Although Zoey was very unhappy about it, we got her inside while Roy and I went outside to investigate.
This little guy was unhappily trying to make himself invisible under a piece of equipment in a little lean-to attached to the side of the house.
Roy got behind him and tried to coax him to travel on to safer pastures, but he was not eager to step out into the sunshine and leave.
We think he was just a teenager, probably from this year's litter. He seemed to be hesitant to step off the slab of the lean-to. (Probably because of the large lady holding the camera directly in front of him.)
Eventually he did take a hard right and disappear under our deck. The deck is surrounded by flower beds and shrubbery and our dog has been trained not to go under there so I think Mr. Woodchuck will be safe until he sees his way clear to leaving us humans . . . and that barky dog . . . behind.
