so tragic i can hardly type it.

i was driving with sarah down my street, and we had to swerve to miss a squirell that was laying on the road...and just as we passed it (with a wide margin) we saw it drag itself out of harm's way with only it's front paws, it's lower half dragging uselessly behind it! awww, man! it wasn't bloody or in any other way obviously injured, but it was the saddest thing i've seen in a long time in nature. poor baby...

It's all in how you look at it . . . how strong of the little one to be pulling its weight when it seems like the world is crashing down on him/her, how brave & strong, heroic, way to go, little squirrel!

i can't believe you crushed a squirrel. what did it ever do to you? SQUIRREL HATER!!!

rachel said...

you misread - we did NOT crush the squirell. we in fact, avoided it. it was already wounded.
