Richardson’s Ground Squirrels

Wed, May 17, 2017

We’re traveling with TiVo, our Yorkie.

Yorkies are ‘ratters’ in that they were bred to find and kill rats.  Our’s has never done that.  Never even seen a rat and wouldn’t know what to do if he did.  Or so we thought.

Camping in Alberta means that you’re surrounded by Richardson’s ground squirrels.  They look like prairie dogs and live communally in underground tunnels.  TiVo hasn’t seen one yet but he can sure smell them.  And he’s gone crazy.  Want’s to spend every waking moment digging their tunnels.

Was fun to watch when it started but it’s no fun any more.  All he wants is to be taken over to their burrows and sniff and dig. A born hunter.
