The Big Midnight Bark Fest Over WHAT?!

Last night, just after the lady fell asleep, I decided I needed to go outside and do some business. Out the dog door I went, onto the grass, when I saw something! So I did what any self respecting dog does, I started Barking, A LOT and really LOUD!
Look who came out to bark with me, Reilly man!
I barked and scratched at the fence, while Reilly kept a safe distance away from THE THING!
After a few minutes of barking, out came the lady, PJs, robe and a really mad look on her face, (sorry, no photos of that, but let me tell you, she looked scary!)

Uh Oh, I think I'm in trouble for I went to the corner to show her,
It's not a squirrel, it's not a frog (which I have been known to bark at late at night) it's...

.... one of these ugly things! What is it, WHAT IS IT?! And why won't it go away when I bark!? Look at that face, the lady tried to scare it away and she finally had to wave a towel at it, it wasn't afraid at all. Later she told me it was an opossum. Whatever, the da*& thing needs to stay out of my backyard and off my fence.

k here: guess this means the dog door will have to get shut at night, those late night bark fests really ruin a good nights sleep!

Mom thinks possums are ugly! We've never seen one face to face and I guess we hope we never do! You guys are great watch dogs!

Love ya lots,

Yes, I can imagine your lady's face!
I've never seen a possum in my life but sure I'd bark at him too!
Enjoy your weekend

Another good reason to shut the dog door at night... even if little doggies don't go out of the door, little opossum creatures can come in through that door too! Ewwww!

Goober love,
