Coon Dog

Taking a walk through the woods this morning, Roxy discovered a tempting scent. We hurried to catch up to her frantic barks.

Look, I found a critter! It's right here, under this log.

OOOOOH, it is in here. Come on guys, let's tear this log apart!

Okay, it is growling awfully fiercely. But can't I please tear the log apart?

We can go home now, all that barking and digging made me tired and it is just a small coon anyway.

We are thankful to see Roxy feeling so frisky as she was a pretty sick dog about 3 weeks ago. We were hoping for some puppies from her, but instead she contracted a serious infection. She was droopy and not herself, but we had no idea how sick she was. The vet said if we had waited another day to bring her in, he probably would not have been able to save her. She had to be spayed, so no puppies, and the treatment was expensive, but Roxy says she is worth it. She also says we should let her sleep on the couch, but I have to draw the line somewhere!

Until next time, may someone love you enough to let you sleep on the couch!

Silly girl! Glad she didn't actually get ahold of that coon or she could have been very torn up just like Blackie was from his altercation with one a while back. I couldn't seem to make that picture of the coon bigger but from this perspective it looks black and white instead....

Love the picture of the coons eye peaking out of the log.
Sounds like a fun & exciting walk!
