You gotta do what you gotta do.

I’m pretty sure that my father, uncle and grandfather were mainly wanting to show off the guns and the squirrel was an afterthought. The dog wanted to be petted at the absolute most appropriate time. Everyone who has seen this photo over the years always asks “who bagged the dog?”
Greg G, thank you for embarrassing your elders, hope you didn’t suffer too much for it.
Squirrel brains and scrambled eggs was quite a delicacy back in ‘nem days. Jus’ be sure to get all the shot out!
You have to admit that’s a REALLY BIG squirrel. I’ve never seen one that big before. I don’t think they grow that big in New Jersey.
South Jersey Does – North Jersey must be eating them before they’re full grown.
I live in South Jersey, and some people eat them down here too. Myself excluded, of course.
“He lay there like a slug. It was his only defense.” From A Christmas Story, but it works here too
And it just dawned on my that these poor guys were hunting squirrels with a rabbit dog in a large field — Either the dog died of embarassment or he laughed himself to death. No wonder all they are bringing home is one measley rodent.
Definitely died of embarassment. This is hysterical, the bayonet is absolutely necessary when huntin’ squirrels…
I think I just found our beagle’s great great grand pappy — he sleeps upside down like this all the time — only dog I’ve ever seen go all four feet up when full grown. . . really funny!!!
My beagle sleeps like that too, but only when on a certain side of the couch.
Squirrel. It’s what’s for dinner.
Squirrel. The other other white meat.
Except that squirrel meat is dark and stringy… like coon meat.
Wow… I don’t know whether to be impreesed or not that you know that….
Holy Smokes! that bayonet is a tad excessive! Excellent.
Did the dog have to die too!!!!
“What did you kill?”
“A bottle of Jack Daniels and a bird dog!”
There isn’t a bottle of Jack Daniels in the picture. That isn’t a bird dog and they aren’t bird hunting. If they were, they’d have shotguns instead of rifles. The dog isn’t dead, it is rolling in something. They got a squirrel.
Beside all that, spot on!
Nice to meet you Mr. Killjoy.
seriously! Right there with ya, KJL
Tea Bag militia – 1964 circa. Thats where it began.
Awhole weekend of hunting and that’s all they got. Dog’s laughing his head off!
That’s what I thought. Three proud hunters and one dead squirrel? That ain’t a lot of meat for Ma to throw in the kettle.
Like the dog from “Duck Hunt”!
maybe that’s why they had the dog play dead, so it seems like they got *something* else besides one measly squirrel.
Oh no! Old Yeller!
Remember me the picture of Lee Harvey Oswald & his rifle.
Then three rifle guns for one squirell is that not too excessive ?
and, wait, is there a bayonet too on the second rifle?
They can’t be serious, this is a joke or something, right ?
Or maybe it’s a god damn’d commie squirell from Cuba, so all means are good to stop this invasion.
LOL oh great you mademe laugh out loud at work….now everyone knows I am not working 🙂
