So, I am just catching up on this entire post and I'm seriously having a hard time staying in my chair!!!
You all just have me cracking up!
We have ducks that live in the park behind our house & every Spring the Canadian geese make their stop along their route home there, too. Max is short & stout at only 35 lbs, but he always freaks out barking, running at the fence as if he's going to take them on! Really, Max, those geese are bigger than you & meaner! He doesn't care, he's a terrier, so he has short man syndrome.
Cassie catches bunnies all the time but the squirrels climb, so they're usually safe. Although not always brilliant - more than once I've watched those stupid squirrels run around the pool deck railing, then jump about 10 feet to the branches of the blue spruce trees! It's way easier to jump over to the shed - maybe 5 feet. Sometimes they miss the branches & land on the ground, from 8 feet up, but they have to run fast, no time to shake it off, or the dogs will catch them!
Then of course, there's the various varmints that decide to live under our deck - ground hog, opossum & raccoon. Mostly nocturnal, so they freak my dogs out when they wander onto the deck lol

Oh Jasper!!! You are sooo focused!!! Love it! Good thing your Mamma has you on a tight leash!
The Peahen looks a little like the Roadrunner cartoon. And, of course, that leads to naming the Couotes "Wiley" I would love to know Jasper's thought bubble as he sizes Penelope up 🙂 I'm thinking Jasper would want to make friends 🙂
A d Max, you stay away from those geese...more for your protectiin than theirs! 🙂

Funny how no one names the coyotes.
LOL!!!! Perhaps because we only have the one peahen and countless coyotes ... unless they truly are "wiley" and it's the same one making the rounds! I personally love our neighborhood coyotes and feel sad that they get such a bad wrap around here. They are only trying to live and survive like the rest of us! And I am smart enough to keep Jasper on a short list when it's dark out as to not have her become their meal!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
