We were in Tessier Gardens last Saturday, trying to entice ‘Sammi’ the squizzler down for some peanuts.
Admittedly, we didn’t have to ‘try’ very hard. He was scrambling down that oak tree and into our cupped hands quicker than a ferret up a drainpipe.
He was having a good look at Haze, eyeballing her, checking out her peanut presenting credentials. Satisfied her intentions were friendly, he proceeded to feed gently and greedily from her hands.
We’ll have him sat on the branches of our shoulders next time, fluffed up and bushy tailed, squizzling our necks.
