Tattle Tail Tuesday

Let me tell you a "tail" about the mighty squirrel hunter Diamond Doggy. Diamond does not care for squirrels, not even a little bit. If he sees one through a window he barks and growls. In this very short video we see Diamond tearing after a squirrel (you have to look very closely to catch a glimpse of the squirrel). In his many years of hunting and chasing, Diamond has never caught a squirrel. What he lacks in skill, he makes up in spirit.

Diamond The Mighty Hunter

I may actually get to post a picture of ME tomorrow!

Diamond sure moves fast chasing after that squirrel! We enjoy watching squirrels out the window, but have never chased one.

Keep at it Diamond, your day will come.

The Meezers said...

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

Great video! Diamond is so fast! The squirrels in our yard just stay in the trees and chatter at us. One of these days......

Jimmy Joe said...

Ha ha, boy Diamond sure does try. Coco stands and jumps at the bottom of the tree and squeals in rage when she sees a squirrel up there, but she's never scared one so badly that it falls off its branch. She does catch moles and voles and mice, though.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

He sure does have a lot of SPIRIT chasing the squirrel. My mama says squirrels are very smart, so tell Diamond to not feel bad.

Dearest Parker,
Them is some real lucky squirrels in your yard...our big brother, Felix, used to bring mommy dead squirrels as presents before he moved into the house.

Very truly yours,
The Whiskers & Purrs Gang

PS...we tagged you for a MeMe on our bloggy...check it out, 'kay?

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Whoa!! Diamond can run FAST! What a great yard that is for a doggie!

Luna said...

Wow, that is a good hunter and a fast runner.
You have a nice yard there !!!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We give him E for Effort, which means he did a good job of chasing that squirrel, even if he didn't catch it.

PB & J said...

Heh heh, that looks like Georgie! She runs out the back door barking her fool head off trying to get those squirrels, but they're too fast for her!

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

He certainly has enthusiasm. But you have to have to stalk squirel to catch them. I think he lacks in style.

HRH Yao-Lin said...

haha look at diamond go! The human just said run forrest run but I think she is being insulting. I shall claw her for that! I think Diamond is clearly a very keen hunter.The squirrels are just too fast! x

Forty Paws said...

Wow! Diamond doggie can really run!

Luf, Us

Mickey said...

I think Diamond scared the cr*p out of the squirrel and that's why it's so hard to see it run now ;)
heh,heh,heh

Moki said...

What can you expect...doggies are nearly as smart as us kitties! Fortunately they do have lots of heart!!

Yoggie said...

Oh, I can't see the squirrel. Where is it?

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Well, he does show a lot of spirit.

Beezer said...

Go Diamond GO!!
At least he's not chasing a roadrunner.

Kimo & Sabi said...

Silly woofie!

Halloween said...

Oops. The woofie cannot chase the squirrel up the tree or over the fence. Too bad woofie! Cats are superior.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Amazing! Diamond is so fast. Are you sure he isn't a cheetah in a woofie suit?

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

Camie's Kitties said...

Diamond looks like he is having a lot of fun chasing that squirrel. Camie almost took off our Papa's arm when she was first off the track. She was trying to chase a rabbit when she was on a potty break.

Karen Jo said...

Diamond is very fast. Unfortunately, the squirrel is just a little bit faster. One day, Diamond, one day . . .

Poppy Q said...

The Furry Kids said...

I caught a squirrel with my sister Shadow a long time ago. We played tug of war with it and it went ded. Then I chased Mom around the backyard with the tail and made her scream. hehe Dude, there's nothing like catching one. I hope you get one soon!

Hahaha! Diamond is a smart dog. I bet one of these days he'll catch one ;-)
