We were out at sunrise this morning but it was a somewhat more exciting morning than usual. I loved seeing the first sign of the sun, burning through the trees near us.
Almost daily recently, we've been seeing a female moose, who has no calf, near our house. Based on her slightly lanky build, I'm guessing that she's a yearling. It's my first experience with a cow moose who doesn't have a calf to protect. I'm relieved that she runs from people rather than charging them!
This morning, I was photographing Shyla, enjoying the quiet and the light. We'd seen no moose on our way up to this spot.
It was, for the first time in a while, warm enough that we were both comfy. Shyla was even happy to lie in the snow.
A little bit later, we were playing some training games when Shyla's stare at something behind me became intense.
Because Shyla is overly sensitive, I don't always look to see what has caught her attention. I usually see nothing when I look over my shoulder. But, then, she raised her head with serious intensity.
That intensity led me to look over my shoulder. I saw our lone cow moose galloping through the snow behind me. She didn't even glance in our direction although she was quite close to us - I don't think she even saw us. Shyla remained still and silent, thank goodness.
The dog pack and their human turned around when I yelled about the moose to them, and everyone remained unscathed. Shyla and I went back to our training/playing.
I am amazed that I've been blogging for 7 years. I continue to love doing it so I see no reason to stop. It's been the impetus for learning about photography, which I've come to love. And I enjoy meeting all the people and their pets who visit my blog. It's a wonderful community! Thanks for a great 7 years!
