Never Underestimate the Wrath of a Mother

Thanks to our friends Charlie and Faye for sending me the following pictures of an encounter between a dog and a couple of squirrels. It seems one of the mother squirrel’s babies is on the ground and is being checked out by this dog. Scroll down and see what happens.

A baby squirrel is in the clutches of this dog, but mother is coming to the rescue. s1
Mom has no fear! She jumps right up in that dog’s face! s2
Mom’s on the offense and the baby is free. The dog is not sure what to do. s3
Mom and baby squirrel go up the tree, back to the nest.

The dog has a funny expression, doesn’t he?

Never underestimate the wrath and fury of an upset mother!

This applies to all species!

Report on the Sick and Ailing 
Beverly is doing good. Her nose is stopped up and still draining from the surgery. One of the worst parts is that she has to sleep sitting up until she sees the doctor again on Feb.2. She’s in good spirits! She camped out on the sofa in the family room where I can keep a sharp eye on her.

This old Granddaddy has been better. I still haven’t gotten completely over that flu bug or whatever it was that hit me last week. I am still very weak, with no energy, and start perspiring at he very little exertion. So I went back to see my doctor yesterday. He said I was fighting some sore of infection. He had me x-rayed to check for pneumonia, which was a negative. He went ahead a put me on a high power antibiotic. We’ll see what happens. Last night and this morning I had a low grade fever.

Joke of the Day

This woman rushes to see her doctor, looking very much worried and all strung out. She rattles off, "Doctor, take a look at me. When I woke up this morning, I looked at myself in the mirror and saw my hair all wiry and frazzled up, my skin was all wrinkled and pasty, my eyes were blood-shot and bugging out, and I had this corpse-like look on my face! What's wrong with me, Doctor?"

The doctor looks her over for a couple of minutes, then calmly says, "Well, I can tell you that there ain't nothing wrong with your eyesight."

Tell Beverly that I know what she means about sleeping sitting up. I had some minor sinus surgery last year and I remember trying to sleep sitting up. I have no problem doing that what I don't have to though! HA! Hope you both get to feeling better soon! Love ya! Karen

loved the pictures of the dog/squirrel encounter; definitely us moms seem to do whatever we can to protect our babes, no matter how old they are

what a trooper for Beverly to have to sit sitting up for close to 10 days! I bet she'll be so glad to be back in her regular bed after her visit in February

sorry you are taking long to mend; glad you went to the doctor to get some heavy-duty medicine; hoping that does the trick to get you feeling back to your usual self

Kevin shared your blog with me and I am glad that he did. I had no idea you and Beverly were having health issues. What type of surgery did Beverly have? If I can do anything, like running lunch by your house one day, please let me know. I would love to help out. My work number is 229-6899 so call me if you think of something.
