Luke sometimes amazes us with how observant and smart he is. I often spend time looking out the windows, checking for wildlife, either the fox we don’t want to see, or the wild turkeys and deer we love to see. Somehow, this dog knows when we see something, even if he can’t see it himself. We are careful not to let on; I’ll usually just quietly tell the Dadz if I see something, and we try so hard not to make a big deal out of it. But he knows….and if I go and take the binoculars out of the drawer? He really knows.
If we’re enjoying watching something, we don’t want to let him out. Not that he can get to whatever is out there, he has his fenced-in yard; but if he barks and runs along the fence he’ll scare it away. On this particular evening, we saw six deer out at the edge of the woods, and poor Luke was not happy that we wouldn’t let him outside. He was making so many funny noises with his whining and carrying on, that I had to take some video. There are four clips in the video, and by the time it gets partway through the second one, the deer have moved closer into the yard and he could now see them. I think you can tell by watching him exactly when that happens. By the third clip, he really starts making some crazy sound effects, so turn up the volume and enjoy his silliness.
