Dante and Dylan are brothers and Dante is the older of the two by a couple of years, making him a little more laidback and wiser in his ways.
Earlier today, Dante was just lounging under the maple bush in the front yard ...
When along came Dylan to shake him out of his reverie!
"Reely bro!", says Dylan. "How kin yoo just lie dere wen dere's skwirrels to be chased?"
"Speekin' of da devil, dere's wun of da liddle jerks, now!"
Out of loyalty to his brother, Dante goes along to inspect the situation.
But it wasn't long before Dante decided it was just wasn’t his cup of tea anymore...
... and basically benched himself. "As fah as I'm concerned", says Dante "dis is a spectatah sport!"
Just then a little black beast sprints past Dylan at top speed – taunting him!
You'll have to biggify this picture to see the squirrel. Dylan is in attack mode and Dante knows from experience that Dylan's not likely to succeed -- but it sure is fun to watch!
When the slippery little sucker disappears up the tree, Dylan tries shaking it down, but to no avail. The squirrel has already planned an escape route through the tops of the trees.
Dylan just can't believe his bad luck!
And then he does something he really doesn't like to do -- admit his defeat!
"I gives up!" he exclaims in frustration.
The lesson that Dylan has to learn is that it's the thrill of the chase that provides the most excitement. Actually catching the little beast would spoil the fun -- something Dante already knows full well!
