I think it’s cool that Roger has a pet fox and I’m sure it’ll be a fun topic of conversation here. 👍

It's kind of hard to tell in the photos but it kinda looks like his pupils slit like a cat's. Is that right?

That's interesting. I'd have assumed that all canids have eyes like a dog, but that's obviously not correct.

Is he skittish at all, Roger, or does he pretty much act like a dog? Or ?????

We had a half-coyote dog when I was in high school and she didn't really act like a typical dog at all.

Yep. And I’m always amazed how “catlike” they sometimes act in their mannerisms.

I had a half coyote / half red healer that was one of the smartest dogs I ever had. He didn’t act very dog like either. Never ever barked unless something was bad wrong. If he ever barked at night, you had better damn well grab your gun.

Are you collecting fox urine? I hear it's good critter control in the garden.

He's getting big fast. Have you let him outside yet to see what he does?

Love it man. Cool critters to watch work. Shot a grand total of one grey fox in my life and didn't like the feeling. Was a teenager and back then didn't mind shooting anything. Just wasn't for me. Cool critters. Hope he hangs around a long time.

Yep. Walked through a pygmy oak forest outside of the central coast town I was living in, heard all these funny birds chirping at me. Turns out there were about 3-4 grey foxes checking me out. A couple of them in the trees (that grew at a slant, easy for them to scale I guess). Quite the unusual sighting for me.

Anyways, I hope the two of you manage a good long association together. Though I'm betting it becomes an "outside" fox in the not too distant future.

I think Roger acquired it young enough that it might be ok. If not, he's got a good back up plan.
