Strange animal

Just seen the strangest animal in my neighbors yard. It was larger than a rabbit with the coloring of a gray squirrel but with longer fir. I didn't see a face since it was running away from me but what I thought was a tail was like a black ball of fir. Must have had short legs since I didn't see the legs but it ran quickly through the yard. I am pretty familiar with most of the wild animals in our area but I have not seen anything like this before.
