The New Face of Evil
I came home to find that Cleveland's summer weather had kicked in, bringing high heat and lots of rain, which was very good for my strawberry patch. The leaves were huge and there were berries aplenty, all approaching ripe red goodness.
And then one afternoon, I opened the back door to let Sienna the Dog out and there in the middle of the lawn was the Scurrilous Groundhog, who has previously poached from my compost pile.
And not one of my strawberries remained.
Sienna the Dog very nearly caught the fat thief, who has built up his very own Talibanesque network of tunnels in our backyard, but he remains at large.
