Last summer, I saw a squirrel without a tail in our yard a couple times. This year I've already seen him more than a couple times either in our yard or our neighbor's. It's such an odd feeling to be able to identify a particular squirrel, because really, they all kind of look alike. (They probably think we all look alike, too.) I feel somewhat attached to him and call him Stumpy and hope the day never comes when I see the corpse of a tailless squirrel in the middle of the road.
Here's a really bad picture of him taken with my cellphone (you can click to get a slightly larger, equally bad picture):
Aw! Stumpy has a bunny for a friend.
