We take a morning walk up the street and back, no matter the weather, and when we get back to the house we stop at the end of our long driveway. There the boys sit and I take their leash off and on mark, set, go, they race to the house
As the boys finished their run and stopped for their final potty - that is when I saw it out of the corner of my eye
This is a HUGE hawk! He came swooping in and landed on the light pole above the dogs (they had the cover of the bushes!). Needless to say I started hollering, flapping my arms, jumping, screaming and running as FAST as I could towards him! Of course, the dogs thought I had lost my mind, but at least it did scare the hawk and he took off in the opposite direction and the boys went to the door - WHEW!
I knew he had returned this week to the neighborhood and have been watchful each day, and did check this morning when we went out, which is when he is usually lurking for his morning meal I guess. But I guess he saw them running and thought "snack"
So needless to say, I am now watching them "like a hawk"
He can eat all the rabbits around here, but he is NOT getting my boys!
