Traumatizing a Possum

Our dog, Lucy, loves to be outside in the evenings now that the temperature has started cooling down.  Sunday evening it got to be time to go to bed so I went to let her in.  She was laying on the front porch but was reluctant to come to me.  I didn’t think anything about it.  Finally, after calling her a couple of times she got up and ran inside.  To my horror, there was a very small possum laying next to where Lucy had been.  When I say small possum, I mean it had to be this years model and booted from momma’s pouch not too long ago.  I stood there watching it when it started to stir.  Silly thing had been playing dead.  I was very worried it had been damaged by Lucy so Glen and I went out and it immediately played dead again.  We inspected it as best we could and didn’t see any blood so we decided to let it be and see if it would leave or stay on the porch.  Luckily, as soon as the porch light went out the little fella took off at a fast pace.  We have no idea if Lucy was playing with it or if she was babying it because the poor thing was very wet with her slobber… rough housing or giving it a bath?  Thank you God for her not finding a skunk!


I know it looks like the little guy is bleeding in the picture, but I assure you, it is slobber.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
