"if you get bit, you're on your own"

disclaimer: you never know what's going to happen when you live in the country.

dathan: "erica! come outside, quick!"
me (after coming outside): "shhhh don't get rid of it yet, let me get my camera"

me: "uhhhh.... honey... what is that?"
dathan: "a beaver? a ground hog? a hedge hog? i have no idea."

dathan: "i need to go lock the dogs up so i can shoo this thing away without them chasing it."
me: "ok, i'm just gonna take a couple more pictures."

dathan: "ok honey, just remember... if you get bit, you're on your own."
me: "thanks dear."

i didn't get bit.

That is awesome! How cute is he?! Probably wouldn't be cute if he bit you though :)
