This spooky walk took place on Thursday, August 18 at approximately 5 am. Lady decided to take both us dogs out at once because she was sore and tired and on day 2 of a migraine and she knew we wouldn't see a living soul at 5 am. She was glad to have us both with her.
We went out under the full moon.
It was misty.
We saw the eyes of our deer friends glowing in the field.
When we were about as far as we were going, 2 km (1.2 mi), we heard it. Yes, for the first time in the 4 years we have lived in the country we heard the the wolf. He let out one long howl. We all froze in place. We could tell he was a bit away. We turned and headed home.
In her head, Lady was thinking "I am now in a horror movie - full moon, misty, country road, alone." She was sure that a werewolf was going to jump out at any time. She decided if that happened she was sacrificing Hailey first, and Phod second. (2 km is a lot of time to imagine what you would do if a wolf or werewolf jumped out, even if you know that is not going to happen - the imagination can take hold).
Later that day, she told the story to some of her coworkers. She had an out of office meeting and when she returned, this was on her desk.
She laughed, but it did reminder her, werewolves exist (but maybe not in the scary form she imagined!)
We probably won't be commenting as much as usual the next few weeks. Lady said we will do our best to visit but she is really, really busy at work getting her clients ready for back to school.
