We’re still on the road and seeing the marvels of this great nation first hand. I don’t have time to write much, but will leave you with this picture of the yellow lab and a curious friend one evening. See you soon!
The lab is well trained to stay around, and come when called. But honestly he’s not a “chaser” but will look to me before taking off after anything. This was really neat though- the deer stood there for about 5 minutes while the lab crept up slowly. The lab jumped a little back and forth, “huffing” a few times as if to ask what this animal was all about. Then the little buck scraped the ground with a hoof and put his head down- and then chased the lab all around the campsite! They stopped and the lab tried to get closer again, almost playing like he does with our other dogs. The deer didn’t run away, but actually chased him a couple more times as if to say it was his territory. The deer never got that close to him as the lab stayed out of range and dodged back and forth, but the dog didn’t try to get too close either. Eventually the deer walked off and I called the lab back.
