No Vacancies

Topsy Tuesday - The dogs spent most of the time barking last night. I went out several times with the search light hoping to a get a bead on what was causing all the fuss... NOTHING that I could see or find. So this gal was very slow on getting out of bed as the sun began to rise. I had very little patience left I admit and so I thought I would take a picture of the sunrise as I waited for the drip, drip, drip of the coffee maker to finish.

I was hearing Chief growl his low unhappy growl - where and what was getting this even tempered boy so upset... I quickly tried to make it to the front door and on to the deck before the reason left my camera sight. I wished I could get a good picture of what was going on. You see there is 7 does in the front yarn but what my camera could not catch farther off was the two dozen or more deer that was standing just outside my camera range. It was all those unwanted guests that had Chief upset. Sophie began to growl and then the pair of them lurched forward and started barking. Not the warning barks but the "Get The Hell Off Our Property" barks. Within a flash all the peaceful nibbling stopped and I had deer running like they where being shot at - I felt so sorry for them because all they wanted was breakfast but I guess the dogs thought this was just too many. I guess they are still a bit touchy after the New Years Eve Party Animals....

So now I know the reason for all the barking in the night - too many guest at the Inn.... Guess I better walk down to the gate at the road and turn the sign over which reads "By Appointment Only"

I think with all the deer staying over there is not room for the coyotes... What is nice is I did get some wonderful pictures as I went down to the mailbox before sunset of the new guests. I love that but am gettling a bit loopy
