Trouble On A Tuesday - Near Misses

 Dear pals,

It is that time of year, where the mornings are getting pretty darn dark again, and there is an increase in the wildlife around our house. 

Recently, at about 5 am (it was much darker than our recreation), we were heading out for our morning walk. Lady was dolled up in her safety vest and headlamp. We had just stepped out the front porch when we both started barking. Lady immediately held us in place and did a scan to see a little black and white butt not 4 feet from us scarring away. She said that is one way to get the heart going.

A few days later, near the mailbox, we were about 6 feet away when what we call the bad black and white kitty scurried into the ditch. We took the long way around where it had been.  Almost every morning we have smelt a skunk on our road. Callie's Dad (who is also up bright and early) said he has seen many around.

We are all just hoping we don't get skunked! 

Lee and Phod who so far only smell like dog!

    Oh my... I wish for you, too, that you remain unskunked! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. I much prefer the dog smell over skunk smell and its a good thing you barked and Lady listened.

  3. Steer clear of those stinky kitties! I've never been skunked and I never want to be.

  4. That sure were a couple of close calls. We are keeping our paws crossed that you don't get skunked on your morning walks.

  5. I will never ever no never forget the first time I smelled a skunk. We were visiting Bryan's brother in Syracuse...it was such a beautiful day out on a stroll in nature when our noses were assualted. I guess we got too close but thankfully no one got sprayed.
    Hugs Cecilia

  6. Paws crossed that is the closest you come to those black and white kitties this smelly season!

  7. Are skunk smells really so bad?
    Just wondering...
