Bugsy had heard the old cliche about "even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while," and he set out to prove that even a blind dog can tree a squirrel once in a while.
But this time Alayne saw him running around the base of the big spruce tree in circles, head up, barking at something in the tree. As she got closer, she could hear the loud and annoyed chattering of a squirrel. Yes, Bugsy had managed to tree a squirrel:
And he wasn't letting the squirrel come down. As Alayne moved in with the camera to get a closer shot, the squirrel looked right at Alayne and his chattering became even more insistent ... as if he were saying, "Lady, will you get that confounded dog out of here so I can come down?!?"
Bowing to the wishes of the treed squirrel, Alayne took a triumphant Bugsy back inside with her. I'm sure Mr. Squirrel went home and told Mrs. Squirrel, "You won't believe what happened to me today."
