This morning well before the crack of dawn I took Apollo out to do his business. I was standing on the back patio, thinking obout cleaning up my flower beds for winter when Apollo got spooked and started to quietly bark, as if he didn't want to bark too loud or anything. Hmmmm what could it be? He is running away then back, then running towards the door then back again barking at something out in the pitch black distance. I had already turned on the patio lights so I didn't think I would see anything but I decided to check it out anyway since Apollo only acts like that when we are at my in-laws and near the horses. I walked to the side of the patio and in the neighbors yard was a very large doe, with glowing eyes. That would probably scare anyone that had never seen a deer before...he was probably thinking, "yikes, that's really big and it's staring at me with glowing eyes!!! As I was watching, the deer finally turned and walked back into the woods. Apollo very promptly, followed me back into the house! That was a good chuckle first thing in the am
That would scare me too ! Good boy Apollo - alerting Mom to the doe
Hee hee, they are so cute. Toby is scared of anything new...then he gets over it.
