Foxy

This must be the year of the Fox.  In the past week we observed two foxes.  The fox population must be on the rise.  Luckily I had my camera ready.

Fox May 6

This one looked healthy..well more healthy than the one with the bum leg.  The pups if they have any should be out and about soon.  A Red Fox can have between five and ten pups.

Chance waited to bark until I said “Okay, I have the photo.”  What a good boy he is when we are out and about! :)

  7. You did good with that shot and Chance did BETTER waiting to bark at him. That is super hard for such a protective boy.

  8. We had fox kits here last year. Thanks for the info about when they come out. We'll have to watch for them.
    I am so glad that you had your camera and that Chance was patient!

  9. Chance is one beautifully trained dog, so nice to hear about him....maybe he could come over for a visit and teach our neighbours dog a few tricks.

    I can't remember ever getting to see a fox, other then in photos.

  10. There are certain things that border collies just won't do unless you say it is ok to do. They do like to pleas. They are really such good dogs.

  13. That was a great shot! Usually as soon as they see movement they are gone so fast!

  14. What a beautiful animal... our son in Colorado said there was one in their yard the other day -- I hope he got a picture; meanwhile thanks for yours. I don't think there are any foxes in Florida , at least I haven't heard about them. And surely not in the RV Park where we live when we're here ;>)

  15. Wow!!! I was impressed with Chance before but now I really am. Hey, ya think if I sent ya my wildly spastic Pepper Nipper she'd be as obedient when she returned? Heeeheehehe!!!

    That's one great shot of Mr. Fox!

    God bless and have a splendid day my friend! :o)

  17. What a good boy that Chance is!!! We don't have many red fox at all, I've seen one in the last few years. We have plenty of black bear though. I really don't want to get a picture of one!!!

  20. I have yet to see a fox in the wild. One of my birding buddies saw two last week -- and I've lived here 40 plus years and never seen one.

    Nice shot there!

  21. We have several kits here this year. They should have a feast since the DOW has now planted wild turkeys, chuckers and quail in our area.

  22. Aren't they gorgeous? We have them here too and one night there was one on my front porch. There's something that has made a bed in some weeds in the middle of my "landscaping project". It's quite a big bed and they're gone in the morning. I think that might be a deer though. I have to close the windows at night else my "girls" would be barking all night long with all the critters around here.
