Trouble in the neighborhood…

If you read my blog often (or when I post anyway) you know that back in May we discovered our resident groundhog Chuckie had a family.  At first I thought 5 babies, but I later lowered that to 4.  (I will not think anything happened to one, I refuse, I just miscounted that’s all.) 

I’ve quite enjoyed watching their antics, wresting with each other, climbing trees 

 (or trying anyway) and just everyday doings in the groundhog household.
 They entertained Mike and Kelly when they were here the beginning of the month too, even coming outside of their house while we were sitting on the deck (about 75 feet away).
 Then one day we saw Chuckie was closer to the house than he’d ever been before, he seemed to be looking for something, and I was afraid one of the babies had come closer to the house.  Then I realized I hadn’t seen the family that day.  And I didn’t see them the next day either.
I went back over my pictures (over 500 of them) and realized that the last time I’d seen the babies was June 5th.  And I hadn’t seen Mom since then either… just Chuckie, who seemed to be looking for something, and now I know what. 

I will not think bad things… I’m just going to say that things didn’t work out between them and Mom and kids moved on.  And please don’t tell me otherwise. 


  1. Thank you for the update. . . . I was enjoying the updates.

  2. I agree with you....and I don't want to hear anything different!
