When Mom took us outside this morning, there was a dead opossum in the road in front of our house. It was not the same young opossum that was in our yard a couple weeks ago. It was a big ol' opossum with a bloody snout and sharp teeth and a long, naked tail. Wow! Mom wouldn't let us go near it, but we could smell it and see it and Wow!
Mom went back inside after our walk and called up someone in the city directory and asked if they would come over and get this dead opossum. The lady on the phone said they would send someone over, but it might take up to 24 hours because for our entire city of hundreds of thousands of people (not including dogs), there is only ONE person who does this job.
I want that job. I asked Mom if I could apply, but she said the position was already filled and besides, I don't know how to drive, nor would any respecting DOT office give me a license. I told her to try the DOG office instead. She is not listening to me.
I guess you will have to read Lexie's diary if you want to hear the "end" of this "tail."
