>> Monday, April 25, 2011 – Max
For the past few weeks, we've been hearing something chewing on our floor boards in the living room. We could see where something had crawled into a crack in the foundation. Whenever I would hear the chewing and it was LOUD, I would walk over the spot and stomp on the floorboards. Of course, praying that I wouldn't fall through since we weren't sure how much he had chewed off.
One day, Jon saw the little booger run out from under the house. So, he got a live trap to see if he could catch a groundhog. And it worked! Just this morning my dog was freaking out while I was trying to sleep. I'm ashamed to say I yelled at the poor dog since he was interrupting my sleep. He was just trying to tell us what we caught!
Wild animals are a change for me in my life. I grew up in a small rural town, but I never had to deal with wild animals. Max was playing hide and seek with a raccoon in the machine shed one day and then had him cornered up a tree the next day. Now, I am not a fan of just shooting animals. It just makes my heart hurt to think about shooting either a raccoon or a groundhog. I know that seems silly since I am not a vegetarian, but it's the truth. So, I made Jon promise me he would take him a couple miles away and let him go. Now we'll shall see if my opinions change if the little booger comes back...
