Opossum In The Pool

Opossum’s LOVE our house! Did you catch my post about the opossum that died in our kitchen wall?


The opossum’s like to eat dog food, so we bring Dakota’s dog food in at night, but sometimes they beat me to the back door to eat it before I can bring it in.  This weekend the dog was having a fit to get outside.  I let her out and then went out to check on her.  She had chased the opossum into the pool and he was sitting on the top step.

    1. Dakota is lucky that the opossum jumped in the pool and didn’t come after her! She has also chased 2 raccoons in the pool too.
