I was driving home from the grocery store yesterday when I saw the weirdest lookin animal I've ever seen in the middle of the street. From where I was at, it looked like a mix between a small dog and a raccoon with an extremely long fuzzy tail.
"What the?" I said out loud to myself, is that possible?
I'm never letting my dog outside again, a cross between a raccoon and a Great Dane could be deadly!
Well, as I got closer I realized it wasn't just one animal, it was twelve! They were just waddling down the middle of the road like they owned the place.
I drove home as fast as I could and threw the groceries inside the house, losing a 1/2 gallon of milk in the process, so that I could get some pictures of this cute little family.
We don't live near any water so I'm not sure where these little guys came from or where they were going! Mama duck didn't like me following them around at first, but at least I was able to get them off the road. Look at them trying to get up the curb! I was dying, they were so cute!
"Mama wait for me!" That's what they were saying in Chick language. Didn't know I was fluent in Chickish did you? That's why I get along so well with the Three Bay B Chicks.
We understand eachother.
After we enjoyed tea, cookies, and great conversation, I figured it was time to let them go on their way. They had a long way to go but I have confidence in that Mama that she will get her chicks to safety.
I named her Francesca.
