The Story of Buddy

This is a picture of Buddy.  Now you may be thinking to yourself "Just a picture of a squirrel"    But you see Buddy is not your average squirrel. Sure he will come near you when he wants some nuts or acorns as most squirrels do, but Buddy acts more like a dog or cat.  He comes to the office door everyday between 12 noon and 12:15 and he's always on time.   In this picture Buddy is peering through the glass door looking for Loretta, our office manager because she has not given him his treat for the day. She’s late and he's not happy.  After waiting a few minutes he jumps down on ground puts his face against the glass. He will then scratch the glass the get your attention.  If you go to the door he will wait as if saying “where’s my treat?”  I wanted to take a picture of him with his face against the glass, but by the time I went got my P&S he had jump back  on the ledge.  When she finally takes him his treat he gets all happy and follows her to where she put his treat, all the while he's making that chattering noise.  Now Buddy is a somewhat selfish squirrel.  He will not share with his friends. He chases them away if they come anywhere near the office door.  He sits there and eats his food and no matter who passes by,  he does not move until he's finish.   Short  video to follow.
