Honey Banana Squirrels Doggy Dessert Chef

We have a new resident in our tree out front. It’s the cutest squirrel, he spends all day scampering around, chasing off the noisy birds and just being cute .. and Pee Wee hates him.
For some reason he despises this squirrel and now spends hours at a time barking at him through the window or chasing him once he’s outside.
Since he has no hope of catching the squirrel (thankfully) I decided this was a perfect chance to use my squirrel cookie cutter. Now he can chomp on his nemisis but  insted of being full of … well … squirrel these are full of honey and banana, doesn’t that sound much yummier!
