Ferocious squirrel hunter Nova

... At least Nova thinks so. The squirrels on the other hand, are just mocking the crazy BC puppy

Here's the intruder of the moment, he has buddies as well. There were 3 more squirrels in the neighbours yard that have been using our yard as some sort of squirrel highway all day.


Nova really tried her best to get the squirrels. She tried jumping in the air, jumping up the tree and fence... but if all else fails, she always resorts to intense staring.

"Get down from the tree!"

Nova thinks that she can fly at times, she bounded all over the place as if preparing for take-off.



Squirrel decides to jump to the next tree over.


The chase is on!


Trying hard to reach the squirrel, but no success.


Hmph! Plans have failed, squirrel escapes!

Go get 'em, Nova!!!! Squirrels make such good babysitters! You always can tell where our dogs will be if there are squirrels out and about.

Love the expression in that last shot! She looks like she's plotting for next time! Great pics, Spatx!

Squirrels provide so much entertainment for everyone, little jesters of the animal world.

Oh, cool! I came back for a second look and two more pics downloaded! Just as cute as the rest, of course.

I count 10 pics now. Is that the total, or should I come back again later and see if more download.

There's 10 total, so you got them all! I try to make them smaller size to be more dial-up friendly, but I can't really test it out myself to see. Let me know how it is, I can always post them a bit smaller

LOL, she did a great job...made them change yards

Hobo used to be like that when he was younger...could see a squirrel from a mile. Now, unless they cross his path, all is safe. I miss that. I LOVED these pics...good memories

Nope, all's good. There are just some days that I can't handle pics well at all, so I stop the download and try to right-click "Show Picture" on them one at a time. I musta missed the other two. Made for a lovely surprise the second time around!

Every pic I see I am amazed at how beautiful and unique she looks,I bet people stop and ask what kind of pup she is when out for a walk
She would have fun here I have at least 20 Squirrels around here any day,feeding them helps

Thankyou for the compliments, I'll let Nova know (although it all goes to her head, I swear! She thinks she can get away with anything, then gives me this little cute head tilt...)

I do often get asked what kind of dog she is, because she is fairly small for a Border Collie, about 18" at the withers and 25 lbs. A lot of people make comments about how they only thought BCs came in the 'traditional' black and white pattern... which makes me laugh a little since they can come in multitudes of colours/patterns including merles and tricolours I'm finding now that her fur is growing in more, people are having an easier time identifying her breed. It's kind of like a game for me when I go out with her to see how many can guess correctly

I'm sure if I fed the squirrels I'd have all of them in the neighbourhood visiting, which in theory would be fun, but I don't know if I could stand Nova freaking out and barking at the back window all the time
