Saturday morning I had to go to work (the price I must pay to have this upcoming vacation, but more about that later this week). As the Man was being a saint and taking my car to get winter tires I wanted to make sure the dogs were good and tired before they were left alone.
Around 7 am we went out. It was frosty but only just below freezing in Celsius (high 20s in F I think) and sunny, so a nice morning for a walk. We just head out and across the field we see some deer running. I stop and let the pups watch, mainly because I want to watch too! The deer then turn, come up the field and are running toward the road we are standing on. The pups start to go crazy! The deer cross our path about 50 metres (160 feet) from where we are standing. It was a buck chasing a doe! It was very amazing!
By this point pup 1 and pup 2 are going crazy and I am being dragged up the road. . It takes all my strength to stay semi-incontrol. Finally I am able to get us turned around and I hope by walking the other way they will settle. I am totally mistaken about this, in fact they were just trying to figure out how to get us through the bush to get back to where the deer were.
It becomes apparent that this walk was not going to happen in a safe fashion, so again I turn them around and head home. We were out for about 10 minutes - went at best like 300 meters in total (about 1000 feet) and I was all sweaty and tired. It was short but it was a good workout!
Sorry no pictures, but it is hard to get pictures when you are holding on for dear life!
That was the mischief! (and no destruction, so maybe they were tired, or thought they had enough mischief!)
