What Does the Fox Say? She Says Thank You

She also says tch-ch-ch-chow! but she mostly says thank you to Allison at A Good Mother for making my foxy Halloween dreams come true.


I was resigned to being the horse who spoke to the fox in mor-or-or-or-orse because I found a horse head for $2 but no fox.  I bought said head and told Allison about it.  And she made me this fox hat out of pity for my lack of crafting skills.  So now Josh gets to be the horse and I get to be the FOX!

I think this is fair because I have an unusual love of foxes.  We have one in our town that sometimes trots through our neighbourhood.  I’ve gone outside to try to lure him into our home and be Truman’s friend, but he usually ignores me and keeps walking.  I’m not offended.  I get that he likes to be out on his own.  He doesn’t have time for me and a little guinea pig.  He’s a fox.  He has places to go, people to see.

So a massive thank you to Allison at A Good Mother.  If you don’t know her new blog, you should.  She’s an old blogger with new digs, and they’re pretty sweet.

Love it. She did a great job!

LOVE. We are HUGE Fox fans around here. The kid can often be found singing his own version of the song, including inserting many different sounds of inanimate objects or people (ex. the egg says ‘crack’ and the Mommy says ‘go on time out’).

You know that fox would eat your guinea pig, right? That’s a very lovely hat!

You’re cute. That is all.

Did you see this? My favorite fox photograph, maybe ever (besides one of cubs my great-great uncle took that I am naturally partial to).

Looks v cute. I love foxes, although they sometimes get a bad rep here – I think they do far more good than harm.

That is just wonderful – so perfect for you!

That’s great. I think I’d be the type to try to lure a fox close enough to touch. Right now one of my biggest desires is to visit the bat sanctuary and touch the bats.
