A stinky surprise for a Connecticut family! Yikes!

This morning I was awakened by my 11 year old son shortly after daybreak.  He is a ramboctous boy that doesn’t sleep in past 7 a.m. very often.  Though it was way earlier than his normal summer schedule he is practicing getting up for 6th grade which begins next week.  When he ran into my room, I thought something was wrong.  Turns out he’d just gone to let our dog back inside from his daily pre-dawm excursion.

Immediately, Jack was yelling, Mom get up and look.  Trying to gather my bearings I finally put it all together.  There was a skunk in the backyard.  Not exactly sure what my son wanted me to do about it at 6:09 a.m. but he definitely wanted me to see the skunk.  Thankfully, the skunk didn’t get either of our dogs and ambled clumsly out of the yard.  Hopefully he or she was only passing through!
