Early Morning Heartbreak

Almost every day I get up before the sun and take a cup of coffee to the front porch. I sit and listen to the birds and watch the bats in their last frantic effort to feed before sunrise. But my real reason for sitting out front instead of in back is that I can watch our foxes romping on the wide expanse of grass across the road. That was not the case this morning. Instead of enjoying the beginning of the day it was early morning heartbreak for me.

  1. Awe, so sorry you found them like that. I understand the circle of life and if it had been a coyote I would not like it but understand it but when humans are involved it saddens me so much.

  2. This saddens me so much. I’m so sorry that you were faced with such heartbreak this morning. Speed limits are there for a reason, it’s annoying to think that this was caused by an inconsiderate human being who was so caught up in his/her need to speed down the road.

    1. I can’t believe how much I sobbed over those foxes. But they’ve become a wild part of the family over the years. And now I’m worried about Spooky (the one who wasn’t on the road). He’s so shy I’m afraid he’ll stay in the den with Victoria and Caution gone.

      1. I didn’t know what to say. I mean there’s nothing that I could say that would make it better. I love our foxes, rabbits, birds, etc. When one goes missing or is found, it’s heartbreaking. They are like our little families.


      1. I know. My daughter dog Pierre was bitten by coyote in our back yard. We didn’t how to tell her. But we thought we should tell her before she went to school. She took a look and cried. I don’t know how she handled school that day!! It’s sad of what happened to you foxes! You’re grief your loss for awhile!
