And so, here my dog is, sitting patiently and guarding the backyard from the treacherous squirrels.

I love these fat munchkins. It's a shame I can't get clearer pictures! If I opened the door to get better shots...well, we both know what would happen.
Sometimes my dog will chase squirrels up our house walls, and they will literally yell at her. It's definitely an ongoing feud between the two parties, heh (or Romeo and Juliet?). Sometimes I like to squirrel chatter, so I feel like I'm having a real conversation with them. Actually, I've gotten really good at imitating my dog's whining, to the point where my dog just tilts her head at me, and my mom wonders if the whining came from me or the dog! SCORE. （＾ｖ＾）
P.S. - These pictures were taken in the fall before hibernation, so these squirrels are not fat because I overfed them! I read too much about squirrels to know that if I provide them with too much food, they'll start overpopulating and start relying on human interference for food, instead of naturally foraging.
