Guess what I did last night?

I treed a raccoon!

What happened was, Dad let us out for our last potty break of the night and all of a sudden, I saw this terrifying creature with humongous sharp claws and beady eyes and I knew right away I had to protect my family from this dangerous and vicious invader.

Note: NOT the actual raccoon. It was too dark to take a picture but I super promise you ours was WAY more evil looking than this one. I think it even had horns and breathed fire!

So lightning fast I chased it up a tree and growled at it and told it in no uncertain terms that it better not mess with MY family, by golly! Well, I wanted to wait until it came down to give it a good talking to and make sure it understood that it was NOT welcome in our yard ever again. But can you believe it? Dad made me go back inside! Now I did not think this is the Most Wisest decision dad ever has made. But there was just no convincing him. I luvs my pawrents but sometimes they can be quite unreasonable.

But…I don’t wants anybuddy to worry about my family being invaded by marauding raccoons.

Cuz Coondog Mayzie is on the case!

Hey, raccoons! I've got my eye on you!

  1. Fire Breathing, horned Raccoons sound really dangerous. It is times like this I realise how lucky we are living in You Kay cos (despite the rain/wind/sun/drisle) we donts have Raccoons even unhorned normal breathing ones! All we has is (rain/sun/wind/drisle) spiders and they aint at all dangerous!


  2. Oh dat sounds so scary Mayzie, Your Poppa is very lucky to haves such a brave you to protects him.
    You is a HEROINE !

  3. Phew, that was extreme bravery chasing after the horrible beast. Weren’t you scared at all? I hope dad appreciates how you saved him.


  4. I know you’re brave, Mayzie, but watch your nose! Those raccoons are meanies! 🙂

  5. Mayzie! Making the world safer, one racoon at a time!

  6. Wowser Maysie! those raccoons are turrible and dangerous. You must make certain not to let Brudder Ranger out – because he might be like Teka and try to climb the tree. We left our raccoon in Mayemphis. Maybe he has moved to your house.

    Well done Mayzie. Our yard has no trees, so if I see a raccoon I am in BIG trouble…


  8. That’s why your Dad made you go in, Mayzie! It was probably late and he wanted to go bed. And….now he could sleep soundly knowing that you will never let an attack raccoon get anywhere near the family. Can you imagine what a good feeling that must be for him? It’s gotta be a HUGE worry off his shoulders. You are such a comfort to them. Lucky thing is, you can tell they appreciate it.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  9. And I thought my close encounter with the shrew was exciting! My dog, Mayzie, that’s just so incredible! I’m glad you showed that wild beast who was the queen of your yard. You’d better patrol pretty closely for a while to make sure he doesn’t bring all his friends to have a party in your back yard!


  10. Oh my goodness, Mayzie! You’re so brave for protecting your family!

  11. OMD, Mayzie! How exciting! Maybe if you’re lucky he’s still in the tree this morning! You’d better check… and keep your eye on it! That tree is probably in cahoots with the racoon! Maybe a good strategy for you and brudder Ranger is to leave lots of pee mail around the tree so they both get the message that you guys aren’t fooling around!

  12. Mayzie, we are very proud of and impressed with your bravery. But we think Dad did the right thing making you come inside. Those raccoons have nasty tricks and we would not want to see our special girl hurt at all.

    Careful Mayzie! You’ll end up having a soap opera with dat racoon like Puddles had wif dat groundhog!!

  14. Good girl Mayzie, for telling that raccoon to leave the premises. At least you got it up in the tree. You have to be careful of those animals, they can be mean as the dickens. I saw one chase all three of my dogs a long time ago.
    Have a great day.

  15. We know how scawy raccoons can be! One was living in our attic – He was HUGE! AT least ours didn’t have horns and breathe fire!! Yikes!

  16. wow, Mayzie…you are SOOOO brave! I’ve never seen a racoon, but I’m pretty sure I’d run behind Mom and tell her to deal with it.

    Good thing you were on patrol!

  17. Miss Mayzie,

    What would your family do without you? I tell you what, it’s just exhausting the way we have to keep our families safe! Good work!!!!!!!!

  18. that’s my most amazing hunting dog girl!! those raccoons will get the shakies when they hear your name now, miss mayzie!! 🙂

  20. Those Elgin Pugs

    Good job Mayzie girl!! Give ‘um what for…
    don’t let ‘dat beady eye bandit get ‘da upper hand…
    just a stiff upper lip!! hee hees

  21. Whew, that was a close one! It is a good thing you scared that thing up the tree. You were so brave to protect your family like that – we bet your dad just wanted you inside so that the thing could leave and never bother you all again!!

    But that picture is a really cute one – but we know that you are probably right about the one at your house with the fire and horns and stuff.

  22. You are a very braves girl Mayzie!!

    Woofs and Kisses!

  23. Wow, you sure are brave. Keep up the great work.

    Great job chasing that mean old raccoon and saving your family! It will think lots of times before coming back to your yard! I wish your brave self was here when I found one under our deck – it had awful beady eyes and it said “URRFGH!”! Mom was afraid that raccoon would bite me and make me have something called “raybees”, so she told me to come inside too. We have to make sure those wild critters don’t get our moms and dads and brothers and sisters and boys and girls!

    Mayzie, that’s what it’s ALL about. Protecting your family from strange, evil creatures. I bet your Mum and Dad are even much more gladder you chose to live with them.

    SHE says she had a pet raccoon when she lived in VA–found it injured on the road. SHE says it’ll eat ANY left over dog or cat food, so watch your bowls. Sometimes they even come in a dog door. So be vigilant! You’d better have a talk with Ranger so he can help.

    That raccoon in the video shouldn’t have eaten so much!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  26. YAY Mayzie yours is a featured blog on Pets Blogroll WTG !


  27. Oh dats my BFF…dats whatt I be talkin bout…UH HUH!!!!!
    Wait just a second, I gots to get on desk and do a little dance…………………

    Okays, I be back now. See dis here is just proof what I can teach you. Well of course, my encounter withs da ground hog was just fun, I wasn’t trying to protect nobuddy…hehehe! Anyways, I fur one am over da moon excited about you scareing dat beast and making it retreat into a tree. Oh my gosh, I bets your heart was just racing from all da excitement.
    But, I don’t understand why your dad wouldn’t let you haves it or at least play with it fur a little while…you know likes a chew toy or sumptin.
    Dis will go down in da history books.


  28. Your D-N-A report neglekhted to inkhlude khoonhound!



  29. you are so super cool!

    Don’t forget, we’ve moved to

  30. Good job, Mayzie!
    Your mom and dad must be very happy to have you there to protect them!
    Kisses and hugs

  31. You rock Mayzie. Are you going to learn how to climb trees soon? 🙂

  32. Oh the fun things that happen during last call.:)

  33. WOW!!! You are a bonifide HERO, Mayzie! Those coons are mean and have huge teeth and they DO have big blazing red eyes if a flashlight is shone into them! That really could have been some picture if your Dad had been able to get it with a Flashy beastie, but it also might have made it jump on your Daddy, too, so he was wise to just leave it be. Maybe you scared it enough to keep it off your property now! The CCC

    PS I plan to award you a Mighty Hunter Club Award! Dott
