Sounds like a good time for the squirrel to take a nap up there:@)
:) interesting vigil. You must've had some goodies up at the house to take them away from there? Would they give up of their own free will I wonder
Wspaniałą historyjkę pokazałaś na ładnych zdjęciach. Pies obgryza drzewo ze złości, że mu wiewiórka uciekła i dobrze zrobiła. Pozdrawiam cieplutko, bo u nas spory mróz, ale na blogu lato :-). *** You showed us a wonderful story for pretty pictures. The dog gnawed tree of anger that the squirrel escaped him and well done. Yours nice and warm, because the frost in our disputes, but on the blog :-) summer.
Wow - you can get some great photos. By the time I get all the buttons figured on that Nikon 3100, the squirrel has died and gone on to another life. I'm thinking of giving that camera to my son. I just can't figure it all out. Which seems sad that a camera is smarter than it's owner. :)
Oh how I love your doggie tales. Your photos are truly the story. B
Amazing shots, amusing pictures!♥Crissi♥
This was delightful! One of my favorite posts ever!
LOL. Love that Thelma Jean plays lookout.
Could be filed under the definition of "treed". ;) blessings ~ tanna
A wonder they did not scare the squirrel like that. Are they still sitting there and will you bring them their dinner?
I can hear that rat barking back at them pups. That ain't no dog. It's a beaver. Nice shots.
Great story! Loved the tree shot with the orange fence adding a splash of color. I'm going to miss that orange fence. ;)
I think Thelma Jean didn't want to get wet and dirty. She sit back, relaxed, and enjoyed the show. LOL
That was quite a morning's activity. The three dogs on watch, you taking the action shots :) If BB goes at that tree trunk any longer, he'll eventually succeed in felling it.
this is hilarious, laughed all the way through my scroll down. they are precious and funny. and patient. at least it was not a SKUNK...the tree chomping just slays me
I imagine the squirrel was 'chattering' up a storm. I wasn't aware that Rottweilers were in the beaver genus, never saw one chomping on a tree before.
Oh wow, BB and Baron are after those critters, there's not a doubt! Hope the ones up in the tree stay up there and that they all just get amused watching and playing that game! Great post!
Classic stand-off, love that!
One lucky squirrel!
phew sighed the squirrel...oh that was a cute post!
I bet that squirrel was wishing he packed a lunch, your dogs are beautiful, as are your photos.
Our miniature schnauzer (gone for several years, but not forgotten) was so lady like - except for the squirrels. We could whisper the word squirrel and she would start a whiney-barking thing. Her best exercise came not from daily walks but from chasing and treeing the squirrels around our home. Thanks for the happy memory --- and the great pictures and story.
Squirrels...are great at teasing! This one is very lucky...I would hate to see if Baron n Louise got a hold of it!
I love it! Great photo story T. :)
Great pictures! I especially like the last one. ;-)
They are just trying to help out...how cute! George loves to chase rabbits!
Thank you for visiting our blog (Les Fous du Cap) and to have left a comment. We visited the Bird World Wednesday blog, the photos are beautiful.Céline & Philippe
Very amusing set of photos. Squirrels are not cute little things in my life...they are truly vermin!
That is one treed squirrel! Does the dog always eat the bark like that? Great time for all I think. xo Jenny
I like Thelma's stance. Just sit back and watch the show!
Such a fun post Theresa, I spent a few moments admiring the sculptured look of the trees (after I had finished drooling over your gorgeous canines of course) then got my brain in gear and spotted Mr/Mrs S! So glad there was a happy ending.... for the Squirrel :-)
Not much gets past you doggies! The three of us enjoyed these pics this morning over breakfast. Mine son was cracking up at the squirrel's expressions and your doggy eating the tree! :) Great pics Teresa! Have a terrific day!
NO WAY! BB actually chews the tree? I've never seen a dog do that! They really HATE varmints, don't they! YiKeS! =)
Oh, oh, this is so cute. Ah, the life of a ranch dog. What a hoot yours are. I get a big kick out of them. Margie
I believe I'd have settled in for a nap as well, if I were that squirrel!
The tree chompin' cracked me up and I love how Thelma Jean just sits back and calmly watches!
Great shots! Those dogs have the life.
But it gave them something to do, it looked like Thelma was saying, " Go ahead you silly guys, I am sitting here just watching the show. I know her and Louise are sisters so that makes it more funny.
And here, I was thinking that there was no chance for that squirrel! He was surrounded!
Thelma is so cool. Love how they all assume different positions and tactics. Your little warriors sure are patient, but I guess they realize after so much time passes that they're not winning the battle and move on. :)
BB would scare the living daylights out of me if I was a squirrel! Chewing the tree down is some serious squirrel hunting motivation!! Goodness!Me, I'm more like Thelma--ROFL!!LOVE these!!!! :):)
LOL! Poor lil' varmint! Ha! Your black labs are about as sleek as ours, but ours could care less about wasting energy to chase a silly squirrel--maybe a possum cause those are easier to capture. Love the one tearing down the tree. I just hope the squirrel survived.
I can hear the squirrel chatter from here.
That Thelma Jean ... she's my kind of girl. No point in doing the work when others are about!
Such a fun post! I always enjoy your doggy tales. Whew, lucky squirrel. I think it better find a new piece of property to visit. Gorgeous dogs looking up into the trees is a familiar sight at my house (we've got two who end up smelling like pine). No tree chomping yet, thank goodness!
I love the story unfolding - and I am not always for the squirrel, but I am in this case. lolsandie
Okay, that is a first. A dog that is part beaver. I have a new tree rat show up at the feeders yesterday so Trapper John is at work today at his relocation program.
Oh my! These pictures are fabulous... and funny! Love the commentary and love the doggy photos :)
ok that cracked me up ...BB says hey no worries we don't have to be able to climb the tree I will cut it down ROFL ROFL
Thelma is the Queen!!!!!
For a minute there I thought BB was gonna chew that tree down to get at the varmint! What an exciting time they have at the ranch!
How interesting, it looks like he could have taken down the whole tree, squirrel and all. No wonder the squirrel looked worried. Great story telling here.
Great post! Love how they tried to chew the tree!
Thank goodness no harm came to my little friend!
Never a dull moment. :)
I can't believe how much that tree dwarfs the lot of them!
What a great photo series! I can't believe BB is chewing the tree! Thelma Jean looks so prim and proper sitting there. Baron's pacing and barking is an important job too. Delightful dogs!
Ha! LOVE THIS! Bet that varmit was so happy to see them go!!!!!!
Nice photos. You got great images not only of the dogs but of the squirrel as well.
LOL! That is quite an army for one squirrel. Very cute post.
Fabulous . . . Thelma Jean has exceptional patience. Tree Rat knows precisely what he is doing. The "Shining Black Dudes" must hold some intimidation . . .Great photos Theresa!
I was so interested I couldn't wait till I scrolled to the next picture. Fun post!!!!
When our dogs are sitting at the base of a tree, its usually a cat they have treed.
LOL! That's hilarious! I could use some dogs like that to keep the tree rats out of the feeders. Well, not the tree-cutting dog. :-) Great photos!
Those massive jaws look mighty scary.
T, great series of shots! That's the first black beaver I've ever seen!
Gorgeous photos! And the dogs are just a Hoot! Isn't country life wonderful! I miss our dog and the wide open spaces in which she used to run (and chase the deer!)
Can't believe the dog was going to chop down the tree with this TEETH!! And the back hair of your black dog looks exactly like the hair on our Aussie, the way it is wavy, exactly the same.Fun Post. I'm glad we didn't see shots of the dogs pulling the tree varmit in half...they were ready!Lana
Those pups have some high hopes! Cute!xo Catherine
HI Teresa...What would you do without your friends to entertain you ; }Dear me they are so darn cute and it is wonderful that they are able to enjoy life!!Grace
Our dogs are to qute. Your´s have fun with a squirrel and my Trym with our birds that I´m feeding.Great pictures of their hunt...
Lovely pictures of the dogs and the little squirrel!Have a great day!Eva
Yes, but they showed the varmint who is boss! ;-)
Thank you for your comment on my blog! and oh my, what a drama this was. Great photos.
This is straight out of "UP"! I love your pics and story. This is a lot of fun:) I'm having a good laugh right now:)
A wonderful post to read and so well illustrated.. it must have been lovely to watch and hear at the time.
Heeehehehe!!! If BB can't get to the squirrel, he's takin' the tree down! Great!God bless ya and have a magnificent day!!! :o)
The mighty hunters! Dogs just crack me up! Great shots.
It's such a fun! Lovely dogs,squirrels and happy end:)
Cute varmit! Cute dogs! :) Love your header too by the way.
They probably said oh well we'll just try another day. Gotta go have a bite to eat.
Hi, Sorry I haven't been around this week. We have bee traveling and taking more photos... Hope you are having a great week.Great photos. OH--how I need your 'babies' up here treeing my squirrels....Hugs,Betsy
Life is best in the company of dogs! I could sure use BB the one with the jaws...is he available this Spring?...:)JP
Oh good, I was cheering for the squirrel!
I just love your dogs...I really do!
That is one tall dead tree! The squirrel looks like it's enjoying itself, taunting the dogs. So nice to see that pond finally full of water!
This varmint looks legit scared.
You wonder how they can see that squirrel up there.
Such a great series of photos! Poor Mr. Squirrel...or Mrs..., I guess!
Oh my goodness~ this is better than a reality show! :)Poor squirrel was probably thinking "Oh Crap!" *haha*
Poor squirrel ... no matter what direction he looked there was another dog! LOL Great post & great pics.'love & hugs from afar'
goodness Tex, very busy creatures today! I'm certain they are all enjoying the gorgeous weather!
You had me biting my fingernails there for a minute. Must be the same problem BB has with biting trees. (or not)
How fun to watch that all play out!! great photos again!!Hugs, Linda
the theme music to mutual of omaha's wild kingdom was playing in my head while i read this post. ;o)
That looks like quite the stand off to me. Love Thelma Jean's patience.
This is so funny, look at those puppies, prepared to eat through the trunk of the tree, but with hearts of gold. I thought of you on my big trip home, through the country, looking at fences, i was fixated & wished i wasn't driving so i could take photos of all the fences i liked. All based on your fence inspiration posts, which are becoming very relevant to me now as our farm life draws closer. Love Posie
free entertainment!! some peeps pay big money for a show like this!!
i do think his days are numbered!!
Cute squirrel. I think judging from the relative positions of the dogs and the squirrel, he is pretty safe to just wait it out. What is it about dogs and squirrels?
whew....that was close....
Go get 'em BB! Wouldn't break my heart a bit. I have to admit, though, that last shot of the varmint is pretty awesome :)
Beautiful dogs, and they look like they are waiting VERY patiently for this little guy. Love the last shot here. He's too cute!
That's one vicious attack on that tree :)
I'm pretty sure one of those B's stands for "beaver."
They had that squirrel cornered good! That is so funny seeing it all play out like that!
Right on! Trying to chew the tree down! That's awesome!
What a great story. Your dogs do not give up easily! I cannot believe you picked the 3rd and the last of those houses. They were my favorites, and as weird as they are, I really like them. The little house is my daughter’s home in Still Pond where we go at Christmas each year. It is really old but has so much beautiful wood in it. I was almost afraid to post those pictures for fear everyone would think I had lost my mind. Finally I said...old, gal, go for it! Thank goodness you were the first to see them. Off this weekend to celebrate #73 at the state park. Hope to come back with some good photos. genie
I love it! You do have a pair there! Definitely a good time for the squirrel to take a nap!! Fun captures for the day!Sylvia
Lovely images..looks like the dogs really had fun!! :)Regards,Angad AchappaIndian Wildlife Photography
Well, these three have me just laughing and I needed it today. Thelma especially, she knows how to maintain a position doesn't she? :-) And great minds! I took Willie on today's photo shoot as well. He's not into varmit hunting--just likes to ride in the car and sniff the entire park hill for other dog signals.
Fun hunting story, and brave dogs to keep that squirrel treed for so long. Some tense moments for the squirrel, but luckily for him the dogs can't climb trees.
this made me smile, thank you!lucky squirrel!
Good dogs, they are guarding their yard. My dog gave up trying to chase the squirrels. Great series of photos, they really tell the story.
It's amusing that all that commotion can happen over a squirrel! And by the way, that close-up shot of the squirrel is definitely a keeper - small hyperactive varmints like that are not easy to get clear pictures of!
Great post, awesome photos.Love to see photos of your dogs.
Looks like you got a good rain too! We had 5.5" whoo hoo!
What a story! Wish I could caption like you. hmmm...I'll work on it...off and on. Sooner or later I'll figure it out. Thank you for the smiles.
I think the dogs need a chainsaw :).
Hilarious!King chews big sticks, not sure he would try his Luck on a whole tree, squirrel or not.They would both try to climb it though :-D
The squirrel looks so tiny compared to that tree-eating machine! Great shot on the last photo! Beautiful.
Wonderful series!! :))
We used to have a squirrel in the neighborhood back when we had two dogs, it would get just across the fence about two feet and sit and eat with one of our dogs barking every breath. I swear it was teasing her.
