Fear the Squirrel

So, here is another post from way back in October that never quite made it to publication....

Micah and I were sitting in the living room, and I decided to take him to the window to look outside. There was this cute little squirrel running around the yard, and he ended up coming right up to the window! He was looking in at us and hanging out on the window sill. I thought Micah would love getting close and touching the glass - he is so dog crazy that I was sure the love of animals would transfer to the squirrel.

All I can say is Micah did NOT like the squirrel. When he caught sight of it, he got very upset. He started crying and trying to get away and hide. I was kind of amazed to see him so fearful - it was a brand new reaction for him. I also thought it was so interesting that he differentiated betweeen dogs (which he loves) and squirrels.

So...fear the squirrel. I wonder if he'll still feel this way about squirrels this spring.

Now that is a cute story. I'm glad it made it to publication. Maybe this spring will be different.
