I played in the backyard for a few hours today. Mom said it felt like spring and we should be outside. She wants me to learn to explore and be outside by myself.
I walked all around the yard smelling. Lots of places for me to smell. There are squirrels in the backyard and I love to chase them. One really fat one was on the big tree trunk and I ran around the tree until it climbed high. After a while it came down and I was waiting. I chased it and almost got it’s tail! It climbed up the fence to safety.
After all that I laid on the bench next to mom to rest. Then it was time to wander and smell some more. What’s that noise? I looked up and another squirrel was running along the top of the fence. I ran along the fence but the squirrel jumped onto a tree branch and got away. Maybe next time I’ll catch it!
Until next time….
