Rodent of Mystery

While I was home, my dog briefly made friends with one of the largest wild rodents I’ve ever seen on our property. We guessed that it was some kind of kangaroo rat, but I didn’t think those lived in Hollister. Kangaroo rat or not, this thing was huge. Chief is a medium-sized dog, and the thing was more than half the size of his head.

The story ends there, because I’m choosing to end it there.

    Also, you really ought to have called this a rodent of unusual size.
