Caught Brown Handed

Huh? Digging in the yard? No, sir, not me!

Oh, that look of horror and worry on a small child’s face when their mother catches them doing something that in my day would have gotten them spanked.  And the poor kid can’t even deny it, because the evidence is all over them!  This squirrel’s got a lot of explaining to do….

Someone’s been digging up the yard and burying acorns again!  Was it you, Junior!?!?  No?  Then why are your paws caked with dirt?  And the tip of your nose, too!  Don’t lie to me!  That’s right, young  squirrel… you can just march yourself back up to your nest and consider yourself grounded for the entire weekend!  And I’ll take that cellphone, thank you very much.

Looks like this week’s Saturday Squirrel is not going to be seen very much until school starts again on Monday morning…

Have a great weekend everyone, and stay out of trouble!!!

  1. When following that acorns burying business, I wonder do they remember where they buried them. I have seen a magpie hiding food in different places places in our yard and a crow was sitting in a tree, and when the magpie flew away, it ate all the hides.

    • More often than not, they don’t remember…. especially since they often go through a lot of trouble to pretend to bury acorns in certain places if they think they’re being watched. But that forgetfulness over the years has been credited with creating our forests. After all, tree nuts can only go so far on their own… and those forgotten acorns soon become new trees.

    Ha, he’s like the kid with chocolate all over his face but swears he hasn’t been into the cookie jar.

    Awwwww, so cute! Who could get mad at that face? Not me, no matter what the little critter had destroyed!

    That squirrel isn’t guilty about digging. No, that squirrel is sadly in need of a manicure. Just look at those nails!

    • When one’s very survival depends on the ability to cling to tree bark 100 feet off the ground, one wants to be very careful about having their nails too finely trimmed…

  5. He’s got “guilty” written all over his face and YOU caught it on film!


  6. Good luck disciplining the little hoodlum. They keep digging up and eating my daffodil bulbs. I wonder how they’ll feel about tabasco soaked replacement bulbs?

    put him to work digging up a garden bed for you….or handcuff the lil bugger.

    • My gardening work consists of annuals planted by the previous owner that still pop up every Spring despite my best efforts to ignore them. The squirrels have free reign of the yard here, and many, many seasons of dead leaves to play and nest in….

  8. Duke doesn’t “do” acorns. He just digs and eats the dirt. Just dirt. Nothing IN the dirt but the dirt. Duke is one weird dog.

    Hmm. I’ve seen that exactly look on my doggie’s face… Must be the look of mischief. 😆
