good samaritan acts misunderstood

hi every bloggie!

Last week Mango and Peewee made a jail break- escaping the estate to oversee a construction site. I saw the news story and called the media to quickly state.. Mango in fact is not a moose.
It really stirred fear amongst the community. I DID NOT call the animal cops to get them arrested. Quite frankly I'm still unsure what Mango is exactly.. isn't that a fruit? I was trying to dispel the fear. That's all.

Any whooo, I not only hunt frogs.. but anything that moves. This includes the fall favorite-squirrels. I didn't seem to get anywhere just chasing them into a tree. I had to come up with a plan. Ah ha.. how about this trap.
Only problem, I have to wait after the trap is baited and spelled correctly. Ho hum where's my bottle of Baileys when I need it.
Wait.. I hear something. Yes indeed it worked!
Gotta Go!


  1. oookay.. hope MANGO can't read or watch the news...or escape to Marlborough.

    anyhooo, watch out for that squirrel. i think he wanted your baileys, not those coocoo nuts.


  2. Norwood, that looks like a very good idea. Please let me know if it works. I have some nasty little chipmunks that torment me by my front window lookout. If it works for you I might try and find some smaller nuts and give it a try. Waiting for your results.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  3. He again
    that squirrel
    he is EVERYWHERE ...... ;)

  4. Go get that squirrel!!

    lots of woofs

  5. I know it was you! A moose indeed!

    Do let me know how the nut trap works.


  6. What a clever trap sending the squirrels a message in their own language! I will be using that (unless you have copyrighted it) to lure in those squirrels that taunt me daily from the tree outside my kennel!
    I see you caught one already-good job, Norwood!
    You are such a NUT!! and I think that's why we understand each other so well.

    From one nutjob to another-have a fantastic week!
    Chester ;0=)

  22. Cripes. That Trevor McDonut reads the news your side of the pee too?

    I've never chased a squirrel. Ever. I know I know. Not worthy of my terrier title. Mom is wondering if I'm an acorn short of an oak tree.

    Wiry wags n kisses Eric xxxx

  23. Oh no, not HIM again!!! Get him Norwood.

    Tail wags, the OP Pack

  24. How about Frangelico, some hazelnut liqueur instead of Bailey's. Your rodent friend might get a whiff of it and run straight up to you and then you attack...just a thought...
