Squirrel tracing and snow racing sure makes for a lot of fun in our backyard. Since humans are into contact tracing these days we decided to get into squirrel tracing. Believe me, there is plenty to trace in our backyard. Those tree rats are all over the place! Sometimes we need a break, and that is when the snow racing comes into play. It was snowing on and off which added to the whole fun thing.
Bailie did the most squirrel tracing out of the three of us. See how determined she is? That tree rat obviously ran over the snow and right up that tree!
Olivia also enjoys keeping tabs on the stink of squirrels climbing our trees. She found another tree covered in squirrel smell!
When the squirrel tracks are fresh, Bailie gets some speed in her step as she cruises along the fence line. Unfortunately, we did not catch even one squirrel.
It looks like Olivia was checking the pine trees for rabbits too. Rabbits often live under pine trees, but not when Olivia was there. She decided to get her speed on and hit the road.
As Olivia races and takes a corner, Mom says one can really see how she is all legs. It appears she is pretty determined as she runs too.
Even I, with my short legs, can get some g-force going when I want to be speedy! It sure looks like it, doesn’t it?
Not only does Olivia have long legs, she has a long body. Look at how long she is when she stretches out! People always comment on how long she is when they meet her in the furs!
One doesn’t have to be long, lean and crazy to be in a rush. I like to be slower and steady which works for me, but I am in a rush as you can see. We are hoping for some more snow, and it is supposed to get colder which would be great! TGIF!
