|April 7th: s/he managed to tip the barrel a bit and almost chewed through a brand new bungee but Chicken Mama won this day!|
|April 8th: Next morning, Raccoon 1 / Chicken Mama 0.|
|April 10th: Raccoon 0 / Chicken Mama 1. You can't see it, but I'd added a 2nd bungee . . . which was good since s/he finally managed the chew the original one off (you can see it laying on the deck).|
Now, you remember me telling you about the dogs wanting to go out and then bark, bark, barking for the past few nights, right? Well, Saturday night was another night that I couldn't fall asleep, and I listened to the raccoon basically pick the sunflower seed can up off the ground and then bash it back down about 3 times. A look-see in the AM revealed that s/he finally got frustrated and pushed the grill away from the railing about 18", too. But, here's the kicker: do you think the dogs woke up ONCE during all that noise???? 'Course not.
That said, I can't poo-poo my (cough, cough, snicker) "guard dogs" too much because NONE of us woke up last night when THIS happened:
|Sigh . . . . The battle continues.|
