Veggie Dogs Orangutans Goldendoodles Mice Squirrels and an Andean Cock-of-the-Rock

Hurst: Happy Squirrel Awareness month Carol! Are you aware of squirrels?

Carol: Of course I am aware of squirrels, in fact we have an interesting story about a flying squirrel this week. Or maybe I should say a squirrel that tried to fly. On an airplane that is.

Hurst: Hmmm I’m intrigued.  That makes me wonder; do squirrels get frequent flyer points?

Carol: That reminds me of a squirrel joke.  What did the tree squirrel say to the ground squirrel?

Hurst: I’m afraid to ask.

Carol: You can see the farthest from the trees.  What’s a squirrel’s favorite movie?

Hurst: I don’t want to know.

Carol: Saturday Nut Fever

Hurst: I have to go now.
