Yesterday was a blustery, snowy kind of day and I didn’t want to be outside at all. But today was a different kind of day. The sun came out and the air was crisp and cool. The perfect day for a walk.
It’s a good thing today was a good walking day because I found an animal that I’ve never seen on my trails before. Today I made friends with a raccoon.
I didn’t know what to expect from a raccoon because I’ve never met one before.
At first he was kind of shy.
He even tried to run away from me.
But the raccoon’s friends tried to help. He didn’t seem to be afraid of them at all, even though they weren’t raccoons.
Finally we became friends. That little raccoon put his fear aside and patted my head.
He even taught me how to play a game.
I had so much fun with my new friend today. I hope he’s just the first of a whole family of raccoons that I get to meet on my trails.

How cool! Looks like you had fun. Ginger says he looks like a squirrel to her so eat him… dad is holding his head and sighing again… wonder why?

Ginger, that little raccoon was far too cute to eat. And not pesky like a squirrel.

It is fantastic that such cute animals can be met on your trails! 🙂

Kolytyi, my trails are great. I make all kinds of friends on them. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

That may well be the cutest raccoon I’ve ever seen. …. It’s also the ONLY raccoon I’ve ever seen. I hope I see one by my house. I want to taste him.
Love and licks,

Cupcake, tasting licks are good on this kind of raccoon. Just make sure you don’t bite one of them. He was awfully cute.

Oh, lovely raccoon, Bongo! Glad you had such a great time after yesterday’s ordeal!

Marina, it was much more fun playing with a raccoon than it was braving the terrible snowstorm.

that is the coolest hat ever!
December 29, 2012 at 2:24 pm
That hat is pretty cool, isn’t it?

Well, thanks to you and your love of dogs, I was forced to write a post on my childhood dog, Worthless. I hope you enjoy it.
December 29, 2012 at 6:21 pm
It was a great story. My person keeps me in tight control – always on a leash – or I might be just like Worthless.

That is the biggest raccoon I have ever seen. And where was his tail? I think you have a whole different species of raccoon on your trail than we do here.
December 29, 2012 at 6:22 pm
Patricia, you mean there’s more kinds of raccoons? This is the only one I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to meet the other kind.

Whoa! Way cool!

I thought so too Rumpy.
December 29, 2012 at 8:55 pm
Cute little raccoon, and very playful; I think he liked you, Bongo!
December 30, 2012 at 7:50 pm
Barb, I sure hope that raccoon liked me, because I liked him.
December 30, 2012 at 1:52 am
He looks like a very large raccoon I might have been cautious at first. But since He is so friendly you can just enjoy his company. It’s great that he made friends with you Bongo:)
December 30, 2012 at 7:51 pm
Lexie and Mica, my person says he was very big as far as raccoons go. But he definitely was friendly.
December 30, 2012 at 7:15 am
Awww…your new raccoon friend is so cute! These pictures, you and the lovely raccon playing together made me smile and feel happy! You look very happy, too Bongo! 🙂
December 30, 2012 at 7:51 pm
Kevin, I was having a great time playing with my new raccoon friend.
December 30, 2012 at 10:01 am
What a lovely friend the raccoon turned out to be!
December 30, 2012 at 7:53 pm
Misaki, that raccoon was a great friend. My person said he probably doesn’t live around here though. I wish we had some raccoons that lived closer.

Chancy and Mumsy, it sure was fun playing with that raccoon. I hope you have a Happy New Year too. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

Wow, Bongo, you make friends with raccoons and such a friendly one too 🙂
January 6, 2013 at 8:00 pm
Angels Whisper, I’m hoping all the raccoons I meet are as friendly as that one.
