Baby Raccoons in a Backyard in Central Virginia

Our 3 year old chocolate lab/husky mix alerted us in the early morning that there was something to be found in a small tree in our backyard. Upon closer investigation, we found these two cute baby raccoons just hanging out. They were a little frightened at first but calmed down after we took the dog inside. They were found the rest of the day lounging in the tree until their Mama came back to them and then they moved on to another spot.
