    1. Greetings, Believe it or not Russians did a study of foxes and they were much easier to to domesticate than the wolf/dog evolution was.

  2. Can't imagine a fox being domesticated, but it's true by the video.
    No foxes in Tasmania, people thought there was but turned out to be no foxes.

    1. I find it fascinating. They've proved much easier to domesticate than other wild animals. In Russia, some of the foxes that were domesticated were sold as pets.

  3. Foxes are another destructive, intelligent creature with a lot of charm (for me anyway).
    Congratulations to J Lenni Dorner. That is an anthology I would really like to read.

    1. I love foxes. They are gorgeous, fascinating creatures, though not good to have around outdoor cats...or chickens....etc

  4. Still not sure I'd want one as a pet.
    Big congratulations to you and all of the IWSG anthology authors!

  7. Congrats!

    Foxes are smelly? I wonder if it's a funk like ferrets possess?

  10. This reminds me of Ron the fox from the YouTube channel Fox Goes Floof. It was so sad when he passed away.

    On a cheerier note: Happy Debut Day!

    1. Hi Yvonne,
      I know we have them around here, but I never see them. What we have a lot of is coyotes.

  15. Angels: "So is that like a cat or a dog or what"

    God: "ummm... ........ ..................... let's just call it a fox."


    I'd love a fox, but they are mighty stinky. Sort of a skunky smell.

  19. the fox is adorable, but domesticated or not, I don't think my two "boys" would be interested in one.

    Congratulations on the release of Parallels. And congrats to the lucky winner, too. Just from the book jacket, it looks like something I would read (if only I had time to read at the moment).

    1. No, I don't think they'd be too thrilled if you brought home a fox. Grin.
