We had a fun weekend! Two sleeps ago we went to a place even mommy and daddy have nevfur been to befure! Mommy called it a flea market. WHAT????!! Why would anyone want to buy fleas??! Furtunately, we nevfur found the flea stall, but there was a lot of Stuff there mommy and daddy had fun looking at. There were also lots of other doggies, and lots of hoomans who like doggies! So Hershey and I had a great time, too.
Yesfurday we just chilled and watched the Olympics, then we went to bed.
But then, way befure the sun was ready to come up, Hershey and I sniffed intruders!! BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK! Daddy kept saying HUSH! Daddy kept telling us what time it was. (4 a.m., like we cared!) NO!! We have intruders!! BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!
Finally mommy came downstairs and went where we told her, to the furnace vent. Our furnace sits sort of in the middle of the house, in a closet with a door on the kitchen side and a vent in the living room. And inside that closet, mommy figured there must be a raccoon! They have come in befure, Hershey says, through an outside vent that was supposed to have been fixed.
When it was time fur mommy and daddy to leave fur the office, the raccoon was still in there! I TOLD them so!! But they left anyway.
Then mommy came home, and called somebody, and FINALLY he came. He helped mommy move things out of the way and opened the furnace door and he showed mommy--not one, but TWO raccoons sitting there behind a grate looking scared. He said he was going to do this, and he said then he would do that, and when it gets dark and quiet tonight they should pack up and leave. I hope so!! Hershey has lost interest, but mommy can hear them wiggling around in there, right behind her chair! And I can smell them!! BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!
I would have barked at those raccoons too.
WHOA! I would have been like crazy too!
I went to the San Jose Flea Market over the weekend. Normally, they don't allow doggies but I gotta go because they was havin' a dock divin' event:o) I didn't see any fleas either:o/
Good job barkin' at the George Cooneys! Sumpup hadta let them know they was not welcome to move in!
Raccoon in your house! Bark that durn thing outta there!
What if they don't leave? You better call that guy on the TV. His show is Call Of The Wildman. He'll get them outta your place!
And no, we don't watch that show. We aren't That redneck.
Woof, everyfur! Pepper, this one was on Treasure Island. They do it once a month and always let doggies in!
Zoe, mommy's not sure how she'll know if the raccoons are gone. The man was pretty confident, and they're gonna seal up the vent tomorrow! (We don't know that Wildman show!)
WOW! I would have barked my silly head off at them racoon's! We only get them outside BOL!
BOL, Pookah! I guess they like our houses out here!
Poor scared babies !!
The Mum Raccy has just started to bring her babies . We have such awful drought.. here I put water and a little food.. not enough food to make them dependant.. just enough to help. The water... bless them.. all they need. The other night 2 were just sitting in one of the birdbaths.. bliss on their faces !
They did look scared, mommy said. But around here they have plenty of food and water without breaking and entering, and it isn't even hot!
Do you bark at your raccoons, Flicka?
Flicka you's Mom is just like mine! Mommy is a softy when it comes to furry critters.
Yup, raccoons sure are cute but GET THOSE DANG RACCOONS OUT OF THERE! They carry diseases that they can transmit to humans.
I can think of more humans I would rather "lose" than the raccoons. The sooner we remember we are on their land the better.
Ours are people shy... we are very rural.. and I have NO problem with them....
Winkie.. the Boys do bark !
BOL, Flicka!! I think I'd rather keep my pawrents! This was nevfur raccoon land. It used to be a beach!
I would bark...and then do my terrier thing and try to dig them out! That would be helpfur, right??! BOL!@
whoa, two racoons, I sure hope that they leave soon
I would still be barking. As long as they are in my house they would get barked at by both Duncan and me. We have seen a couple of them but only outside and generally only on trash day. We live near a river and a creek so there is plenty of water but Mum has a soft spot too. She fills our outside water bowl every evening when she gets home and over night and during the day when we are inside the birds stop by for drinks. I don't mind the birds so much. I've caught a couple so they leave our stuff alone when we are out.
OMD!! Winkie an' Hershey, yu hab da PAWSUMEST abbenchurs an' sumtimes yu du nod eben need tu weave yur howse :D KEWL!!
Freckles, I must have some terrier in me, because I tried to dig through the furnace vent to get at those critters! Mommy finally had to block it off from me!
They have packed up and moved out, just like the man said they would. And their entry vent has been sealed up again. No more coonies in MY house!! AAARRROOOOooooOOOOO!!
Growlmy says good riddance, BOL! But...I say now the fun is all gone!
So what happened to the coons??
Oops...never mind...I see they moved on. You did good!
BOL Sunny!! They still come sniffing around on our front porch, and Hershey and I BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK!BARK! to run them off! We always check the furnace closet, too, but so far they haven't got in!
