Ever since Copper became a member of our family,
squirrels have become the “bane of my existence!”
He shows tremendous confidence in being able
to catch the fast little critters, but to no avail.
Jumping in the air
feeling so close, yet so far
there’s hope for next time
High up in the sky
looking down as if to smile
they always prevail
(but Copper also shares mellow moments
where he breathes in the beauty around him)
The enjoyment and fun our furry pets provide us
is priceless and worth a million smiles…

Thanks, Deb! He’s very funny and lovable at the same time. Definitely a joy to our family! Love and hugs to you and have a great weekend! xoxo
There was a cat who used to torment our old dog by sittinng on the window and looking at her. It was pure evil!!!
The same scenario; different tormentor. 🙂
This is sweet Lauren. Lots of love and care here.
Thanks, Kim! He is definitely spoiled with lots of kisses and hugs! 🙂
Ah, yes, ‘priceless and worth a million smiles’ 🙂 🙂 🙂 xxxxx
Thanks for agreeing, Marina! Happy weekend, my friend…hugs! xx 🙂
Animals are a special gift to mankind.
Yes they are; thanks for your comment, Ian!
This really warms my doggy heart. Super!
I’m glad, Jean! Thank you! They are truly part of our families! 🙂
Lauren… Dogs do what Dogs love doing, and chasing squirrels I am sure Copper justs loves.. Great photo.. The Sunflowers have been beautiful this year lasting ages.. Wishing you a beautiful New Week. Hugs Sue xox
Yes, they do, but it’s annoying, at times. 🙂 Thanks, Sue, and I love sunflowers! I’ve never been the passionate gardener like my Mom was, but my appreciation for flowers has grown as I’ve gotten older. I love their beauty, colors and serenity. Hugs back for a great week, too! ♥
Copper is such a connoisseur! Have a fabulous, sweet week, my darling!
Thanks, my sweet friend! He’s a cutie pie, for sure! 😉 Have a fabulous week, too! Hugs! xoxo
He looks like such a darling! 🙂
Thanks, Chatty! He is, for sure; very lovable and keeps us on our toes, too! 🙂
And if Cooper ever caught a squirrel, he probably wouldn’t know what to do with it.
I hope you’re right, Binky..because what I fear isn’t what I’d want to happen, but he is a dog…sorry for my late reply!
Thoroughly enjoyed tha post.
Pics are great, especially Copper and the flower.

Thanks so much, Ian, and I’m so sorry for replying late…I’m glad you enjoyed this canine post and I loved that photo my daughter took, too, of Copper and the flower. Perfect timing! Have a wonderful weekend, my friend…
Wonderful Lauren! And you are so right about the joy our animals bring! Good luck Copper! 😊❤️ Xx
Thanks, Chris, and it seems I’m late on a few other comments, too, so sorry! 🙂 Yes, our pets bring us so much joy (except when I’m walking Copper and he sees a squirrel, sigh) 🙂 Have a great weekend, my friend! HBL ♥
Oh naughty boy Copper !!! Your mum wanted to show us what a great squirrel chaser you are! Never stop trying my boy ! Besides,Lauren clearly expressed it in her poetic words …Never give up Copper … “There’s hope for next time” ,she says !
Who bothers about this patch of grass when sees Copper sniffing these brilliant sunflowers !!!
Love to you Lauren and Copper ❤❤❤ ,please give him a big hug for me 🙂 xxx
Oh, Doda, you are too funny! I love your humor and yes, he will keep trying and will continue to be “trying” for his mum, too! 😀 But that’s okay, he makes up for all the mischief with his lovable, adorable personality. And the grass, well, that’s just me thinking why wasn’t this photo taken where the grass looked good? Heehee
But, you’re right, who cares! Sorry I’m late in replying…once in awhile, some comments slip through and it seems I’m slow on a few others, too. Anyway, much love to you and have a lovely weekend! ♥ xo
I truly miss those days having a dog around home. Such a precious relationship we have with them. Some day again soon hopefully we will once again have a beautiful friend as your own to share in our lives.
They really do add more love to the family mix and a little more spice, too, which is worth it if you can make it through. 🙂 I hope you get the chance soon, Don!
Squirrels are the bane and entertainment of my life (regarding my bird feeders)! 🙂 And another wonderful Copper photo! XO ♥
They continue to be the bane of my existence as long as Copper goes wild, Diane! 🙂 Thanks for the photo complement; hope you’re doing well and making progress! ♥ xo
