Skunks are opportunistic eaters with a varied diet. They are nocturnal foragers who eat fruit and plants, insects, larvae, worms, eggs, reptiles, small mammals, and even fish

Which explains why one large and two small such were putz-ing about the newly mown lawns last night. But doesn’t totally explains why, well after sun rise, one small little fellow emerged from beneath the tractor and staggered his half drunken walk across the lot and disappeared into the near neighbors junk pile.

Nor, I’ll point out, why dog wanted some of that skunkly motivated steak.

A very good case for being happy dogs can’t talk and understand – can one feature enplaning skunks to a dog. If I really wanted to explain to him I’d just turn him loose when he carries on about them.

Now there’s an idea.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
