Bottoms Up!

Sparky the Squirrel – Bottoms Up 1

What has Sparky found?

Some things are worth digging for

Bottoms up my friend!



I was watching Sparky the squirrel rooting around my garden, while I sat under the tree with my afternoon cuppa. Apparently he had eaten all the food I had put out for him and was looking for more.

Suddenly he became very intent on digging something up. So much so that he turned his back on me with a “Bottoms up!”

Whatever he was after was buried deep down. Look at that little bum!

Success! Eventually he found something good to eat and returned to his usual Sparky position. Looking at the hole he’d dug, I now understand the state of my garden!


post script: “Bottoms up” is an expression used to encourage someone to drink up. In raising their glass and drinking, the bottom of the glass can be seen.

Looks like another Daft Friday! Have a good one!

    Cheers to Sparky and that cheeky bum and pretty soon he’ll be asking for a cuppa with his snack!😁 I have holes all over my yard, so obviously after all these years they still don’t believe that they will have endless snacks all year.😁

      haha He does have the cheek to come beg for more food, when he’s only just finished what I put out for him! πŸ˜€

    HAHAHA!! Great Shot!!! I made a calendar for 1999 called “Tail End of the Century”. Each month had a bum (tail) shot. I had it in my office for a year and no one got it! (Or thought it pathetic and said nothing!)

    These photos of Sparky are precious. What a cute bum!! Glad he found his buried treasure and was able to entertain you for awhile and provide you with a post. Give that boy some extra peanuts!!
