On a completely unrelated note, we had some excitement around here this morning. The dogs suddenly burst out barking. We couldn't figure out what their problem was until we looked out back. There was a HUGE possum against the back fence! Buddy (the Bernese Mtn Dog) had it backed into a corner--he was barking but wagging his tail at it. Kenya (the Newfoundland) was keeping herself between it and the house, barking furiously as she backed towards the house. It was kind of funny to see these big dogs going ballistic over this (comparatively) small animal (it really was quite large and ugly--think ROUS). We had to bring the dogs in so it could go back to wherever it came from. As soon as we let them back out, they went off on a mad dash to find it but he was gone, thankfully.
Happy Friday, everyone!
