    Does anyone else think that this "newly-discovered" Japanese Raccoon Dog could be our Oy?

    Howdy thomkat. If that thing had a corkscrew tail I think it would be Oy personified. All the best, mal.

    There were a few unfortunate 'incidents' before they got the gene splicing just right.

    Wonder if they bark 'ake' in Japanese.

    Somewhat like that lil bumbler. I could fall in love with the doggies even though I am a cat person. I do love Oy.

    Tanukis have been one of my favourite animals for a couple of years now - really hoping to see one when we go back. My favourite sticker set on Facebook (yes I know a man of 54 should know better) is the Tanuki one[​IMG]

    I did a Google image search for billy-bumblers and nothing there came close to what I imagined Oy would look like. King makes several references to Oy's unusually long neck but no image I've seen portrays Oy with such a neck.
    When this comes out on film, I am looking forward to seeing how Oy looks!

    Probably something like a red panda I'm guessing
    [​IMG] Maybe they could digitally elongate the neck

    I always pictured a cross between a mink and a raccoon but with a more pleasant disposition.

    I don't know a lot about minks but the raccoons that were on our deck recently seemed to be somewhat tame (of course they were scarfing down a large quantity of bread and there was a lot to go around). It was a mother raccoon with four babies.

    Only saw them that one time and then they never came back.

    Raccoons are visious. Gosh, I've seen them attacking. Not me, but a crate of kittens that a neighbor was saving. It was horrible to hear and see. They look cute, but do not go near.

    Okay thanks - I will be more careful in future - my Siamese cat was staring at them through the screen door when I was throwing food scraps out onto the deck (this was tonight).

    I was quite surprised to see them come back as they had been gone for quite a while.

    They could easily have charged toward Bailey and attacked if they were quick, but luckily they seemed more interested in the goodies that they were scarfing down!
