Home Sweet Home

Seems that even though I'm not home, someone else feels completely at home there - a family of raccoons:

And quoting the email from hubby:
"Big Mama was not happy - she went after the handler!


Not to worry folks, everybody - raccoons and handler - is well.

Every once in a while, I see a fox running through my back yard. The first time I saw it, I thought, "That is the weirdest looking dog I have ever seen!"

They're a pain, but they're so darn cute! We live in a rural area. Regularly, I see deer, coyotes, racoons, groundhogs, skunks, voles, bunnies, partridges, swans, geese, ducks, owls and even a peacock once (probably escaped a farm). We're also near a conservation area so we get a lot of unique species of birds.
Hope you're having a nice weekend!

Fred, confusing a fox with a dog? :)

Nienke, wow, you're so lucky.
I don't know if I'd say 'cute' about raccoons. Maybe from a distance. Usually I find them quite vicious and not afraid of humans.

FredCQ said...

Well, a fox is not what I would call a common place animal where I live.

Melly said...

Oh, okay then :)
Toronto has many many raccoons. I always see them.

Aww they look so cute :D I know, I know, just not anywhere near your house :D I love animals. Even the ones that drive you nuts, like raccoons or deer :D

We get lots of deer here. They come a long and eat my mom's flowers. She gets frustrated at times but in the end never mad. After all we did take over their home with housed. And they're just so GORGEOUS.

Oh then we get the foxes and wild turkeys. And we've got a lake by us so we get the geese and their babies every year and I still go awe look at how cute they are :D

Jennifer, you're so lucky. I love it when we go up north and see all the deer and all that, but deep in the heart of T.O. it's only raccoons, squirrels and skunks for us.
