Doug, Up Close & Personal

Cute as Clay is, he is going to have to go some to beat Doug.  Linda, the Wildlife Lady, sent me some photos and says Doug is even cuter in person.  This one, with the droopy ears and gift of hay, is my favorite.  Fostering squirrels must be a full-time job.  In addition to eating very well (photo below), Doug gets a bottle twice a day.  Linda admits he's a little old to still be a bottle baby, but likes it so well she's willing to give it to him.  I think it's because he likes the special attention.
The goal of the rescue service is to return creatures to the wild, but after a spread like this, I worry how the squirrels will survive without fresh strawberries and cut-up apples (and maid service).  Linda thanked me for send Doug to her.  I think Doug should be the one sending thanks.

What a cutie Doug is. I think he should be kept as a mascot for the program. And I've used it before in my comments, but with the special attention and a spread like that, "How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm, after they've (he's) seen Par-ee?" He's LIVING in other farm is going to be to his liking, I fear! I think Doug's saga will continue!!
