A few weeks ago one night we heard Joni making a terrible racket, barking. When Steven went out to investigate he found that she had discovered these babies who were huddled by the door to his workshop. Once Joni was safely in the house we both went outside with our cameras to see if they were still there. Then we took turns holding the flashlight while the other took photos of the cute little things. Then we went to bed hoping that the mother would have come to rescue them by the morning.

The next day I saw the two of them wandering around, but after that they were nowhere to be seen, so I assume that they went off somewhere where they weren’t likely to run into an excited border collie. This is the one I took of them. (Steven posted his photo at the time. You can see his hereΒ )

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

  1. They came into the kitchen a couple of times from a former owner's dog door that we had to seal off, then one came right into the living room through a broken back screen door, and ate a bunch of the snacks Linda was setting up for a golf tournament. He ate the nuts and M&Ms out of the trail mix and left the raisins.
