I'm Scared... by CheeseburgerBrown (4.00 / 1) #1 Fri Apr 14, 2006 at 11:08:46 AM EST
...even when tiny things growl.

When something is really pissed off, no matter how small it is, it's a bit daunting. Have you ever confronted an angry squirrel? It's not good mojo.

I am from a small, unknown country in the north called Ca-na-da. We are a simple, grease-loving people who enjoy le weekend de ski.

chipmonks and hummingbirds, and I'd not care to take on either of them. I gather the chipmonks will raid hummingbird nests. My folks live at the edge of the national forest, in scrub oak woods. The trees are 10' tall, max, and in many places more like six.

Papa hummingbird (you'll never meet a fiercer creature, pound for pound) hovers sixty feet in the air, his high pitched little voice chopped by his wing beats. And then he dives, full force, screaming through the woods at 40 mph, easy, within inches of a very upset chipmonk. Who fusses back at him, powerless to do more.

Angry squirrel. by aphrael (2.00 / 0) #6 Fri Apr 14, 2006 at 06:34:28 PM EST
I once saw an angry squirrel throwing rocks at a rattlesnake which had made off with its mate.

It followed the rattlesnake for a good long time before the people watching it scared it off.

The poor thing was determined that if it threw things at the rattlensake for long enough, it would get its (obviously dead to my eyes) mate back.

If television is a babysitter, the internet is a drunk librarian who won't shut up.

Poor squirrel. Poor rattlesnake, too, I'm guessing, though I find it harder to bond (and, thus, to empathize) with reptiles.

Do you get hearded as well? by wumpus (4.00 / 1) #3 Fri Apr 14, 2006 at 12:53:23 PM EST
Long, long, ago, I had a Samoyed (other Husites have mentioned them, they're more fur than dog).  Samoyeds do not heard sheep, but will heard raindeer  (presumably only usefull for Inuit or other indians in the US).  The only time it was noticable was when she decided to do the Lassie (come out and see) routine, then lay down since the family was all together.

When she's convinced we're amenable to walkies, she tries to herd us out the door. At supper time she'll try to herd anybody who's not sitting down into the kitchen.

My boss does indeed rock. by toxicfur (4.00 / 1) #4 Fri Apr 14, 2006 at 01:14:19 PM EST
It has been a most excellent day.

Teh Dawg certainly does have ideas about what the Right Choice is, and I often don't understand WTF she's going on about. Someday, I'll dig up the (paper) diary entry I wrote the first day she was living with me - in short, we were both wondering if this was gonna work. Even when she's a ball of furry insanity, though, I still love her.
