Sid Finds the Squeak

It was still grey and rainy here yesterday, and Sid was getting restless. Due to the rain all weekend, we’d been cooped up indoors the whole time, staring at the walls. When Sid gets antsy, we usually send him on a “squirrel hunt” with his Hide-A-Squirrel toy (still one of his favorites even after many months!).

This time I kept hiding a squirrel behind my back and squeaking it when he least suspected it. The expression on his face leads me to believe he thought it was one of the departed squirrels squeaking from beyond the grave. That is, until I waved the tail in his face.

And the Winner is…

It’s time to reveal the winner of last week’s Pug Slope Guessing Game!

We had three very, very smart guesses about why Sid is so excited in this photo:

From Noodles:

Hmmmmm, speaking about me here, that look is usually reserved for FOOD.
Love Noodles

From Mochi, Macho, and Marshmallow:

If it were us and your were hold any kind of food, our butts would not be on the floor sitting. So we guess it your squirrel toy.

And from Mia:

Froggy toy? Oh, and I hope the prize is a visit!

So, what was Sid so excited about in that photo?

Nuts for Squirrels

Sid’s birthday present (besides his super special cake) was a Hide-a-Squirrel by Kyjen. Marvel as Sid extracts the mini squirrels from their tree stump faster than the speed of light.

Sid’s Baby Squirrels

In addition to Sid’s birthday cake, he also received a new toy, or rather  toys-within-a-toy. We got him a Kyjen Hide-a-Squirrel toy from a pet store in the west village called Canine Styles. This has become his favorite toy. We are putting together a video highlighting his manic technique of extracting the mini squirrels from the plush tree stump – look for that soon.

Aside from the fun derived from pulling the squirrels out of the stump, Sid also finds pleasure in carrying the baby squirrels around in his mouth and gently squeezing them. He also likes to collect them all onto his bed and then rest his head on them.

Even though Sid considers himself a “tough guy”, he isn’t afraid to show his tender side to his new baby squirrel posse.
