Late last night, I went outside with my pups, looked over on the sidewalk and saw this approaching ….tilt your screen, look closely, notice the long tail! Remember it is after 11pm.
I took a picture from a distance with my phone (What can I say? I blog.), called my barking pups, and raced them to the door. Safely inside, I asked Cole to take a look see. He went outside and immediately turned around, came inside, and locked the doors. We both made sure the windows were closed.
This morning, I tentatively investigated before letting my pups head outdoors. I’m not brave. I just don’t want to put myself in the position of having to wrestle a varmint out of one of my pups’ mouths. I don’t let fear get in the way of common sense. A dead varmint on the sidewalk is better than…well, never mind.
Fortunately, the suggestion of what might be, darkness, and overactive imaginations pushed us to jump to an unfounded conclusion.
Ok, it wasn’t a rodent, but look at those very fierce needles on that long branch! And in the light of our recent rodent issues, can you blame me for jumping to conclusions?
Taking deep cleansing breaths and wishing my sweet mother was visiting with her gun.
