They hopped together for as long as I can remember. There were few occasions when I tried to capture their pictures together in vain. They were fun to watch. Then just before spring the other one died.I saw the remaining squirrel hop from tree to tree alone. My husband and I regretted the fact that he doesn't have anyone to play with anymore. Well,that's life I told him. But today, I saw two squirrels up on the tree and I smile to myself.
Indeed, a squirrel's life is full of surprises and that somehow Chip will end up hopping with Dale no matter what.
