Daddy's Squirrel

Go check out the other PHABULOUS Phriday Fotos over at Candid Carries HERE
I went to my Daddy's house on Thursday morning and saw a squirrel sitting out in the yard eating nuts, so I snapped a couple of pictures of the cute little fellow then I went into the house and told Daddy and Dorothy that I had just seen a squirrel. Daddy asked me if I wanted some close up pictures, I said yes ,so he went to the back room and got a couple of pecans and went out into the back yard. I followed along with my trusty camera... We didnt see the squirrel right away so daddy started shaking the pecans around in his hands and in a minute I spotted him, peeking out from behind a limb and as daddy got closer to him , he scampered over to daddy. ,I could not believe my eyes



This is a wild squirrel who has just gotten used to Daddy and Dorothy walking around, and taking care of their yard. Dorothy says he comes up to her all the time, sometimes annoying her. I guess he is their pet.

Daddy has shown the squirrel that he can be trusted. Trust means a lot and has to be earned. It is quite evident that daddy has earned it with this little squirrel!

That is so cool!

Seems like he had another squirrel a couple of years ago that died or something.
