Mama Squirrel!!

Can you imagine being the photographer who caught this?


Mom takes action!!

Dog gets it from Mom and baby gets away!

Mother consoles baby and...
The look on the dog's face is priceless... This has to be
what he is thinking...

"What the hell happened
? Did I just get my
butt kicked by a squirrel?"

Here you have got some really good action! Nothing like mother's love to save both child (and the day for us bloggers) :-)

Don't mess with Mama!

That is a lifetime of a shot and not one but the whole sequence. Excellent.

"You mess with my baby and I’ll give you what for!"

It really pays to have camera at the ready at all times.

Great action shots, and it looks like somebody was having fun! :-)

Hugs for the sweet Schnauzer,
Merisi

What a fantastic series! Sometimes size does matter - the little guy takes home the trophy! :)

Our neighbor just got a black lab puppy. So very cute but what a handful. They take him outside for 30 minutes and he does nothing. Steps inside the door and puddles all over the place! It's gonna take a while!

That tribute to Sam is just beautiful, Sylvia!

You certainly know how to make me laugh!

I haven't seen this series before, it's truly classic. Never mess with a child near it's mother!

Sandy Carlson said...

You go, girl!

I think it was the element of surprise and had he not been caught off guard it would have been different. But Mothers tap into hidden resources when their child is in danger.

Dog," What was that???"

Antonette Stiebritz said...

If I was the photographer, I'd try to save the baby squirrel. Not sit there and take pictures. Pfft!

George said...

Don't mess with a Mama of any species. From the look on the dog's face, I think he learned that lesson.

Wow that really is amazing - but I know how momma squirrel did that - it echoes what happened with me in the rat episode (Menosukhi Monday at Meno this week). Preservation of the ones we love is dominant at times like this.

Hugs Sylvia and keep strong. YAM
