Last Monday, we were out for our morning walk. It was early, so we were walking together. The dogs were very sniffy, which happens a lot. They were sniffing in the ditch when I heard a rustling and looked and saw this: (note: this is a dramatic reenactment and my first attempt at photo editing!):
That is right, about 2 feet in front of us was a skunk. I was able to quickly pull the dogs across the road, and no one was sprayed! It was a very close encounter! It would have been a horrible way to start the week!
