I'm building a .36 cal. Somerset County squirrel rifle right now. As for the squirrel dog, I had a Fox Terrier cross that I use for deer hunting ( I live on the left coast, where we have to kick them out of the brush, and shoot them on the run, a dog helps) that would give me about three hours of brush thrashing, and then switch over to squirrel hunting. She also did this if I missed a shot at a deer.

I have one of those, the little guy in my avatar. Otto will kill most any critter he sees. Did a real fine job after
the fire in August. All the rodents moved into the unburned areas and you could literally stand and see them running every where.
 He spent days hunting and killing, I quit conting after 35 or so. He was one tired, happy dog!
 By the way, that was the first big fire in Wa. back in August. We lost our house, my leather and wood shop,
and 2 storage buildings. I did save most all my BP guns, my 2 heavy target .22s, and 1 modern pistol. But
I lost about 45 modern and antique cartridge guns and pistols, along with everything else.
 We did get all(40) dogs and 5 horses out, but just not enough time or room for it all.

Yes sir,I got the pictures and thank you for sending them. Our first Dachshund was a little red one
that looked like Sam. I named him Rommel.We had him for 13 years before he passed away and we
were way too attached to him but our current one "gretl" is also a neat liitle critter even if she is a
bone head at times.

I think the hard headedness is bred into them, they just will not give up, or quit.

@ Wattlebuster, if there's no squirrels around you can just admire the rifle!  looks great.

Dogshirt, that's a terrible tragedy losing your home and possessions.   Thankfully everyone survived okay.

Only casualty was Otto, hunting on the run the day after the fire, and ran right through a hot spot.
Burned between two toes and singed the hair on all paws, but it didn't slow him down! It's that hard head again! Wink

Great color on the wood Wattlebuster.  Hope to build a squirrel rifle next and soon. 

my critter gitter has put on some pounds since he recently lost his acorns and also is 7 years (my how time flies) old this month.

Here's mine, .40, 42" GM barreled Bedford.  Been out for squirrels once with it, but so far it's killed more deer than limb rats.  Hope to remedy that later in the season...
