A Little Dog Fox Special

The ‘Little Dog Fox’ is something of an outsider of the group. He’s the runt of the litter and gets bullied by the other foxes, and has even lost a small part of his ear (presumably in one of the many fights he gets into). He gives as good as he gets, screams and rushes at the other foxes, but can also be very sweet and submissive. These are a few pictures taken of him during today, starting with a new habit of his: knocking on the back door!

    That door-knocking IS curious, isn’t it? I wonder what he’s thinking … He’s a pretty little guy, anyway; nice shots!

      He knows we come and go through that door, and sometimes have food so I guess he’s just reminding us that he exists. It’s backfired. We’re now training him away from the door and, to be fair, he is behaving better.

    Sticking tongue one is winner of the day for me 😀
