I am going to start this post off by saying, I live in the city. The suburbs to be exact. But I do not live in the country. You wouldn't know that from all the wildlife I have been around lately.
Yesterday morning I all of a sudden hear Derby howling at the window (he howl/barks, it's the beagle in him). I didn't see anything so I just think Derby is crazy. But he keeps howling at something, so I finally look out the window a little harder to see what is going on. And what do I spy, but this little fella.
Yes, that would be a little skunk in the picture. It looks like a baby skunk, so I am sure there is a mama skunk around somewhere too. I didn't go outside and didn't let the dogs outside for quite a while, and I guess he wandered off. I just hope I don't end up with a skunked dog anytime soon.
To add to my animal adventure birds have been attacking both my house and my rental house. This morning I came outside to a dead bird on my front porch. I don't do well with live animals, let alone dead ones. So I got a shovel and moved him to a better "final resting place."
At my rental house, a bird flew down the chimney and must have been flying around the inside of my house for quite a while before he final died. Luckily I had my husband with me that time, so he got to move the bird outside.
The two dogs are enough for me. I could use a few less encounters with nature.
