The dog was having a time picking up any scent. He did tree once but we could not see any squirrels. Likely a den tree. The boys did get to pepper some cans at the end of the day. We saw 4 squirrels when we were leaving, 3 at a feeder in someones yard and one that ran across the street to private property. The Pacific gray is one of the most pretty squirrels that I have seen, perhaps we will be able to show a picture soon.
