The Tail-less Squirrel

This is our favorite squirrel in all the land. This spring he was little and wee and looked for all the world like a genetically altered rabbit. Yet he grew all summer into the bunchy great lad you see before you. We named him Bob because of his bob-tail. When he is out running around the courtyard, he still looks like a weird rabbit. The other squirrels chase him and chatter at him and seem to be making fun of him. Nature does not like the oddball.
