Looking after mom

For the last few weeks I have been looking after mom as my daddy is away on a business trip. I hope he gets back soon so he can play with me in the snow.

Today mom took me down to the river. I love sniffing all over down there. Today I didn't want to do much sniffing at all. I stopped, sniffed, growled and then turned to go back up the riverbank. Mom had to look for a while, but she finally spotted what I was growling about.

She finally saw the fisher that was watching us. Fishers are not very nice creatures. They are the only thing that will actively seek out and eat porcupines and then they have no problem passing those quills! That is one creature you do not want to mess with.

We came back to our yard and mom chased me around in the snow.

Good job Buddy. You are takin over the guardin, like your fursis Angel Abby did.

How big are fishers, Buddy? Big as a raccoon or what would you compare it to? We've only seen them on TV.

By the looks of your photos you sure do have a lot of snow.

Good job, Buddy. You are very protective and very smart.

The fisher was about the size of a large cat. It was just sitting behind some fallen down trees watching. They are nasty critters!

I bet you miss your Daddy but it's a good thing you are there to keep Momma company or she would be lonely!
I think your Angel fursis handpicked you out! She use to protect your Mom the same way you did. She would stop her from walking on and your Mom finally learned to listen to see, Abby has your Mom all good and trained!BOL
Keep up the great work and wow...that snow looks like so much fun!
Woof, Molly
