Sorry. I lost the thread of the discussion some way back there. Now I get it.

So what's the best way to keep a possum's knees clean?

Do they wear knee pads?
No need, when they are playing possum, just stroll up and wash 'em. That reminds me, my nephew-in-law has a pest control company. He went to a woman's house to remove a dead opossum from a closet. She asked how much and when she heard $50, she picked it up and carried it to her yard herself. He's like, lady, the price was high because that was a live animal. She freaked when she saw it get up and saunter away.
 
Maybe she was using one of these possum cushions:



After this thread, I might need to order one of the possum wool sweaters for frostbiting!



Or maybe a possum fur hat:



The companies claim that:
Each night the possums in New Zealand eat 22,000 tonnes of native forest. Your purchase not only means that you have acquired a unique garment that will give you years of pleasure but also that you have contributed to the preservation of our native bush and forests.

The natural property of the world's only 'eco fur' is that each fibre is hollow and thus gives excellant insulation whilst ensuring that the garments are light and very soft. As well as incredible softness and warmth the yarn is strong and durable. Rigorous tests have proven that it wears better than Cashmere and has superior anti-piling qualities.

I will do that this morning...

As for out on the water? I am waiting until he swims a bit better. He is close to being being conditioned enough to be a swim forever dog but the chest cavity needs to grow before his built in floatation is there for long effortless swimming.

How well does he hike?

Ya know...That will be an interesting thing to find out. Back in the early eighties I sailed a lot with Wabash on board. He used to either sit on the high side and "get interested" in the waves and water and jump off....so I had to go back and get him...Or he would sit calmly with his 84 lbs on the low side of the cockpit and his head reaching so his head could dangle in the waves...very hard to hike hard enough to make up for that.

In 1994 I started taking Skipper sailing and all he did was dance around in the cockpit ( all over my rapidly bashed up shins) wagging his hairy tail in my face as he chased whatever splashes of water made their way into his view.
This would be Wabash and Skipper playing in 1994. Wabash was about 15 and Skipper was about 18 months old. Wabash had such an old bad worn out body he could hardly move, so Skipper did most of the playing for both of them
