About 6 pm, Hubs looked out the patio door and here is what he saw:
How many Dear Deer do you count?
"4" you say?
Well, check this out:
It was sooooo exciting! They are SO Cute!
We have concluded that we are seeing more deer this year than ever before because there are no dogs living at the houses around us any more. Until the summer of 2013, there was a very barky dachshund at the house to our south that the deer would have had to walk past to get from the creek to our back yard. Even if Ginger wasn't out in the yard, she would have barked at them from the patio door, and she was out a lot in nice weather. Also, the house that is 2 houses to our north had a variety of dogs over the years, often 2 at a time, and they were often out in the yard where they would have barked at the deer in our yard. The people who live there now don't have dogs. Also, at times in the past, the house behind us (seen at the right in the last video) had a dog that was out in the yard a lot. No dogs now, and the deer come! WHO KNEW!!!
That's all my news for now. Tonight we are waiting to find out if we will have 5" more of snow tomorrow - on March 1 !!!
Enjoy the Dear Deer, and come back again soon!
