Houndog Joe didn't know about resurrection from the dead until today. Mr. Possum did indeed start his waddle away from the dead chicken carcass area toward safety, but five dogs caught wind of his plan. Joe has brought him up to the yard this time for safekeeping. I'm secretly on Mr. Possum's side, and am trying to distract the dogs, so in case this new, improved death is also a hoax, he can escape. It's not working. The dogs have learned that a possum can't be trusted to stay dead.
