Tiny Treasure~

This tiny treasure apparently fell out of his nest sometime last night or yesterday. Our chihuahua barked for 10 minutes trying to get our attention- finally I told Luke to go check out what he was barking at. This is what he found- a tiny baby squirrel.
Isn't he adorable? Luke wanted to take care of him so I told him that meant dedicated feeding etc. - so he is currently a care-taker! :)
I think his eyes should be open in a few days-if he gains his strength back.
Ya just never know what treasure you'll find in the woods.
