The headlines screamed “Heroic Squirrel Saves its Baby!”; “Heroic Squirrel Saves it’s Baby from Savage Dog!”; and “The Poor Squirrel!” OMG! It must have been a horrific scene! We were almost too afraid to look at the pictures…almost. This is what we found. Captions have been added.
A very young black lab notices a squirrel on the ground and immediately introduces himself. Mom watches cautiously.
Without warning, the lab is attacked by the baby squirrel’s mother.
The lab vigorously protects his new little friend from its crazy relative….
Then patiently waits to see if its new friend will be coming out of the tree any time soon.
When you know the whole story the pictures make sense.
