Rite of a Longbranch Spring: Dog vs. Squirrel

Maddee goes eye-to-eye with Douglas, the rascally rodent. We’ll see if this is the year the goofy golden doodle gets her prize.

And so it begins. The rite of Spring: Crafty squirrel go eye-to-eye with goofy golden doodle.

As far as caustic battles go between two opposing forces — Wiley Coyote vs. the Roadrunner, Bugs Bunny vs. Elmer Fudd, England vs. Germany (in football, of course) —Maddee’s relationship with Douglas, the rascally rodent, is as acrimonious as they come.

And extremely one sided.

In the years we have lived on Drayton’s Passage, the goofy golden doodle has never come close to the elusive squirrel. Every year my lovely bride would wonder if this would be the year.

We shall see…

The sun has been breaking through the clouds all morning, with a slight breeze lightly pushing our flag to a flutter. Fishing boats have been cruising up and down the passage, and it sure looks like we’ll have more of the same weather we had Saturday.

Good morning Longbranch.
