Hug a Squirrel

   Sunday, January 21 is National Hugging Day and Squirrel Appreciation Day. Pierre has written another poem in honor of this double howliday.
White Westie dog leaning on tree
Oh bushy-tailed squirrel up in our tree
I see you throwing nuts at me.
You try to sneak from branch to trunk
Get on the ground you furry punk.
As we celebrate a day meant for hugs
And feign appreciation at your squirrely mugs
I must admit enjoying when we chase like the breeze
So you really deserve a Westie squeeze…
Around your neck with my tiny paws.

Chips and hot sauce meme
1. I have never been able to resist chips and hot sauce.
2. I wish I could still jog but my knees don’t think it’s a good idea. 
3. Watching a movie snuggled up on the couch with Skipper and the boys is my ideal winter night.
4. Coffee and donuts.

  3. It is a lot of nerve dedicating a day to tree rats. I'll be sharing my opinion on Monday. Grrr... Happy weekend!

    1. That was my favorite line too. I don't think the squirrels appreciated it because none of them have come down the tree for a hug. Sigh...

  8. Was that 'around your neck with my tiny paws' meant to be jaws? Love the poem. We don't have squirrels, but we think we'd like to hug them, too.
