Hot Possums

South Australia is enduring another heat wave, it was 40 deg. this morning and these possums aren’t happy. I’ve misted them with the hose in the hope they’ll survive but one died a couple of weeks ago even though I’d sprayed it until it moved out of range.

 

Fergus -8 months

He certainly doesn’t look like a puppy anymore! When we’d be out walking our previous Westie crosses people would ask how old they were imagining that they were pups and they were always shocked to hear that they were actually old ladies. The opposite is the case now, people are stunned to hear that Fergus is only 8 months old.

Although I didn’t want to get him clipped, hoping that grooming him every night would be enough to keep his coat looking reasonable I’ve had to give in so he’s just had his first haircut.
