Dogs vs. Wild

Ever since we moved to Oregon the dogs have been introduced to the most amazing array of animal life. First, it was the squirrels. The first year we lived here, Lily couldn't get enough of the squirrels. She eventually caught and killed one, than lost interest. When we moved into the new house, she discovered the deer. She knows where they are and barks at them even when we can't see them. Most recently, she discovered moles. We have one particular mole that is tearing up our front yard that she hunts on a regular basis. She even caught him about a month ago, but Matt was able to save him before she ended his little life. Trudy, for the first time, discovered her very own animal friend, the opossum you see pictured below. The opossum was little and frightened and Trudy didn't harm her, but Trudy made sure we (and the entire neighborhood) knew that something was invading her yard. Pretty good for a deaf and blind dog!
