Goin' on a Squirrel Hunt! (Animal Week, Day 3)

Hi everyone, Biscuit is BACK! He is feeling a lot better today - not 100% yet, but still in much higher spirits and ready to play!!

This morning during breakfast he started barking and looking at something out the window...it was his first squirrel sighting! He was fascinated by its flicking fuzzy tail and it's cccc-ccc-cccalling sounds so we decided to postpone Dog Day until tomorrow and do Squirrel Day today instead :)

So, in honor of one of my favorite childhood rhyme games, "Goin' on a Bear Hunt," we changed things up a little and went on a "squirrel hunt" :) It goes like this...

Goin' on a Squirrel Hunt!
Gonna catch a big one!
I'm not afraid! (I'm not afraid!)

It's a beautiful day
The sun is shining
The birds are singing
The bees are buzzing

What's that up ahead?
A tall, tall tree!
Can't go under it
Can't go over it,
Gotta climb up it!Goin' on a Squirrel Hunt!
Gonna catch a big one!
I'm not afraid! (I'm not afraid!)

What's that up ahead?
A park bench.
Can't go over it,
Can't walk past it,
Let's watch for squirrels on it!

Gonna catch a big one!
I'm not afraid! (I'm not afraid!)

What's that up ahead?
Looks like squirrel tracks!
Can't go under 'em,
Can't go through 'em,
Guess we better follow 'em!

I'm not afraid! (I'm not afraid!)

What's that up ahead?
A tree nut! Squirrel's favorite food.
Can't really bury it,
Can't even eat it,
I think we better hold it!

I'm not afraid! (I'm not afraid!)

What's that up ahead?
Oh it's a hole...maybe a nest!

I can't see anything.
I can feel something.
I can hear something.
We better turn on our flashlights.
(pretend to turn on flashlight.)

Hey, what is that fuzzy thing!?
Let's take a closer look...
Oh look, it's a SQUIRREL!!
RUN! RUN! RUN!
(We ran all the way to the car and drove as fast as we could to the grocery store...and would you believe who was there waiting for us!? You guessed it!!)

I just CAUGHT a big one!
I'm not afraid! (I'm not afraid!)

Well, whatcha gonna do with it?

Can't really keep him.
Can't really talk to him.
I guess I'll let him go!! :)
