When Moon wandered into our yard, I knew that she was a "survivor." She had to be in order to have made it for as long as she did living off the land. She acts like a dog. I mean her natural instincts tell her to protect, to hunt and sometimes to kill. Remember I told you how Copper had so many homes moving from place to place until we found him? He needs people to survive. He needs to be fed. He needs humans to care for him. He lives to play, please and be praised.
With Moon, on the other hand, it's innate...it's instinct. And, she's good at it. Of course, being Shepherd Husky just makes her work even more. It's in her breed. She likes to be free. She is always alert, ears moving in all directions whether we are walking or just chillin' in the yard. Most of all, she does love to hunt. Here's a few shots of her "working."
So, when Mother Nature delivered our snow in December, we went outside. It was just about dusk which is one of her favorite times to listen for mice and moles buried beneath the earth's surface insulated by a fresh blanket of snow.
She stops and turns, thinking, "Mom, stay back. How can I catch anything if you're making so much noise?"
"Told you, I'd get it if you were quiet!
Gosh, I'm good at this! And I do LOVE IT SO!
Thanks, Mom...just for letting me be ME...A DOG!"
"The loving, innocent world of animals serves as a good example for me. The more you stop to observe animals and learn from them, the healthier and more peaceful your life will be."
