    DefaultDuke has earned a new nickname

    Duke the Deer Chaser. It finally happened last evening as I took the boys for a walk down the lane. A deer bounded across the path about twenty yards in front of us an Duke took off after it. Freckles was noodling in the grass and didn't see it but just saw Duke running away. He stopped when I hollered for him to stay but Duke was long gone. I thought he might end up in the next county but he returned after I called for him a couple of times. I suspect that deer just left him in a cloud of dust.
    Life continues at the country house.

    Good boy, Duke! Those deer are tempting to follow, but staying close to home and returning when called are better.

    We have deer at our cabin, and they are tempting for the dogs to chase! I never understand why mother nature gave them the white tail - it's a flag for predators to follow.

    Yep! That is my concern every time HK goes off after a deer. Something that happens several times every month, 12 months a year. I have seen the deer stop and turn to face her several times. Fortunately, HK response is, 'Okay! If you don't want to play tag, I am going home.' I really don't want to see her get hit in the head with one of those flying hooves.

    Bauer has taken off after them too, but luckily a quick "Let's Go!" and he turns on a dime and comes back.

    Good boy Duke!
