He also likes succulents. And I have to admit that after he ate my newly purchased “living stone” plant I am not so thrilled about Kurt anymore. Grrrrrr
Then we have rabbits, especially baby rabbits this time of year. They are very shy but will make sure Bailey gets a little exercise.... LOL. It cracks me up every time I see chubby-dog race after a rabbit right into the bushes. About 2 seconds later the rabbit returns out on the grass nibbling away like nothing happened, while the dog still loudly crashes around in bushes.
We see squirrels, fireflies, birds, and occasionally there is skunk smell in the air. And that’s about it.
Where Bailey just would not move away from our bench. He kept sniffing and even went inside to get me to help him. There were dirty paw prints on the cushions and a very stripped kale plant above the dirty footprints. Hmmmmm. I removed the cushions and looked under the bench. Didn’t see anything. Then I slowly moved the bench out and heard a loud squeak. Turns out a ground hog was stuck. Here’s his snout:
He somehow managed to fall down behind the back. And as soon as I got the bench pulled out he managed to slide into a small hole. A surprisingly small hole considering the actual size of the animal (large cat size). And there he was. Wouldn’t come out. And Bailey guarded the patio like a wolf. A few hours later we finally managed to get the animal to leave. And despite their somewhat not-so-athletic appearance, groundhogs run exceptionally fast! I have had enough wildlife for a bit now!
