So this is what really happened!
Dad took us out for our walk. We were minding our own business....which means we were doing our job...looking for rabbits and squirrels when all of the sudden there were 3 squirrels in front of us!!! OMG!!!! well, they saw right when we saw them! We saw opportunity and we went for them!!!! Dad...well...he just wasn't paying enough attention to us so he didn't totally appreciate our speed and agility (especially Rippy's...after all dad...she was a great racer in her day!!!)!!!! Unfortunately, those squirrels leaped for the tree and got away....OMG you should have heard them...have to admit...they were pretty speedy as well!
