Oscar goes bonkers for squirrels!
Serious Squirrel Conniptions for 411 Mascot Oscar!
So as a follow up to this real world look at dog psychology – here’s another example of the diverse personalities of our four-legged friends.
My dog is so alert when it comes to the squirrels in Hoboken – I sometimes believe that he thinks that’s his only reason to exist! Whenever we pass by an area “known for having an ample supply of squirrels” in the past – he immediately becomes 10 times more alert and strong in his walking stance. Most of the time, I’m too busy to let him chase and whine after the furry rats he has a 0.1% chance of catching… but sometimes I have a little extra time and indulge his cravings.
Like this particular instance last week (before he got his Spring Mohawk Makeover) over at Church Square Park. This devious squirrel felt content on the top of the fence – and continued letting Oscar bark and bark and bark. It drove him nuts (much to the squirrel’s satisfaction, I gather).
Does your dog love, hate, or feel indifferent about squirrels?
