This is what happens when our version of "Hank the Cowboy" dogs are gone:
Jess is "Hank" and Basil is "Drover" ... and they are now living in Houston. This black squirrel has reclaimed the yard, here he's sitting on the neighbor fence eating some treat. A few days ago he was actually prancing around our back deck. Yes, indeed, no dogs to bother him, and the cats could care less.
