I love reading the adventures of you 'all and your beloved GRs. We have been busy with medical appointments, home hunting, family issues, etc. But on the Dog front the following:
1. Turkeys -- THEY ARE BACK. I won't resurrect my Turkey thread but these pesky herds came out of hibernation. Lucy and I both hate them ... for now ... outside of property line but Lucy is on guard.
2. Deer -- aka Neighborhood pets now. They stand at the property line taunting Lucy. Her bark does not even phase them anymore. Lucy warns them anyway. 🤩
3. Ducks (Donald and Melania) LOL -- they come every year and nest on our property. Currently they swim in our flooded front yard which has 3 ponds. Lucy shows her hunting/flushing skills. 🏅
4. Cranes -- there was two, now only one -- they stand in the ponds and eat roots or whatever. Lucy hunts/flushes them too.
I may not be using the right terms on 3. and 4. but Lucy stalks the fowl in the pools of water. Then full-speed goes after them. If the fowl hops from one pool of water to the next, she does NOT give up and repeats the stalking and full sprint. What I am left with? A soggy stinky GR that is panting like a friggin' freight train. LOL. 🤩 All the above happens every day and has for the last 2 weeks.
