The dog and I were out for our evening walk. A fox came by. Startled at seeing the dog and me, the fox stopped and laid down about 25 feet (30 feet) from where we were walking. I stopped too. DeO'jie had no clue for 3-4 minutes (2 minutes). I flashed a light on the fox. It stayed. The hound finally noticed. A short chase ensued, 8 foot (eight foot plus the length of my arm).
That was when I realized that it was a fox, not the cat that I had thought it was all along. No pictures. Who takes pictures of cats in the dark? Here's a picture of a metal guitar pick instead.
