Fox tales — 36 Comments

  1. It’s great to read about your visiting fox. Wow! I hope you might come back from Yuma and share your water bowl some more.

    On another different note, my mom dreamed about Roxy all night last night! In the dream, we were taking care of Roxy for you for a little bit, and Roxy didn’t have any aches and pains and was scampering and cuddling. Wild, eh?

    Tootsie (and Mom)

  2. Gosh and we so would chase Mr Foxy given half a chance. Would serve him right for the poodadle in the water bowl we say. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. that is sad that the fox has no water and nice that you gave it to him….but I do have one URGENT question….”WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY???!!!” BOL BOL BOL BOL!!!!!

  4. He looks like a healthy little guy. I think they get most of their fluids from eating their prey. I feed raw, and my dogs drink very little water unless they have been playing hard or it’s hot.
    I have a water bowl out in my yard and the bunnies and squirrels drink it dry in the summer.

  5. Well Foxy Roxy story was cute with pics and everything. I bet people have domesticated the little guy. I heard a story about how Yuma got its name. A fellow was going to be hung and right before he died they asked if he had a final word or words to say and he said. ” You ma… then died

  6. Aww!!! How cute is that! I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing a fox that close up before. On
    Y ever driving by and saw them running beside the road and things like that.
    Great hop your in to! I can’t link up though, I am co hosting with Ruckus the Eskie for thoughtless Thursday.
    Love your post :)

  7. He’s adorable! I kind of hope you guys don’t like Yuma, too, because I want to see more photos of the fox. Safe travels today, and be a good girl, Roxy.

    PS – I wonder if your water bowl might attract less pleasant visitors, like rattle snakes. =(

  8. So cute! Foxes are fairly rare around here, so you’re very lucky if you get to see one! Nice that the little guy was able to share your water dish for a bit – can’t be easy for a fox in the desert.

  9. 3:10 to Yuma, eh Roxy? I hope you have fun there. That fox is pretty cute…and you gotta feel bad if he needed to keep coming to get a drink at your bowl. Maybe he couldn’t find the water source?!?
    Drive safe! *Cairn cuddles*

  10. That’s pretty dang cool. We had (haven’t seen it in a while) a fox around our place, but that little guy was super fast. Maybe because we are in a much more populated area? Anyway I saw him a couple of times but most of my photos were just blurs. I wonder at his confidence to approach an inhabited spot? Especially during the day?

    Make sure you and Roxy stay close to Mom and Dad, you wouldn’t want to tangle with a fox!

    Thanks for joining Thursday Barks and Bytes, it’s fun to have you along.

  11. That fox would definitely keep coming back if you stayed there since he found a good water source. I’m sure he’ll miss you while you’re away, but don’t worry, he didn’t live this long without knowing how to find water! :) Hope you enjoy Yuma!

  12. How fun! He looks pretty healthy so I imagine he is drinking your water out of convenience rather than desperate need.

  13. That is really amazing and your mom got some fabulous pictures. How handy for the fox to have a nice water bowl just for him. Maybe the next people will leave water? teehee You are lucky to be where you are. It is mighty cold here. That fox needs his warm coat here.

    Thanks so much for joining the Barks and Bytes hop. :)

  14. Oh he’s cute! And his tail is so fluffy! And he’s probably eaten all the neighboring chickens for miles. Not a big fox fan.

  15. That is a brave little fox to come right up to get a drink like that. I bet he will miss you when you head out, but hopefully he’ll follow those sheep and find water elsewhere. :-)

  16. How nice that you shared your water with that cute little fox. He must have been really thirsty if your barking didn’t scare him away! Hope you have fun in Yuma!

  17. I love your little gray fox! What a cutie. Too bad that you have to say good-bye to him.

    We once camped in a spot where a gray fox pooped on our camp stove every night (when it was close and sealed). I wished I had brought a trail cam so that I could’ve gotten a photo of the culprit!

    Have fun in Yuma!

  18. You get to see so many great things! We have had a few fox in our area but I have yet to capture one on camera!
