Reading this one I just flash to one of my favorite dog moments. I my lab mix tried to climb a tree after he almost caught a squirrel on the ground. With me and my brother standing there he attempted, for the first time, to climb a tree. Lept up it a couple times and even got some impressive distance. But it wasn’t going to happen.
I think the squirrel might have enjoyed if it caught it. He just wanted to slurp it. That mutt was many things, but predator was not on that list. Otherwise why did kittens bully him?
