Secret Squirrel?

We have a very friendly squirrel visiting our patio. He comes up to the screen door and looks into the kitchen as if he expects me to let him in for a cup of tea. Today I caught him digging in our flowerboxes, rooting around and rolling in the dirt as if he was a dog. It's probably a good thing I didn't bother planting flowers this year, as they wouldn't have lasted. (Maybe he was a dog in another life, who knows?) One of these days I'll have to take a picture of him.

Oh Sandra, this post reminds me of the baby squirrel that waited for my father to come home from work at the front door of our building. My father once gave him peanuts and since then he'd wait for my dad and follow him to the front door. My dad would come from work and sit on the stoop, the squirrel would climb up my dad's leg and take the peanuts from his hands. I had forgotten about this for a long time, thanks for the smiles.
