Help Help H E L P!


This morning after I had let the dogs out and let the chickens out and everything was going smoothly. I was reading the paper, watching the news, drinking coffee; you know, the relaxation stuff. I looked out the window and saw the horses coming into the pasture. Okay. So every now and then I glance up and look out the window. I noticed Poppet kept looking toward the house. I thought maybe something was out there after my chickens, so I go out the back door and I hear Sissy's little squeaky voice.
I had set a trap last night to catch a opossum, if any was out there. I bait the trap with cat food. Poor little Sissy is always hungry. So, see what happens. After I found her, I wouldn't let her out

because I wanted to go back and get my camera. Needless to say, she didn't think that was a very good idea. After I opened the cage, she immediately backed out.

She is just pacing around, wagging her tail, barking and panting. I am sure she was going "whew!"




After we get back in the house, she runs and gets in the little bed, still panting. "That was really close"

With her dog memory she'll probably go after the cat food again first chance.
