Maybe he was just dead drunk. We have lots of those on this side of the country. I've never seen one drinking though. Your Ma Ape is very brave to go out and get the body. Did she have a zippered bag to put it in? I hope it was sent to the morgue.

Hi Wally! HI ETHEL!!!!!!!!!

ok, now I find it hard to believe that beautiful & innocent Ethel would partake in such slaughter...or giving alchol to possom minors...looked kinda young....Looks like drug overdose to this the 2nd time the CSI has come to your house today? I bet the neighbors are really talking about you all on the block!
Love & Licks,

ps...did you see what Moxie & Izzie got them selves into the other day at the Corgi Lounge? Is Ethel going away like that too? To the big house?

oh yucky yuck ewwwwwwwwwww groooossssss! Clearly, this isn't Sophie speaking, because she'd probably think it was totally cool and roll on it. Yuck, yuck, yuck. That tail is horrible. This is the creature that Sophie's "retreat" is named after. I have to find her a new kennel. Possum Place just isn't going to cut it anymore.

He doesn't look well does he. Did you check for a pulse? Was the bottle empty when you found him?

Ethel the Possum Slayer!! I think that's got quite a nice ring to it. She could have her own TV series, and you could be her sidekick, Wally.

Let me know if you need technical advisor for the series. I'd do it for a really cheap rate.

Goob love,

OMdoG.. you know what really grossed me out?? It's the tail of the possum... ewwwwwwww... (I reckon the cause of death could be 'sudden, untimely death from alcohol intoxication)

Gross. Trigger would love that. In fact, he could be another suspect as he has been known to murder squirrels! Hmm, Ethel could be his dream woman!

hahahahaha! Wally, you are so funny :)

I'm sorry your ma ape had to clean that up. I don't even enjoy dead stuff, and I'm a DOG, so I can sympathize with her.

YUCK!!! We had an expired mouse in the driveway the other day - but it was no where near the size of a opposum! Nor as ugly....and yet my mama still had to have my pop pick it up. I would've helped, but I don't have opposable thumbs. :)
