Who says my dog can’t hunt??


Okay, technically, Zoe didn’t actually hunt the possum, as much as scare it up a tree, on the other side of the fence.


(Edited later Monday morning to add…)

I posted the above picture early this morning.  While I was sitting here having my morning joe and admiring my talent as a blogger, I looked out the window and saw this:


I immediately looked around for my trusty hounds and found this:

Seriously, my dogs can’t hunt.


  1. Dawn,

    I got the shudders from that one! I hate those possums. They are vile creatures. They'll wander up from the woods into my front yard. One morning, when letting the dog out while it was still dark, the hedges were trembling and a possum came darting out, headed right towards us. I screamed and I don't know who ran faster to get into the house, me or the dog. Stupid dog. Laughed out loud at your snoozers. That's exactly how it would go down in my house.

  2. Posey! You are my Posey! You are my heart's bouquet! Dawn, do you think that song was written about that possum?? LOLOL You did, of course, name her Posey?!!

  3. Those animals are butt ugly. I saw one in the Walmart parking lot and it took all my belief in God's love for his creatures for me not to run him over. At least your dog chased him off once. Sort of.

  4. I think your dogs are playing possum.

  5. It's not that she CAN'T hunt, it's that she CHOOSES not to hunt. It's beneath her, and plus she's very, very busy snuggling in the chair. I get that.

  6. She's like "Dude. Been there, done that."

  7. But they're cute! And they lie there looking cute! And really, isn't that their real job? :) Possums are ugly. I don't know if we have them around here. I've never seen one, but I'd probably scream if I did.

  8. Ah yes, dogs like to sleep when you really need them. I like the one cuddled up in front of the fireplace. That's where I would be!

    My favorite is Lona tends to sleep quite deeply so if my sister comes over Lona won't wake up until she's already in the house. Nice guard dog.

  9. Find a shovel and bury that thing quick!


I would love to hear what you have to say!
