oh, now I understand re. the ICHC site! Thanks for the explanation, Wendy. Please go ahead and keeping using my pics, as you wish. It would be nice if the ICHC site had a way to credit the photo, though! I really don't want to put watermarks or copyrights on them, they're not Photography with a capital P...just snapshots. That's THEIR issue, though, Wendy, not yours!

Oh what fun. To have squirrels to chase up and down the tree. Could you catch one and send it to us, please Dylan?

It's not over, Evil Squirrel! Don't even think about it!

Crafty squirrel! But if he thinks he can outwit Dylan indefinitely, he has another thing coming!
