Barking Deer

Merci:  We're going to do a fast post for tomorrow so we can shut down for the night.  Jan needs some rest.

Cyndi:  So far this week ...
at 3 AM Sunday night she tried to break a toe ...
Thursday Marcus messed up one knee ...
Friday "Anonymous" attacked her with a large ice chest, dropped onto and kicked her in the eye, clawed her face and arm ...

Buddy:  And Saturday evening when we started on our walk, the next door neighbors were sitting on their porch with their dog, who promptly raced at us challenging us to get off "her" property.  We got excited and yelled back, but Sam lunged so hard at the other dog Jan's feet left the ground and she nearly followed him face down on the cement.  She did regain control, yelled at Sam for nearly taking her out, and tried to continue walking but had to turn back because she was shaking with pain.

Sam:  I said I was sorry.  I was just trying to scare that mouthy little dog to protect all of us. I guess I don't know my own strength.

Micah:  A new week is dawning. What we all need right now is a Sunday Smile.  We never heard of a barking deer before but they actually do exist.  This one wandered into a yard and was so rude! It barked at the family cat.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

Rusty: Can you imagine meeting one of these in the dark?  It would give you quite a scare.

Cameron:  I think it's cute.We should get a couple to keep our grass mowed.

Marcus:  I'd be really jealous of all that beautiful green grass if it wasn't for the fact I like having a nude mud hole in the dog pen.

Percy:  Yesterday we posted the original photo of Angel Cotton, a sepia copy, and one in cinemascope.  Today we post it in black and white.  We didn't like the natural colors of the original but we do like the muted tones of the sepia and this black and white.

We are joining Dachshund Nola and her co-host Sugar the GR for the Black and White Sunday blog hop.

  7. That is one silly deer! Mom's feet left the ground on one of our walks. It was the longest and bloodiest walk home EVER. Sometimes we forget how strong we are.

  8. I hope you have a better week. Seems like all that stuff comes at once. That deer is too cute. Almost looks like it wants to play. Have a wonderful Sunday.
