It looked as if there was a Golden Retriever on the road ahead, similar to Georgie, the golden grand-dog in the back seat. However, it is unusual to see dogs on the roads in Prince Edward Island. We slowed down on this country road about fifteen minutes from home and as we drew near, we realized it was a fox. Since it was green bin day and the temperature was mild, the compost bins probably enticed this beauty to the road for a sniff and a look around.
The small Red Fox ran down over the embankment when Georgie started to bark. Then it stopped and watched as I put down the window and took some photos.
Georgie couldn’t see it from her position and stopped barking. The fox stayed there for a few minutes before it headed into the woods.
There are foxes in our area and they hunt in the neighbourhood at night. We’ve caught them on the doorbell camera a few times crossing the front walkway. When Georgie visits, she always follows the tracks around the house, sniffing as she goes. Sometimes she wakes in the middle of the night and wants to go fox hunting but we’ve banned it in our yard. Georgie, like us, admires them from afar but is much louder about it.
