We have been having some drama around here lately. And it's all because of the family that has moved in. The best that I can tell, it's just a single female and her baby. But they are driving us (me and my dogs) insane!
Then there's Ralphie. At first I was afraid he might have a heart attack from running back and forth, back and forth, back and forth following those two from tree limb to house to limb. He was getting so hysterical that he accidentally jumped up into the tree.
Then the other day I heard this unusually sound and ran out to the backyard and there was Ralphie with the baby in his mouth! I screamed so loud that I shocked myself. I was screaming " Drop it! Drop it! STOP! STOP! NO! NO!" and running after Ralphie with the pooper scooper. As all this was happening I noticed that Momma had run down the tree trunk ready to get Ralphie. He finally dropped the baby and the poor thing was was just lying there. I picked up Ralphie and looked up as I carried him into the house. Momma just sat on the limb, giving us the death stare. We went inside and I came back out to see what could be done but the baby had gotten up and ran up the bush and onto the fence.
I had the day off today and I had so much to do. So I left Raphie and Jimmy at the kennel overnight so that I could get some of my work done without a bloodbath.
So I have no idea what to do now. I guess I'll hope the baby learns and grows fast and they eventually move on to another home.
