Wildlife Preserve!!

Well yesterday was a crazy day.  I didn't get my planned blog done due to the unexpected wildlife fiasco, so here was my day.......

I went to do a workout on my treadmill, I've been planning it for awhile :) .  I get the incline to where I want it, I've got Rick Jame's "Super Freak" blaring on my iPod, and then I'm distracted.  I look over and Ruby, my English Bull Dog, has a squirrel cornered in my office.  Needless to say I was shocked and freaked out!!!  I jumped off the treadmill grabbed Ruby and got her in the house.  I go back out to see about getting the squirrel back into the yard and I don't see it anywhere.  Long story short I finally discover it hiding, coerce it back into the yard to be free.  Well he only made it to the shady lawn area and laid down.  By the time the Animal Control guy comes out, of course Mr. Squirrel is gone.  Happy but not convinced I go about the rest of my day.  Hours later so far so good, no more Mr. Squirrel.

After dinner Ruby goes outside.  Sitting at my computer thinking about doing a proper blog I hear the most dreadful noise.  I run outside and poor little squirrel, another run in with Ruby, this time no corner or shelves to hide behind.  I get Ruby away again, she's quite the huntress,  I have my 2nd dose of cardio and freak-out-ness of the day.

End of the story is I called my friend Rebecca, one of the coolest people I know, to come over and help me.  She gets Mr. Squirrel into a box and we take him to the Animal Shelter.  I hope he's OK, but I know it's up to the squirrel and his maker now.

Stay tuned for my next post about something important like a cool mascara I've discovered and hopefully not another animal adventure.  At least for a while.
