He took a shovel and launched it off our back deck and then went down and launched it again into the St. Clair River. I don't know if they can swim or not but the current is so fast he was carried far away from us.

Last summer our dog finally caught a possum that had been taunting her from the back fence. We were sure that one was dead b/c its guts were hanging out. It was also in full rigor. I made my brother take care of that one (held the trash bag for him to shovel it into). ewwww I'm just so glad neither dog was hurt!

nasty things.
