Sorry everyone for the super late Thanksgiving post. Better late than never though right? In this picture above I brought Sonic inside, because there was a squirrel in the tree and he was going nuts! I know that Sonic wouldn't intentionally hurt the squirrel because I have taught him better than that. I was just worried that the squirrel would have heart failure from all the barking. This was Sonic's first squirrel sighting ever I think. If you look on the first branch on the right you can kind of see the squirrel up there.

Panther sunbathing. He enjoys basking in the sun whenever he can. It's not often sunny here like he was used to. Good bye fall, hello Christmas!
