Baby's Nemesis

As of late, my sweet little dog (Baby) has decided to make it her life's work to rid the backyard of squirrels. And in response, the squirrels have decided to torment her every chance they get. They let her get within a few feet and then up the tree they go. They come right up on the deck and peek at her through the sliding glass door . . . if they could point and laugh, I'm sure they would.

I'm not quite sure what would happen if she caught up with one, but it's lots of fun watching the hunt. And it also inspired some new characters. They'll be headed to Ebay tonight . . .


"Did someone say squirrel?" . . .

That is funny, baby is not much bigger than a squirrel, lol. The minute mine goes out, everything runs, but he could care less.

I love your new pieces, they are so fun and love those tails and the details.

Squirrel Dolls?! How original!!! My God, you have talent.Have you considered getting a patent for the pattern? Maybe make a line of squirrel dolls to collect? This is so origial, you should consider making them signature pieces, and a recognizeable brand. seriously. In Montreal, we have "Ogilvy's Window" if you aren't familiar with it, you can see an example at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEW0trn_zpE they remind me of the characters in Ogilvy's Window. Awesome.

Love your creations. The squirrels are so cute. You did an amazing job. And Baby needs to be in my yard. There are squirrels everywhere. I finally stopped filling the bird feeders. It was a lost cause of my birdies. Have a great day. Thanks for sharing those amazing creatures.

Madalynne - tell Baby that if I was a squirrel I would be terrifed of her and she is doing a wonderful job! LOL! What a little sweetie!!!! Her fur looks like spun sugar and so soft! We have a ton of squirrels and enjoy watching them - your squirrels are amazing - I've said it before - you are so very gifted! ~*~Lisa
