Babe - The Mighty Squirrel Hunter

The weather is becoming much more Spring-like. The sun was shining brightly and it was glistening off the snow. The squirrels have become active and my best friend Babe can see them through the windows. Now Babe is the bestest squirrel hunter ever. He is certain that he will get one someday, somehow. I let Babe out and off he goes. Full speed through heavy chest deep snow. Up the hill around the trees and then back to his perch on the deck. The amount of energy that he expends is fantastic. The amount of optimism that he retains in the face of continued failure is encouraging.

He is a good boy. The great yellow hunter. Up the hill, around the trees, down the hill all at full speed and full bore.
