Very early (about 2:00 a.m.) Tuesday morning our puppy was barking and barking and barking and....She just kept on barking. William got out of bed to check on her. She was looking out the back door so he opens the back door to see what kind of varmint was causing so much aggravation to the puppy.
When he came back to bed he said, "You'd never believe what was out by our garbage can." I guessed a deer. He said "No. A skunk!" I asked if he shot it and he said "NAH!! That thing would have sprayed everything." Then he said, "I backed into the house as quietly and as quickly as I could."
Now my William is over six feet tall, a rather large man and has size thirteen feet....The mental picture of him backing quietly and quickly brings a giggle every time I think about it. Even at two o'clock in the morning.
The little Stinker is still wondering around some where in our area. I just hope neither of us walk up on it while it is out strolling.
