We finally got the possum that has been hanging out here! It started about 2 weeks ago, it was about 9 pm and Shelby was going crazy in the house~barking, running around. So I let her out and then she ran out and started barking~I knew she had something. So I grabbed my pistol and flashlight and out the door I went. I came around the side of the house and saw she had cornered something, I flashed over and it was a possum, it was making a hissing type sound. That is the first time I've every heard one. So I kept trying to call her back so I could shoot it. But every time I moved, she moved in between me and the possum, she was protecting me. Finally she ran it off. Well for a couple of days nothing, then she started getting really irritated and getting into our bathtub. Crazy dog, but I guess it was getting under the house and she could smell it in there! We came home tonight and I fed the cat in the garage and was going back to let him in since it is so cold. I flipped on the garage light and opened the door, only to find a possum looking at me! Holy cow, he was sitting there eating the cat food! I got him cornered in the back of the garage and yelled for hubby to come with a gun! Any who, we finally won and got the little stinker! Maybe my dog will stay out of the bathtub now! Of course Savannah had to run out and be in the picture! Hubby said you can take a picture, just don't get him in it! LOL!
