These two dashing defenders of their domicile had quite a bit of excitement last night.
After a late supper, we were sitting in the living room trying to relax after a hectic day, when Jack, our little black doggie started whining to go outside. He was out for some time barking like crazy which is not unusual. We do need the dog whisperer here! After a while I let his brother, Mikey out too and together they were waking the entire neighborhood. Or at least disturbing them during their favorite t.v. shows.
I decided I might better go out and take a peek
since no one else in the house seemed concerned and make sure it wasn't a burglar they were keeping at bay!
But, THIS is what I saw......
They were barking at this HUGE possum! I got way too close for comfort before I saw him peering down at his enemies! So I screamed quite loudly and ran in the house with the dogs close on my heels!
Then I risked life and limb to go back out and take this picture, mainly to show my husband how big that sucker was!
I mean, this possum could have jumped on the dogs or me and bitten us. The dogs have had their rabies shots.....but I haven't!
I told the two conquering heros thank you and prayed they had done their business for the night because there was NO WAY we were going back in the yard!
So my question is this.......where does this monster possum live during the day?
