Dogs and squirrels share a unique love/hate relationship. Dogs just want to chase them around, and squirrels almost seem to understand that they can tease as much as they want while having quick access to an escape right up the nearest tree.
Maybe that’s what infuriates our pooches and keeps this whole thing going! Check out the standoff below between one dog and a squirrel at the door:
“Bernie the Black Lab puppy is OBSESSED with squirrels. He chases them every chance he can get. So, he was quite surprised to see one up on HIS front step as he was about to go for his walk. The squirrel apparently does not see him as a threat!” 😀
