It was one of the hardest weeks in Michelle Burleson’s life. She had just returned from the vet, after having taken her beloved dog of 13 years, Budgie Lou, to be put down. There seemed to be nothing in the world that could ease her pain — that is, until she heard a faint knocking on her door.
“My back door was closed and I heard these tap-tap-taps on it,” Burleson told The Dodo. “I went to investigate but saw nothing until I looked down to see a skinny little squirrel staring up at me.”
“When I opened it, she didn't run away,” Burleson added. “We just kind of just looked at each other.”
