Good morning everybody!:)<quoted text>
Excellent set up! My fence isn't that high, so that's why I asked.
My dogs got hold of an opossum last summer that kept sneaking in under the gate. I was SURE it was dead after all the blood, fur and spit stopped flying that night... But that critter had apparently done what they do best, and passed out. Dang, if that thing didn't wander off though in the time it took me I bring the dogs inside and clean the blood off of them to make sure it wasn't THEIRS. When I went back out to check on it, hoping I wouldn't have to "finish" the job and put it out of it's misery, it was gone like it'd never been there...
I didn't see it again for quite a few days. But sure enough, it returned. Perhaps they gave it brain damage and it had short term memory loss after that attack? ROFLMBO!! I'll never know. It eventually stopped coming to visit as well.
That old possum didn't pass out. He pulled one over on you by "playing possum" - acting dead. lol My dog just irritates the heck out of them until they sull up and play dead then he slobbers all over them! LOL I went out one night to see what all the barking was about. While strolling along I nearly sttepped on one of those little boogers laying on his side all pitiful looking. I thought he was dead until I poked at him a little bit and he finally moved. Did you get a look at those teeth?!? lol
