My New Fur Baby

Well OK, this one I can't actually keep. We have been in our house now 10 years come October. My dogs have always known that we have a special friend living under our shed as they are constantly sniffing and checking out the hole near the door. Over the past years we have seen him poke his head out but that is about it.

So last weekend I was standing in my driveway talking to my cousin and all of a sudden our little critter friend strolls out from under the car.  I totally freaked quietly - in a good way. I wanted to grab it and cuddle it - ain't he cute?  I don't know why after all these years he's now venturing out - or perhaps this is the first time I'm actually seeing him but since then I've been seeing him frequently.  Of course just never when I have my camera on hand - until today. It was all I could do not to squeal and set my dogs off.

Isn't he just the cutest thing?  This is the only pic I was able to get but my cousin got a really great shot of him - just waiting for him to get off his ass and send it to me.   We have conservation in our back yard and have so many critters running around.  I love it - except for the snakes! One of my boxers always takes them on - oy!

So what do you think we should call this fella?


  1. Awww, he is cute. Is it a beaver?

  2. I believe he is a ground hog. In the spring I had huge sink holes in my yard and wondered where they came from. Now I know! -lol! I've never seen him venture out before. Its cute to see.

  3. I think his name should be Randy. haha. Don't even ask me why!

    I'm a new follower from the hop. Hope you can stop by! www.mamasmusingsblog.blogspot.com
