Squirrels and dogs have a relationship as complicated as Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. Natural antagonists, sure, but you can’t deny the animal magnetism. In honor of National Squirrel Appreciation Day, here are four dogs who just can’t resist the call of the squirrel … and three who managed to make friends. Use the force, canine comrades!
…yet so far.

This burly Bernese is in on this squirrelly guy’s game plan, but unfortunately, his buddy might have to find a better spot to hide away his Winter stash. Nice try, Monsieur Squirrel. Maybe try the bush in the backyard instead?
