Default Diving for coons

So, tune in, folks, to more adventures with Sadie and the critters of Enchanted Village.*

When last we heard of the fearless critter-warrior, she was antelope-bucking and snorting the ground simultaneously. We now have another Olympic sport on which to report.

Fearless Sadie was happily sniffing the late-night air out of the backseat window of the slowly-moving Toyota. (Said window was 2/3 rolled up as she has lost 1/2-window-down privileges by jumping out while the car was entering the garage.) The driver of the car saw springs' first visible raccoon first. Its head was barely visible, surrounded by thick shrubbery. "No worries," thought the foolish driver, glancing into the back seat. Fearless Sadie had not made a move.

But, lo. A second, friskier raccoon ventured out of the shrubbery and bounded across the lawn. As the driver turned around, Sadie's back feet were up almost touching the inside roof of the car, quickly disappearing out of the slit in the window. Dog overboard! A perfect Olympic dive.

The driver was wearing house shoes, not fit for running -- or even serious walking. Nevertheless, she tumbled out of the car in flash, lurching along in the night, screaming in her most threatening voice. "HAHAHAHA," said the bubble over Sadie's head. Darting and feinting, the dog was a blur of fur, covering three lawns in record time, shattering the old Olympic record.
The lumbering, aged driver was no challenge to this north-wind of a dog. Oh, what to do?

Mercifully, a scent on the ground froze Fearless Sadie into a statue of snarf, her nose Epoxied to the grass in total concentration. Only then was the driver able to whisk her up and set her back into the car.

The short drive home was silent. All of the windows were completely closed. The driver was remembering the skunk-smell in the neighborhood from the night before and gave thanks that she was taking Sadie out of town soon.

*Yes, that's the actual name of my condo!

LOL......I think your Sadie and mine would have great adventures together. Good thing she didn't catch those coons though. They can be pretty vicious.
My Sadie caught sight of one crossing the creek in town on a water pipe that runs under the bridge we were crossing and she wanted to go after it and I'm wondering if there is one in the neighborhood as she's been barking and wanting to get out of the yard in late evening when no one is walking by and I wondered if she saw a coon or something.
My Sadie never tries to jump out the window because she wears a seat belt. She has a harness with a loop on it for the seat belt and we don't go anywhere more than a couple of blocks without it on.

I know -- I am a terrible mom. I shouldn't allow her to be a free-range backseater. When I got her, I realized she'd never been given the luxury of smelling out of a car window. Now she's a hard-core addict. I will have to find a 12-step program for her.

She only gets to do this at specified times and under certain conditions; however, it appears that I will now have to get her to go cold turkey.
