Oh my, watch your little fluffs. It's foxes we have to worry about here, there was an article in the newspaper yesterday about a fox attempting to drag a toddler away by his foot from his garden

I clip my leashes to a caribener on my belt loops

I remember better now: It was something like 50 dog collars they found in that old Eagles nest in Ketchikan, AK.

In Vermont we have to watch out for bears.

I don't see eagles very often but we have a huge hawk problem here.

We have a swimming pool and a deck and we cannot even let the dogs on the deck with us because as soon as a dog comes out the hawks start circling. Everytime we take them out during the day we have to constantly watch above because they are everywhere! And then at night we have owls.

I have two stories about this..

First, I was house sitting for my neighbor and watching his Pomerian. She was fully trained and would not leave the yard and this was my pre-doggie days so I didn't know any better. We would leave her outside with us when we were swimming and one day we were having a BQ and sitting in the yard eating when I started to hear a loud noise. I looked up and saw 3 hawks circling for her. So after that she stayed on the lease.

Second, I was taking my brother's dog out around 9 at night. She is about 20lbs and we were walking from the back yard to the front and once again I heard a loud noise and looked up an owl was watching us. So I hurried up and tried getting her in the house an the owl actually swooped down to get her even though she was on a short leash with me.

Third, I met my friend at the park with my dog because she loves to run and play there. We decided to take a long walk and we were walking in an open area near baseball fields and I looked up and saw that a hawk was flying above and following us. So I had to put Maddie under my shirt and cover her and we had to go back to the car and leave.

That's terrible! I'm near Anchorage. We don't have as many eagles as they do in Southeast Alaska!

I took Gucci out this past Saturday and we looked up to see two hawks circling above the yard. We were both outside with her, as well as our lab, and I THOUGHT that made it safer, but apparently not!!
