Franky I just want you to know that our mom person had a dream last night about the number 87 for real. and she couldn't stop herself out of it all night long. everything was 87 everywhere. it was like she was trapped in your head and couldn't get out. in the end, she literally had to sit up in bed, wake up and roll over to get past the strange dream. thought you'd like to know the effect you have--hehehe! love Guinness

Minna Krebs said...


I thoughts the swimming squirrel was some kind of freaks of nature. Butt in my entire life I haves never even contemplated a FLYING squirrel!!

They DO looks all evil in the eyeballs, don't they?

Times to rally our troops and go into Civil Defenses Mode against this onslaught! I thinks Puddles and Crew shoulds lead this endeavor(beings she has the most recent battle experience)

NOOOOOOOoooooooooooo! This is a very much disturbing turn of events, Frankie! What can we do to stop it? I mean, I'm doing my part out in my back yard but what do I do if they start flying out of the trees at me? (shudder)

Very concerned wiggles & wags,

PeeS. On another notes, I sent you a paw-mail last night. Lets me know if you didn't gets it.

A MilShelb Mom said...

Holy cow! Thanks for the warning. We will now be on the look out for flying squirrels! We already knew they could jump long distances from tree to tree to get away from us. We are not happy to know that they may be flying!!! AAHHH!
We read Puddle's post yesterday. Wasn't the CRAZY?! We thought so! We would have been so excited if we had one of those in our yard!

Yikes, land, sea, and water - they are taking over our world. We just have to put a stop to this.

Hot??? How about TORRID!!! It was so hot when we went out at 5:00 this morning - like a hot furnace blast of air.

We were quite impressed with the warrior Puddles and Company.

My friend, you probably know by now that "squirrels" are a subject we will agree to disagree on. I can't imagine life without my squirrels to chase. I'm all for the protection of squirrels. I'm sorry...

Nanny D said...

I didn't know squirrels could swim, Frankie! I walk my dogs by the lake all the time and if they saw a swimmers like that they would go after them right away!

Dear Frankie - since I keep seeing you on so many other blogs, and since we've been feuding for about 187 days now, I thought maybe it was time to throw you a bone... so here goes...

I hope it makes it to Ohio.

Nanny D said...

Ah, yes, we have those flying rat squirrel thingies. We don't get the regular squirrel that everyone else seems to have (running along the ground), but we do have those flying type. They are quite freaky if you ask us.

Sargeant said...

Hey Frankie! It's Cousin Sarge. Guess what!!! You'll never believe it, but we had flying squirrels living in a bird house in my yard last summer! There were about 87 (or maybe 3) of them living in there. They came out right at dusk, ran up the tree and then sometimes sat and ate out of our bird feeders. I didn't think they were scary, but I sure wanted to get 'em. They are certainly related the munks that keep mocking me.

Grr and Woof,
