Gopher On My Patio

I woke up the other morning and went downstairs to get a glass of water. Just as I went to go back upstairs, I saw something out of my peripheral vision that sparked my curios. I went to the back door to get a better view and there was a legit gopher chilling on my patio. I knew there was at least one that lived in my yard, which is three acres so there's a lot of room for them to hide I suppose. I do know where one gopher hole is but they don't bother anyone and I kind of like the wildlife. I thought about letting my dog out to chase the gopher off but decided not to for whatever reason. My dog (yorkie/terrier mix) chases full grown dear out of our yard, its hilarious. I'm very glad to be living in the suburbs when I think about it. I couldn't live in a rural or urban environment. Suburbia is a good mix of the two in my opinion. Here are a couple picture that I managed to snap before the gopher ran off. The quality isn't too good but you should be able to see it somewhat.
