I was walking out back with the pup, musing over where life has taken me, when suddenly The Huntress rushes the back fence. She's silent other than a low growl and the papery hiss of disturbed leaf litter. It was dusky dawn, and through the grey shadows I could see a white form, bobbing, climbing, like a hare scaling the wire but zig-zagging, soundlessly. I'm mesmerized, the dog is frantic, and I realize that it's not a white rabbit or some other shimmering critter I'm seeing but a flagging deer! Off she bounds without a twig or branch to be heard beneath her deft hooves, while the dog ends her own run with a snort as she skids, turns, and trots off to check out the rest of her yard.

Back inside the house the dog now starts whining and pawing the front window, and as I walk over she starts her bark-bark-barking at this dark shape against the dark lawn under the apple tree- a bunny this time, grazing without concern for the racket inside the house. I had to shoo him away before the dog would stop her commotion.

A nice and peaceful Sunday morning :D
