In Case You Didn't Believe Me...

....when I told you a couple months ago here (you can click on that 'here' to get 'there') that the disgusting slugs compete with the raccoons for the leftover dog food. And win.

I stepped outside tonight to bring in the leftover dog food dishes and found this:
(note the mucous)

And then, I notice these two making a run for it. Possibly even racing - at a snail's pace, of course. Whilst all the while pushing boulders of kibble in front of them with all their might.
(note the mucous)

It really is pretty friggin' unbelievable, isn't it? Disgusting and unbelievable. Do you think that they actually push the kibble right out of the dish? I wonder if they act as a team. Where do you suppose they are taking the kibble? Back to the nest? ewwwwww. Imagine that. A slug nest. A nest full of slugs. That's revolting. I tell you, though, if ever there was a place in the world where one would find a friggin' slug nest, it would be here. Right here. Probably just below the deck out there actually, now that I think of it.

"Take the Kibble and Run"

Isn't that a song from the 70's?

Ewwww, I'm glad we don't have slugs. Do you really think they have a nest?

Gross, they're like snakes but almost even worse because they'd be easier to step on (didn't you once? heebie jeebies)
