The dogs are quick to warn me about any new visitors to the backyard. Accustomed to squirrels and rabbits, and the multitude of birds, they seldom pay attention to those. A sharp yelp! yelp! usually means “Mom, grab your camera! Come quick!”
The groundhog usually hangs around in the summertime, but the chipmunks are a delightful new addition to our garden this year.
