I Don't Think That's a Chihuahua

I can't believe I forgot to tell you about this!

Last week mama and I were exploring the backyard when I smelled something GOOD. I sniffed and sniffed and ran in circles and couldn't get enough of the musky woody scent. Mama said something about my head exploding from sniffing too hard -- at least I think that's what she said. I couldn't really hear her.

So I'm sniffing. Trying to track the scent like I saw a dog doing on TV when all of a sudden there was this CRASH from behind the trees! It looked like a tree came to life! It was big and brown and had all these branches on its head. Leaves went flying and birds flew all over the place.

I'm no dummy so I high-tailed* it out of there, but my mama didn't run so I only got about fifteen feet. That's when that stupid string around my throat jerked me back. She wasn't even paying attention to me. Me! Her baby! She was bent over staring into the trees and kept telling me to come look.


I finally dragged her away to the safety of the front yard. The only things out there are cement, cars, and barking dogs. Just like I like it.

*really my tail was down between my legs.

Poor baby! Don't worry, you will become a seasoned explorer in no time!

If it helps, it was probably more afraid of you than you were of it. :)

What's a explorer?

Adam, I don't think so. I mean... Yeah! I wasn't afraid. I was just sayin' that HERE so the story would be more interesting. I'm not afraid of moving trees that snort and stomp and...

Can we talk about something else now?

It's not running away, it's strategic relocation.

Owen said...

I have to remember that...

Owen, did your mom say what it was? It sounds scary!

You've got so much to learn! And so much adventure ahead of you, too. :)

Hey, those things are called Deer.
They can be mean to a little guy like you.
Best to relocate and gain your bearings.

Then bark like there is no tomorrow and you need to warn everyone in the world.

When you let everyone know they are around they become scared really quickly, and they run away.
