Squirrel Girl

Bow Street Flowers

Because Addie had been surrendered twice in her nine months when we adopted her, I arranged for our friend Sofi to stay with her while we were away in California, instead of kenneling her. 

Addie could sleep cozy in our bed (with Sofi), play with her best friend Murph and feel comfy at home.

Sofi is a photographer and when we came home, she emailed a portrait of Addie to us.  


Doesn't she look stately and mature?  Well mannered?  Well, you're looking into the eyes of a highly focused Squirrel and Cat Juggernaut.  I think we can deconstruct her DNA and find a Sight Hound lurking within that double helix.

Every morning she steps onto the back porch in a crouching position and freezes until she sees movement at the back fence where the squirrels gather what they gather.

The good news is that she can't catch them.  And her first cat chase ended with the cat turning to face her, ready for a spat.  Addie stopped in her tracks and barked until the cat sauntered away.

So, really, she's just a Game Girl and not a serious predator.  But the squirrels don't know it.  Maybe I could actually have an unmolested bird feeder in my back yard now!

Thank you Sofi for the beautiful portrait of my sweet girl.
