They Aren't Just Roadkill

Hello everydog!

We saw something new and exciting. Mom says, until living out here, she has never seen one of these alive! Now she has seen three ... or maybe the same one three times.

In case you don't recognize it, it is an armadillo.

Mom wouldn't let us get outside of the fence to visit with him. She is such a kill-joy.

Woo! I remember those guys from my days back in Texas! They're like Possum Knights, with armor on! Ha woooo!
PS: Mom says your mom is smart not to let you visit with him. What's up with moms?

Hi Doxies
We want to check him out and jump on his back to see how tough he really is.
When mom went to Dallas 2 years ago she bought an armadillo fridge magnet.
Love Ruby & Penny

Wow, I have never seen one of those. Are you sure it wasn't a bunny with armor on to protect them from coyotes or certain dachsies?? Are those things mean?

licks and sniffs, Sasha

We don't have those in our yard! Mom says they're really funny looking! Maybe next time your mom will let you out to say hi to him!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hey!! Mommy says she bets that's the same one they saw the last time we was there. I hope all the critters stay around so I can get some good barking in. 1 1/2 to go any counting. My has been a little sad today. Her Mommy died 23 years ago today.

See ya soon....Mona
