During our recent camping trip to Mirror Lake we were visited by lots and lots of cute little chipmunks. They were brave little chipmunks because despite Petal and cousin Penny barking at and trying to chase them, they always returned. I think they enjoyed teasing the girls. They’d run through our camp site, in plain and clear sight, then dive into a bush or behind a rock or up a tree.
Petal just loved seeing these little guys and would whine, cry and bark. She even gave them her best play bows and play dances to try and convince them she was friendly and just wanted to play. When that didn’t work, she tried to follow one of the little chipmunks up a tree he decided to hide in.
Despite all her efforts and good intentions, she was never able to convince one to play with her. Poor little Petal.
