The Tormentor!

We think of them as squirells, My dogs think of them as tormentors. They run along our back fence Aka, the freeway, sometimes with great zeal. Emily doesn't seem to help matters. Every time she sees one running down the freeway, she yells "Squirrel!". This never fails to get Quinn our 2 1/2 year old golden retriever to the window, looking for his tormentor. Most of the time they make it by unnoticed, but there is a lose board on the top of the fence which they always seem to hit like it's a spring board. It makes a bit of a sound and alerts the dogs that someone is there. Of course by the time they figure it out, the squirrel is long gone, off snickering somewhere down the road. This rather well fed specimen, actually stopped and posed for the pictures. Daisy, our cat was in the yard watching, but was going to have nothing to do with this creature.
