Once again it's Sunday and Dante is trying very hard to relax on the deck bench.  After a long day chasing squirrels through the brush and brambles, he's looking forward to a good long rest.

(Note:  Biggify Dante's pictures if you want to truly appreciate all of his different expressions.)

Dante just lies back and is about to close his eyes ...

... when he hears a rather loud crunching sound!

"O good grief!  Not YOO again!!!", exclaims Dante.

Then his ears perk up once more when he hears the same crunching sound -- this time in stereo!

"Weely?", says he, giving the little rogue a raspberry in return.

 "Get outta heer and leave me in peace!", Dante shouts.

All to no avail.  "Dere's nuttin' worse dan lissening to loud chewing sounds -- speshully wen dey're NOT yours!"

Dante is furious!  He's considering whether to run the little squirrel burgers out of there, or to barbecue them.

"Oh Heaven helps me", he says finally.  "I gives up!  Live and let eat -- kin I go to sleep now?"
