This is my resident opossum, he has lived at my place for quite some time. I have named him O’Pee. These pictures do not show his size…trust me he is huge. When I am out on the porch with him he is fine and I talk to him. He doesn’t mind me getting near him and taking pictures. I was about 4 feet from him taking these pictures. If Chancy goes out with me then O’Pee gets nervous and begins drooling but he never makes a sound. Chancy doesn’t bark at him and I am glad of that. He is a very smart and sweet dog and has learned that I love all critters and he is kind to them. I am just so blessed to have him, Pooh and the wild critters around me.
