Merfy watching squirrels in the yard.
He's such a good boy, watching, not chasing!

Wow, a bird hanging on by the skin of its feet, so to speak, superb catch of the day. All lovely, and wee Merfy, he's such a special fellow. Jean.

Awwwwwwww, sweet poochie. He's so adorable. Just look at that face...one that would melt anyone's heart.

Neat bird. We don't see 'em here. At least I've not. So, a special treat for me.

And the squirrel? Of course they're cute too.

Very cute, especially Merfy! One of my little dogs thinks she's a hunter and I always have to keep her on a leash.

Such a great shot of Merfy amid the colorful fall leaves.

Hi Karen. Merfy looks to be intent on causing mischief to those squirrels. It's all good clean fun though I'm sure.
