Kess in A Tree

I did say I wanted some excitement in my beagle life in my last post. Well, I got some. My sharply-honed beagle nose sniffed out an intruder in our backyard. Now mum believes "Why keep a dog and bark yourself" (literally! It actually means you should not do something you hired some one else to do). So she gave me free reign to chase off the intruder, aka the pesky squirrel.

I tell you, these squirrels are the bane of my existence. Despite my clearly marked territory, they insist on scampering on MY ledges, MY trees and MY garden. In fact, there are days when they sit on the wall ledge and stare into my house, saying "Na na na na...you cannot catch me" (if squirrels could talk that is). Of course, they only do that when our glass door is closed and I can't get to them. Grr...It makes me so mad. "Let me at em, mum!" So, it was with great satisfaction that I was able to scare this pesky intruder off, even if it means I have to climb a tree and chase them off! Watch out squirrels, this watchdog is hard at work.

Check out my leg muscles...
My incredible balancing act... "And don't you dare come back, you pesky squirrel!" Check out the video on this beagle hard at work.

P.S. Mum took these action shots on her IPhone. We're pretty impressed by how they turned out.

You are a true hound Kess and we are pround of you.
Those squirrels need to learn a lesson!
If you need a hand let us know - we can climb too if we have too but you will have longer legs!
