I started wondering: is our dog part of the fox family. The animal shelter said ‘Giorgio Andy’ is Chihuahua sh/mix. Hmmm! But I was taking Giorgio for a walk, and we saw what I thought was a Chihuahua down the street. So I zoomed in on him. He was an old fox. I should have used my flash on this picture January 31. 2017. But I did not. Here is a picture:

I started thinking: Wow he looks like Giorgio! Hmmm!

So of course I googled this fox. Finally found the picture of long-haired Chihuahua. Hmmm! Giorgio is not short-haired. He is long-haired and not part mixed.

Long hair Chihuahuas tend to shed less. Although long-haired Chihuahua puppies do shed on a seasonal basis, typically twice every year, afterwards their coats tend to stay fairly low maintenance. Conversely, short-haired Chihuahua puppies will constantly shed and re-grow new fur which means ongoing grooming and maintenance for its owner.

This old fox this morning had a chicken bag, he must have retrieved from the trash. But not our trash this morning. I put bleach inside my trash can and outside the trash can. So that old fox couldn’t get in our trash. Guess he went into someone else’s. We spotted this guy at the lake land pool this morning taking a walk. I tell you! You can learn a lot from a fox! He was sitting out in the street 1/31/2017 enjoying his freedom and no one bothering him. Then he spotted us and ran in the woods. But as we walked by the woods. He was sitting in the trees watching us walk by. Then today he was in the pool area just chilling. Like no worries to mess with. Then I was taking several pictures of him. With flash this time. He was just sitting  there. He knew I was there so he stayed, probably waiting to exit. So when Giorgio and myself started walking , the fox went out of sight, with the chicken bag. He He. I guess that is why people say: Your as smart as a fox! He He.© Photo Artist Susan Ruth Robertson 090025006100 110.JPG

I am pretty sure he has been around here a while. He don’t bother no one. He keeps the cover on the trash. I really don’t know how he can get in the trash can. Rip open the bags! Then the cover is flipped back as if he never was in the trash can. Just saying. Makes me think of how many times I had to tell people close the door! Close that cabinet. Pick up your clothes etc. LOL
