October is officially Squirrel Awareness Month. In honor of the agile animals, dogs everywhere will abstain from chasing the rodents and instead, they will wear gray and brown ribbons on their collars to show their respect for all those squirrels who have crossed their path and met their maker dashing into the street.

Greg doesn’t have a beef with squirrels but my Mom’s dog, Dallas, hates them. It’s safe to say he won’t be observing this special month.
My dogs are not rodent pups. They chase them up trees and sit at the bottom standing guard.
If anyone out there needs a few extra squirrels, I will be more than happy to round up a few (or 200) from my neighborhood and send them on over.
Oh, I think I might have enough. My dogs are busy enough! 🙂 Thanks for reading and commenting
I had no idea upon joining this site just how much I’d learn. I’m now expecting a flood of tiny white crosses to appear alongside the street.
Hey, I aim to educate!
This is such an adorable idea. I feel like there should be some sort of pun on the ribbon like, “Are they NUTS?”
The election frenzy, I fear, has gotten to the squirrels in my part of the world. They run toward the middle of the road — rather like Mitt Romney in a national debate — then have to run back to the right as an automobile of voters comes barreling down the street. When I see that happen I know they’re just appeasing their base. Hoping things will calm down after November 6th.
So, maybe instead of brown and gray ribbons, the dogs should wear red and blue ones and hand them out to the squirrels depending up which side of the road they run to? Very fun Robin!
It’s about time dogs respected the squirrels. I can see one little problem though. If the dogs don’t chase them for one day, the squirrels will be expecting the respect every day. It’s the very same with buying flowers for somebody. Once you start buying flowers for someone, someone expects them again and again. Before you know it, you’re spending all your time stealing flowers from your neighbors garden and then you have to move again!
You are right! We will need rules on the best way to celebrate squirrel month. Perhaps, the squirrels can call you for advice?
