Laughs from the land of pet lovers

DH sent this, and it's too funny not to share. It's good to see he working so hard these last few days before he retires!

Subject: Visiting Dog!!!

An older, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard.* I could tell from his collar
and well-fed belly that he had a home and was well taken care of.* He calmly
came over to me, I gave him a few pats on his head; he then followed me into my
house, slowly walked down the hall, curled up in the corner and fell asleep.


An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out..

The next day he was back, greeted me in my yard, walked inside and resumed his
spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour.* This continued off and on
for several weeks.


Curious I pinned a note to his collar: 'I would like to find out who the owner
of this wonderful sweet dog is and ask if you are aware that almost every
afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap.'

The next day he arrived for his nap, with a different note pinned to his collar:
'He lives in a home with 6 children, 2 under the age of 3 He's trying to catch
up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?'

My big news is, I had 5 baby opossums delivered right to my door !!!. They were from the Humane Society Wildlife Rescue

I only saw the little guys on the first night. They never used their "bed" that came with them. :psm1: :psm1:

Was instructed to feed them for 3 days and stop (ya...right )

SO.. this winter 3 of them showed up again, plus a new huge opossum !!! The littlest one is so cute !

A couple of the smaller ones come every week, not every day. :posm: :psm1: :psm1: :psm1: :psm2: :psm3: :psm4: :psm4:

Awwwww Voice! That sounds so cute! I am good with opossums, but I've never seen babies. Usually it's the adults and they seem to be very skittish.

I worry about them because of the drought in CA, and it's driving predators to neighborhoods where possums used to come.

I hope you continue to see them. :psm1:
