Squirrel Club Meeting: Minutes 8.18

Sorry this is posted late, it has been a crazy week. Read my post below to see how busy I have been.

Anyways, we had another great meeting! Our squirrelclub is really getting big! Our secretary and treasurer did a fantastic job with the organization, and my sister Nala did a good job with the introductions. 

The main topic of discussion was the case of Michael Vick. I think we were all horrified that he was picked up by the NFL. He is going to make a lot of money now, and he is going to be glorified. He is going to be a role model for children. I do not think this is right. A lot of other squirrel club members were really upset as well. Second chances are good, but he didn't give those dogs he taught to fight a second chance. If they didn't perform right, or something was wrong with them, he drowned them, electrocuted them, and even beat them to death. Sorry, but if you can do that to a living creature, you do not deserve to make over 10 million dollars playing sports. It is just wrong.

We finished up the meeting talking about the squirrels stories from earlier this week. I think next week we are going to have a squirrel show and tell and we can talk more about our squirrel hunting stories. It will be a lot of fun!

Oh, and PS. there are a lot of dogs out there that are under the assumption that I am a guy. Last time I checked I am a girl dog. Yeah, pretty sure I am. Nala sniffs my butt all the time, so maybe we should check with her. 

Camping, digging, and flea baths.

Well, I have a lot to talk about in this blog post. It has been a pretty crazy week to say the least. Our crazy week starting out last friday when Josh and Mandy decided to take us camping. Well, not really camping per say. They set up the tent in our backyard and we roasted s'mores at our fire pit. It was actually really fun! I LOVED sleeping outside all night long! Mandy and Josh were really funny in the tent. Mandy kept waking up and checking on me and Nala. I hear we may be going camping again tomorrow, so I am very excited!

So another exciting thing that happened was that we had a little "accident" while digging. I usually oversee Nala while she digs. (I am more of a contractor, not a laborer). We are working on this huge hole near the back shed to try and get some rabbits that keep escaping our yard that way. Well we were at the point in our excavation where we had to remove some roots. Well, Nala bit down and pulled through most of them. Then she started acting really weird and was having a hard time with her mouth. I had no idea what was going on. So we walked inside to tell Josh. Nala kept trying to tell everyone that there was something wrong with her mouth. Well, we come to find out that Nala had a huge root wedged in the roof of her mouth! Sammy was able to reach her hand inside and get the root out. Looking back, it was actually a really funny site. 

Well it's that time of year again where we get lots of flea baths and get our flea medicine. Nala seems to get more fleas than me, so it is really funny to watch her get the flea medicine spray. She hates it.

Squirrel Club Meeting: Minutes 8.11

Well, despite twitter crashing halfway through our meeting, I feel we yet again had another great meeting. We had a potluck snack, so everyone brought their favorite dog treats. Mandy made me some vegetarian snacks to bring, but seeing as we are all carnivores, they weren't too popular. Some tofu thing. But other dogs brought some great meatball snacks, and there were a lot of Snasages. There were some raw hides, but those went pretty quickly.

After we did some new introductions to some new members, we shared some squirrel stories from the past week. There were some pretty crazy ones, I will leave it at that. The main thing we discussed at our Squirrel Club was the looming threat of squirrels. Humans may fear terrorists and weapons of mass destruction, but the real threat here is SQUIRRELS. Some of our members brought some startling new photos of some squirrel training camps that have caused quite a stir in the dog community. I have posted a few of the photos that were presented in our meeting. They are quite unsettling. 

So just be on the look out if you see any of these squirrels behaving strange or holding guns. You should probably notify the humans if you see them holding guns, actually. Anyway, we are starting up a squirrel club defense league, kind of like the Order of the Phoenix from Harry Potter. We are currently looking for a cool name for this league. Leave a comment or note if you have any suggestions. 

Cheers everyone! I need to take a nap since we just got back from a long walk.

Squirrel Club Meeting: Success!

Well, we just finished a FANTASTIC squirrel club meeting today! It was our first meeting and it was awesome. I hosted this meeting in our backyard in our tree cave and we even had it catered! The local English Pub carried squirrel meat! So we had some squirrel kabobs, deep friend squirrels, and steamed squirrel. 

We had a lot of dogs, squirrels, some humans, and a toad come to our meeting! We all went around the cave and introduced ourselves and started to share stories of squirrels and hunting adventures. We shared photos of funny squirrels, exchanged blog information, and planned future squirrel club meetings. I think this is going to be a regular weekly meeting. Our next one is going to be next tuesday at 2pm. I am thinking about theming our meetings, any ideas? We also have some future plans of doing some field trips to a squirrel park, and possibly a baseball game. Those were just a few of the ideas that were tossed around. We also had some make shift elections to help make our club official. Here are the offices:

President: Me
Vice President: Nala
Secretary: SydPie
Treasurer: Hank the Dog

If you are interested in holding a position within the Squirrel Club, just contact me and we can appoint you something. This club is really big! I am currently looking for a Squirrel Ambassador, so please contact me if you are interested!

So overall, fantastic meeting. I have included a photo of Nala and me waiting for the guests to arrive. The other photo is of me at the mouth of the tree cave waiting to welcome our guests. I know, I'm awesome.

Squirrel Hunting Club

So I am starting a squirrel hunting club. And no, Nala you can not be in it. Just because you had a squirrel in your mouth once does not make you a squirrel hunter. And just because you killed that squirrel that one time because you body slammed it, doesn't make you a squirrel hunter either, it just means you are fat. (Okay readers, I am not being mean to my sister, she growls at me all the time, this is just payback.) 

So I am starting this squirrel hunting club because 1. I am awesome 2. squirrels need to be destoryed and 3. I am awesome. I am looking for a cool name for this club, any suggestions? We will be meeting every tuesday afternoon in my backyard in my tree fort/cave. It is a perfect spot to spy on squirrels and to hide bones. So bring some snacks for everyone to share if you plan on coming. I will post the meeting's minutes on my blog tomorrow evening. So hopefully we can decide on a name during the meeting. 
Well I have to get some rest now, big day tomorrow setting up for the meeting and such. I am going to leave you with this photo I found of some squirrels in training. This is just one of the many reasons why these creatures need to be destroyed.

What's wrong with rolling in poop?

So we had some company come over tonight--Grandpa with his dog Zoe and Tom. We had a nice dinner and we even got to go on a walk. After dinner I was outside with Nala, doing out normal perimeter check of the yard. I had the great idea to cloak my scent to better help me catch some squirrels. I think they know me too well now and scamper away when they sense I am coming. This morning I saw a squirrel by a pile of poop in our backyard. I am not sure if the poop was mine or Nala's, but we both got to thinking that we should roll around in it so our scents could be disguised. Well all went according to plan until we came in for a bit and Josh and Mandy saw that we had poop on our coats. Well, I will make a long story short--we had to take a bath and spent the rest of the night smelling like strawberry dog shampoo. 

On a brighter note, Zoe sat in Nala's cave under the table and pissed Nala off. It was awesome.

What I have always feared

They can fly. I have seen it on TV, but this is real. Squirrels can fly. And I am not talking about those exotic flying squirrels either. Everyone needs to be on the lookout for these creatures from hell that can fly. They are tricky little beasts. 

Anyway, it is raining cats and squirrels out there (I don't like using the term "cats and dogs" I think it is degrading to dogs) so I can't go out and chase any squirrels right now. It was storming so bad this morning I had to curl into a little ball and hide in Mandy's bed covers! It if wasn't thundering so bad out I would really like to go out there and sit in the rain in my tree fort. I feel like I am spying on squirrels when I sit in there. I know, I am awesome.  

Well, Nala is looking at me funny now, so I guess I better get off of my blog and get back to my usual past time of making fun of her on twitter.
