I Spy A Deer Friend

What is Landon thinking when his nose is pressed against the fence and his tail is swishing to and fro? I spy a deer friend.

I see you - I spy a deer friend
I see you

Landon freezes in the middle of the yard. He swivels his head and stares into the woods. With a flap of the tail, he engages the springs in his paws and bounces across the backyard to the fence. With that famous bushy tail flapping in excitement, he peeks through the slats and let’s us know he spots one of his deer friends.

Deer just passing through the woods.
Just passing through.

    We’ve had mule deer frequently and Juno wanted to engage them. They saw ‘wolf,’ and declined. Just lovely animals.
