Attack Squirrel

Attack Squirrel, originally uploaded by southiejason.

It's been a while since I have posted a Rosie photo on here.

A few weeks ago, Ryan was nice enough to bring a new toy for Rosie the Dog.

That toy is Squirrel.

I swear I didn't think that Squirrel would last a week, as she has torn into other plush toys and forced me to toss them, fearing that she would begin swallowing the stuffing.

Squirrel has survived almost a month of constant attention. It's without question her new favorite toy. It squeaks in two places - the tail and the body.

Rosie prances around the house with Squirrel in mouth. When it's time to go for a walk, she always has to grab Squirrel, bring him to the door, and then drop him. Who knows why, she just does it.

I have even seen her attempt to pick up other items with Squirrel still in her mouth. Once a tennis ball, another time a treat.

When she wants my attention if I am standing up in the kitchen, she often nudges me with Squirrel in mouth for maximum nudge.

This photo is indeed staged. Squirrel did not attack Rosie. But, since Rosie is quite a ham when it comes to having her picture taken, she did not mind posing.

Somehow I think Rosie has that "Whatever, he's taking my picture again" type of expression on her face, or may be she just waiting for you to pet her!
