The Mouse Adventure… Happy Ending


Going out back midday, a few days after our early morning mouse encounter, there it was again. Sitting on the pool edge it was chased back into the water by the dogs.


Knowing that this was not going to be a good outcome if I didn’t intervene, I picked up the pool basket. Scooping the little thing up, I brought it out to the back fence. This was the first mouse that has survived the pool. Usually they just circle until they drown. This one was smarter by far. Remembering the fable of the “Mouse and the Lion”, I gave it a lift to find a new home on the other side of the fence.

And who knows, maybe someday it will repay my favor…
