Friends....


News from Zone 3....

Mr. and Mrs. Grey Fox stopped by to visit....
AND much to our surprise -- Skunkae'
Had a baby! 
 Isn't she cute? 
I don't know her name yet. 

And of course the Skunk Whisperer, Mike, was SO excited! 
I don't know what it is about skunks -- but he sure likes them!

Later -- Remington -- happy for all of my friends! -- out!

Zone 3 aka Wild Kingdom is thriving under you watchful eye. The purple and white petunias look very pretty next to your lovely black coat.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Wow! You need to install a traffic signal. :)

Erin @ The Impatient Gardener said...

Wow ... great wildlife in your back yard, Remington! Your mom is quick with the camera to catch those pictures too. And yeah ... that baby skunk is pretty cute!

Gus said...

Wow...you are a nature preserve all by yourself! Just stay away from the skunks...because they may not understand Newfies, and you could find yourself suddenly in great need of tomato juice.

Gloria said...

Wow, zone 3 sure is hopping thes days huh? Billy wants you to know; stay away from those cute little skunks! As a pup he got to close to one and PHEWIE! Thank goodness he was little and easy to clean up! Now you on the other hand, would need a LOT of tomatoe juice to take that smell away!

Frankie Furter said...

Remington Zone 3 has become the ultimate Wildlife summer destination. Love the pics.

Heather and Ellie said...

Don't get too friendly with Skunkae, Remington! It would be pretty hard to get her well known smell out of your thick coat.

The fox are adorable! Looks like they like the bird seed?

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Remington, Zone 3 is really great to watch from inside the house!! Wonder what's going to come through their next! It is exciting!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Stella said...

Nice to see all this pretty wildlifes out in your yard, but, Rem, I really hope you don't decide to chase them! Just observe from inside, thats what you want to do!

Kisses,

Interesting visitors! Stay away from those black and white ones though.

Ms. ~K said...

All Creatures Great and Small in Zone 3, huh, Rem?

Jacqueline said...

Wow, Rem, you guys get some awesome visitors in your yard, sweetie...Mr. and Mrs. Grey Fox are beautiful and congratulations to Skunkae', her baby is adorable!...We've always heard skunks make wonderful indoor pets if you have their stink gland removed; they are supposed to be very sweet and loyal, like lap cats!...Happy day lovely friends...kisses...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Nubbin' Tails said...

You get all kinds of interesting visitors. All we get here are some birds and the occasional squirrel. :-(

Wags!

Mr. Nubbin'

Ginny said...

Wow, Rem! How is it that you get such wildlife in your yard? You must live in the country or near the woods. Too cool!! I hope you don't like skunks too well, Rem, or you could get a stinky surprise! But such a cute mama and baby picture!

MISTAYA said...

Nice visitors to your yard!! I really like the fox but I am not sure about those skunk things. M.O.M. tells me I have smelled their scent before but just didn't know where is was coming from. Hugs and wags, Mistaya

Junior and Orion said...

Wow! With visitors like that you better keep your feline siblings inside!

We like hte fox visitors, but we could do without the skunks...unless they have their stinkies removed.

The Army of Four said...

Hi Rem! We're trying to get caught up - and wow, you've been busy!!! A cool trip with Billy, crashing after a crazy weekend, and now these cool new friends!!! How exciting!
Those foxes are so gorgeous and Storm wants to adopt the little skunkling!!!

Maggie and Mitch said...

You sure get lots of fun wildlife in your yard, Remington!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

I would NOT recommend trying to discover if the baby is a he or a she! The foxes are a handsome couple. Your Zone 3 is such a safe sanctuary for these amazing creatures...you should be proud that these shy ones come so close.

What nice floof!

You have such a cool home! Zone 3 is busy these days!!! We would probably get in trouble with that skunk...he is kinda cute!! xoxoxo Chloe and LadyBug

Ina in Alaska said...

Wonderful pictures! A baby skunk! SO CUTE!! Love Mr. and Mrs. Fox, very elegant. I have never seen a fox in my yard or a skunk....we just get those moose (bears too.... ) today a young bear broke into a house near my friend's house and raided the trash compactor. There were pork chops thawing on the kitchen counter but the bear ignored the chops and ripped apart the trash compactor. The police arrived and chased the bear away. Thankfully they did not shoot it.

How incredible to see wildlife like that so close, I envy you so much!
