She's a known squirrel killer

The problem is the dog isn't a big fan of frolicking creatures that nature brings us to brighten our days. With the temperature cooling to the degree of "let's open the windows" Fahrenheit, we let the breeze and the crickets lull us to sleep. And in the morning we hear the birds chirping bringing us out of our slumber. It really is a sunshine and lollipops kind of atmosphere and adds a peaceful calm to the household.
But when a couple of geese decide to park themselves across the street from the house and squawk at irregular intervals, mayhem ensues. Since the dog is a known squirrel killer, she has an overwhelming sense of power when it comes to her turf. Her turf is basically the street we live on, if anyone dares walk their dog past our house she will let them know in no uncertain terms that they are intruding. She also has a white hot hate for skateboarders.

Wild animals really piss her off. They wander the neighborhood without boundries, she's jealous. So my morning and early afternoon consisted of squawks and barks, barks and squawks. The geese wouldn't leave until they were good and ready and now the dog is spent, sleeping it off on my bed, barely able to keep her eyes open. The know squirrel killer missed her mid-morning nap.

I can't tell you how much I like lollipops atmospheres. You made my day. I now understand about the squirrel killing too. In the other post I thought it was YOU and had just blamed it on the dog. Are you still taking writing courses?

Carol - Don't make that call, we promise to be good.

Relax Max - Writing courses ended in July and I haven't signed up for any more. I would like to go to a Writing Conference, they are highly recommended but I want to find one close to home.
I've never killed a squirrel, a bunny by mistake but not a squirrel.
