Walking Daddy part 2


We turned around to head back home and looks what was in the middle of the road, the sun came up right over the trees and in our eyes.... Mama said I can't see! this is blinding me, We waited to long. Tomorrow we leave earlier, I can't walk like this. There could be an elephant in the road and we would not know it.
There might have been more, but you get what I heard. What I want to know is how did she get these photos if she could not see. That's a mystery to ME.


Can you see how well I walk my Daddy! he walks great, doesn't he?  Yesterday on our walk, we got to the turnaround spot and there was a LOUD noise, I started pulling and ACTING UP, even daddy with the hearing aid, said what is that noise. Mama with the ULTRA hearing said it's over there.
There were 4 Big Green Trans Bins and one of them the lid was popping up and THUMP! Pop up and THUMP!
Mama said get him out of here, there is something trapped in the trash bin. Ha Ha On Mama! Get him out of here.
I wanted to see that critter, I laid my big 75 pound self down and refused to move.

Since I was wearing my brand new harness, that you have not seen yet, Daddy grabbed the handle of the harness and yanked me up, mama backed down the street holding treats, each time I got one I moved 6 feet, a block away I stopped acting up.  Mama was not happy when she said Come and I did not! What did she expect? I wanted to see what was in the can.

Mama said HE knows what's in there because of his nose.

The humans shoved me in our house, and ran out the door, I heard the car start up and they were gone. I was heart broken.

When they came home, I heard them talking all day about their adventure. Daddy took an ax handle with him, they drove back and daddy used the handle to open the lid. Nothing happened!

Daddy peered into the bin and there was a half grown Raccoon inside. he was to small to climb out. Daddy carefully tipped the bin over and out ran a terrified Raccoon and he never even looked at daddy or said Thank  you!



Below the only photo mama got... you can tell how far away she was...

Hello, BB

What a story and exciting walk. I would not get close to a raccoon.
I am glad it was freed from the trash can. Have a happy day!

BOL BOL BOL BB you have Dad well trained. I agree with Momma about the sun blinding; BUT should she see an elephant in the road I hope she gets a photo.
Great Escape story

Oooh, that rising sun can be wicked. While commuting to my part-time job last Fall, I had a couple near-death experiences … nothing like travelling 60-some mph in rush-hour and traffic and not being able to see. Shortly before I quit, once off the freeway I was trembling so badly, I had to pull into a public parking lot and compose myself.

I love Bob's tender heart! Run, Forrest-oon, run!

What an adventure. Our Lady also would have been that far away.

Mama, ou could write a book called The Big Adventures! I can just see him laying down and refusing to move.

Brave Daddy. So happy he helped the raccoon. SHE had one as a pet when young and has a soft spot for them. (Completely understand wanting to get whatever was in there--and protecting your family.)

PS. SHE understands about Daddy's knees completely!!

What a saga and what a rescue.
Every day is an adventure for BB and his Mommy and Daddy.

Ginny Hartzler said...

What an adventure, and a cute life saved from long suffering. B.B., don't you know that Mama is an expert at snapping blind?

Inger said...

BB, your mom and daddy had a big adventure and did a very good deed. I think they are very brave, don't you?

DeniseinVA said...

To the rescue! I bet that raccoon had a tale to tell his mommy and daddy 😊.

Susan Kane said...

If raccoons have any internal dialogue, I wonder what those words would be?

We're sorry you didn't get to be in on the adventure, BB. You'd a caught that little raccoon! XOX Xena and Lucy

Ann said...

How did your mama get those photos when she couldn't see? It's because she is a great photographer with lots of practice :)
That was a pretty exciting adventure even if they didn't let you see the ending of it. I bet that raccoon was happy to be out of that garbage can.
