Roxy and the Fox
Friday night at 2:30am Roxy began whining to go out. This is a fairly rare thing, so I knew she was having a potty emergency. I threw on a robe, slipped on Al’s shoes, and took her to the grassy spot behind the RV. Remember, we are parked at Teton Village in the back parking lot. I was staring at the milky way, looking for meteors, and just waiting for her to be done. I heard a little sound behind me and turned to see Roxy chasing a fox in the parking lot. Her hackles were up, and she was in full pursuit.
This little girl has always thought she was a rottweiler or something.
Just then the fox stopped, turned and looked at her, and realized she could be dinner. I whisper yelled, and they both turned to look at me. The fox looked at me, then back at her. I got close enough to pick up Roxy and the fox just stood there looking at me. He then went and sat under one of the lights, and watched me for a while. I have to say, he was beautiful. He then trotted off, realizing his midnight snack had been ruined.
I went back to bed and all I could think was if I had not heard whatever I heard, she would have been gone. Scary stuff.
That brave little dummy, I’m just glad it all turned out OK.
