Another visit in the night!

We got up this morning to find that the raccoon had visited again! Had taken off the lid to the trash can that we keep the dog and cat food in.


So Rudy took a bungee cord and fastened the lid on the can. Let’s hope this raccoon doesn’t out smart us again and get into the can again.

We also have gophers building mounds in our lawn every where and squirrels for Lucy to chase all of the time.

Living in a rural setting has it’s good and bad, but wouldn’t have it any other way, except when I run into a snake.

I remember when Shasta tangled with a skunk when she was a puppy, wow what a stink! Mona washed her in tomato juice and we had a pink puppy for a very long time!

And before that this morning, I found a tick walking up the dining room wall above Lucy’s kennel. So off to  Petco to buy drops to put on Lucy, came home and gave her a bath and checked her every where for ticks! Guees it’s tick season now!

I better call Gina and have her check Dude!

    No ticks . . . Thank God!

    Well, the bungee cord idea almost didn’t work, huh? Damn raccoons! 🙂
