This is Easy. He came down from the top of a nearby silver maple to say hi & grab a quick snack. I’ve gone through close to 10lbs of peanuts in 3 weeks. The hoarde is hungry. Gonna have to get the shop vac out to clean up the shells on the ground.

No way she can still feel her legs.

Holy cow, the pic almost looks photoshopped.

 

Those have to be two of the biggest puppers I've seen, what is the breed, and how much do they weigh?  

 

They look awesome, you must have a big house to fit them in it 🤣

My assumption is St. Bernard. The white one in the back I am not sure of.

I believe the white dog in the back is a golden retriever, my wife wants one so bad (I do too but don’t tell her that)

@RipzLipz, I’m in Toledo and seeing those fox squirrels everywhere! 

Probably pretty cold up there, no? Just turned off cold where I’m located (just south of Indy) right after Xmas. I noticed the neighborhood squirrels feeding more heavily when the weather got colder. They seem to do quite a bit of eating & sleeping. I’m not sure how far south they are but I know north of here, mostly MI & WI that I’ve noticed, have some grays (I think) & foxes with black fur. Will dig up a pic of what I believe was a black colored gray squirrel I saw a few years ago when up near Traverse City, MI one June.

As @TnRiver46 stated as I was typing my typical long-winded response, likely a retriever of some sort, given the head shape. All big baybees.

 

All the dog pics make me quickly say to myself, "You wanna go outside?" in an excited manner. I love getting dogs riled up & happy.

@RipzLipz, yeah it’s cold but not terrible, it was snowing when I left TN so not much different except the wind. 
 

I spend a decent amount of time in Michigan and take photos of the black squirrels and people think I’m crazy haha

@TnRiver46 These might be fox squirrels - hard to tell for sure. I just remember their statures weren’t quite as big as most fox squirrels I see. I’ve traveled around the Detroit area for my job quite a bit as well as having spent many weeks in northern WI & have seen much larger black squirrels but these were built more like grays.

I think all the black ones are also fox squirrels but I could be wrong, we have none at home

@TnRiver46 There are also mottled looking fox squirrels in the southeast - mixture of orange/red, black, white & gray. Pretty cool how those colors are isolated to certain areas. I see some color variation locally but it’s usually limited to lighter & darker of their typical rusty color. Quite a few blondes & most of that coloration are females. Currently have one juvenile that’s blonde but she won’t have anything to do with me.

Here in Alabama we have three types, two of which I see often in the backyard.....The Grey and Southern Flying Squirrel, however the Fox Squirrels are significantly south of me in central Alabama.


Saw my first Fox Squirrels back in May fishing in South Alabama at a Bass Ranch.

@AlabamaSpothunter We have reds, grays, flying & fox. Flying squirrels are more nocturnal, IIRC. I’ve yet to see one of those. Reds are super aggressive & smaller than both grays & fox. I never saw a red around here until I was working from home during the pandemic. Much fewer in number by my house. There’s maybe 4-6 in total. They’re much more difficult to keep up with - like little rockets running through the trees & can jump like Spider-man. Sound like little squeaky toys when they get riled up.

Yep! 2 St Bernards and a golden retriever. She's 150 (on the left) and he's down to about 190 (used to be >200 but I've backed down his food a bit to decease the stress on the old fella's joints).

Negative. First time I saw one in Michigan I was chasing it with a camera 😂. I now realize they are quite common and see them all the time up there . At home We have grey squirrels and flying squirrels and on the top of the higher elevation mountains (say maybe 3,000 ft and above) there are red jimmy’s 

 

and I’m guessing we all have chipmunks

This is Ronnie Van Zant.  I swiped this from a Skynyrd page.  The post claims that Ronnie had it mounted and put it in his living room.  Dude loved to fish and has a park with a small lake named after him. Is my mind playing tricks, or is that a B.A.S.S. hat he's wearing?
