Almost Wordless Wednesday

We had a scary incident yesterday, having to do with guns and shady hunting practices. It made me realize, all over again, that I'll do anything to keep this girl safe.
The innocent minds of dogs don't understand the insanity of some people that could lead them to hurt or kill an innocent dog because they are afraid that the dog will lead people to discover their own unethical or illegal behavior.
That's why we have a responsibility to protect our beloved furry friends. Enough said.

P.S. We are all fine but I feel a heightened sense of worry and responsibility.

  4. Good for you and Shyla! I hope the poacher/s have been arrested and will have the book thrown at them.
    As a treat to offset the drama, and on a happier note, have you seen the news story and vid about the brown bear that investigated the GoPro? Here's a link to the newstory with imbedded video: http://www.newsandstar.co.uk/home/video-cumbrian-student-captures-close-encounter-with-grizzly-bear-1.1169864#
    Really amazing, and made me wonder whose toothmarks you have on your camera!

  8. Growing our girl into a canine good citizen has left her relatively helpless against unsocialized dogs, and that's where we feel the true obligation to protect her. Seems there are more than a few people who take pride in their aggressive animals.

    Glad to hear you managed your way through this situation yesterday.

    I hope the offenders get some education and a fine for breaking the laws and poaching.

  13. That second picture of Shyla is especially precious. She looks so wide-eyed and innocent. She also reminds me of R, with his serious look.

    I'm so glad you're both safe.

  23. Your own safety is something to think about as well. In a secluded area, you never know what someone might think they can get away with.

  26. KB, To think I was only concerned with you and the pups coming across a momma bear and cub, or a mountain lion with her youngster-but now you also need to watch out for Hunters. I well remember, many years ago, a story from New England where hunters would go into peoples yards and property to shoot dear-then accidentally shot a person. Be careful dear friend. You and yours are so valuable and loved!
    Hugs, Noreen
