Close Encounters of the Squirrel Kind

We were back at Cesar Chavez park this weekend, and the squirrels/gophers were out in full force! Captain, of course, took notice.

Hey, I know you're down there!

I couldn't believe how brazen this little guy was. He completely stuck his entire head out. Captain was transfixed. There was no moving this Vizsla.

Eventually, the little guy wised up and covered up his hole. Poor Captain, he was ready to dig him out but I wouldn't let him. I'll admit this isn't the most exciting video; I just think Captain looks adorable in it- slightly incensed, slightly curious, furrowed brow.... where'd my squirrel go?!


  1. That is adorable! Kudos for capturing the encounter!

  2. I've been enjoy your blog for the last week or so since I found it, catching up. I'm going to be (probably) getting a dog from Dawn at RedDog Ranch next week, I was wondering what your experience with Captain has been like. He seems very happy and healthy, has he had any temperament issues or shown any unusual fear? Any unexpected health problems?

    I love everything you do with him and I can't wait to get my little guy and start taking him on our adventures.
