Kate received a call from one of her friends telling her that she had found a baby raccoon in her tire wheel. Honestly, Kate did not think that the poor animal would be able to survive. However, he fortunately did. The little raccoon was without his mom for a few days.
So, the kind woman brought the tiny one home, and the baby just wanted to eat. She named him Eto. By day three, he was a completely different kit. Finally, Kate decided to let him explore the outside world.
This was when Eto started to completely trust Kate. She did not force him to stay indoors. The little one even became friends with Kate’s pet Pitbull, Ashlyn. The dog wanted to protect Eto right away when she met the baby raccoon.
Ashlyn watched Eto and looked at him as if she were the tiny raccoon’s mom. The dog taught him how to sniff and how to navigate the forest. She also taught Eto what to look out for. Kate found it fantastic. The two of them instantly connected. Ashlyn was a guard dog for Eto, and they could just be out in the forest for hours on end together.
Once Eto grew up, Kate and Ashlyn decided to teach him how to fish. Later they went swimming with the baby. Eto kept walking through her feet, searching for crayfish. Soon the relationship of both the animals blossomed from a mom-son role to best friends. Ashlyn and Eto jumped and chased each other and had a blast.
The instant Ashlyn was out of her mom mode, she changed into a playful dog and loved to do zoomies like a crazy lady. She knew exactly when it was time to play and when to work. Ashlyn understood what Eto wanted. So while the little one ate his breakfast, she would wait for him to finish.
The two of them taught each other. Kate had an open-door policy for Eto. He could come and go as he wanted. At one point, he was gone for a few weeks. However, he returned for a couple of months. Due to this reason, Ashlyn did not struggle with Eto leaving her. They were happy that he was living with his wildlife. Kate believed that both the animals walked away with good things from their relationship, which was more than enough.
