Trace and Squirrels

Here is my friend Trace, a terrier. We like to sniff and pee together, run and chase. His people are putting in an whole new front yard for him this week. A new wood fence with lots of places for him to look through, lots of new bushes, a BIG jacaranda tree, BIG bouganvillia, and a stone patio perfect for neighborhood watching through a new mock orange hedge. Could he be any luckier?
Alice wishes he would have spent more time by our front yard last week. The squirrels got every single apricot. Over 50 pounds worth. Alice had to pick them up for several days before they rotted and fruit flies had grandchildren. Aaaaaargh, says Alice. Maybe next year she will put some netting on some of the branches?
Trace likes to bark at squirrels. Any apricot tree would be safe in his yard.
