Not-so-friendly visitor


My dog hates storms, so we typically put her in the garage when we know one is coming. Well, of course we raise the door about a foot to keep it well ventilated. I ran out to my car and stumbled upon this visitor that decided to also seek sheltor in the comforts of a garage. Guess the hole that he dug (that I blamed on the poor dog) was flooding. Now, the dog was scared of the armadillo, so she was hiding in the storage room in the garage! R had a tough time getting that little thing out of the garage. They are similar to a cat in that they make a hissing sound and jump much higher than I would have imagined when "shooed" with a broom. Sorry, fella, but there's only room for one pet around here and you had to go.

Oh my! The turtle we found in our backyard was wildlife enough for me...I can't imagine stumbling onto that THING! Ugh...who knew we had those in Tennessee?

I can imagine what I would have done and it would not have involved a broom!!!!

Oh my goodness! Did you zoom in on that thing because it is HUGE! I am so glad it was not under my garage, I am so not the wildlife person!

Yes, the thing was much larger than I would have imagined and caused a rather large mess in my flower beds!
