Chupacabra sighting

Yesterday morning, my Dad and I were watching out the window towards the creek that runs along the back of their property and this strange creature trotted by. I said, "What the heck is that"? My Dad grabbed his camera and said that it was a coyote. It was not a coyote. It ran like a hyena. Fortunately for us, it was kind enough to stop a couple of times to shake, making it possible for my Dad to get a good photo of it.

I told him that it was a chupacabra. It is actually a Xoloitzcuintli. It's a rather odd creature. The picture was taken in Bastrop on Pine Creek. My parents have seen lots of wildlife, but nothing like this!

Hop to it!

My sweet neighbor had a rummage sale and she gave me first dibs! She kept showing me stuff and I kept saying, "Put it in my stack" and almost $200 later, I had quite a stack going. I bought a few magnetic chalkboards and decided that the wooden rabbit that I had picked up earlier would go great on one of them. Originally, I was going to build a shelf and attach the rabbit to the top of it. It was much easier to add the rabbit to something already made, don't ya think?
