Quick Foxes
There were no foxes in New Zealand when I was growing up but I was surprised at the number of foxes I saw in the inner city of Melbourne when I lived around Princes Park (Carlton). The foxes were always quick and would escape from public gaze into the grounds of the cemetery. Any foxes where you live?

I have never seen a fox jump over a lazy dog.

Slow Brown Fox
Here is a video clip of a slow brown fox jumping over a lazy dog.
