American friends over here

Well it has been a beautifully sunny morning, that is until I went out with the camera to prove it for you. Still you can see it was at least brighter than yesterday.



Here are two of my American friends. The first one above, is an immigrant squirrel not that popular over here;



the other an Appolusa (the spotted one) who is very much loved.

"Charlie" is 31 this year but still as lively as ever and bosses her companion "Smokie" the Shetland around all day and night!
He has an air of Marly's "Puddleglum" being male and of similar great age! We call it "irritable male syndrome".

He looks rather liquid-eyed and fluffy from here. Distance adds charm.

Oh his is full of charm and though not quite a domesticated as this one (link below) he has done the traditional round the table after Dinner routine on very important occasions. He loves people but hates being caught without a little chase first. He looks cuddly in his winter coat which is designed for some of the worst wet/cold conditions of the Shetland Islands off the North of Scotland so he doesn't need a blanket to ware outside.
