I was in the yard on the leash doing my groundhog patrol. Mom and I didn't spot any unusual activity so I became leash-free. I was humped up in the corner of the yard doing my business facing THE OTHER WAY when mom noticed a woodchuck racing for the escape route. I didn't see him but mom sure did and she also heard a funny whistle noise. They call groundhogs whistle pigs because of the noise they make. They make this noise when they feel scared or threatened.
Later this same day, I was upstairs checking out my bedroom window~
For now - mom has decided to leash me when we head outside and do our patrol duty. The woodchucks do run if they see danger coming. They're not looking for trouble and we sure don't want any so once mom knows that it's safe - I can be off leash to sniff and play.
Love ya lots♥
