So I'm at my parents house and I come in from the garage to get some water and the 2 inside dogs are starring at the fireplace and horrible screeching noises are coming from it. I'm instantly thinking some type of rodent. The screeching stops so I grab a flashlight and slowly open the door.....HOLY CRAP!!! A squirrel comes flying out of there like it's tail was on fire and now these two hounds are on the hunt for a clearly distressed and rather pissed squirrel. This thing is all over the place, making sounds I didn't know they could make. Dogs are barking, leaping from furniture. The squirrel is looking for some high ground with an 8 year old weenie dog closing the gap down the hallway. I didn't think that dog could move like that anymore. Just kidding, it was 3 baby birds. Not sure what kind but they aren't pretty and they sound nasty. I'll get some pics up in a few.
