R.I.P. baby groundhog
Tonight, Beignet brought me a special gift. I looked outside and saw her on the deck, but then I noticed she had something in her mouth and it appeared to have feet. I freaked out, went out there, and told her to drop it. She was all too happy to lay it at my feet-- she was obviously QUITE proud of herself for bringing it to me.
It looks like a baby groundhog, probably one of the babies of that big groundhog I saw in the yard the other day. I can only hope that Beignet didn't kill it and found it dead, but I seriously doubt that to be the case. When I picked it up in a towel to dispose of it, it was still pliable and warm. It was disgusting and sad all at the same time. Poor little baby! I cried a little bit. I feel like I should be mad at Beignet, but it's not her fault...she was just following her instinct. Sad. It just makes me wonder if the mama groundhog is out back, trying to find the baby...great, I'm starting to get teary again.
This is the first time Beignet has ever brought me an animal. One time she brought me a skull of an animal, but it was obviously really old and therefore not as gross and disturbing.
