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 ...
