I really love that we have lots of red foxes in the neighborhood. I often see them when I’m walking the dog or occasionally when they just happen to be running through the yard. I think they’re really very handsome creatures. However, they do have an annoying habit of sitting in our yard and “barking” in the wee hours of the morning. If you’ve never heard the sound they make, take a listen. It isn’t at all like a dog’s bark, but more like a scream. I assure you it is quite eerie and un-nerving when it wakes you up from a sound sleep. Not to mention, Gimlet goes absolutely berserk at that point.
