This week we had quite an eventful walk at the park. When we first started our walk as we normally do we saw an adult Bald Eagle cruising up the river. They nest not far from this area and we have been seeing them more the past year. It is about time for them to begin their courtship.
Further on we were walking quietly up the road when I thought Luna was just going to the end of the leash to relieve herself, all of a sudden I hear the loudest snarl and she started growling and about dragging me. She happened upon a Racoon that was trying its best to avoid us by lying low in the leaves. I didn't even see it. Of course Luna did. It was a good thing she was on her leash. I would have had a dog to take to the vet no doubt. The Racoon was having nothing to do with her and she wasn't backing down. I pulled her to me and the Racoon took the opportunity to run up a tree and stare at us. It was outraged obviously by how the poor creature screached and snarled. I had never heard such a sound out of a racoon before. Needless to say Luna checked out the tree again today as we walked by. The racoon was no where to be found thankfully.
I hope you are all finished with your shopping, wrapping and are able to enjoy the rest of the build up to the big day.
